JFK Move Team is positioning Remain Overnight (RON) aircraft at T5 for the morning launch.

As of 1 a.m. EDT, there are 8 aircraft at T5 gates.  These aren’t arriving flights – these are the Remain Overnight aircraft (RONs, in airline parlance).  These RONs were towed from T6 by the Most Excellent JFK Move Team and parked at their new home gates at T5.  It’s finally feeling real – with aircraft at the gates, it sure does look like our home sweet home. 

Our first official arrival, Flight 358 from Burbank, is tracking on-time for 5:03 a.m.
