Caribbean Island Joy Sale

Tuesday, October 27th, 2009

JetBlue Sale

JetBlue is having a 4-day fare sale to numerous destinations in the Caribbean, including Nassau, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. Tickets must be purchased by midnight on Friday, October 31. Travel dates are October 30 through December 16 for most destinations. Blackout dates are between November 23 and November 30.

Their lowest mentioned sale fare is Ft. Lauderdale to Nassau for $29 each way. We searched for that fare on their site and found it (see below). However, there are $93 in taxes on top of the $58 round-trip tally! Those taxes aren’t JetBlue’s fault, but regardelss, the final price is $151.

$141: LAX to JFK (Round-trip)

Tuesday, October 20th, 2009

JetBlue is offering fares as low as $31 for travel on Halloween (October 31st) after 12 noon.  The horrifying catch is that they must be purchased today by midnight (Mountain Time), so make haste!

The most frighteningly low deal we found was for $41 from Los Angeles (LAX) to New York (JFK). Return flights on latter dates are regularly priced, which could negate some of the savings. See this monstrous deal.

So, what about the return trip?  We found that on Orbitz for $100 with Delta Airlines. Sometimes, to maximize savings, you may need to book on separate airlines. Please read this entry entitle, “Be Unafraid to Book on Separate Airlines.”

$244: JFK to Caribbean Cities

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

Not only is JetBlue digging deeper into the Caribbean by adding more and more destinations, but they have a headlock on low fares to the region, especially for direct flights from New York (JFK). These are ridiculously popular routes given the number of Caribbean expatriates who live in the New York area.

JetBlue currently flies to 13 Caribbean cities…

  1. Cancun, Mexico
  2. San Juan, Puerto Rico
  3. Ponce, Puerto Rico
  4. Aguadilla, Puerto Rico
  5. Nassau, Bahamas
  6. Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic
  7. Santiago, Dominican Republic
  8. Santa Domingo, Dominican Republic
  9. Montego Bay, Jamaica
  10. St. Maarten
  11. Hamilton, Bermuda
  12. Barbados
  13. Aruba

JetBlue will be adding New York to St. Lucia on October 26 and Kingston, Jamaica on October 30. Once the U.S. opens up business with Cuba, look for them to flood that island with flights. They now serve 17 international locations. Will Southwest Airlines ever step to the international plate?

When is JetBlue going to tackle the Virgin Islands, already?

$75 Promotional Code

Thursday, October 8th, 2009

This is good when you book on by October 15, 2009 for travel to commence on November 11 and be completed by February 28, 2010.

Only one promotional code per reservation, so if you have multiple passengers you may want to book individually, so you can maximize savings.

The biggest snippet is that your travel must originate from and return to one of Lufthansa’s 17 U.S. gateways or one of the 12 JetBlue codeshare U.S. gateways.

JetScrewed by your TruePass?

Thursday, July 30th, 2009

I held onto my JetBlue TruePass for 11 months before “inefficiently” using it on a short, 250-mile flight just before it expired. I had hoped to use it on a longer, more exciting segment but was unable. The problem was that most of the flights I wanted to use it on throughout the year didn’t qualify. Well, no more of that!

JetBlue just announced that they are drastically improving their trueBlue Awards Program and doing away with blackouts and expiration dates (as long as you use your JetBlue Card from American Express at least once a year).

Thank the skies! Just as many airlines are tightening their purse strings, JetBlue is getting a little more generous.

See all program improvements.

JetBlue: Rochester Big and Tall of Airlines

Friday, May 25th, 2007

Jet Blue

I’ve finally had a chance to fly on JetBlue, and I definitely noticed and appreciated the extra legroom.

The first 11 rows on their Airbus 320 jets boast at least 36 inches of legroom, while the rear 14 rows have 34 inches. This is up from the standard 32 inches that most coach seats allow. Seating in the 8th row on my flight from Los Angeles to Chicago, those extra 4 inches allowed me to move and stretch my legs in positions I had only dreamed off on my previous Southwest Airlines flight. On Southwest, my knee caps are literally 1/2 inch from touching the seat in front of me. And I’m only 6’2″, I couldn’t imagine being 6’4″ or taller and trying to fly coach.

Hopefully, the competition will catch on and increase their legroom in coach. All it takes is one row of seats to be removed to allow an extra 2 to 4 inches for the remaining rows. It’s amazing the difference an extra couple inches of legroom makes on a cross country flight.

With the knowledge that the big and tall will start gravitating toward JetBlue, please heed these words or warning; if you’re flying solo on JetBlue, make sure to book and reserve your seat well in advance, so you don’t get stuck sitting in a middle seat between two behemoths!
