Miami to New York

We left the hotel at about 8.45 am and had a very smooth, quick run to the airport. A very nice black gentleman, Freddie Williams helped us with kerbside check in. Phil's bag was a few pounds over so we transferred some of his things to my bag and we were good to go. Paid $50 for the privilege of flying USA domestic.
Security was okay too but they took our water bottles off us. I knew they would because they were full. At the moment we don't have seating together but as soon as the desk opens at our gate, we will try to remedy that. We are sorry to be leaving Miami. It has a nice beachy feel to it and we now wish we had chosen to stay a bit longer. A few photos of our serviced apartment in Miami. Would recommend it to anyone.
Changed our seat allocation so we could sit together. The American Airlines flight to New York took two and a half hours. It was a very smooth flight and we were only served a drink on the flight, even though it went over lunch time. Have you ever seen a hostie sitting down reading a book? Because they don't serve food, they don't have much to do on the flight, but we liked American Airlines much better than Delta and United.
Had a 10 minute taxi ride to our hotel, the Garden Suites which is quite nice and located very close to JFK airport. We will be flying home to Canberra tomorrow evening at 7pm, via Los Angeles and Sydney. Breakfast is available at this hotel but no evening meal. Because it is so close to the airport, there are no restaurants within walking distance, so we just ordered in Chinese and Indian. Looking forward to getting home to normal food but not looking forward to cooking it!
