I flew to New York on a friend's buddy pass who moved there from San Antonio after getting a job as a jetBlue flight attendant. Here is my trip report

jetBlue Airways
N548JB (BlueBerry)
MSY-JFK
Flight 80
Seat: 19A
Actual Departure: 11:27
Actual Arrival: 15:02

I arrived at MSY 3 hours before my scheduled flight and checked in. The Agents were real real nice and put me on standby. (I guess because I had a buddypass). There were some seats open so they assigned me 19A. I waited at Gate D5 and 'Blueberry' Pulled up. I think this is jetBlue's Newest Plane, or one of the newest. After they deplaned, they boarded us, and I took my seat. The Flight Attendants smiled as we boarded with Jeanette as the Lead Flight Attendant. I took my seat in 19A and looked out the window. I plugged in my headphones and looked down at the ground. I felt so tall because the A320 is considerably higher off the ground than a 717. We Pushed back at 11:26 and taxied to the runway (I don't know MSYs numbers as this is my first time flying out). We took off (Very Quick) and climbed to 8,000 until we reached over Bay St. Louis, and then continued out climb. We leveled off at FL390 for our flight to JFK. The A320 is Very Quiet. I turned my PTV on Animal Planet and watched THATS MY BABY and PLANETS FUNNIEST ANIMALS before turning it on Boomerang and watching some old fashioned Cartoons. After watching the TV, I turned it off, and practiced some of that Airplane Yoga. That stuff is tough when you are in the confines of an airplane seat. After I finished Yoga, On this flight, they served BlueBerry Muffins, and many other snacks. I chose the Muffins and some Diet Coke. (I don't know why, but I was wanting some Diet Coke). After finishing my sample Yoga Lessons. I hit the seat (Went to Sleep). I slept for about 15 minutes (Ok, So I didn't sleep at all, but closed my eyes). For the remainder of the flight, I watched the Flitetracker so I could see where we were. As we got closer to JFK, we began our descent. Our Pilot made a steep descent. This flight brought tears to my eyes because we flew over "Ground Zero" and I must say that it looks really really good (Very Sad, but the crews did a nice job cleaning it up). We landed in JFK 3 minutes early (On My watch). We taxied to the gate and I took a few pictures of the cabin before I got off. The aircraft smelled very very new and for my first flight on an airbus, I must say she performed BEAUTIFULLY. I visited the cockpit after the pilots had come out and got some pictures. Overall, My first flight on jetBlue was wonderful. WONDERFUL!!!!

Eric met me at the airport baggage claim and we went to eat at Grimaldi’s Pizzeria. That was some Darn Delicious Pizza. Afterwards, We went Cruisin around in his 2002 Ford Mustang (Outfitted very nicely) and saw the town. He asked if I would like to stay in a hotel, or go back to his house and sleep on the couchbed. I preferred the Hotel. So he checked me in, and he stayed for a little while, but then he went home. He came back to my room at 04:30 and woke me from my slumber. Not a very good night's rest, but that is why I am just now typing this trip report. I just woke up.

jetBlue Airways
N519JB (It had to be Blue)
JFK-MSY
Flight 79
Seat: 9F
Actual Departure: 08:39
Actual Arrival: 10:48

After we arrived at JFK, I checked in (This time Eric presented his airline badge, as he was coming with me to MSY because he was on his week's vacation.) So we checked in and he got seat 11A because the flight was almost full. We took off at 8:39 AM and climbed directly to FL410 after turning a bit. During Takeoff, we encountered a little bit of turbulence, but we got out of it quick. I slept for the most part of this flight (I was tired with only 3 hours of sleep). I had some Apple Juice, but declined the snack because My Stomach was hurting from the Grimaldi's the night before (I ate too much). I woke up during the last 30 minutes of the flight. After we landed and Full Thrust Reverse. We taxied to the gate and deplaned where I exited the concourse with Eric. My mom was not expecting to meet Eric, because I didn't even know he was coming to MSY with me. We gave him a ride to a hotel and I said Goodbye. He gave me the best news because he said I was on his permanent buddy list, and whenever he comes down here, I can fly jetBlue whenever I want. I enjoyed my trip on jetBlue and I told Eric that I would like to be a revenue passenger at least once. After Dropping him off, we came home, back home to Ocean Springs. It never felt better to be home.

About the plane back. I toured N519JB on 7/25/01 when jetBlue made their inaugural flight to MSY from JFK. so that was kind of Ironic.

I hope you enjoyed my trip report, and I hope to have some more coming my way. errr... your way.  Smile

548 was the newest at the time, delevered on 10-23-02. 550 is next, and is at MCO right now getting the PTV's installed (probably leaving tonight or tomorrow I'd imagine). I get to fly on them Dec 9th, it's been a good 9 months since I last flew them, I miss it. Glad you enjoyed the flight.

Cactus,

Justin used to fly them to JFK from MCO with Mr. B. Stevenson. Now I get to have as much fun as they had back then.  Smile

The Thing about this is I don't think I need TrueBlue anymore. I have an insider now.

Justin, Don't you get Unlimited AirTran rides now. If you do, I'd have to call you LUCKY!!!!!. I'd rather fly to ATL on a 717 than spend a weekend in New York.

The Flight was about 2-1/2 to 3 hours. The times are above. That 2.75 hour flight felt more like 1 hour. I had alot of fun. The flight back was slower. Even though Eric was on the same flight, We didn't talk much until the Seat Belt sign went off.

For those who haven't tried jetBlue. I recommend them with a 5-Star.

I wasn't aware of this FAA regulation.

Jason, When the seatbelt sign was on, we could not get up. When the captain turned it off, I got up and went to Eric's seat and talked to him. Is that better?

No, I don't get unlimited FL flights. But I did send them a resume last week...that could all change possibly if I get a job with them.

Adding onto what Dazed said, N550 is indeed the next aircraft, and I believe it is "Sacre Blue".

I have a list of future names somewhere....
