PART III: MAN-JFK in J on VS (COMING SOON) JFK-SFO in Delta ONE (COMING SOON)
This flight was purchased as an award for ~12,000 flying blue miles (oneway) plus $26 per person. The revenue ticket would have cost $460 because this flight was booked last minute.
LETS GET FLYING!!!
We arrived at the airport about 3 hrs in advance. There was no line at the AF/KL checkin desk. Because this was an award ticket, we got a free checked luggage allowance which is a really nice touch. Thanks KLM!!
Security was efficient and soon we were in the schengen-flights boarding area!
The architecture of the terminal was quite brutalist but the low ceilings made it claustraphobic
Plane spotting was okay. Here are some shots of the late afternoon traffic:
My first sighting of a bombardier CS-100! The first one delivered too!!!!! An LX special livery jet too!
Our beautiful 737! Named "Blackbird":
My legroom was nice:
A nice vomit bag indeed!
And his highness the tray table!
Out the window:
A delay of an hour was announced, but it only turned out to be about 45 mins. The crew were great about helping out connecting pax and keeping everybody informed. Kudos!
