JetBlue Eliminates Change Fees
After a long time of waiting between this announcement and the announcements from United, American, Delta, Alaska, and Hawaiian, jetBlue Airways has announced that they will be suspending change fees for all tickets except for basic economy fares. This was an announcement that was expected, but they take a little bit longer so I am curious what was going through jetBlue’s mind there.
Also buried in the announcement was the fact that they will be not allowing a carry-on bag for basic economy fares anymore. They must pay for it. This is how united, Delta, and American run their basic economy fares. The most important part is that they will be eliminating change fees which is beneficial to me as I have many flights booked with them and it provides me plenty of flexibility.
