Welcome to another trip report! A few months ago I had planned a family trip to one of my favorite places in the world which is Abu Dhabi & Dubai in the United Arab Emirates. Not to mention that there was a great sale from Salt Lake City to Abu Dhabi via JFK on JetBlue & Etihad Airways for $850 USD which is a great price if you ask me. I was also quite excited as this trip will give me the opportunity to try out two new airlines for me to check off the list 😉.

This is a look at the entire single ticket journey I'll be reporting on. Stay tuned for that next trip report!

My first flight on this long journey to Abu Dhabi would be on JetBlue Airways onboard their Airbus a320 aircraft. As this was an afternoon flight there was no need to wake up super early so we got a luggages ready and headed straight into the airport.

Since this trip was during the pandemic, agents needed to check our negative covid-19 tests before receiving our boarding passes. After a few minutes of handling paperwork we finally received our boarding passes and proceeded to security check point.

Security went smoothly and we made our way to concourse B where JetBlue fly's from.

For this afternoon's flight to JFK, me, my mom & dad will be occupying seats 20 A,B & D for this nearly 4.5hr flight.

I also strategically chose this seat for it's perfect window to seat alignment 😅.

This seat also came with a perfect view of the wing. We are parked next to an American Airlines A321 departing shortly for Dallas/Fort Worth. I've reviewed this flight in a first class report located here.

Last passengers are boarding, this flight will ultimately be around 90% full.

Legroom was of course great and very generous for a standard economy class seat at 34" pitch. Just to give you a bit of context all other airlines like Delta, American & United offer extra legroom seats that are between 33-34" pitch (normal pitch in narrow body jets are between 29-31"). JetBlue is known for having the best standard economy legroom in the market.

The size of the PTV was also great.

We began our pushback from the gate on time.

You could just barely see capital hill & downtown SLC as we taxi to the runway.

inflight entertainment

A look at the inflight entertainment system which was fantastic for a flight of this length.

There were tons of movies and TV shows offered.

As well as an excellent, very detailed interactive moving map. Even better than Delta's I have to say 😅.

inflight service

The onboard service started about an hour into flight starting with the drink cart and later the snack cart.

Heading to New York so had to try Dunkin' coffee which was great!

Later for the snack I went for these cookies which paired perfectly with the coffee.

After the service it got pretty uneventful and decided to watch a movie.

As with all eastbound flights, it started getting dark quite quickly.

Here's a look at the setback contents. Only the safety card was there.

An hour before descent, the FA's offered cups of water. Eventually we began our initial descent as we flew over northern Pennsylvania.

This was a great flight on JetBlue. The seats were very comfortable and legroom was superb. Not to mention the excellent inflight entertainment that was available has to be one of the best in North America, I might even say it's better then Delta in terms of quantity of movies and TV shows offered also it's excellent interactive moving map. Only slight downside I would have to say about this flight would be that the FA's were not in the best of moods on this flight and looked like they already wanted to be home already since this was the same crew that worked the inbound from JFK so I can kinda understand them. Otherwise this was a great first time experience flying with them! :)

    Good that you got one of the newer cabins on this flight that is pushing 5h! It would not be as nice on one of the old A320s cabins with the tiny seatback TVs. JetBlue is a great airlines with so much to love, like better legroom than any other carrier in Y, PTVs on every flight, free Wi-Fi, etc...But with their operations focused in BOS and JFK, they are dismal at on-time performance and have gotten worse in the post-pandemic travel boom. I feel like booking B6 is a gamble now and you have to make sure that you can afford to be late to wherever you're going since it's such a high probability that you'll be delayed. I also wish they had a bigger presence here on the West Coast. It seems like they mostly gave up on the West Coast when they closed down the LGB hub. Hopefully we'll see their operational performance improve soon; they really need it to save their reputation

    Thanks for sharing!
