A Sunrise in the City of Brotherly Love to a Clear Day on the Yucatán Peninsula

Yesterday morning I decided to fly Philadelphia to Cancun for no reason other than the fact that I just wanted to. It was a good way to gain flight hours for @AmericanVirtual and it was a beautiful flight. I took off from Philly at about 7:15 and landed in Cancun just before 10:30. I used the American A321 which is used in Real life and flight time was 3 hours and 8 minutes.

Cancun was the 3rd busiest international flight from Philadelphia in 2018 with 269,000 passengers, what 2 cities carried more passengers internationally from Philadelphia?

  • Frankfurt and Montreal
  • Toronto and London
  • Paris and San Juan, Puerto Rico

And I’ve decided that I’m not going to be posting every single day, I believe I’ve been doing it for the past month and a half but at this point it’s becoming less fun to do and more a chore. I’m not saying I’m going to stop posting, but it’ll probably be about every other day instead of daily

Thanks! I always love flying down the East Coast (I’m actually flying to Miami right now from Philly in IF). And like I said I’ll still be posting very frequently, just not every day :)

Thanks! I wouldn’t exactly call the landing smooth, but the scenery of Cancun was great 😂! And the Florida Keys have the best views on the country
