Jetblue A320/Extra Legroom Seats

Mon Jan 12, 2009 6:11 am

Jetblue is offering customers to Upgrade to seats with Extra Legroom between $10-$30 per flight with a seat pitch of 38 Inches (vs 34) in rows 2-5 on the A320 aircraft.

Has anyone flown/or have any Pictures of these seats with Extra Legroom.

Best Regards,

AMS

They are the same seats as before, just moved to allow for extra legroom. No change in seat width or anything like that. I got to sit in one (not on a flight) when it was in the hangar once we started doing the shifting and was quite impressed on how a few inches make such a difference!

But at the same time I just got off a JetBlue plane and their normal leg room in the back of the plane (on an E190) is more then a typical carrier...so for a short flight, like my IAD-JFK-IAD it was not worth it.,

Especially with a flight about 42% full each-way;.

I'll let you know after Friday. I'm flying B6 for the first time MCO-LGA-MCO for the long weekend and being 6'4, decided the $20 per leg was worth the extra inches of legroom for the 2.5 hour flight.

Just to follow up, the "Extra Legroom" seats on JetBlue are very much worth the extra money, especially if you're traveling by yourself (I could see where multiplying $40 extra times more than one person can get pricey real quick).

Thanks for your update. It looks that these seats with extra legroom should be worth
the upgrade fee of $10-40 per flight.

Were you able to make any photo shots of your seats?

AMS

I can take one tomorrow when I fly back and post it here for you once I get back home tomorrow night. But as someone who is 6'4, they are well worth it.  Smile

Here's the best I could do, since I didn't linger around to take photos of the cabin (we were delayed and I knew the crew was looking to do a quick turn). But this is how much "extra" room I had in the extra legroom section - keep in mind on most aircraft in standard 31"-33" pictch, my knees are jammed up against the seat in front of me. Here I could place one foot on the other knee without any problem.  Smile

The legroom looks great and comfortable!

Definitely worth paying for the extra legroom!

Yeah those extra legroom seats are great. I get more legroom in than I do in the first cabins on DL/NW! On the 320 take row 11. Row 10 does not recline because it is in front of an exit row.

It is only the window seats in row 10 that do not recline. Seat B C - D E do recline. Also all of row 9 (not an Extra leg Room row) does not recline.

I spent the extra $30 for the JFK-BUR part of my trip . Well worth it , for me at least . I'm 5'9",but I like to be able to cross my legs - which I was able to do with ease.
On a side note,I love B6! They are my #1 airline of choice,now. Especially with the new T5.

I would fly them more often if I could fly MCO-RDU nonstop (or even just via IAD) but to fly MCO-JFK/BOS/RDU is just not convenient or practical. I chose to fly them this past weekend because I was flying up to New York (LGA) and wanted to give them a try on a route that makes sense. If they did start MCO-RDU, or RDU-IAD so I could go via Dulles, they'd become my carrier of choice.

No problem. Hope you enjoy B6 as much as I did.
