  • Does not include checked luggage
  • Not possible to select a seat in advance (will be possible to select a seat by paying an additional fee. Seat selection will become available 24 hours before the flight)
  • Will earn 1 point per $1 spent, additional 1 point per $1 spent will be offered if booking direct on the JetBlue website

In addition Blue Flex will be replaced by Blue Extra, as part of that change you’ll no longer receive two free checked bags under this fare type.

They only do this because people want to be treated like cattle if it means saving a few shekels. But then are quick to whine about bad service and being nickel and dimed.

Received email regarding my Mosiac status. Fare forfeited if cancelled, changes not permitted, advanced seat selection for a fee, not available to redeem Even More Space seats using TB points. At least alcohol is still Free!

So safe to say having Mosiac status is useless now.

Incorrect, the changes mentioned by Brian are only for the Blue Basic fare.

I’m old enough to remember when flight attendants were called Stewardesses. They wore short skirts, cute little hats, and white gloves when they served you a (bad) steak dinner (in coach). Those were the days:.-) Of course a plane ticket back then cost about a weeks’ salary.
