SHORT HOP TO THE BIG APPLE!

Welcome to leg 3 of 3 of my trip from CGK-JFK. There was a 1-hour stopover at Vancouver Airport which just consisted of remaining in a seating area by the gate and picking up passengers traveling to New York.
Our bird, B-KPV was cleaned and refueled for the 4:21-minute flight to the USA. Cathay Pacific changed cabin crew on the leg continuing to JFK.

As I am used to 4-hour flights, we quickly made it to the Update NY area relatively quickly and the sun began to peep above the horizon.

The sunlight showed the beautiful cloud patterns and we meandered our way into the metropolitan city.

Taxi to terminal 8 took about 15 minutes. JFK was relatively quiet at 7am. Here is my seat 16A before disembarking this magnificent aircraft. I was sad such an experience came to an end. Did not enjoy the jetlag, though.
