My Trip To & From JFK

Last week during my Winter Break (my school calls it Ski Week), my family decided to hit up the big apple, and this is the aviation side of it. Also, I apologize for any low-quality photos, these were all taken on my phone as I am scrambling to find a good camera to
use.


The Southwest gates in LAX

Some whales spotted as I’m sitting in the gate (really sorry for quality)

I will be flying on a jetBlue A321 equipped with FlyFi and Mint & Even More Space seats, which my family graciously didn’t do, but rest assured we will buy some of those seats sometime in the future

The view from my seat as I sit down, I actually got to sit in the cockpit in the captain’s seat before and asked the pilots a few questions! But I cannot post those photos due to privacy.

A bit after takeoff, those clouds are fascinating!

I didn’t know this before, but jetBlue actually has a channel you can listen to that has the ATC! Unfortunately, it didn’t work in my flights.

My aircraft in Flightradar24, it was cool to track myself!

As we descend into NYC, I can see Manhattan in all of it’s lit-up glory with Times Square & skyscrapers

Landing! (Sorry for the reflection)

Now for the return flight ;)

The same type of aircraft taking me home, a jetBlue A321

Man, it was raining out there! But I managed to snag this cool photo, even if the rain blocked me from taking more pictures ;(

I didn’t take any pics to or at LAX cause I fell asleep,
I’m sorry! Gotta get the Z’s somehow. But that’s my trip! What do you guys think? I’m really sorry again for the bad quality, I’m desprealy searching for a good camera to use on these trips!

I went to JFK from San Francisco with a JetBlue A320. It was definitely an above-average flight!

Thank you! I’m glad you enjoyed the photos, I just hate how my phone doesn’t do the best at night, sometimes it comes out grainy.

Yes, the lighting was fantastic! I hope to see it again someday.

Most cameras willl show some grain (or “noise”) in nighttime so no matter if you buy a high-end DSLR or use your iPhone you will still get some noise.

That’s cool that you can listen to ATC. Do you know if it’s for the actual flight or just nearby aircraft?

It’s for the actual flight, if you select “Sirius XM” on jetBlue’s home screen then there will be an option in the genres of music for ATC, click on that and you will see (flight number) ATC, and once you press on it you should hear it!

Thanks for the input! I’m beginning photography so I’m still learning the twists and turns ;)

I promise you it’s a hobby you’ll love. Match it with planespotting and you got a really fun thing to do when you have free time ;)
