JetBlue A321 Phase 1 (Los Angeles to Fort Lauderdale)
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to today’s review of jetBlue Airways! Today, I will be flying on the Airbus A321 in Even More Space from Los Angeles, California, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida! How to stack up one flying between the coasts? The hotel room provided an incredible view of the famous “LAX” sign!
As we arrive at the terminal, there was self service kiosks to help make the check in process go smoothly. There was also plenty of JetBlue crew members if you needed help. Soon, JetBlue will compete with American (sort of), delta, United, and Alaska, for having a hub at Los Angeles, when they cut Long Beach in October.
You know the drill, as we board, let me explain the features of this aircraft. This plane is an A321 belonging to JetBlue, with registration N979JT. I is configured with JetBlue Mint, which I have reviewed before, So let’s head to the back of the cabin. It is laid out in a 3-3 configuration, with 33 inches of legroom in economy, but unlimited legroom for me, in row 6, the bulkhead. Today, my seat is 6A, for this redeye across the beautiful land of the USA!
You can tell that my seat is very wide and has an adjustable headrest. The biggest downside of the emergency exit row, is that you have your tray table in one armrest, and you IFE in the other, so it is a little more narrow than other seats. Although, the padding is quite nice.
I recommend not sitting in the E or F seats in row 6, as a flight attendant sits there during taxi, takeoff, and landing.
This aircraft also features the “JetBlue Pantry” which you’ll find one on the A321NEO, and on transcontinental A321s with mint. It is a self serve snack bar, fully stocked, and you can get whatever you want whenever you want throughout the entire flight.
JetBlue is one of the only airlines to offer unlimited free drinks, and snacks. And they aren’t cheap snacks, they are brand-name snacks. I chose some pretzels and cookies.
I said this is my other of you, and I’m gonna say it again, jetBlue offers the best Wi-Fi in the United States. Not because it’s connection is great, it’s the price! It is 100%, completely, totally, unrealistically, futuristically, I’m running out of adjectives, free! Yes, you heard me right! Free! And not just free for one hour, it’s free for the entire flight! And not just free for one hour, it’s free for the entire flight! This is a very good reason for business travelers to choose to travel with jetBlue over other airlines. They can save tons of money by not having to pay for Wi-Fi.
And for jetBlue, free Wi-Fi isn’t enough! They also offer free in-flight entertainment! Every seat on every jetBlue played as personal television screens, and depending on your aircraft, they offer at least 36 channels, and a newer aircraft like this one, you’ll get over 100 channels. On the phase 1 and 2 jetBlue aircraft, You’ll get on-demand streaming, and on the phase 0 aircraft “ A.k.a. the original” You’ll get three movies on a loop on channels 39, 40, and 41.
As we make our distance into the Fort Lauderdale area, I’m gonna say it. I think that jetBlue has the best domestic transcontinental product in all classes. Their crews, their snacks, and their amenities really set them apart. Another great thing about jetBlue, is that their prices are fairly cheap most the time. You can sometimes get a one-way ticket for $100. This is a great deal, considering that sometimes prices on airlines like Frontier and Spirit can exceed that amount. Thanks for reading this review!
