Take a Helicopter from New York City to JFK Airport

The cost of traveling to and around New York City is not exactly logical:  a bus to Boston can cost $10, a cab to Newark will cost you about $60, which is the same as a one-way flight to Fort Lauderdale.  So perhaps I shouldn’t find it wildly expensive that a new service is charging $139 each way to take you by helicopter from Wall Street to JFK Airport.  The 8 minute (!) trip will be offered hourly beginning March 13th.

  1. That’s awesome. $140 is not THAT much more expensive than a car service would be (OK, about double), and saves around two hours of sitting in traffic on the Van Wyck. Should be pretty easy to justify for anyone who bills by the hour.
