IAD-JFK-IAD On B6

Tue Feb 17, 2009 7:50 am

Couldn't sleep after getting home from work and being a sad single guy on Valentines Day, I decided to pamper the person I love and care for the most which is me : ). Spent two hours browsing the web looking for the cheapest airfares and i came across a $120 r/t a/i fare to JFK from IAD which leaves three hours from when i bought the ticket. So at around 3:30am i took a shower got on to my car and drove to Dulles. There was not a lot of cars on the road, but managed to get myself delayed by taking I-66 off the beltway mistakenly thinking it will take me to the Dulles tollroad. So not wanting to get lost i just took it all the way down to route 28 which is Centreville Road which i used to eventually get to Dulles. I arrived at the airport maybe around 4:40 am being a little early for my 6:10 am flight i decided to walk down to Daily Garage 2 and take a couple of shots......

The check in and going through security was uneventful. Terminal B was seemed deserted took a couple more shots....

Love the way WN decorated their gates

The flight was uneventful was a little bumpy just before landing but it was a fairly smooth touchdown. I love the Jet Blue Potato Chips and kudos to jetblue for giving beverage service on such a short flight : ) got there on time around 7 so I had 14 hours to burn in the greatest city of the world and here are some of my pics.....

LIRR from Jamaica to Penn Station took about 20 minutes after taking the airtrain of course : )

It's time to go back after about 14 hours in the city and about 36 hours without sleep : ) reason why not a lot more pics after this

Awesome job by Jetblue! The F/A gave me five bags of blue chips, and a can of coke for the road, (both of which i asked for and she gave to me with a smile and asked me if i wanted anything else). Might fly them again even though i'm a a Boeing fan, haven't sat foot on an airbus just yet. Just might've if it has jetlue colors : )

What a great idea! I love this. "Hmm, I can't sleep; I think I'll buy tickets to JFK and visit NYC."

High quality pictures throughout.

Sounds like you had fun even though you didn't sleep for 36 hours.

A fun read! Thanks for posting.

That is a good deal.

I am sorry but I laughed when I saw you had the TV on CNN showing the plane crash "nose diving" into a house on board a plane getting ready to fly...

Kinda surprised they aired it really.

Great report! Glad you got to do that for yourself!

Last time I flew on Valentines day was FLL-STL in 2006 on Southwest Airlines.
