Does Jetblue still have the "BYOB"?

I'd read an article (I think dated in 2016 or 2017) that JetBlue had an "unofficial" BYOB or something?
Technically I think the FAA rules state that while you can bring certain portions of alcohol on board, only the FA can serve them.
And JetBlue appeared to be one of those airlines that you could do this on (like those little mini bottles of alcohol)?

Is this true?
And if so, is is still valid? (even if a YMMV)

It is to be purchased in the secure area of the terminal. If that is enforced or how they'll determine such is another question.

I assume the TSA is going to handle the enforcement of that.

The standard mini liquor bottles are only 50mls so getting a few through TSA in your ziplock bag of liquids isn't too difficult. I've brought a few.

I don't think that they can enforce the place of purchase. Rather, it is simply a way of warning people boarding at a US airport that they have 3-1-1 limits to observe.
