I really liked the cool characters that showed occupied seats.confirmed by Jeff Hernandez, on Flickr Finally the moment I had been waiting for!With financing for the trip secured, it was time to do one of my favorite things- book airline reservations!Since the JFK-FLL flight departs before the FLL-JFK flight arrives, I would have to fly Virgin America only once on this trip, and return the same day with another airline.I knew that I had to fly on Virgin America at least once! Being a university student in Boca Raton, that meant flying out of Fort Lauderdale (FLL).Unfortunately, everything was too expensive (upwards of 0 RT).

I wanted to fly the Jet Blue A321 because it would complete my Jet Blue collection, as I'd already flown on their Embraer 190 and A320 previously, and because my roommate always told me nothing but great things about it.
