-- Low-Fare Carrier tops Readers' Choice Award for Third Consecutive Year --
New York, NY (October 8, 2004) -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) New York’s low-fare airline, took home the Best Domestic Airline award again last night from the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2004 Readers’ Choice Awards. The prestigious travel award was presented by actress Angela Bassett to JetBlue CEO David Neeleman at Jazz at Lincoln Center in Manhattan.

This is the third consecutive year that the low-fare carrier, which is less than five years old, has earned the Best Domestic Airline title. This month, JetBlue also won the Best Domestic Airline award in the Condé Nast Traveler’s 2004 Business Travel Awards.

JetBlue’s CEO David Neeleman said, “Condé Nast Traveler readers are amongst the most discriminating travelers in the world and to be named Best US Airline again is a testament to our 7,000 crewmembers and their dedication to taking care of our customers.”

Tom Wallace, Condé Nast Traveler’s editor-in-chief, said: “The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Poll is the largest and most reliable measurement of consumer opinion about travel properties and services around the world. Winning first place in this poll is inarguably the highest accolade any travel company can receive. That JetBlue has done it in three years in a row, and after less than five years in operation, truly puts the airline in a class by itself.”


This is the third time JetBlue has won this award, and it's the second they have won in the past couple of days. Kudos to JetBlue!

Goes to show you that Conde Nast conducts the bulk of their interviews in New York. Certainly in KC, it's more like "Jet Who".

The fact is they did win why discredit the whole process as to why they won. I believe Midwest won a spot as well, does that mean they interviewed people in MKE?

While I'm sure KC doesn't know of JetBlue, many major cities know them (very well) - NYC, LA, Boston, DC, Miami/Fort Lauderdale...I guess Conde Nast has a large reader group from those cities!

Kansas City, Chicago, Minneapolis, Cleveland, Nashville, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, St Louis, Indianaoplis and a host of other cities don't '"know" JetWho either. And speaking of the Conde Nast article, what is meal time like on them? They were rated pretty high for airlines with food.

Also meal time, since the other full service so called majors give you a small package of pretzels and that is all, being offered a choice of snacks, and be encouraged to take more than one, or have the FA's come through time permiting to offer seconds, yeah that could be the reason for that award.

Wait, you mean THATS why they gave me the biscotti when my family was arguing about it?!?!? I'm not complaining, but if I knew they encouraged it, I would've asked for some munchy mix for the road (can't seem to find it anywhere!)

Please tell us Luv2fly what is this choice of "snacks" you speak of?


Because your description of other carriers munchies is total BS. Just on Delta you can get snack mix, pretzels, or bischoff cookies.

How is this Jetblue "snack" so much better? You mention it in every other post. Tell us?

Well, let's talk about Jet Blue when they can offer the same type of frequency, Business Services, Business and or First Class, and international connections.


When they can fly someone from MBS to NRT then we can talk.
Compare New York Air, the Airline that works for your Business

You're right about meals...but you can buy food on some airlines....some airlines still do have meal service (albeit - it's rare)....jetblue has blue potato chips and somehow that qualifies as "food". Yet they are one of the best for "food". Wait=...I think I've got it...what's your favorite "food" to much down on while plopped down in front of the boob tube? Chips!.
