Spend enough time flying and there’s a decent chance you’ll come up with some favorite experiences. Favorite airline, favorite seat, favorite connecting airport and even potentially a favorite landing. Just this past weekend I was treated to one of my favorites: the Expressway Visual at LaGuardia right at sunset. It was spectacular.
The timing of that just happens to coincide with an annual poll where private jet broker PrivateFly wants to know what your favorite is. And, as much as I love the Expressway Visual, it actually wasn’t on my nominees list for this year’s survey. My two suggestions this time around were for Queenstown, New Zealand and Saba in the Dutch Antilles. I love the Queenstown arrival for the way it is nestled in between the mountains, with the lush landscape below. It is a great combination of exhilarating and beautiful.
Saba’s landing also involves a mountain, mostly for the purpose of navigation. As in fly right towards it. It is a spectacularly short runway with steep drops into the Caribbean at either end. Not quite aircraft carrier short, but exciting nonetheless.
And who knows; the draw of my hometown might end up pulling me in to vote for LaGuardia in the end. But the list, a great mix of remote landscapes and urban options, is a fun read.
What’s your vote?
