Hi,

I recommend you reach out to [email protected] if you expect ATC on arrival. We - ZNY - have not been informed about this group flight. 

EDIT: Also, there is no such thing as 26:00z. You mean 02:00z…

Maybe we should all get used to 30 hours format so that its easier for North Americans to calculate their local time without having the date mistaken!

We are in touch with someone from ZNY now.

Thanks!

You write 26z Saturday instead of 02z Sunday so that ppl know its still Saturday evening local time rather than sunday
