I hate going to JFK airport. But I'll do it to take the non-stop Delta flight to Venice. I can leave on a Friday night and be in my apartment in Venice in time for lunch the next day. Now, if you live in Atlanta, you can enjoy a non-top. From our friends at Buongiorno Venezia:
Americans are arriving in Venice in ever greater numbers. As confirmation of this two weeks ago, a third non-stop flight was inaugurated between the U.S. and Venice. As of Wednesday 7 June, there has been a daily link between Venice and Atlanta, adding to the daily flights from New York and Philadelphia. Delta is the carrier on the Atlanta and New York routes, while U.S. Air flies from Philadelphia. For the occasion, the new American ambassador to Italy, Ronald P. Spogli, arrived in Venice for the first time and, during his inaugural address, underlined the fondness of Americans for Venice and Veneto. He supported his assertion by pointing out that the new flight, originally scheduled only for the summer months, was extended year 'round.
