I missed you by a few days - flew down to FLL on 9/27. Looks like the Blue Belle made a few trips to FLL last week!

Flew "Song Sung Blue" yesterday from SEA-JFK. I tried buying a movie twice but it froze at the same spot both times.....On the advice of Henry and the rest of the crew, I "spoke up" and recieved a $10 check from jetblue to cover the 2 movie swipes (Check is in the mail).

Otherwise a nice pleasant flight across our lovely country.

flew N591JB, Tale of Blue Cities, JFK-FLL today. No XM. 30-minute departure delay due to low pressure rear lavs. One up front worked fine. The captain announced "liquids in the back, everything else up front please!" We arrived in FLL right on time, thanks to the extra padding.

I'm glad the flight went well other than the movie issue. In case some on gets the same seat as you before "the problem" get fixed, what seat were you in on "Song Sung Blue" ?

I've had that problem onboard on a particular aircraft. The movies froze halfway though and then restarted. I don't remember which aircraft it was though. The new policy is if you have onboard TV difficulties (DirecTv not working or what not) and you go to the speak up section the company will send you a travel voucher.

Also, I've been getting this more and more and have been telling people that are onboard my longer flights (flights with movies) to make sure they get the screen that says "Press channel up button to accept charge" after you swipe your CC card. If you don't get that screen your card hasn't been charged and you won't be able to watch the movie beyond the initial 30 minutes. After that 30 minute preview the systems locks out the movies and there is nothing I can do to bring them back. Since I fly the 190 a majority of the time I usually don't run into these problems but just an FYI for all of your Bluers out there.

Interesting chain of events on Absolute Blue...

Flew on Absolute Blue, JFK-PBI yesterday. 10am departure, pushed back at 10:05am...perfectly fine. Taxi out a few feet and stop. Right away, I knew it was ATC, and the rainy weather was not helping either. Looking out the left window, I still saw jetBlue's T5/6. I was watching TV for about 15-20 minutes while we were stopped, when I heard a flight attendant call button ding. Then, again and again...about 5 quick dings in a row. By the third I thought it was a kid playing around. A second later, a series of about 20 dings really fast, when halfway through I rip my headphones off (because it was very loud!) and looked up to see the FA running through the aisle. 2 rows behind me, in row 13 was an older man who passed out. Everyone was turning around and looking with such scared faces. His wife, as expected, was freaking out. One FA went to the back to get a medical emergency kit and made an announcement asking if a Dr. is on board. A gentleman a few rows up stood up and proceeded to walk over. At this point, I learned something I would not have thought of myself - always ask for ID first, to make sure it's really a Dr. and not some nut! The Dr. could not find a pulse. Thankfully, after about 5 minutes the older man slowly woke up. By this time, the captain was notified and we had just begun to taxi back to the gate. The wife said, "No! Let's go to Florida, he will be ok!" Of course, the FA said "Not happening!" He was able to walk off, slowly, and we saw an ambulence pull next to the aircraft a few minutes later.

I've experienced a medical emergency on board (in flight) once before this, and no diversion was needed, about 70 miles from JFK. This was a scary experience, with everyone fearing the worst. Thankfully, he was ok to walk off, but I don't know his status past that. The crew did a great job in being professional and keeping others calm. Although, after some refueling and a 40-minute gate delay, we pushed back to find ourselves with 21 airplanes in front for departure. That's when the whole plane started getting up to use the lavs and of course the FA could not keep the pax seated, and we had to park for a few additional minutes because of those idiots!

2.5 hour flight to PBI, spent 5 total hours on Absolute Blue...Other than that, great, smooth flight.
