Looking at "PA"
KABE LEHIGH VALLEY INT'L ALLENTOWN PA
Food -- Had lunch at Jack's Creek, about 4 minute drive from FBO Hangar 7. Excellent Fajitas. Lunch special at .95. Yum. Hilton Garden Inn was fine, as usual. Also hear that Canyon Creek has the best hamburgers around. Also about 5 minute drive from the FBO.
Food -- Ate at BETHLEHEM Restaurant about 5 min from the FBO - Good food and standard service for a dinner. FBO will give you a ride there or other places (no crew car but that's ok). About pp, 24 hrs Breakfast, lunch, dinner. FBO mentioned that a mall is 15 min walk from FBO (they will drop though). Saw a movie theater accross from the dinner.
KAGC ALLEGHENY COUNTY PITTSBURGH PA
Food -- Primanti's, a pittsburgh institution for sandwiches, pizza, and local goodies. A chain of 20 restaurant's, about 5 miles from AGC. Worth the drive. Expect good food AND good service.
Food -- Hot Metal Diner: Never again - Sour Milk... with a side of sour attitude. Service was lacking, food was smothered in butter (even the "healthy option"). I know their niche is to have hard nose service but should be a line somewhere and they crossed it. I tried to point out that my Half and Half for my coffee was soured and smelled rancid. It shouldn't be a surprise since they leave it sitting out at room temperature. Their attitude was ridiculous. It made me wonder what other simple food handling rules they ignore. No American Express and can't leave a tip on credit card.
KERI ERIE INTL/TOM RIDGE FIELD ERIE PA
Food -- Get a crew car from Joe and go to Serifinis. Lunch for 2 pilots salad, bread, and pasta was under 20 bucks. Good food.
KFIG CLEARFIELD-LAWRENCE CLEARFIELD PA
Sports -- I use the YMCA at a lot of cities. I walked into this one and walked back out - it was very run down and the locker room make me want to leave and *then* take a shower.
Misc -- If you want wireless internet access the only place I know of is the Sapp Brothers truck stop. The fbo has very little to offer.
KFKL VENANGO REGIONAL FRANKLIN PA
Food -- We got a great lunch right at the airport at Primo Barones,give it a try.
KGKJ PORT MEADVILLE MEADVILLE PA
Food -- Eddies Footlongs, best hotdogs, not kidding. You can walk to it from the "FBO". 1/4 mile from the airport.
KMDT HARRISBURG INTL HARRISBURG PA
Food -- Brownstone Cafe great food and atmosphere. 5 min. from airport.
KPIT PITTSBURGH INT'L PITTSBURGH PA
Food -- Growing up 10 mins away from the airport, my past and current favorite place is 2 minutes (if that) from the airport. It's called Wings Suds and Spuds, right there on University Boulevard. Awesome wings, even better french fries. Whether your killing time at Atlantic or your working for an airline, do yourself a favor and check it out!
KPNE NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA PHILADELPHIA PA
Misc -- Redirected to KPNE due to passenger request, and couldn't have been happier about it. We normally go to PHL, but PNE is our new destination. Radio'd ahead to advise of arrival, girl at desk very friendly. Arrived, line service was slow to assist but the customer service reps quickly picked up slack (even brought out a luggage cart). There are several places to eat in the area, and there is a free crew car. Pilot's lounge is updated, but there isn't a pool table and the wireless was not working 100% - however, the customer service rep let me use her desk as needed in the interim. Overall, price for gas was high but the service inside more than made up for it.
Misc -- While visiting PNE, I chose Atlantic for this trip and I have to say that I wish I would've chosen them for all previous trips as well. First, PNE is a way better alternative to PHL because you do not have to deal with any commercial traffic. As far as Atlantic vs the JetCenter - the Jet Center offers low fuel prices and low customer service to go with those prices. On our last visit we had six pax and a full lav - the line guys refused to do lavs because it was Sunday, but they were kind enough to show us the lav cart if we wanted to do it ourselves. This was the last reason I needed to convince the owners to use Atlantic over the Jet Center. Atlantic's facility is a little more open, but does not have a pool table or hot tub. They do offer complimentary sodas and have a fitness room, and there is are free crew cars and lots of things to do in the area and the girls at the counter are VERY knoweledgable.
Food -- Crew car 3 minutes to the Village Cafe. Good breakfast and lunch buffet. Folks at Atlantic said there was a good bit more close but we didn't have time
FBOs -- Atlantic Aviation has a fitness room at the FBO, so don't forget your gym bag
Food -- PNE is a great alternative to PHL. There are two FBOs on the field, Atlantic and NEPJC. While NEPJC has a nice facility and better fuel pricing, Atlantic is my first choice for several reasons. First: Atlantic bucks. Can't beat them. The service @ Atlantic outside is nice, but quickly gets better on the inside. The ladies at the counter are very friendly, and very helpful with anything you need. They are very familiar with the area, and all attractions / restaurants. The only place I wouldn't go to eat is Red Lobster, other than that there are plenty of choices for great meals.
