JetBlue TrueBlue - Exit Row V's Row 2-5
Jul 2, 12, 5:26 pm
I am taking a couple of 5 to 6 hour flights with jet blue and was wondering if the exit row 11 is more comfortable than row 2.
I was also wondering if the armrest lift up in the exit row. There are two of us flying and I have bought three seats for extra comfort. No good sitting where armrests do not lift up.
Looking forward to any advice as I have not flown JetBlue before.
Not sure about JetBlue specifically, but often exit row arm rests don't go up. One thing I would suggest though is to make sure the extra seat is in the name of "crank extra seat" instead of just a name that won't check-in. A

I was thinking that with exit row.
Have booked extra seat with first name extra seat
With my surname as advised by JetBlue.
I wouldn't do the exit row, if it were me.
The arm rest on window side of the window seat in the exit row is built into the exit door. This is not as comfortable as a normal armrest.
Also, I think the seat cushions are either shallower (i.e., less front-to-back distance) or are less padded. In any case, I find them less comfortable.
Finally, I prefer being at the front of the plane, because you can deplane more quickly.
Basically, I see no advantage to being in the exit row over rows 2-5.

Exit row armrests do go up; only row that does not is row 1. Only non reclining seats in exit rows are 10A, 10F (and 9A, 9F non-exit row in front). Seats in 2-5 are identical to 10 and 11. Good advice re: door armrest in 10-11.
