JetBlue Questions

Mon Dec 02, 2002 5:03 am

Just two short question:

1. Does JetBlue offer a First/Business Class or are their planes equipped with a one class configuration?

2. Is it possible to travel with ID tickets on JetBlue?

Hello,

1) 1 class configuration only.

2) Depends on your airline's agreements with jetBlue.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for your quick reply. I do not think that we have an agreement with JetBlue but I will call at work and ask them tomorrow.

Hi Frederic!

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).

An interesting point, according to the November OAG JetBlue offers BOTH first class and coach.

Thanks for finding this out CMK10! I just looked on the JetBlue Homepage but I could not find anything about a first class, maybe I should call them.

CMK10,

I am 100% certain jetBlue only operates a single class.

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.  Big grin

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.

Flifti had Y180?  Wow! I think they quit operations because all passengers got thrombosis after a flight with them Big grin.

I think that a visit to Disneyland is more important for my girlfriend even when she is a F/A and also interested in planes but I will do my best to persuade her for tour through the Boeing factory.

Isn't it that there are no more tours at that Boeing plant? Besides the 717 they only build military aircraft there and they don't want anybody watching while an F-15 is made combat ready...

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.

JetBlue's seat pitch is probably slightly above average, but is by no means of first class quality. For the value, though, it is a great product!

Hello Folks!

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!
