Another red-eye via Jet Blue, and my, how things do and don't change.
What did not change:
-- The full flight. What the hell, people? Leave the red-eye to us cheapskate travelers! Your babies didn't like the full flight any more than I did. We all learned that the hard way.
-- The lack of pillows and blankets. Because why would you want either on an OVERNIGHT FLIGHT?
-- The "hot towel" service and concessions. One moist towelette coming up!
-- The "Bliss Kit." We got an elegantly-sealed foil envelope containing one eyeshade (dark blue, with the sprightly blue "seat dreams" silk-screened across it) and two foam ear plugs. And we got nice, travel-sized tubes of Dove Cream Oil Intensive Body Lotion. I'll take that over the spa kit.
I suspect I'm really cranky because it was not the most restful way to spend the wee small hours, miracles of cross-country aviation notwithstanding. And I do think it's interesting how JetBlue's swapping corporate partners in and out on tie-in products. I dig the airline. I just wish ... not so many other people did too. At least, not at the same time as me.
