Atlanta on jetBlue A320 & E190

I had a long weekend, and was meeting some family in Atlanta. When I was looking at options, there were flights on American, Delta and jetBlue. Some of my family were flying jetBlue, so I decided to meet them in BOS and take the same flight. I was taking an overnight from PHX. I got to the airport a...

Re: Flying during Coronavirus on American & Delta

I guess I hadn't considered that many of the restaurants at even a large airport like LHR will likely be shuttered. Hopefully I don't go hungry. It was really strange seeing the airports like that. Almost all of the restaurants were closed. ORD and DTW had a couple places open. SNA and PHX only had...

Re: Flying during Coronavirus on American & Delta

I'm impressed with the bag that DL provided. Great TR. I'm sure some of those sights at normally-bustling airports like ORD and PHX were eerie. The DL flights were better, AA gave out nothing. It was definitely strange seeing the airports empty. DL only had 9 departures at PHX, the day i was flying.
