Who wants more A380 flights? We do. Thanks to Emirates more of the big birds will be on their way shortly over to New York-JFK. Starting on January 1, the carrier will be adding a second daily nonstop option aboard the Airbus A380 between New York-JFK and Dubai. In total this will probably add around 1,000 more seats between the two cities each and every day of the week, so we guess that means there’s quite a demand for these back and forth flights. Of course we probably won’t be the ones utilizing the in-flight showers, but we’ll settle in with some in-flight entertainment in the back along with 399 other economy passengers.
This week JetBlue is pretty darn excited about what they have going on down in Puerto Rico. They just cut the ribbon on their new home at the airport, and now they’ve officially confirmed that San Juan is the sixth focus city in the carrier’s extensive network.
In addition to all the fanfare surrounding the announcement the airline also revealed that they’ll be connecting one more city with San Juan. JetBlue will be the only airline offering up nonstop service between Washington Reagan National Airport and San Juan beginning on August 23.
· Condor Airlines:
If you’re looking for a more affordable option to travel over to Europe, Condor Airlines might be just what you need. They’re now offering up nonstop flights between Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport—BWI to its friends—and Frankfurt, Germany. It’s going to just be a seasonal thing for the summer running twice per week, but we bet that they offer up fares a little bit lower than the major foreign and domestic carriers. The flights will be on the departure board on Mondays and Thursdays, and you’ll be flying with around 270 of your closest friends aboard a Boeing 767-300.
