$ 650 in India, $ 472 in Japan and $ 269 in Jamaica (these are round trips!) Are some serious COVID era aircraft deals.
A review of news from the Philadelphia area.
International Flights from Philadelphia (Hooray?) Resume
Lately, there has been a lot of discussion: Will you eat inside a restaurant in Philadelphia? (I will. Others, not so much.) Will or would not you go to see a movie inside a theater? (I’m not thinking so. I’re just replaying that movie theater scene blast in my head.) But here’s one for you: Are you going on a Philadelphia flight to Tokyo, South Africa or Colombia now?
If your answer is yes (I am in the waiting mode until 2021, methinks), I have good news for you! International flights resumed from Philadelphia on Monday morning after a six-month blockade.
On behalf of the PHL Airport community, we would like to thank the CDC, the White House, the U.S. Department of Transportation and the Department of Homeland Security for their role in this decision that allows PHL to once again accept transatlantic flights and passengers, airport CEO Chellie Cameron said in a statement. We are grateful for the support of numerous regional members of Congress who served as PHL attorneys in Washington on this issue.
I decided to look at the prices on some international flights from Philadelphia during the Thanksgiving holiday and of course there are deals to be made.
Let’s say you want to go to Tokyo during Thanksgiving. You can fly from Philadelphia to Tokyo that week for just $ 472 round trip. No, it is not a typo. This is what Air Canada is selling tickets for now. And indeed, American and United are both at the same price.
Or maybe you have always wanted to visit Cape Town, South Africa. Just $ 814 round trip from Philadelphia to Qatar Airways during Thanksgiving vacation is an honest bargain. And that’s just one stop, not some crazy multi-stop itinerary.
Some other examples of international return flights from Philadelphia during Thanksgiving: $ 570 to Paris on Aer Lingus; $ 550 for Iceland (Iceland rocks!) On JetBlue; under $ 650 for Delhi (I think I paid three times more than flying to and from India) to Qatar; $ 269 for Kingston, Jamaica, on JetBlue; $ 218 for DR in US; and $ 295 (!!!) to Bogot,, albeit on the worst airline in the world.
Send me a postcard. Maybe just do not lick the seal.
Keep in mind that travel restrictions remain in place for some countries, and this can change at any time.
If you think the idea of getting on a plane anytime in the near future is just crazy, maybe these moving departures are more your speed.
Talking about things flying over Philly
I know it’s easy to switch to scary apocalypse mode these days. So I feel like I need to say this. Consider it a PSA.
If you happen to see an ominous number of birds in the sky over Philadelphia on Monday, it’s not the end of the world. I mean, we could very well be near the end of the world, but these big flocks of birds don’t show that.
Apparently, right now is when about 900 million birds from North America are doing the migration thing you learned about in elementary school. And according to CastC Bird, a Cornell, UMass and Colorado State project, Philadelphia is expected to see peak migration levels Monday through Tuesday.
The BirdCast model predicts a peak night of high-intensity migratory bird migration, reads a signal for BirdCast. Check your local patch, listen through your window and look at the sky day and night to see what migrants are moving through your area. Remember that high-intensity night migration may not necessarily mean a brilliant bird day; rather it means that a large number of birds migrate or are projected to migrate at night! Go out to watch and listen, and then please submit your observations eBird!
I have never heard of this BirdCast thing before today. But it seems like a nice distraction from everything else that’s going on. Or you can just take the step back The masked singer. whew
More than 250,000 Philadelphians have been approved for ballot papers by mail
On Monday, the Philadelphia City Commissioners (the people responsible for our election) released some statistics regarding the ever-controversial mail voting process here. As of Thursday, the office had approved more than 250,000 postal ballots for Philadelphians, 215,841 for registered Democrats, 14,671 for registered Republicans, and 20,090 for all other parties.
The age division looks like this:
The deadline to apply for a mailing ballot in Pennsylvania (i.e., the deadline for your local election office to pick it up) is October 27, but you of course I do not want to wait that long. And as City Commissioner Al Schmidt pointed out to me last week, don’t let the ballot papers close on your kitchen counter once you get it. Fill in the damn thing and send it ASAP.
