First flight on BermudAir out of Westchester County Airport in New York. The online booking of flight was super easy. Think as easy as ordering Sargasso or Pronto.
Some major advantages of flying out of Westchester County Airport (HPN)
We all know how Bermudians hate a long walk to a gate. One slight disadvantage, no Dunkin Donuts at the terminal.
As for the flight itself.
Stepping onto an Aircraft and seeing our Bermuda flag at the door has a level of pride one is hard to describe. It may not officially be our National Airline, however it is as close as we will get. For now.
Apart from the hassle free check in, the low airfare (less than two lobster dinners) the cabin has nice pink lighting, clean, comfortable seats and inflight entertainment for your individual mobile devices
For me there was something else that sealed the deal. Hearing a calm and clear Bermudian accent over the PA system is something in itself. Almost like you hearing your Sunday School teacher. Right there and then it makes you feel as if you back home already
Being able to have a free “Dark and Stormy” with a nicely wrapped Bermuda sugar cookie with sprinkles was definitely a big change from the standard 5 dry pretzels on major airlines. I wonder, if you fly on a Sunday, will you be able to get Codfish and Potatoes?
Most of all, what set it off was the local friendliness and service that took me back to days gone by at Belmont or Sonesta Hotels. Bermudians have to be very proud that our own young persons are part of the flight crew.
In closing, if anyone knows BermudAir Flight Attendant Ms. Isha Ford, please give her a a big hug. She is a true Bermudian Ambassador.
