At first, we wanted to go To Washington state, but in December, the weather wasn't good, so we turned about New Mexico, because we ski every year at Breck (Colorado) and we love Rockies, so we only could love N-M!
Let's go for this flight operated by Jetblue in A320. Jetblue isn't very reported, in english like in french; and it's my first time with them.
I had finished my previous report from PTP (Guadeloupe) with Norwegian on the AirTrain, from JFK Terminal 1, to the Terminal5, before named TWA Flight Center. All Jetblue flights except flights between midnight and 5am (Terminal 4) are in Terminal5. T5 has a very special look, but i like. AirTrain station is connected to the Terminal with an aerial way. Looks like that from air train. As you see, weather wasn't good on this december day!
We get off the Air train.
And now, go to T5.
on aerial passageway.
T5 Hall, fully dedicated to Jetblue airways.
Here, we check-in ourselves our baggages, and we will drop them, alone. I don't really like this practice, is not faster than old method, and if we need help, we must wait long time at "Help center"…
Well, we drop our baggages (after have paid $15) we go to border police (don't know exact term), but we can't pass prior 5hours before our flight. It's 1:30Pm and we must wait 3p.m. No problem, we use this time to eat, we have take our food from Guadeloupe, so it's very cool, and it's better, because there are not many choices at JFK.
At 2:30p.m, we go on the line, which is very long, but fast, and 30minutes after it's good for us. A 3p.m, we are at inspection post, we are allowed to enter on AirSide part of Terminal.
Weird detail, when the plane is in flight, on the sky, in englsih you say 'En route' (french term).
4:15p.m, night is coming, very early because it's winter, i'm not used, weird. I'm very tired, i woke up at 4:00A.m this morning.
At 7p.m, we eat, a soup for me. It's 8p.m when a first announcement of delay resound. The flight is reprogrammed at 9:30p.m. Official reason evoked is du to bad weather. Finally we go on board at 9:20p.m
In the plane
It's an old, so IFE are small, but I want to sleep, is not a problem for me ! Seats are amazing, very confortable, i like it!
At 9:35, we left our gate to take-off, but the is a long file.
Take-off, it's 10p.m. We have 2hours of delay, not good, but luckily we don't have any flight after ABQ.
I slept the rest of the flight, untilabove Santa-fe, 20minutes before landing.
The plane was equipped with wifi onboard. I didn't test, but I think it works good.
Touchdown at 00:20, at 00:30 we're outside of the plane.
Alaska airlines for Seattle, and SFO.
United to Denver
AA to Dallas F-W
Let's go to the baggage claim, where our baggage arrived quickly.
See you soon for return flights.
again, few terms can be inexact, you can correct me of course, i'll be happy.

Albuquerque historic district by night.
December 25th morning, just in front of the hostel.
New York - JFK
Albuquerque - ABQ
jetBlue : low-cost, but superior than many others. Wifi on-board (like DY). Ordinary US companies catering (AA, DL or UA): speculoos and free drink.
JFK : T5 is pretty, more services than T1 of course.
ABQ: I really like the term "Sunport", it gives an exotic side. Airport is pretty beautiful, not like others americans airport, not too big. With wood, bricks, and of course, adobe, airport is warm. Floor is carpeted (like DEN), it's good for red-eye flights (like B666).
