So on 2020-08-01T16:20:00Z I took a flight from TXKF to KJFK to go to the mainland United States for summer vacation and I though I would make a trip report on the flight so here we go. I was also wearing a mask from getting out of my car at TXKF to getting in the rental car I got at KJFK so I was wearing a mask the whole time, more about the policies for that in TXKF and KJFK plus on JetBlue later on.
Getting in the airport and checking in was strange as in TXKF the took out all of the rope things that keep people in lines and instead they had social distancing dukes on the fork for obvious reasons, other than that it was the same. Also at TXKF was mandatory mask enforcing which means you had to wear your mask properly the whole time you were there, which is good and the reason why Bermuda is almost Covid free.
After check in We had pre clearance for US customs, for those who don’t know what pre clearance is this is basically it: Since Bermuda is a British over seas territory, the short 2 hour flight was considered international which means I would have had to go go through customs at JFK, which would take a long time but since we did customs in Bermuda we avoid the big lines for custom at JFK, which is a win for me
After customs we had security (which is always bad for me since I always get a ssss on my boarding pass which means I get a pat down and tea searches my bag no no photos of security.
After security i was in the pre departure lounge where I got Pringle’s, gum, chips ahoy, and a sprite to sustain me for the flight as I didn’t think they were going to be serving snacks because of covid
After boating I sat down in seat 21F a window seat but I Didn’t get a picture of my seat because I forgot to (this always happens) but I did go on to google images and google the seats
My view out the window was ok but I couldn’t see much of the wing but I was fine with it, I should also mention that JetBlue forbids switching seats with strangers during the COVID-19 crisis so I was stuck with this anyways, you are also forced to wear a mask properly throughout the whole flight as well but you can pull it down for a little bit to drink water and eat snacks.
After filming the takeoff, I began taking pictures of the water because I know people like them, so here are the best
Once we were at 10,000 feet I put down my tray table (which was wiped by the crew and by me with a Clorox while along with the seat) to eat the snack. I bought at TXKF, to my surprise the FAs began to pass out what I’m going to be calling ‘goodie bags’
In those ‘goodie bags’ were: a note from the crew, a small bottle of water, A bag of cookies, a granola bar and 3 napkins
So combined with my snack I bout in TXKF I had quite a-lot of food
After finishing everything I decided to take a nap because I was tired and I had about an hour and 15 minutes left on the flight, but not after taking a picture of me cruising at 40,000 feet
I woke up when we were at 20,000 feet because someone hit the flight attendant button in the seat in front of me.
10 minutes later we hit 10,000 feet above sea level and begun our final decent
Oh look it the United States
Turning onto final for Runway 22L at KJFK
Well I forgot to take a photo of our gate so straight to the experience at KJFK, Masks were enforced throughout the whole of Terminal 5 as well,
Which is good
After a quick bathroom break I went straight to baggage claim to pick up my luggage, it was decently empty as there were only a few flights there but here is a photo.
And that is all the photos I have from this flight. I also Fly from KJFK to TXKF with JetBlue on my return flight on August 19th and if it wasn’t the retrofitted A320 I wasn’t going to make a report on it but then I remembered the arrival procedures for Bermuda’s airport was quite unique and it could be different to because of covid so do you guys want me to make it?
- Yes make the Trip Report
- No don’t make the Trip Report
Alright that’s all for me, next trip report will probably be around New Years if the New Terminal is open at TXKF by then, have a good day!
