Has anyone flown with them yet?

I'm flying the industry darling next week, JFK to SLC: $216 r/t.

Only bad thing is the flight time on my return... a red-eye arriving in NYC at 5:30 am.

All their good deals are red eyes it seems. New planes with good seats only trouble is from Buffalo all flights have to go through JFK, which means longer backtracking flights.

Never flown myself, but know lots of people that use them from Seattle and I hear nothing but good things.

I've flown 'em JFK-SLC R/T.

Cheap, efficient, and the best part? They get me into SLC @ 12:40 am, 40 minutes into the eligibility window of the Park City Quick Start.

Yessss!!!

Scalce, I've flown JFK to SLC and back on Jet Blue twice. Even met the President of the airline on one of the flights. Good, reliable service. Good pricing. Going out was great because I was able to work a full day, get to the airport, and be in bed in Salt Lake City by Midnight mountain time. Coming home had good and bad. The good: a full day of skiing on the last day of a trip. The bad: red-eye flight and straight to work from the airport. I'm thinking about cancelling my trip to Tremblant next Saturday and jumping on JB to SLC myself.

Actually, AirTran was previously Value Jet.

It sucks that Jetblue doesn't fly to SLC from Boston.

I'm toying with the idea of flying them to Denver on April8. I work in the early evening, I don't work Friday, and Monday, I don't start until the evening, so I can "sleep off" the red eye. Its one of the few airlines I can fly without having to take too much time off from work. If I decide to do it, I'll give you a report.

That did play a role in my decision to take JetBlue... and although red-eyes are never anyone's first preference, they allow a full seven hours of skiing and a very leisurely dinner on the return day.

James send me a PM about your plans If I have the time we could meet for a few turns at DV Park city or the Canyons.

JamesD, The last time i flew Jet Blue home from SLC I enjoyed an epic powder day at Solitude, took the bus down the canyon, showered in my friends hotel room before enjoying a relaxed dinner, a few beers... then caught a cab to the airport. My buddy, who was supposed to fly home with me, cancelled his flight and skied fresh powder for 2 more days. My boss would have understood if I had stayed, but my wife would have killed me!

Flew them from JFK to Burlington. No one else seemed to be flying that in a one leg trip, and they were by far the cheapest. On time, and no hassles with luggage. Trouble free.

I always fly jet blue jfk to denver...and back... I love it. Cheap, reliable, no hassle at jfk(they have there own terminal) you can watch what you want on tv. The time of the flights work for me... they are late, but they allow maximum time on skis and get you back to the city bright and early ready for work :

I fly them frequently - never had a bad experience and the red-eye from Denver to Boston is perfect if you have to get to work at a reasonable hour on a Monday morning. The staff is always super friendly, seats are comfy and the price is right.

I couldn't be a bigger fan of JetBlue. It costs more for a day pass at most mountains than my one way flight from JFK to denver. No connections either...gives them one less opportunity to lose my gear!! The curbside drop at JFK makes the whole thing a breeze.

On the other hand if you live in Row Disland 46 miles puts you on the far side of the moon and you have to pack a lunch before you leave.

BTW Jet Blue to SLC and DEN from the Neast is a fabulous deal.

I flew them in 2003/2004 JFK to Burlington and back. I think they have to be the best US domestic I've been on. Which isn't saying much, admittedly, but they were efficient, didn't smash my luggage (hello, United and Delta), didn't come the raw prawn over my very modest luggage (hello Delta), didn't overbook their flights (hello United and Delta) and were clean (hello Continental, United and Delta).

Easy to book direct online as a foreigner, too. Many US domestics won't let you use a foreign credit card, so you have to use Travelocity et al.
And they have net hotspots in their departure lounges. Very civilised. I definitely fly them again.

value jet pilots

With all due respect to the deceased pilots in the Everglades.

That was faulty management practices. Not pilot error.

They didn't pack the boxes of materials that should never been in the cargo.

They're my favorite airline, but I only fly with them to NYC.
  1. Each seat has DirectTV
  2. Flies into Kennedy, which means when I visit NYC I can take the subway in (vs. Laguardia)
  3. Cheap flights
