JetBlue’s Travel Tips: “In the Know”

     phone or PDA while on the road for real-time flight status.
     Weather alerts will be available, too.

  *  Remember that all liquids and gels (including snow globes
     and other gifts) in your carry-on must comply with the
     Transportation Security Administration’s 3-1-1 guidelines:
     containers must be THREE ounces or less, must all fit in
     ONE quart-sized clear plastic zip-top bag, and with only
     ONE bag permitted per customer. Placing all liquids in your
     checked luggage will make for a quicker security screening
     process.  More information is available at

  *  If traveling with holiday gifts, wait to wrap them until
     you reach your final destination. If further screening
     is necessary, the contents can be easily identified by
     security personnel.

  *  Stay in touch with family and friends during your travel
     by accessing free Wi-Fi at JFK’s Terminal 6 and at Long
     Beach Airport. Other airports served by JetBlue, including
     Boston’s Logan International Airport, Washington Dulles
     International Airport and Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood
     International Airport, offer wireless access as well.
JetBlue’s Travel Tips: “Enjoy the Ride”
  *  Manage your flights 24/7 using online tools available at
     These tools include viewing an itinerary, changing or
     canceling a flight, retrieving a boarding pass and
     assigning seats – everything to make sure you’re ready for
     a great JetBlue Experience.

  *  Check in for your flight at up to 24 hours
     in advance – even if you’re checking bags. Then proceed
     directly to a JetBlue bag drop counter once at the airport.

  *  For check in at the airport, use a kiosk. You can easily
     retrieve your itinerary and print your boarding pass by
     typing in your confirmation number, entering your specific
     travel details, inserting a major credit card, or scanning
     the barcode on your printed e-tinerary. If you’re checking
     bags, indicate the appropriate number and proceed to a bag
     drop counter.

  *  Bring your own headphones for an even better sounding
     onboard entertainment experience.  JetBlue offers universal
     headphone jacks at every seat, and customers enjoy the most
     free live entertainment in the sky: 36 channels of DIRECTV(r)
     programming and more than 100 channels of XM Satellite
     Radio(r)(a).  Don’t worry – if you forget your headphones,
     we’ll give you a free pair, or you can opt to upgrade to
     a $1 headset.

  *  Bring your appetite!  JetBlue offers unlimited complimentary
     snacks on every flight, including Terra Blues(r) Chips,
     Doritos(r) Munchies Mix, Chocobillys(tm) chocolate chunk
     cookies, All Nuts(tm) Jumbo Cashew Halves, Mamma Says(r)
     Pistachio Biscotti, Mrs. GoodCookie(r) Jungle Crackers.
     If you want a full meal, JetBlue’s airports offer a great
     variety of meals you can bring onboard.

  *  Wait to place your coats and jackets in overhead bins
     until all carry-on items have first been stowed. That way
     there will be room for everyone’s items and your coat will
     be on top.
