TRIP ITINERARY          REGISTRATION FORM

Thursday April 23 – New York arrival.

3:47 PM: Guests arriving on Jet Blue Flight Flight #1382, which departs IAH 11:11 AM will be met by Joe and Alejandro at the airport and transferred by private, luxury coach to the hotel – with expert New York commentary en route.

A note from Joe and Alejandro: The United Flight which Maureen usually suggests as the group flight has increased greatly in price. It has become much more complicated for Maureen to make the arrangements she has in the past.

We suggested that she transfer the group flight to Jet Blue, which we swear by — in large part because of the nice planes, free Wi-Fi and entertainment, reasonable fares in $ (which are $169 to New York and $139 to Houston — less than ½ those of the United flights) and their reasonable fares in frequent flier miles (less than 11,000 miles from Houston to New York and less than 9,000 miles from New York to Houston) (You can convert American Express Rewards into Jet Blue Frequent flier miles).

If you arrive in New York on another flight, please transfer to the hotel on your own. (add’l cost).

Before leaving the airport, we will explore the interior of Eero Saarinen’s beautifully restored 1962 architectural masterpiece, the former TWA Airline Terminal – now converted into a hotel attached to Jet Blue’s Terminal #5.
