    Love flying Jetblue. I am the most nervous flyer. We are going to Aruba for Easter with our children. Can't wait to get out of the miserable NY weather, and just lay around the beach for a week.

    Just in case you aren't convinced yet, here's another Tru Blue addict! We absolutely love Jet Blue. I travel a lot for business and use them often for both fun and work. They are so easy to work with and, except for their recent challenges during their reservaition system change, have always been quick and easy. I called them yesterday because I noticed the price for our flight had gone down since we booked them. They credited us the difference, with a smile!, all in about 5 minutes. Easy, comfy, and you have to love the individual tv's. We travel them from Boston to Aruba every year. Hope you try them out. Let us know your thoughts after your experience.

Also, there is one certer aisle, with only two seats on each side, so we never get stuck in that middle seat! Never bothered with a leg-rooom upgrade. So it's been jetBlue to Aruba, Puerto Rico, and twice a year to Bermuda. Cheers to jetBlue! :-)

    Hi windy,
    I read your post and since I have flown with Jet blue before, I asked hubby if he wanted to go with the bigger leg room... so I looked at my seats and checked to see how much it would cost because the website states "as little as $10 more... so I clicked on my name and one way, it gave me a proce of $40 more... is this right??? So am I correct, this would be $40 per person per one way.. seems a liitle high..

    thanks

    Yes $40 per seat per flight. So $80 per ticket round trip.

    Some flights I guess have lower prices.

    And the worst part, if those seats are not booked on the flight when it takes off, you are not allowed to sit in them. They will let them go empty, they will actually make an announcement that you can move seats (if the flight is not booked) but cannot sit in the certain rows.

    On our last flight in January, we paid the $40 each to upgrade to more leg room. When the flight left the gate, there were still a few empty seats in that section. Some people asked the flight attendant if they could move up to the empty seats in that section, and they were told they could but it would cost another $25. The people didn't do it, but I will admit I was a little miffed that we paid $40, but these people were told they could pay $25!

    That explains it... thanks for answering my question... I am not sure I want to spend the $160 for more leg room.. this could go towards fun in the sun....

    IMO it is not worth it! The legroom is pretty good for a normal seat. Unless you have a very tall person then you should be fine with the standard seats. The standard seats have more legroom than most other airlines.

    Yes, it's true the normal coach seats have more leg room than other airlines. But on flights more than 2 hours or so, no matter what airline I'm on, I find I always have to get up to stretch my legs as they stiffen up after a while. So we did treat ourselves to the upgrade and thought it was great. These seats make it easier to stretch without always getting up out of your seat.
