As we have for the last .... years, we'll be staying home! Going out on a night when people who don't drink all year, DO and DRIVE makes us very happy to stay home where we're safe !

I'll also be following John Heald's New Year's eve in NY on the Carnival site.

I may make something out of black-eyed-peas, Good Luck for the year !

Happy New Year to everyone!

Since I moved to Florida I have heard nothing about "First Night" Celebrations. These are alcohol free family oriented events going on at various places in the city usually ending with fireworks. I used to enjoy the celebrations in Concord NH. One year I took Patty to a "First Night" in Wolfeboro NH. She loved seeing the parade and the fireworks. I know that Boston use to have a "First Night" too. Is that still happening Trip? Since I have been in Florida I have stayed home every year.

I work NY Eve until 10:45 PM and the next day from 2:15 to 10:45 PM. I plan on going home, slicing some cheese, add some crackers and open a bottle of Chilean Red and enjoying NY Eve. Then on NY Day, I hope somehow to catch part of the Rose Bowl between Wisconsin and those boys from Texas somewhere while I am at work..............................

One good thing is a marching band did make it to NYC..I didn't catch where they came in from....That's a very good thing!
Fundamentally, the problem is that flights now are normlly over 80% full, and probably even more full over the holiday period.

If an airline has sold 80% of its seats into and out of a city (New York, for example) and it has to cancel one day's flights, those passengers will fill all available seats for the next four days unless the airline operates extra flights to clear out the backlog. Further, customers who hold confirmed reservations on the operating flights have priority for those flights so the people whose flights were cancelled have to wait.

If an airline has sold 90% of its seats into and out of a city, as is very likely during the holiday period, the situation is even worse. It will take nine days to clear out the backlog without extra flights.

But actually, an airline that uses an affected city as a hub might be able to free up some capacity by rerouting some passengers through another hub.

Norm.
