JetBlue is an American, low-cost carrier that offers more than 600 daily flights to more than 60 cities in the U.S., Central America, the Caribbean, the Bahamas and Bermuda. Founded in 1999 and headquartered in Queens, New York, the airline's primary hub is located at New York-JFK, where JetBlue's T5 terminal offers 55,000 square feet of shopping and a variety of local food options. JetBlue also has focus cities in Boston, Fort Lauderdale, Long Beach, and Orlando. While JetBlue is considered a low-cost carrier, it is known for providing a higher end product with leather seats, personal seatback TVs and generous legroom.
JetBlue offers a single class of service throughout its fleet.
- All aircraft feature leather seats and the most legroom in coach (based on average fleet-wide seat pitch of U.S. airlines).
- Passengers can purchase JetBlue's Even More Space product, featuring seats with an extra 4" of legroom, priority boarding and early access to overhead bins.
- Passengers purchasing JetBlue's Even More Space product also enjoy Even More Speed, which provides access to expedited security screening at select airports.
- Passengers traveling on overnight flights from the West enjoy complimentary Snooze Kits, including eyeshades and earplugs, and Eye-Opener pre-landing beverage service.
Food and Drink
JetBlue offers complimentary brand-name snacks and non-alcoholic beverages onboard. Alcoholic beverages are available for purchase. Several boxed-meal options, called Eat Up boxes, are also offered for sale on select flights.
Seatback televisions are available on all of JetBlue's aircraft. JetBlue's continental U.S. flights provide more than 30 channels of DIRECTV and more than 100 channels of SiriusXM Radio. JetBlue Features, which is a selection of newly released movies, is available for a fee on flights longer than two hours. JetBlue Features is offered on a complimentary basis on routes outside of the continental U.S. when DIRECTV and SiriusXM Radio are not available.
JetBlue is rolling out in-flight broadband service beginning in mid-2012 using satellite technology in partnership with ViaSat.
