Sitting around the airport and waiting for your flight to take off just got a lot more interesting.

From April 22 to May 30, JetBlue is teaming up with Nintendo to offer a grandstand complete with new Nintendo 3DS games.

The system, which launched on March 27th, sold nearly 400,000 units its first week.

The program will be at JetBlue's ever-fun Terminal 5 and will include 3D experiences such as flight simulators, submarine navigation games, Madden NFL and Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars. The consoles are also set up with a customized Mii Maker and to take 3D pictures.

Add in daily prize giveaways and some gamers may consider purposely missing their flight to keep playing.
