Was just browsing the Internet as I usually do on various airline's website. Came across Jet Blue and saw a posting dated on 9/24/2010 for In-flight Crew. Just curious as to if anyone on here has information about flying with them. I have been a fan of their product.

Let me tell you... applications will be rolling in. Last time B6 accepted applications was late last year/early this year. I applied in the short window they had open back in October of 2009. Went through the phone interview, and off I went to NYC for the group interviews back in February. We were told right there and then that training won't be for quite a while - and if we got picked and scheduled for training it wouldn't be until Fall 2010 or early 2011. The interview process was GREAT - what an amazing group of people. The next day I was flying home - low and behold I get a voice mail after landing saying I passed the interview. This was all early February... then they told us they'd call us when a class was to be assigned. The call came literally a month ago asking who out of the candidate pool was still interested.

It has been a good six months since we were picked until the call came. I imagine a lot of people slated for training might have found different jobs since then - as have I. While I always thought it would be cool to be an FA, I politely declined B6 to go for training. I assume I'm not the only one that has done so - thus the interview process has opened up once again since that class needs to be repopulated. (I'm sure there will be more classes as well, but I don't think it will be too many more for now as the growth isn't that huge.)

Well, that's my story for now. Good luck to all who apply! B6 is wonderful.

Hey man.

I was in SFO at that time - so I was doing domestic. And no, it was a free-for-all. Everyone scrambled to get their on their own. Ended up being an expensive last minute trip. Everyone took whatever airline they can get. It also happened to be a horrible weekend for weather and many people couldn't get out for the interview. A mess from beginning to end.

I've been flying on B6 quite a bit lately. I usually fly on DL, US, or AA, but I have to say, JetBlue consistently has the best flight attendants I've ever had. I had a good conversation with a really nice one on a flight last night to BOS. It's evident that they love their jobs and the personal pride they seem to exhibit is very inspiring. I have been particularly surprised to see what I'm pretty sure were deadheading crew members helping clean the aircraft after landing. There's something to be said for airline personnel that actually make you look forward to the flight.

Good luck to you.

Any B6'ers happen to know if I were to write a nice letter, would it make it to the person I wrote it about, or would it just end up in some file (or the trash)?



I got my head checked--by a jumbo jet

I would apply with jetBlue, but they don't even serve ABQ.  


The reason New Mexico is so windy is because Texas sucks and Arizona blows.

Hey there,

First, thank you so much! Most of us as a whole (inflight, ground, flight, etc) work extremely hard to make our customers happy; it's always nice to hear their appreciation of our product, and of us.    To answer your question, yes. While we won't know exactly *who* wrote the letter, we will know (positive or negative) if someone has written in to let B6 know of their experience; it doesn't go unnoticed. Personally, I never try to 'solicit' compliment letters, and if someone walks off my plane and says "Thank you for making this flight enjoyable", it makes my day and it's enough. However, actually hearing about it later in the form of a letter is an added plus, because it means that we were memorable enough for someone to take the extra time out to let the company know that we're doing a good job.

TVs, legroom, unlimited snacks, and new planes are great bells & whistles, but what good are they if you don't feel welcome there, right? Cheers!



Fierce, Fabulous, and Flawless ;)

I went ahead and applied to see how it goes. Just curious as to how reserve works with B6, and pay scale.
