With all the flying I had done during the summer, the 100-minute drive to JFK seemed almost routine.
Terminal 2 houses the majority of Delta's domestic flights. We arrived at 13:38.
Since we booked a 'basic economy' fare, boarding passes could only be printed for whatever reason. I was initially assigned seat 12A. After quickly using the kiosk, we headed towards security.
TSA Precheck is great, and the line only took 2 minutes.
Terminal 2 is pretty small. We made our way towards gate C65.
There are a decent number of restaurants and shops in the surrounding area, but there were no power ports at the gate (unlike T4 and LaGuardia).
Our plane for today - N279PQ, a 3-year-old CRJ900.
AZ A332, KE A388, and EQ A332 hanging out at the adjacent T1.
Boarding began at 14:25. My mom had received an upgrade to Delta Comfort + when we printed our boarding passes, but as she went to board, some sort of an error message came up and she was pulled aside and told to wait. As me and my dad went to board, the same error occurred. For whatever reason, the only way to solve this was to put us all in Comfort +. I'm not complaining.
Down the jetway.
The view from my newly assigned seat 7D.
Lots of legroom (if you read my other reports, you'll notice that travel backpack has also another appearance).
This plane hadn't been rebranded from "Economy Comfort" to "Delta Comfort +" yet.
Looking forwards. I like the excuses for overhead bins on the left side of the first class cabin.
Our captain announced our flying time to be 1h50m. The lead FA made all the announcements in VERY broken English. I really had a difficult time understanding her.
We pushed back 15:08.
Taxi began at 15:14, and as we approached the runway, I could see that the line was really long. If I counted correctly, we were about number 17 in line. Although JFK typically splits the parallel runways as one for arrivals and one for departures, it was a busy time for arrivals and both runways were in use for arrivals, clogging up the departures.
We finally lined up on runway 31L and departed at 15:54 - 55 minutes behind schedule.
We ascended above the clouds.
At 16:30, the typical cookies, crackers, or peanuts were offered, plus a drink. I decided to try the cookies, along with a Sprite, as always.
Surprisingly the cookies are Delta branded! They're actually pretty good.
I wandered to the back of the plane and noticed two things. First, there was not a single empty
As always with these short Delta flights, nothing else really happened, so I'll wrap up crew, seat, and IFE with some picture of the clouds.
The seat was fine for a short flight, and with the extra legroom, I'd sit in it for a longer flight as well. No complaints.
Delta offers free streaming IFE on just about every flight. The selection is pretty small, but it's a great product to offer.
As I mentioned before, the lead member of the crew spoke VERY broken English, so it was rather difficult to understand her.
With that, we touched down in Jacksonville on runway 08 at 17:40, 3 minutes ahead of schedule.
As we pulled into our gate 4 minutes later, we were welcomed to "Jackson" by our broken English crew member. I hope I'm not in Mississippi…
That pretty much it for this report - thanks for reading!
P.S. Since I'm not reporting on the return leg of this flight, this report concludes my flight reports for summer 2016. Look out for more coming this winter!
