Newark AirportJune 8, 2017 in the United States
Uneventful flight on United. No one thrown off the flight. Left home at 8. Bus to airport took 2 hours. Check-in lady advised us to go straight to immigration control. Glad we did. It took 90 minutes to get through. Still better than doing it in US after a long flight. Plane was comfortable but mostly rubbish on TV. I watched a Ben Afleck movie and played a very basic match-three video game. Passed the time.
Easy transfer to hotel, via Airtrain and hotel shuttle. Good template for future trips. A bit tired after flight, maybe the aircraft air? Hardly the one small glass of red wine. But, lesson learned - no wine on the way back!
Walked through Jersey Gardens Mall and ate at Applebee's, as planned. Menu seems narrower than we remember. Waiter was good, not the usual gushing American. Tasty Bourbon chicken and shrimp for two + iced water.
Country Inn room is big and spotless. AC fine. Breakfast is basic but they provide fruit.Read more
