Waiting around 3 hours was not fun, but JetBlue gave everyone $50 refund for the delay, free movies (besides the free Direct TV) and the plane itself is simply awesome.What really bothered me was watching the JetBlue plane load up for for one of their newest destinations, the privatized Stewart Interanational, which is currently being bought back by Port of New York and New Jersey from National Express for 88 million. What I also found incredible that this morning I was on one of three flights for Boston to Fort Lauderdale.
Just like the flight down, the leg room, the leather seats and the Direct TV (fee speaker phones) is the best and make the flight a breeze. Leaving Boston, the wait for the bags was not bad, but parking cost $88 for 4 days and the drive home was brutal. There is a market here for JetBlue either with a code sharing agreement with Cape Air or, I still believe, a diversion of two of the ten Embraers from Boston to ORH. Are we talking to JetBlue or Cape Air?
- April 3rd posting from Cranky Flier indicates Skybus is looking at Portsmouth, NH. Thanks Matt. Are we talking to Skybus?
- South Florida is looking to improve large Section of Route 595. If the government does it themselves, it is projected the costs and time will be too high. As a result they are considering a sale of this section to a private party, who will then install tolls. Great story in the Sun Sentinel.
