    AA and Jet Blue

    It seems like American Airlines and Jet Blue are teaming up and will share miles.

    This was part of an email I received today.

    Yes, it’s true; Jet Blue and American Airlines are now a team. Personally, I was disappointed with the news. My experience with American was never good. Once we started flying JetBlue we stuck with them. Haven’t used another airline in over ten years. Hoping into this partnership won’t change JetBlue.

    Jet Blue only flies to Boston and Ft. Lauderdale direct out of PHL. I've never used them, but I know that there are people here who use both airlines.

    I flew Jet Blue for the first time last month out of Newark to Charleston. Although I like the airline, living in northern NJ flying out of Newark, United dominates so we almost always fly United. Jet Blue recently started flying to Aruba out of Newark but still not to a lot of destinations. Their hub is JFK. I read about the American partnership when I was considering opening a Jet Blue credit card which I would have done if I could fly Jet Blue more often. We don’t use American much either. Depends on what airport works for you.

    Guess I am fearful that this type of partnership could mean that future routes could revert back to American. JetBlue currently does the direct flights to Aruba but years ago American had those routes. On the good side the new point program is a plus for those who will benefit from it.

    Alaska Airlines is also a partner. If you've never flown Alaska, it's a good experience and it opens flights to Asia on JetBlue and American on points.

    Alaska Airlines was great the one time we flew on it. I think it said JetBlue in the Americas.

    For the last few years we have flown PHL-FLL-AUA on our way to Aruba on Jet Blue, and our return direct AUA-PHL on American. Seems to have worked out for us for best pricing. We have both AA and JB credit cards, so wondering if they will merge our mileage accounts? Just thinking out loud ;-)

    I’ve been flying on JetBlue from Ft. Lauderdale and it’s great. 2 1/2 hrs and I’m in Aruba. Last year had to fly American from Miami and flights were ok, but I’m not fond of driving to Miami. I live in SW Florida and FLL 1hr 40 minutes, Miami 2 hrs and parking rates in Miami are higher. I just got the JetBlue CC so I could get some extra miles and don’t have to pay for luggage.

    I have around 150K AA miles so I hope I can use those on either Jet Blue or Alaska Airline flights. I haven't flown AA in 10 years.
