Dude, flight will be filed over ar21, no farther then our offshore routings for our south Florida flying. I have a pretty good understanding of JetBlue flight plans, I am a bus pilot at our company.
Nice to meet you, I am with your Technical Supply Chain Logistics Crew. Next time you are at Hangar 81, stop by!
Thank you for your detailed response! Again, I have never taken us on a flight that far west in the Caribbean, the furthest west I have gone was D.R., and we lost TV
about 45 minutes after wheels up and we didn't see land the entire way down (or back up, actually). Seriously, departed 31L, turned over Floyd Bennet Field, turned again over the Atlantic, watched NJ
get further and further away, didn't see land again until we started seeing some of the islands down south. Cookie cutter, every flight I've taken down to the Caribbean LOL (except one time I departed on 4L)!! Who knows, maybe its just my luck that my flights go so far out over the water....I do have pretty crappy luck when it comes to flights LOL!!! I never asked my Flight Crew about the routing before, I just assumed it was the norm sine it is all I experienced, I just introduce myself, let them know where I am sitting, help clean the plane and get to work (yup, every time I have been down the the Caribbean, it was for work and not pleasure
). As you referenced, all my flights were halfway out to BDA (which I have also been to, for work, and can honestly say that I have never felt so......isolated! MAN that island is OUT THERE LOL!) because I was going to places further east. Thanks again for the detailed response, stop by and visit sometime!

You do realize where GCM is in the Caribbean right? When I have done KX from JFK...we came down over ATL, over western Cuba
No, I have no understanding of GCM
being in the Caribbean...especially since I said the word "Cribbean" multiple times just in the text that you quoted and my other posts
I was giving my experiences of the MANY other flights I have taken to OTHER destinations....also in the Caribbean...but further to the east where apparently I got different routing and therefore my IFE experience was much different. I have been to the D.R., P.R., BGI
, I have been to more on other carriers) all which are much further east than GCM
