Question on traveling to NYC in February

Sat Oct 05, 2019 7:00 pm

So I’m just stuck on which flights to pick, need help lol.

Traveling from SAT - NYC in February to spend wekend with friends.

Not sure if I should :

1- fly southwest into LGA with connections both ways in Dallas . Have enough points for free flight. Times not that great.

2- take United non stop to EWR, just pricey for Feb 7-10

3- fly delta or AA nonstop to JFK

Just hard going in winter. Staying at Hudson hotel.
What are your thoughts ...

I would skip UA as there is no reason to a premium to fly with them. Also wouldn't fly AA if you have DL as an option. Operationally, AA is just terrible when there are delays/cancellations.

So that leaves either DL or WN. If your WN points won't expire anytime soon and you will be able to use them on another trip might be worth saving them and just take the DL nonstop.

I'd pick any itinerary into LGA over EWR or JFK. Just so much closer to the city if you're planning to take a cab. 2nd choice would be JFK because you can still take the Airtrain/subway if you're on a budget. Take the E from Jamaica to 7th Ave/53rd which is only a few blocks from the Hudson Hotel.

I'd opt for DL and either drive to IAH and get on the A220 flights intoJFK or LGA or grab a cheap (if there is such a thing) on UA to IAH and then with a couple of hours connect to the DL flights. There is also JetBlue flights from IAH to JFK, although it may be just once a day.
