In all of my years of flying, a recent trip to Antigua was my first time flying JetBlue. I was impressed with JetBlue’s beautiful Terminal 5 at John F. Kennedy International Airport. It boasts dozens of food, beverage and retail stores and 29 gates. After weighing my options, I grabbed a coffee and breakfast sandwich at Starbucks. I took advantage of the multiple charging stations and complimentary WiFi before making my way to my gate.
I was in a later boarding group, but was happy to still have room in the overhead bin for my carry-on luggage once on board. Just as I settled into my seat with ample legroom, we pushed back. Shortly after take off, the pleasant flight attendants came through with snacks and amenities including headsets and blankets for purchase. I was not hungry, so I waited for the complimentary drink and light snack service. JetBlue offers a variety of sweet and savory snacks including chips, cookies and pretzels.
JetBlue offers DirecTV to all passengers. On my flight, three movie options were available. I dozed for the beginning part of the flight and began watching Bridge of Spies in progress. I would have preferred to start the film at a time convenient to me.
My four-hour flight went by quickly, thanks in part to the friendly flight attendants and the comfortable atmosphere of JetBlue’s service. Overall, I was pleased with my first JetBlue experience and look forward to flying the airline again soon.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Experience a big-city hotel stay that doesn’t feel like your typical urban visit at Chicago’s Claridge House, nestled in the sought-after Gold Coast neighborhood. The hotel’s sophisticated décor and serene residential ambience foster the atmosphere of an oasis amid the hustle and bustle of a busy metropolis.
Cable is so expensive, sometimes it is easier to just pay monthly for subscription services like Hulu and Netflix. Some TVs come with those applications already installed, but, if not ,you have to use your laptop and a HDMI cord, which takes a while to set up. Instead, get an Amazon Fire TV Stick.
