In November my mom got a list of conferences that she had to go to for work, and she decided that we would go to Orlando at the beginning of march.. It was a perfect time to go because after a really long winter we got to escape the cold and go to Florida and once you come back its spring!! On the day of the flight, i tracked my flight earlier in the day and found out we would be going on the redsox plane (N605JB) i have wanted to go on the jets plane for a while but it was still pretty cool to go on the redsox plane.
Monday March 4,2013
Scheduled Departure 7:10PM
Actual Departure 7:36PM
Scheduled Arrival 9:53PM
Actual Arrival 9:50PM
Flight Time- 2 hours 14 minutes
We got to the airport around 5pm for the 7:10pm departure to MCO. The airport was actually very busy for SYR. B6 had our flight to MCO and flight 75 headed to JFK before us from the same gate, AWE had a flight to CLT, BOS and DCA and AA had a flight to ORD. So the security line was actually kind of long but jetblue has extra speed if you purchase extra legroom to your flight which we did and this was new at SYR from the last time i had flown to JFK 1 month earlier so it was good that B6 added that, it will be really good for the peak time at SYR which is 5:30-7:30AM every airline has at least one flight most have more then two.
The SYR airport is being redone and is done now and its done now but in march it wasn't so it was kind of laid out differently the check in counter had been moved for construction and had recently been moved back to its original spot.

Once through security terminal "A"
N258JB at our gate departing as flight#75 to JFK.
Gate pushed back ready to go!!
One the JFK flight was gone it was time for our flight.
Our plane arriving as flight 664 from MCO the redsox plane!! it was funny the gate agent made an announcement that we would be flying on the redsox plane and that we might have to cancel our flight because the people working the flight where diehard Yankee fans and wanted nothing to do with the plane
Time for boarding
on this flight there where 16 wheel chairs we where laughing with the gate agent because it looked like a funeral procession just instead of cars it was wheelchairs, and then he said if you think this is bad i got a call about an hour ago from a friend of mine at JFK and he just put 45 wheel chairs on a flight to PBI, im glad i was not on that plane it took about 20 minutes to get like 8 people on the plane imagine 45.
After a long boarding we where ready to go
After a rough climb out through some heavy snow clouds we reached the tops of them at around 16,000feet
so there really wasnt anything to see on the way out
almost to PA
Time for blue chips!!
moving right along
about 40 minutes out of MCO the pilots took there break from the flight deck.
After a smooth flight and down the east coast we began the descent into MCO it was very steep with the spoilers up for alot of it , it was also very quick and withing in we where on final.
sorry for it being so blurry.
