Jetblue Flights

By virtue of JetBlue, the travels from Washington to Florida and Boston are not going to be as hard as before. From the 1st of November, JetBlue would be starting its service out of Reagan National Airport that would allow passengers to travel to Fort Lauderdale, Orlando and Boston. This service would include 9 flights daily, from which one would go to Fort Lauderdale, one to Orlando and seven to Boston. This is part of JetBlue’s attempt to grow in DCA. This service would also increase the number of daily flights to Boston, to 18.

The starting rate of the flights would be $64 for a one way travel. If the passenger is in a hurry and decides to make last minute reservation then fare for each way would be $244. At the moment there is no extra baggage fee which is unlike Spirit Airline. JetBlue would allow one bag without fee and no extra charge for carry-on bags.

The rules for consumer compensation are becoming more and stricter by the Department of Transportation as there are proposals that would force the various airlines to pay the passengers more in case they are made to change flights or when their bags don’t arrive on time. There would also be an improvement in delivery of flight status information.

According to a Department of Transportation official, JetBlue has been very efficient in reimbursements, and has avoided overselling so that inconvenience to customers could be prevented. The only thing that JetBlue has to consider for the future is that they need to start giving their passengers a 24 hour window to cancel reservations without apparent penalty.
