Except that EWR is a star alliance hub not Oneworld.

There are more than enough long haul destinations from mco.

London gatwick
Iceland
Manchester
Dublin
Belfast
Glasgow
Frankfurt
Dubai

And there is a direct flight using a 752 on American from mco to mia so no excuse there.

Actually I can get any number of OneWorld flights from EWR. I don't like MIA and avoid it. Most of the airports you list are secondary and not places I travel to. I prefer LHR so I can use the Tube to and from. I have no need to travel to Dubai or most of those others.

And perhaps you missed where my traveling companion lives in NJ so EWR/PHL/JFK are more convenient.

I don't need excuses. My travel is just fine. It seems you are the one with the complaints.

And again. JFK. Concorde Room.

Well you can fly to London Heathrow from Miami with three airlines.. But then you said you don't like that airport either..

After that the only option for you is Atlanta since you've decided to restrict it so much.

Not that I give a crap.

WTH are you talking about? I never said I had a problem with flying through EWR/PHL/JFK.

You are the one complaining about your flights. I quite enjoy mine. I have a few drinks in the departures lounge, get on the flight, maybe have dinner, put my seat back, and sleep for 5-6 hours.

Oh, one other thing. Concorde Room at JFK. 'Nuff said.
I'd be more than happy to connect in JFK if I had access to the Concorde Room...lol.

I'm not in any elite flyer's club...lol.

I'd just like to avoid the mess like I suffered last time not getting my connection to Paris.

It doesn't help being a Star Alliance member and being in Atlanta.

Fly out of Newark or Washington.

Shame there's no Concorde to go with it.
