Another laser incident, first officer was hit in the eye.

Quick question: according to flightaware, this flight flew the kingston nine STAR. According to the arrival charts, the approach freq. should be 127.4 but I couldn't find the flight on that frequency. I actually found it on 125.7 instead (rober)! Anyone know the reason?

It depends on the time of day.  If it's later at night and not too busy 127.4 gets combined into 125.7.  125.7 will end up handling inbound JFK traffic from every direction.  I'm sure this happens only late at night though and into the early morning hours.
