    JetBlue Rewards and Air Cost is almost free.

    Hello everyone. Anyone had any experience travelling with JetBlue with the TrueRewards points?

    I accumulated enough points for me and my wife and booked flights for two for mid July.

    Total $$$ paid for air for 2 $104....taxes and surcharges.

    Now, just have to wait until July...

    Will be travelling with my newborn son, he'll be 11 months then, so I am really looking forward to this trip.

    In case you are interested, the points are accrued with American Express card. I think you need to apply via JetBlue site.
    Life is funny in NYC, especially on Broad Street. Aruba is my cure!.

    I can tell you that the airline is great. As far as rewards never used them.

    Wife and I are flying Jetblue rewards nonstop RT Boston to Aruba next week.
    I think it cost us $5.00 out and $95 back (taxes) total. Not to bad. The key is to get a Jet Blue AMEX card so your points never expire. NOTE: your points never expire but your awards (free flights) do. Everytime you get 100 points it automatically becomes one award (one way flight). That award will expire in one year from date of issue. Something they don't really explain when aquiring the card. No big deal if you know it when the awards are issued. We did not and almost lost the awards. If you travel with spouse they insist you get her a separate amex card so her points do not expire. ($40.00 per year and you must spend $200.00 on each card per year to save points). I don't understand why I have to have two cards but that is what they said. Anyone have a different understanding I would like to know.
    Thanks

    do not fly jetblue d/t where I live...fly with usair and because I travel for work am able to accumulate enough miles to usually get at least one of us a free flight per year...maybe will try jetblue to see what I can get...although I prefer not to have to get a amex card...had 2 and cancelled them.... am trying to decrease # of cards I have so I don't use them and then have to pay interest.....

    flying jb is great! the seats are much wider than the industry's norm. also, b/c it only serves aruba from select hubs in the USA (jfk, logan, miami?) they have limited flights in and out of AUA which allows them to have no lines at AUA.

    The seat width on the 320 or 190 is no different than other airlines that fly them. They do have a bit more pitch (front of seat to front of next seat) than other airlines at the front of their A320s thanks to the lack of first class seating.

    well that's what i meant....the legroom. also, pay up 30/way and you get 4 inches more. that may seem nominal, but it does wonders for your comfort on a 5 hr trip from the northeast.

    i love jet blue but am still married to american.
    we have miles to use and will undboubtely use them and maybe start fresh on jet blue
    (used jet blue on wednesday to orlando from portland maine)
    i enjoy the legroom and the tvs, but something about those seats cause my lower back to go into spasms.
    nothing an ice pack won't cure but i do not know why it is only on those jet blue embrarer jets to go into spasm.

    we always use aa for overseaas and always jet blue for domestic

    Oh god I love JB, Your right FattyPatty, on any flight I love the extra leg room as I tend to get very crampy especially on other flights. TV's at least make the time fly by. I have gotten 1 free flight so far & yes I do have the AMEX card so the points don't expire. I have 3 flights coming up on JB, 1 to aruba, 1 to Fort Lauderdale and 1 to chicago. so hopefully will be racking up those points. Also on my Aruba flight the only seats left (we leave in 21 days) were either the extra 30.00 seats or the back of the plane, so I paid the 30 can't wait to check them out.
