JetBlue Airlines | New York to Los Angeles | I have lost my virginity, once again. Hey wait a minute, what are you thinking about… I meant on flying a new Airlines I have never flown before. Yes this morning I was really excited to be flying JetBlue Airlines for the first time. Overall experience and verdict… Sorry but not quite impressed.
Let’s get it straight, Domestic Air Travel in the United States is pretty basic, with the exception of some airlines like Virgin America… Now let’s break this down, the PERKS of flying JetBlue are to be measure on Price, Pre Boarding Services and Alliances with International carriers like Emirates and South African Airways.
JetBlue Terminal 5 in JFK International Airport is AMAZING. From the free high speed WiFi to the shops and restaurants, but to me, JetBlue as an airline does not stand to the expectations…
The Onboard PROS are: EML (Even More Legroom), Direct TV entertainment, 1st. Bag is FREE and the alliances with International Airlines. The Negative: no Onboard WiFi (come on really… how about my Facebook, Twitter and Blogging withdrawal. ?), no decent meals service (on over 6 hours flights) and to top it all On Demand Movies (USD 6 x movie).
I have to admit, I was quite intrigue to fly and try JetBlue Airlines, but unfortunately they did not get even close to my expectation and to the image they try to promote or sell. Hey if you are going for the price value, then GO for it. Service is acceptable, timing is perfect and seats are very comfortable. But that is about it… spoiled travelers like me, there are a few other options out there to tour around the United States and Canada.
This is an inside joke and note for close friends and people that do know me…… I felt like in heaven when I found out about the synergy between JetBlue and Dunkin Donuts, but unfortunately not even that was enough.
America might run on Dunkin, now does it flies on JetBlue. ? I have to admit… the flight was SOLD OUT. If the question is Would I fly them again. ? Hell yes, but only if looking for good fares. Get it ? Cheers from California. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
