As many of us prepare for holiday season travel, armed with headphones and Xanax, it’s incredible to realize that we can now watch TV on an airplane. On a recent JetBlue flight from JFK to SFO, I realized how modern marvels can be far from marvelous. The airline was broadcasting a show called Why Planes Crash.
Last night, a JetBlue flight destined for Sacramento, California encountered turbulence so bad it sent 24 people to the hospital.
A photographer named Timothy LaBranche recently had the inside of an Embraer 190 to himself, so he did what almost any aviation lover would do. He took a photo of himself sitting in the plane. Then he took 99 more — one in every seat.
It's a dark day for personal space bubbles everywhere: JetBlue is about to cram 15 more seats into its Airbus A320. What's more, after being one of the only remaining major airline holdouts, it's also finally caving in and tacking on baggage fees. Delightful.
This video shows the emergency descent of Jetblue flight 1416, which happened yesterday, September 18. Seeing those oxygen masks going down as the cabin fills up with smoke—after one of the engines stops!—is the beginning of one of my worst nightmares. Yet, all passengers seem completely calm about it.
First Class on domestic flights can be a bit of a joke, offering luxury commensurate with what regular passengers used to get. This Sunday, jetBlue will change the cross country long-haul game with the launch of their new Airbus A321. It's cheaper than most first class trips and, as I found out, nicer in many ways.
JetBlue has a new design scheme for their Airbus A321s, used on transcontinental flights. In addition to the usual 143 economy seats, these planes will have actual "class" seating for the first time with 16 business class seats and four business class "suites." Apparently Jetblue had to file a special request with the…
With clear skies and rising temperatures around the country, the summer travel season is nearly upon us. And unless you've got money to burn or a first-born to offer, now's the time to book your travel plans. Here's how to get away without breaking the bank.
There's nothing quite as magical as surfing the Interwebs from cruising altitude, and now you can add JetBlue to the list of airlines that will let you do it. A few years behind everyone else, mind you. The company's new, punny service "Fly-Fi" will be showing up in planes later this year.
JetBlue Flight 191 had to make an emergency landing today in Amarillo, Texas. The flight was en route to Las Vegas from New York's JFK when a man—allegedly the flight's captain—got out of the restroom "foaming at the mouth" and screaming.
JetBlue has offered unlimited travel deals in the past with their All You Can Jet package, but this time they're giving you even more time to travel. You can fly anywhere, as much as you want for three freaking months!
On Saturday, July 16th, the eternally traffic jammed 405 Freeway in Los Angeles will be shut down. It's CARMAGEDDON! No worries though, JetBlue will fly you around the Los Angeles area for only 4 bucks that day.
You would think that with a responsible organization like the TSA running airport security that nothing that shouldn't get on a plane would be on a plane. HAHA. Yeah right. Those ass-grabbers just let a stun gun on a plane.
The airport is turning on itself! A TSA agent, usually the scourge of news headlines, is actually on the good guy side of this one—exposing a frightening hole in JetBlue's security practices. A giant, dangerous, very cheap hole.
JetBlue, one of the more forward thinking airlines in the industry, has been conspicuously behind some of its competitors when it comes to offering in-flight Internet access. But JetBlue's delay might allow it to offer better service than the competition.
Got some free time next month? Well, JetBlue is offering up a deal where you can fly as many times as you want in 30 days for one reasonable flat rate.
The tale of Steven Slater—the JetBlue flight attendant who became a folk hero by storming off the job on an inflatable slide—keeps getting better. Gay sex, happy bragging, family tragedy, HIV status, and a confused ex-wife ahead. [Updated]
A JetBlue flight attendant argued with a passenger on the tarmac at JFK today. In a fit of rage, he activated the plane's inflatable emergency slide, slid out, and stormed off the job. [Updated with photos and his curse-strewn rant!]
