What’s Good about the JetBlue Red Eye?

Taking the JetBlue Red Eye.  Leave at Midnight.  Arrive JFK at 6:00 AM.

One Plane.  No Changes.

All Good.

Except.

You’re in New York at 6AM with Check-In Not Until 3PM.

What to Do with 9 Hours and a Very Tired Family of 4?

  1. Aw, those cats are so cute. Red eye flights can be tough, especially when everyone is exhausted after landing. It looks like you choose great activities to pass the time until check-in at 3:00pm.
