Song’s new service between JFK and San Juan will feature the wide array of on-board amenities that distinguish its brand from other air service. Song’s in-flight entertainment system is the most innovative of any low-fare service, offering personal seatback video monitors that provide: 24 channels of live, DISH Network television; digitally-streamed MP3 programming that allows customers to create individual play lists of 32 songs at their seat from an inventory of more than 1,600 songs; 10 movies available on-demand, allowing customers to start and stop the film at their leisure; a suite of 11 video games; and a popular interactive trivia game that allows passengers to compete against one another.

Song also offers daily nonstop service between San Juan and Orlando and direct daily service between San Juan and Boston. From New York’s JFK Airport, Song offers nonstop daily service to Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Orlando, West Palm Beach, Tampa, Fort Myers, Fort Lauderdale and Nassau, Bahamas.

Song also offers a comprehensive onboard menu, featuring healthful, organic selections, as well as a few indulgences. Dave Lieberman, star of the new Food Network show Good Deal with Dave Lieberman, and author of Hyperion Books’ YOUNG & HUNGRY: More than 100 Recipes for Cooking Fresh and Affordable Food for Everyone, is Song’s newest executive food consultant. Lieberman has created delicious new selections that will be available on Song’s May through November menus. Last year, Song introduced an In-Flight Fitness program, developed exclusively for the low-fare service by fitness guru David Barton. The 15-minute workout is designed to decrease stress and fatigue and improve strength and flexibility — all while burning calories.

Song also recently announced an exclusive partnership with nightlife entrepreneur Rande Gerber to enhance its in-flight offerings, including a branded signature cocktail service, the latest addition to Song’s wide array of on-board offerings. The newly-branded signature beverage service will feature new cocktails created for Song by Gerber, in addition to Song’s current beverage offerings which include sodas, water, wine, beer, coffee and tea. It will also feature newly-branded glasses, cocktail shakers and accessories, all designed in partnership with Gerber. Song and Gerber will unveil the new signature cocktail service, complete with new branding and design, on all Song flights beginning in late summer.

On May 1, Song debuted new coast-to-coast service between JFK and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Song’s JFK expansion continues on July 4, when it will begin service to San Francisco International Airport (SFO) and Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA). Additionally on July 23, Song begins once weekly service between JFK and Aruba’s Queen Beatrix International Airport (AUA).
