Hey guys, I’m here in the airport waiting to board the plane bound for New York. If you’re interested in random updates through the journey, you can follow my tweets @jaymontano.

I almost wasn’t allowed on the plane due to my ticket saying ‘Jay’ and not my legal name. My real name’s kinda long so everyone (parents/friends etc) calls me Jay. I’m actually Jose Roberto Alvez Montano. Jose Roberto got shortened to Jay R and then just Jay. I think it’s partly a Filipino thing to have so many names.

I noticed Sam J Pullen at the checkin:

I realise that I won’t be able to update on twitter until I get a US MicroSIM. Data roaming charges on Orange would cost the same as the flight over to NYC from UK! I must remember to disable data and roaming once the plane takes off.

Any recommendations for a carrier?

We should be arriving in JFK at around 2pm NYC time. See you soon!

Cheers Nokia and Nokia_Connects for bringing us over and organising the bloggers crew again.
