Passing over Helena - Mark Atwood

Passing over Helena
It's been a while since I've flown Delta Airlines.
But they have the only non-stop from Seattle to New York City.
And whenever it's not insanely more expensive, non-stop wins.
I checked in 24 hours early, but I was still in the last boarding group.
The in-seat entertainment center is cute. I have it set to "My Flight", so it cycles between a map (I just passed over Helena), and a flight stats summary (10688 m altitude, -54C exterior temperature, 893 km/h ground speed, 56 km/h tail wind, 920 km travelled, time to destination 3:30, time of arrival 10:16 EDT).
While the entertainment center is neat, I would rather have in-seat power.
Strike that, actually I wouldn't, because I lent krow my inflight power coupler, and I would be annoyed to have the opportunity to use it, and not have it.
Why can't the airlines get on the ball for in-flight internet. I don't need to stream a movie, just email and IM.
Working on my overdue engagement summaries. Hopefully, will have at least one queued up in the outgoing email before I land.
One fussy baby. She's not screaming, just obviously bord and frustrated. But then, if I was stuck in her situation, with her coke swilling parents, I would be bored and frustrated too.

Current Location: DL162 SEA JFK, Seat 11C. Passing over Montana.

IIRC, JetBlue does Seattle-NYC non-stop, often for very reasonable prices. Unless they've beefed up the route, their departure times are…inconvenient.

Did American and Jet Blue stop flying to JFK?

Well, my corporate intranet travel portal didn't show them to me, but maybe it was just the time contraints I gave it. Plus, the travel app's quality is noticably... lacking.

There are a number of airlines that do New York/Seattle non-stop. Continental has several flights a day through Newark; I favor them. Jet Blue has a couple to JFK. A variety of other airlines also have services. (There are exactly zero to LGA.) The times of each flight on most airlines are more or less exactly the same two flights a day. (I imagine it has to do with the long flight time and sending an airplane back and forth twice during business hours.) The general price, a week or two out should be 400 or so with taxes. Try a simple expedia search next time...if not to get yourself further riled up about the corporate system.
