My first son Harriharan has joined MS in State University of Buffalo and he left on 7th Aug 2008 by Emirates. There was a transhipment at Dubai and after that he left for New York. He had to spend over 8 hrs to get the connecting flight to Buffalo and reached on 8th morning at 1.30am. Anyone pursuing course in SUNY Buffalo can get in touch with him.
I can give further details and I can be contacted at email@example.com
