Delta Express

Yeah, it's a "no frills" flight, but you can put up with it for 2 hrs. It's really cheap and Delta is always on time.

I've flown Delta Express from MCO-EWR a few times and it was really good. The Delta terminal at MCO is really nice.

Lets see....Delta Express - cramped seating, loud 737-200's, no TV's, for a resonable price......or JetBlue - Roomy leather seats, new A320's, 24 channels of DirectTV for a resonable price. Tough choice, but I'm sure you'll make the right decision  Big grin


DLX will probably be around $185 R/T per person.
JB (if you book on the website)is around $188 R/T per person.

Yes, Airside 4 was the flagship of MCO's design - until they completed airside 2 (gates 100-129, SWA, JetBlue, et. al.). Airside 2 is replete with 2 stained glass windows, mosaic tile floors, native art, and beautiful architectural design - a truly beautiful sight to behold in terms of airport design. I used to go there and sit on my planewatching trips just to admire the architecture (before it was closed to the non-traveling public, of course!). For that reason (and, of course, the really comfortable seats) I would have to suggest JetBlue hands down!

I priced April 10th departure and April 20th arrival (JFK-MCO-JFK). Delta Express was $167, jetBlue was $173. I'd spend the extra six bucks.
