GFL Airport Diner
Pilot's flying into Glens Falls (NY) GFL in the 90s may remember "Tessie Twitchel's Airport Diner" on the field. Tessie is quite a character. She sold the business when the local politicians raised her rent and made life rather unpleasant.

Well, the diner has been through several different sets of hands since then, always open, and 2 weeks ago it changed hands once again. New owner: Mike. Mike's hired Tessie (back) to waitress (and teach him the ropes) part-time. So when I flew in for breakfast this morning, I was pleasantly surpised to see that the name of the place had been changed (back) to "Airport Diner" and Tessie was behind the counter. Nothin' fancy. Menu pretty basic.

The linemen at GFL do an outstanding job. They always welcome you on the radio and park you. They also help you pull out of the parking space giving you handsignals. Fuel, of course, is available and it's a pleasure to do business here.

I recommend GFL for breakfast or lunch. Big windows overlooking the ramp and runways, very reasonable cost, good ground personnel, and now, of course, Tessie.
