I am planning a one week trip in January or in February with my girlfriend. We want to take the Privat Air flight with the BBJ from DUS to EWR, than with JetBlue or an other "non-major" airline to the West Coast (LAX, SNA or LGB).

JetBlue does only offer a first class, but the OAG has it wrong in their publications. They show AirTran aircraft as having three classes (F,C, and Y), they show some UA 737s, A320s, and 757s as having three classes, and they also show some CO 737s and 757s as having three classes. They are just mistakes, but they are pretty big considering that the OAG is supposed to be the all knowing airline information guide.

But it feels like first class
Indeed, according to jp airline-fleets 02/03, Jetblue's A320s have an Y162 seating, quite good for a low-cost airline. I guess the seat pitch is not bad, considering that most German charter airlines have Y174 (FlyFTI had Y180).
You should fly to LGB, and have a tour through the McDon.. eehhh.. Boeing factory, if that is still possible.

The seat pitch isn't bad at all. It is probably 32in, but no less than 31 if it were any less than 32. That is very good for a low cost carrier. Anyways, the seats are very comfortable. The leather seats and the Personal DirectTV system also make it feel like first class.

Okay.. Ill try to clear some smoke.
Without a doubt.. jetBlue is ONE CLASS!!!!
Y162, 32" pitch
Seat width is 18"
jetBlue will most likely NOT honer your certificate, for they are under no such agreement to do so. They are in NO alliance, in any form, and do not plan to do so.
Also, Sabena, you mentioned flying PrivatAir into my hometown airport (Its a love hate bragging kinda thing). While that is great, do realize that jetBlue flies out of New York JFK, not Newark EWR. To get between the two without a car is quite costly..
You would either have to pay a hundred- one hundred and fifty dollars for a taxi, or take the train/shuttle.
For the latter, you would need to take the EWR monorail to Newark Airport Station and board NJ TRANSIT (NOT AMTRAK: $10 more per person!!) fro NY Penn Station. Make sure you get off at New YORK Penn Station, not New JERSEY Penn Station.
Once arrived in Penn Station, find a subway map and figure out which train you need to take to Manhattan. From there, board the jetBlue shuttle bus to JFK T6 ( I believe it is a 5 dollar ride).
Hope that helps... have a great time in the states!
