Welcome to the JetBlue TrueBlue Forum FLAME-FREE Q&A Thread!

As seen on many other forums, the Flame-Free Q&A Thread is a friendly place for members to ask anything, even the most basic of questions. No snarky responses here! There are no stupid questions in this thread. This is a centralized place to ask simple questions for which you may not want to start an entire thread. A special effort will be made to avoid using acronyms, jargon, or other language difficult to understand to those who may not fly JetBlue so often. Personally I've found this type of resource to be immensely helpful on other forums, and it's about time that we have one here.

So without further ado... ask away

Nobody here knows the answer to this. Wait for an announcement.

Has the price of Even More Space gotten so expensive across the board?

I flew roundtrip LAX <--> MIA in January and to add EMS it was $81 one way and $78 on the return flight. I'm now booking a similar trip for the first week of December and they now want $160 eastbound and $200 westbound to add EMS. The cost of EMS is now more than my Blue airfare. That's insane. I would look at other airlines but a have money in my travel bank that I have to use or lose so I'm stuck with JetBlue. Hopefully, the price of EMS will come down closer to the travel date, otherwise I'll just settle for a core seat.

I agree it's ridiculous. For my 2 hr flight EMS is $67 one-way.

Yeah, it's a thing now. Jetblue wanted $105 for MCO-SJO (3 hours) a couple weeks ago. That used to be the max for cross country flights

Seat Map - Reliable for empty middles seats?

Hello and thanks in advance for your wisdom

I am flying B6 for the first time in ten+ years on Friday night June 9th (DEN-JFK red eye). The seat map looks pretty favorable for an empty middle, though should that not be relied on with passengers who bought the lowest price tickets? The A320 holds 162 and there are about 50 empty seats five days out?

On our second leg (JFK-SXM), very few More Space Seats sold, and pretty limited for regular seats left. Any tips for getting moved to an exit row/more space seatr or paying less at the gate?

Many thanks

Correct. Don't count on the seat map for an empty middle. People who booked Basic Economy and didn't choose a seat will be assigned those seats.

There's no trick. Pay if you want the exit row seat. If you don't, then American Airlines elites can select them for free at check-in removing that option for you.

This is the availability for B6 98 (DEN-JFK) on 6/9: Y7 E7 K7 H7 Q7 B7 V7 R0 W0 M0 Z0 O0 U0 S0 P0 L7 N0 so it looks fairly busy - would probably not count on an empty middle in regular economy

Thank you very much. Y7 likely equates to a very full flight.

Is there are not enough AA status members to claim the EMS seats, do they assign them to the basic economy folks, sort of the luck of the draw?

Not necessarily - B6 and AA availability only goes up to 7 in each fare class (while UA/DL go up to Y9), so it doesn't mean only 7 seats remaining, but given most of the lower buckets are closed it'll probably be pretty busy

Booked Jetblue flight on another website (through credit card booking portal actually). It seemed to state that carry on is included, but I can't find that statement anymore.
The actual manage booking page on jetblue.com seems mum on that topic, neither yes nor no. Fare is listed as "core/economy", whatever that means.

Where and how can I check whether carry on bags are included?

Fro those familiar with AA, we have multiple different types of flight credits. We have trip credits, flight credits, vouchers, etc.

With B6, what are there? Is TravelBank the same thing as travel credit?

At JetBlue they only have Travel Bank. Any kind of credit or voucher will be in the form of a Travel Bank.
