Flying with Gordon Pt. 63

DL 1957 (MBJ-JFK)
3hrs 47mins
Boeing 737-900er
Captain J. Gordon

Today, I flew back to New York’s JFK from Montego Bay, Jamaica!! The flight today went incredibly smooth and I have no complaints. Actually… I was very upset when I ended my flight just to find out that Delta switched the arrival gate from B28 to B33. I was very upset because this is NOT the first time that it’s happened 🤦🏾‍♂️ Anyway, I had a pretty good flight and I wish that I could’ve caught @Jaheim_Georges departing MBJ for ATL on the A321. He left about an hour after I left. Also, it was cool to watch @tristateaviation land at JFK. Nice landing by the way 😉 I would work on not flaring too early since the 757 is a very sensitive plane. Well, i hope you all had a great day of flying and as always, I’ll see you in the skies!!

  1. LiveFlight tracking. The coolest part of the flight was that it was pretty much a direct with the exception of departure and arrival. We stayed on one waypoint for 1,183 nautical miles!! How cool?!

  1. Preparing for departure at MBJ’s gate 13

  1. Rotating off of runway 7. It was a very windy day in Montego Bay; there was a 22kt crosswind

  1. Flying East of Nassau, Bahamas. Views from first class

  1. Fast forward to sunset over the coast of New Jersey. Also views from first class

  1. Finally flying over some land after open ocean for the last 3 hours. Views from main cabin

  1. Final approach onto JFK’s runway 4R

  1. Touchdown!! The landing wasn’t as smooth as normal because I didn’t flare as early as I usually do. It’s something about flying at night that throws me off my game 🤷🏾‍♂️

  1. Shutting down the engines at gate B28 even though the real flight went to B33. That’s the only thing I hate about being earlier than the real flight… I miss out on updates

  1. LiveFlight approach

Like my, Jamaica birthday bash, but going the opposite direction, 🤩

I am always very happy to see some turquoise water and beaches and a nice sunset doesn’t hurt either. Definitely looks like an enjoyable flight with a scenic departure! Thanks for sharing!
