The NFL draft is upon us.

And in Philadelphia, there has been plenty of speculation about where the Philadelphia Eagles are going to ultimately pick and which players will be a member of the Eagles by the end of the weekend.

Apple Vacations works with several of the NFL teams on come-along trips and calendar shoots, so we often follow teams from season-to-season. Over the years we’ve had the honor of hosting two local legends in resort – Eagles pro–bowl wide receivers, Mike Quick (#82) & Harold Carmichael (#17). Both are still very active in the Philadelphia sports community.

Frontier Airlines System Weekend (3/6/15 – 3/7/15) Transition

* In an effort to enhance the travel experience, Frontier Airlines will transition to a new reservation and airport check-in system this weekend. The upgrade is scheduled to occur in the overnight hours beginning Friday night (3/6/15) into early Saturday morning (3/7/15).

* We strongly suggest that passengers traveling this weekend, through Sunday, arrive at the airport early to check-in. Most Frontier ticket counters will be open 3 hours prior to scheduled departure time. In the following cities the ticket counter will open 2 hours prior to departure: Atlanta, Cleveland, Indianapolis, Miami, Milwaukee, Orlando, Philadelphia and Trenton. Early arrival will help ensure that Frontier gets everyone checked in and ready for departure. Passengers needing assistance with their Frontier flight on the day of travel should visit the Frontier Airlines ticket counter.

* For those traveling on Sunday, please remember that Daylight Savings time begins Saturday night (in most states) and clocks will need to be set one hour forward.

* Frontier Airlines has worked hard for many months to ensure the transition is as seamless as possible for passengers. However, they ask for your patience during the check-in process as their agents get acclimated to the new environment.
