All you can jet in 30 days – I'm in

Houston, TX. Wed. 19 Aug., 2009. I took the plunge and I’m now a member of the All you can jet in 30 days club. Yup, this is the JetBlue Airways (B6) offer where you can basically fly their system in 30 days for $599 plus some taxes if you head to international destinations.
The purchase experience was not too bad, I had a wait time less than 5 mins. when I called. My first call failed as I could not hear the agent when she came on the phone, but the second one was fine and in about 10 minutes, I was the proud owner of a confirmation number. It took a little longer as I forgot to join TrueBlue, their frequent flyer program so I had to do that before I bought the pass. It was a simple process and took about a minute to accomplish.
I did the smart thing and used my Citibank MasterCard that gives me miles on American Airlines’ AAdvantage frequent flyer program of course. JetBlue only gives me 35 TrueBlue points and I need 100 for a free ticket. So Goal #1 accomplished which is scoring as many AAdvantage miles for this trip. Any purchases made during the trip will also be on this card to maximize the mileage earnings of course.
The agent was very pleasant and advised me of the following when she was done:
  • JetBlue is ticketless
  • JetBlue offers beverage snack services only
  • One checked bag and one carry on are allowed for free, there is a $30 charge after that per bag.

I was then asked if I wanted to book any trips, so I immediately secured my trips home on four consecutive weekend Sundays starting on Sunday, 13 September 2009. The e-mail confirmations came in rapid succession.

I am still figuring out my itinerary. Using the JetBlue’s schedule application is quite a bear I’m afraid. It needs quite a lot of work. As an example, I choose NYC metro area in the “From” box since they serve four of the five area airports and I got no cities in the “To” drop down. I’ve had to use a schedule tool at http://www.cruisinaltitude.com to help me, which works quite well in filling the gaps.

So off to continue planning my routings now.
