Major delays in 2015 at JFK
Gothamist is reporting long delays for JFK flights due to construction and upgrades. The disruption is supposed to last through the end of 2015. Put that "Search nearby airports" button on Kayak to work!
Sadly this was the year that we decided to switch to JetBlue for all of our transcon flights. JetBlue's official statement is here. I've often thought that the coast-to-coast redeye is actually too short of a flight when you have a comfortable bed like JetBlue Mint Class has... If only they could hurry up and get FAA approval for these new seats that allow you to recline during takeoff, I wouldn't mind an extra two hours in my seat :)
