What the Patriots' landing at Logan yesterday was like

Jen braved the storm to video planes landing at Logan during the storm yesterday. Around 11 a.m., she captured a Virgin 747 coming in. The Patriots took a Virgin charter back from London. Could that have been them?

They seem like they are spending quite a lot of money and are very polite, well dressed, don't block sidewalks, etc. In other words, model tourists.

Here was a piece NPR did on a restauranteur in the North End modifying menus and portions to be more compatible with Japanese preferences once this JAL flight was started:
