The day we requested did not have enough passengers to fly, so we were moved to a date that put a lot of strain on our schedule. You do need to get there early, so you can go through airport security checkpoints. If you take this flight... DEMAND you sit in the first 2 rows. All other seats are very obstructed by the wings of the aircraft, and no matter how much they tell you people move around, however that is not the case. Honestly the people with the best views are the pilots. We did see the Aurora, however its not worth the hassle.
