Weekend In The City On B6

Sun Sep 08, 2013 4:23 am

In December 2011 my aunt had her 50th birthday party in NYC so we went down to celebrate with her.

Friday December 9,2011
Syracuse,NY(SYR) -New York City(JFK)
Flight#75
Departure runway-28
Arrival runway 22L
Departure gate-15
Arrival gate-17
Airbus A320 N760JB "The blues where made for flying" seat 3A
The Flight was scheduled to leave at 4:46PM so my mom took off the afternoon from work and she picked us from school at 1:30PM and we went home and packed and drove to SYR. We where meeting my other aunt at SYR she was coming to, At SYR you could for the most part arrive 45-1 hour early and make your flight you should be just fine but since it was a friday night to JFK and 6AM and 5PM are the busiest time we got there about 245PM 2 hours early. The bad thing about the night flight to JFK depending on the time of the year its between 4:45 and7:45PM is that it gets delayed like 7 or 8 times out of 10. Ive been on this flight and been delayed between 30 mins and 4 hours. Tonight we boarded pushed back and started our taxi and i thought we lucked out but no such luck..

After i boarded there was a FA who is based in JFK and lives in SYR and he has been on a few of the flights ive been on from JFK-SYR or SYR-FK and he was in my seat 3A and i had 3A my mom had 3C and no one in the middle and he wanted a window so he moved to a empty 4A

looking forward during boarding
After they closed the door we pushed back and started our taxi to runway 28 but right before where about to reach the runway(runway 33) that you have to cross to get to runway 28 we turned on to taxiway M(mike) and backtracked the way most planes use M so i thought we where gonna use runway 15 which is opposite 33 but instead we turned right onto S(sierra)and taxied onto runway 15 and shut down the engines and the pilot made an announcement that there was a ground delay program at JFK and we would have to hold here for about an hour it turned out to only be 45mins or so but as i said earlier this flight on friday never usally leaves ontime and tonight wasnt any different.

Great trip report on my favorite airline B6! I am sort of surprised that they use an A320 for that route considering the load factors as you mentioned. I am trying to plan a flight to MCO but the prices are much higher then other airlines including DELTA! Come on jetBlue, what happen to the low fares?

i know .. the load is usually actually pretty high but that day it wasn't , and depending on the time of the year they change planes.. this was back in DEC 2011 now its all E190's with one daily A320 to MCO.

We just booked a flight to Orlando in February and it coast us about 1600 for 4 people. We do have the EMS seats, so the price isn’t that bad.
