After a nice but short weekend in long island with my grandma it was Monday and time to go back to sunny Syracuse 

Monday February 4, 2013
JetBlue Flight#42
KJFK-KSYR
N178JB"its a blue thing"
E190


Flightaware map of the flight.


For all the times we have flown to JFK and have had to wait in extremely long security lines we started to purchase extra leg room seats because that comes with extra speed and you are able to go through a quicker line which saves a lot of time. Its defiantly worth it. Once through security it was time to watch planes land. By gate 16 and 14 there are good views of 31R and 31L and they where in use today. Its a great view there when planes take off on 4L right by the B6 terminal.

After a bumpy approach through the clouds we made a wide left hand turn to line up for landing on runway 28, after a rough landing we taxied straight into gate 15 and exited the plane a few minutes later and then got are bags and where off to the parking garage to get our car. It was a good thing we parked inside it snowed all weekend!!

nice report! while not in a tropical destination, it looks like you were able to at least escape the snow and have some sun in NYC.
