You can look into JSX semi-private flights from HPN to MIA.

Friends, any general advice on NYC-Miami (early March) with the best practices for avoiding people in the airport/on the plane?

(Social distance for Covid reasons)

So far I have for airport: tsa precheck

And Thinking for-

Flight: First class ticket & travel Tues/Wed wld thin the crowds

Is there a specific time of day to fly where things will be emptier?

Any other creative tips? Am I on the right track?

Thanks

PS. Was looking at AA flights; now I'm not so sure after seeing Dan's post lol

go in a huge plastic bubble. you'll also be protected and also everyone will stay away from you. ;)

Spirit. Buy two 'Big Front' seats.
Good luck

Not nice. Let him be careful if that is what he wants. Let him make his own decisions.

Reason for essential travel to Florida?? If you still need the social distance then kindly stay home

Are you hinting in an obtuse manner that its simply not possible to make travel choices that will dodge the crowds or you just found an easy opportunity to be obnoxious?

Asking a stranger on the internet for their personal reasons for travel or telling them what to do is off base.

There are many hacks for avoiding crowds during travel- my question is limited to anyone with constructive ideas along those lines.

AC is definitely superior unless you want to spend a day (exhausted) in Lisbon. It's a second tier European capital

Which flight?

EWR-IST-TLV J
TLV-IST-EWR Economy
~6 hour stopover each way
Total: 79K TK + $380

OR

EWR-TLV UA E+
TLV-BRU-EWR UA Premium Plus
80 minute stopover in BRU
Total: $1098
(Using MR with a BP for 1.54 + earning ~8K UA for return flight and unsure where to credit the outbound flight to get more than the 1K UA is offering)

Quotes in a signature is annoying, as it comes across as an independent post.

there is also availability now on TK
would need two separate tickets though for tlv-ist and then ist-jfk
is the 777 a good option for comfort and privacy on the long haul flight? 2-3-2? for 45k and $200 from IST, not the worst idea

I get that part. But by the time you board in FRA you'd almost be in EWR if you'd fly United.

Unless the 747 is a bucket list item, UA is the no-brainer.
