While I am glad to see that there will now be a direct flight from Atlanta (as this is where we fly out of), I am sorry to see that it is not going to take place until the end of the year. I am also disheartened to see that the flights will only be on Saturdays, but I guess that's better than what the options are now.

Wish they would bump the date up a couple of months as we leave Atlanta in October. Oh well, guess we'll have to come back after December. wink
