Minor Annoyance With JetBlue.com

I was booking a flight from BOS down to IAD on JetBlue.com just now (going to visit some family over the break between semesters). While I certainly appreciated the $39 one-way fare, I was mildly annoyed to find that they do not tell you the type of aircraft on which you will be flying. Of course, when you select seats, you can tell from the seat diagram which type you will be on (4 vs. 6 abreast), but why don't they just tell you that at the beginning? Is it because they haven't thought to change that from when they only flew the A320?

I agree. It is greatly annoying when they don't tell you the type of equipment, unless its basicaly a single type airline like Southwest or WestJet. But, on a multi aircraft fleet like that its a nuisance.

It's most likely due to the fact that aside from us aviation nuts, most people don't really care or know the differance between the two.

Furthermore, as someone who just recently completed a cross country trip with B6 (TR coming soon) in which the first segment was BOS-IAD on a 190, and the rest on the 320, except for the number of seats, I felt the performance (from the pax perspective) was equal.

B6 has become my new favorite airline (Yes, I drank the blue Kool Aid, and now I'm hooked for life).

BTW: On departure out of BOS, I couldv'e sworn the 190 was a mini 757 from the take off power (Wee!)

If you really want to know your type, even before booking the reservation, simply look up the proposed jetBlue flight number here: http://flightaware.com

...And see what equipment is regularly used on that route. Ex, jetBlue #1241:

Although jetblue.com does not specify A/C, the flt number will tell you what A/C is operating. 3 digit flights are A320s, 4 digit flights are E190s.

You should send in your complaint! Go to the speak up link on the main page and tell us what's wrong with the webpage. Thousands send in and complained about the removal of the map version of the flight tracker, and guess what's now back!

That's not completely true anymore. All JFK-ORD flights are listed as 3 digits yet 2 of the 5 flights are operated by the E190. All JFK-AUS flights are listed as 4 digits yet 1 of the 3 flights is operated by the A320. 3 of the 10 JFK-BOS flights, which all have 4 digit flight numbers, are operated by the A320.

Most people on a.net hate JetBlue. Get used to it.

Unless it was an equipment sub, we don't operate the 320 on JFK-AUS, they are strictly 190 flights.

Yeah, the E190 is way overpowered, one of the FO's told me that it's like the corvette of the skies.

Also, any B6 flight number starting with 1, and has 4 digits, you can expect it to be a E190 flight.
