For the second year in a row, we are traveling to the East Coast for Easter. Last year, we hit both New York City and Washington DC. This year, we are just spending the long weekend in New York City.
Typically, we travel United or Southwest and stay at a Marriott. As we were struggling to plan the trip this year, we ended up booking a jetBlue vacation package that included a nonstop flight from Sacramento to JFK and three nights at the Parker Hotel.
We took off for the airport a little before 8:00 pm. I upgraded us when I checked in in the morning to seats with extra legroom [5A, 5B]. We boarded the flight a little after 9:40 pm. The flight took off on time just after 10:15 pm.
