It has certainly been a while since I have been on and played Infinite Flight, thats is because I have been busy with work, and it has been exhausting to say the least! Anyway, it felt good to be back on the game, and to take to the skies once again.
Yesterday (Tuesday 17th August 2021), I decided to fly JetBlue’s newest and longest route on offer… JetBlue Flight 7 (B67 / JBU7) from John F. Kennedy New York (KJFK) all the way across the pond to London Heathrow (EGLL).
With a Gate to Gate block time of 7h 20m (scheduled), it is certainly something different for the Airbus A321!
In real life, the aircraft in use on this route are brand new Airbus A321neo (LR - Long Range) variants.
In the past, I have visited Heathrow to spot from a place called Myrtle Avenue (to the south of Runway 27L, along the A30, just outside Hatton Cross Underground Station for the Piccadilly line). This is what gave me inspiration for the screenshot depicted below.
This was my arrival into London Heathrow after 6 hours and 42 minutes in the air.

I want to take this opportunity to welcome JetBlue to the other side of the Pond, and to London!
I hope we will continue seeing JetBlue expand further and further in the European market, as travel safely reopens!
I would also like to thank the ATC controllers active at London Heathrow during my presence…
Shoutout to the mods and staff too, along with all other IFATC who keep the skies of Infinite Flight, safe and enjoyable for all!
