I generally prefer not to fly JetBlue because they don’t belong to any frequent flier alliances and I don’t fly them frequently enough to amass enough TrueBlue points to be useful. Currently I have 1,529 TrueBlue Points. What the heck am I supposed to do with that?
But JetBlue happened to have the exact flight I needed last night, so JetBlue it was.
And that’s how I found myself sitting on the tarmac for an hour due to foggy weather in Washington DC, and then found myself circling above Baltimore for half and hour waiting to see if we could even land at DCA (we could). I had my iPad, but there’s only so many games of Settlers of Catan I can play before I start knocking my head against the seat in front of me. And something tells me, that wouldn’t go over too well with The National Association of Protecting Mankind from Crazy People. So…Thank the Lord for DirectTV on JetBlue airplanes and the start of the fall TV season.
I firmly believe that TV makes most things in life infinitely better, and flight delays are no exception.
