DCA-ATL-JFK, Or DCA-MIA-JFK

Sat Nov 04, 2006 10:19 am

For some very odd reason, Delta and American are offering DCA-ATL-JFK and DCA-MIA-JFK for very cheap rates comparable to the Shuttle fares. So basically I have a choice to fly DCA-ATL-JFK with the ATL-JFK leg on a Delta 777, something I've wanted to do for a while....Or I could fly DCA-MIA, have a few hours to head into South Beach and Little Havana and then fly MIA-JFK on an A300 which I just did this summer.

Oh, btw, American is also offering me DCA-LGA-MIA-JFK for the same price...I'm kind of tempted to do that just for the fun (and miles)...Thoughts friends?

Why would anyone go from Washington to New York by the way of Georgia or Florida?

Like I said above, for fun (and miles). It's the start of winter recess for me, and the prices are close so why not do it?

Sure, I'd do the DCA-ATL-JFK instead of the DCA-JFK route. I prefer the MD88 and the 777 rather then a CRJ. That's my option.

I'd do DCA-ATL-JFK, if only for the 777.

ATL can be unpleasant at times, but it is worth it.


Have fun!
