Has anyone used this airline in the States? I understand they are a budget airline but are they ok to fly with?

    Jetblue is my absolute favorite airline to fly with!

    Thanks everyone, looking at flying from LA to Seattle so this is a big help.

    Hi T_ALF, yeah I knew about that. I had a post asking about Long Beach airport. I think you even wrote on it. I’ll look into Virgin America.

    I’ve been checking US domestic flights lately too, trying to organise a couple for mid-August. To be honest I’ve found AA and Southwest more reasonably-priced for the flights I’ve been looking at.

    Just my experience.

    Yeah, it’s still ages till I fly, i’m just checking my options for flights. The more I know about whats there the better I think.

    Southwest is a great option you might want to look into as well.

    I fly JetBlue whenever I can. They are great, but unfortunately dont fly into all major airports. I love the individual TV screens on the back of the seats. Makes your flight go by fast. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I love Jetblue too and will pay a little bit more to fly with them then a lot of other airlines, especially if it’s a longer flight. They have more leg room too!

    With Southwest just be aware that they don’t do preflight seat assignments. When you do your online check in they put you in groups and board by group so if you’re in a later group you’ll probably end up in a middle seat in the back of the plane. I don’t see how they save money with it, but whatever.

    I’m hoping to fly from lax to mexico, do you think it is worth me booking my flights at home or waiting untill i get to the airport?

    For some reason I think that you need to book flights 2 days in advance in the US.

    But as a general rule I would not recommend waiting until that late as the airlines seem to be booking flights totally full these days.
