Boston Logan Airport

Greetings from … Boston Logan Int’l Airport

I don’t get to fly to or from Boston Logan International Airport that often. But I’m always pleased when I do.

If just for the lobsters, which can be purchased as toys or as meals for now or later.

I don’t get to fly Delta Comfort – the airline’s premium economy seats – all that often either, but I’m glad when my Delta status snags me one of those seats.

And on my Delta flight from Boston to Detroit this week, I found this note sticking out of the seat back pocket.

I made note of the cleaning crew’s work – and the airline’s gesture – and kept my note as a souvenir. But my seatmates didn’t. They left them behind – on the floor – for the next crew to cleaning crew to deal with..

 

 

9/11 Memorial at Boston Logan Airport

Boston Logan Airport 9/11 Memorial

If you happen to be at Boston Logan International Airport today – or any day – go visit the 9/11 Memorial  site, which is a 2.5 park with stone walls and trees and large glass sculpture next to the Hilton Boston Logan Airport Hotel.

Inside the sculpture are two glass panels etched with the names of the passengers and crew of American Airlines flight 11 and United Airlines flight 175, which left Boston that day bound for Los Angeles.

The Logan Airport website has a short, moving video of the dedication of the 9/11 Memorial park in 2008.

JetBlue, already the largest airline at Boston Logan International Airport, is ramping up service there a bit more with the announcement of new service to Hartsfield–Jackson Atlanta International Airport beginning on March 30, 2017.

This will be JetBlue’s 63rd nonstop destination from Boston –(the most destinations of any airline at Boston Logan, the carrier notes) – and with it comes an introductory one-way fare of $47 – starting today.

In addition to Boston-Atlanta flights, JetBlue will be adding service between Atlanta and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood, New York JFK, and Orlando.

Wait – there’s more:

In addition to the flights between Boston and Atlanta, JetBlue also today announced some added flights out of Boston, including a fourth daily roundtrip Mint flight between Boston and San Francisco International Airport (SFO), starting July 15, 2017, and year-round service between Boston and Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport (MBJ), which currently operates as seasonal service.

JetBlue is also expanding its seasonal service between Boston and St. Thomas’ Cyril E. King Airport (STT) to year-round service.

Fresh art at Boston Logan Int’l Airport

BOS Art Two

There’s a new aviation-themed piece of public art in the United Airlines Terminal B at Boston Logan International Airport.

Created by Jacob Kulin and called “Flyby,” the sculpture pays homage to flight and themes of movement and is 18 feet tall and 26 feet long. It’s made of anodized aluminum, powder coated steel, stainless steel – materials that mimic the metallic of airplanes.

“The sculpture echoes notions of transition and flow with its streamlined, telescoping forms, producing a sense of speed and takeoff as the piece seamlessly rears up from the floor,” explains Kulin.
