Well, Hurricane Matthew left Cuba (N/W where we are going) and Fort Lauderdale unscathed! We were delayed from 11 am to 2pm because the airport didn’t open until 11. I wasn’t sure how much time would be needed to check-in with Jet Blue, get our visas and check bags. Good thing I decided to give myself more time (arrived at airport 3.5 hours ahead).
There were two lines for check-in, one for US born and one for other. I was excited to see only a couple of people in line but in fact it took almost an hour to get through! They only had two terminals for checking in visas. UGH! Good thing we have TSA pre-check so after obtaining our visas we sped through security.
Oh and don’t forget to complete the necessary forms for your visa – I did mine but forgot my daughter’s. The reason is that Jet Blue requires you to have a separate email assigned to her frequent flier number and I never use that email. TIP – save time by completing your visa form online!
Once we were past security there was a good place to eat – Food Network Kitchen. I got the black bean and rice burger platter and it was delicious. Getting ready to board now. Bidding you farewell and adios!
