I arrived at LGA around 2:30ish at the central terminal which includes AA,UA,B6,NK,F9,TZ,FL and I think CO but not 100% sure about that. I walked in and saw no line at the B6 counter so I went up checked my bag got my standby boarding pass and went down to the food court area which has some nice glass windows that overlook AA's gates and the B gates where B6 flies out of. I finished up my salad from Mc Donald’s that I brought with me (I had an NK crew asking me where the Mc Donald’s was when I told them the only one in the airport was at US Airways terminal they had a disappointed look. I finished up and decided I needed a case for my sunglasses so after speaking with one of the cashiers he told me about sunglass hut on the other side of the terminal. I walked from the B side down to the D side which has a UA club room and a nice looking Japanese place called Okyana or something like that. After getting my sunglass class I decided to head down to my gate and see if I had a chance of flying out, I had to Russian guys cut me in the security line which pissed me off and the woman behind me saw it and was like I hate assholes which made me laugh it off.
Cleared security with no problem and went down to my gate, which had a good amount of pax waiting around for the flight. As I was walking down to the gate, I saw two jetBlue pilots and just from a quick glance I noticed the ones shirt was not tucked in and looked a little sloppy and thought that was unusual until I was standing next to her and saw she was at least 5 months pregnant! She would later turn out to be the FO for my flight, which was cool since my song flight had a woman captain. I walked up to the agent who let me know that all standbys would probably get on and as it turns out the woman who was behind me at security was standing by as well.
My aircraft was "I Got Blue Babe" sporting the plaid tail the aircraft was very clean and was full by the time I got on board. I sat down and shortly after we pushed. Tv's came on and I watched a few shows and a movie on USA towards the middle of the flight I also noticed that my seatmates started watching the same thing. Ever have that happen? Where you are watching something next thing you know they turn their tv's to the same program. I just thought it was funny. The only negative thing which is a common thing is when you sit towards the rear of the aircraft everybody stands over your space waiting to use the lav. We actually arrived in FLL about 20-30 minutes early which was cool since I was tired. I deplaned through the rear door which was a first for me. Baggage came down very quickly and even my standby bag showed up which is always a gamble. Overall a great flight and I can't wait to do it again.
