    Thanks for that alert. Snagged one following the LA FT University. And the SFO-IAH segment is a Dreamliner! That wraps up my 1K qualification for the year.:D

    I'm not seeing any weekend overnighters or one day turns. Is this mid-week only?

    Is 42 minutes enough connection time at SFO? I have a flight booked for a same day turnaround (Thank you, btw), and the schedule changed from 58 minutes to 42 minutes. Kinda close. Anyone following this who has done such a tight connection in SFO?

    I am, of course, assuming everything goes as scheduled. The possibility of mx or weather makes me nervous already. If I miss it I'm totally messed up, as I have to fly out of MCO at 6:00 AM the next day.

    I completed this run yesterday (FLL-IAH-SFO-IAH-FLL). All flights were on time or early. The 42 minutes in SFO were plenty for the turn-around. Thanks for the tip!

    You were lucky we had great weather this week. February could have been a rainy mess with lots of delays. But then, if inbound flights are delayed, typically the outbounds are as well, so doesn't mean you necessarily miss a connection.
