A Jetblue Airbus A320-200, registration N784JB performing flight B6-877 from Boston,MA to Las Vegas,NV (USA), departed Boston's runway 15R when the crew reported they had a bird strike, would level off at 3000 feet and return to the airfield, they took the bird at the left side, it may have impacted the engine, they didn't know, they guesstimated it was a flock of sea gulls. Departure assigned runway 04R for the return. The crew worked the related checklists and were setting up for the ILS approach to runway 04R, they requested to enter a hold to complete the checklists. The crew advised they would need 20 minutes to burn off fuel. The aircraft entered a hold for 20 minutes, then advised they needed another 10 minutes. The crew checked the RVRs for runway 04R (6000 feet, 4500 feet, 6000 feet). The ATIS changed with visibility of a quarter mile with mist, clouds 200 feet overcast, RVR still above 6000 feet. About 15 minutes later the crew decided in consultation with company dispatch to divert to New York's JFK Airport,NY (USA) advising they would go a little bit slow. The crew advised everything appeared to be functioning normally, they just were not happy with the weather at Boston, they maintained the emergency status and wanted emergency services follow them to the gate at JFK. The aircraft climbed to 10,000 feet, landed safely on JFK's runway 13L about 3:10 hours after departure from Boston and taxied to the apron.
