Houston, TX Wed. 23 Sep. 2009. I got on the phone with jetBlue in order to book the final two new airports on my list Aguadilla, PR (BQN) and Long Beach, CA (LGB). I had a fantastic itinerary that would have me flying all day on Saturday and easily logging the last two airports.
Unfortunately, the New York-John F. Kennedy, NY (JFK) to Long Beach, CA (LGB) flight at 3:45p on Sat. is booked solid. In addition, the one at 2:30p which goes via Las Vegas, NV (LAS) only gives me a 26 mins connecting time from my Aguadilla, PR (BQN) flight.
I can’t risk a misconnect as @jetBlue is really strict about missing flights and re-booking. Apparently, if you miss a flight you have to wait three days to re-book. How silly is that! So with that said, the next weekend’s routing is booked albeit a boring one:
- Austin, TX (AUS) to Long Beach, CA (LGB) 26 Sep. 2009
- LGB to Oakland, CA (OAK) 26 Sep. 2009
- OAK to New York-John F. Kennedy, NY (JFK) 27 Sep. 2009
Are you jetting off somewhere for the weekend?
