"What if you could fly to Sunday brunch?" Whether or not you've ever asked yourself that question, the TWA Hotel and BLADE have partnered up to give you the answer.

Over the next six weekends, BLADE and the Gerber Group will transport a very select number of lucky customers by helicopter to the TWA Hotel at JFK for Sunday brunch. After spending their afternoon poolside, brunchers will get home in time to catch up on chores before the workweek begins again.

If you successfully snag one of the limited spots available, you'll start your Sunday Funday with a complimentary drink in the BLADE Lounge on West 30th Street, then enjoy the shortest Manhattan commute of your life during a five-minute flight to the retro-inspired hotel. Upon arrival, you'll be escorted to your table at the Pool Bar for lunch — included with your fare — and more drinks.

To secure your slot, mosey on over to the BLADE site and pick the weekend package that works for you. The special brunch package rate is $170 each way, although a round-trip booking is required. The round-trip requirement means you can't take advantage of this promotion to kill time before an evening flight out of JFK — but you could always just book a regular one-way BLADE flight to the hotel for a drink.

What's included?

  • Round-trip flight between BLADE Lounge West and JFK at a lowered rate
  • Up to $50 in meal credit
  • Complimentary pool access
  • Ground transportation between the helipad at JFK and TWA Hotel

Some additional fine print states that, in case of inclement weather, lunch will be held at The Sunken Lounge instead of poolside. You'll meet back at the BLADE desk in the hotel lobby at 3:40 p.m. for your return flight; you can choose to leave at a later time if you purchase a separate return flight for $195. All fliers receive a $50 discount off the usual fare, while a $100 discount applies to BLADE-GX members. If weather isn't flyable, equal-value credits will be applied to your account.

If you've been jonesing to check out the TWA Hotel or saving up to splurge on a BLADE experience, give Sunday bunch a whirl ... literally.
