i was going to see my grandma for the weekend in long island so we flew on jetblue from SYR to JFK

We where supposed to depart @ 9:32am but instead took off from runway 28 @ 9:58am and arrived @ 10:40 am.
after getting checked in and through security in a relatively quick period of time, and with a little time to kill i walked around and looked at the few planes that where at SYR this morning.

N178JB"its a blue thing"
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.
Korean A380 landing on 31L
This A310 caught me off guard landing 31R

Once boarding rapped up , the doors where closed and with a standard greeting and safety demo push back began and a few minutes later began the taxi to 31L
After a quick taxi we began a quick take off roll and where airborne off of 31L and in the canarsie climb.
After a few left turns we where on are way to sunny Syracuse at 22,000 feet it was a smooth and quick ride and the usual "express" service was served with coke diet coke sprite or water and a sweet or salty snack.

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!!
