Last year, JetBlue made some serious waves when they offered an “All You Can Jet” plan where you can fly anywhere JetBlue flies for free once you purchased their plan. It ran an entire month and they were completely sold out, though I’m not sure how many packages they sold. This year, they’re bringing it back.
You can purchase the AYCJ-7 package, which lets you fly as often as you’d like, seven days a week, for $699. The AYCJ-5 package is like the AYCJ-7 except you can only fly during the week (hence 5). You’ll have to join their membership program, TrueBlue, and you’ll earn 4,500 points for buying the AYCJ-7 (3,000 points for the AYCJ-5). This year the dates for the promotion for travel Tuesday, September 7, 2010 through Wednesday, October 6, 2010 and passes will be sold until they run out or August 20th.
There are a few caveats in the fine print, but nothing that kills the deal:
- Must be booked and ticketed at least 3 days prior to departure.
- Changes or cancellations will incur a $50 fee, no shows will incur a $100 fee.
- “Travel is subject to availability and seats may not be available on all flights.”
- “Passenger Facility Charges up to $9.00 each way; September 11th Security Fees up to $2.50 per enplanement at a U.S. originating airport; Federal Segment Taxes of $3.70 per domestic segment are included in cost of your Pass.”
I knew someone who did this last year and I saw him everywhere.
