Traveling as a family has gotten a whole lot better on JetBlue as they’ve added a new family seating guarantee.
The family seating guarantee ensures that children 13 years and younger will automatically be placed next to an adult traveling on the same reservation as them without having to pay extra.
The process, which is part of JetBlue’s ongoing commitment to enhance the travel experience and promote a comfortable and stress-free journey, proactively identifies reservations with children and adults traveling together without prior seating assignments. It then ensures a traveling child is assigned a seat next to at least one accompanying adult when seats are available.
That means no more having to play musical chairs next time you get on a flight and realize your child is sitting nowhere near you!
Joanna Geraghty, president and chief operating officer at JetBlue, stated:
We know traveling with young children can add challenges, and we want to do everything we can to put parents and families at ease by providing a smooth trip each time they choose JetBlue. This enhanced family seating policy reflects our commitment to continue to meet the needs of our customers and provide exceptional service.
Customers who fly via JetBlue’s Blue Basic fare (JetBlue’s version of basic economy) are included in the family seating policy, though customers are always urged to select their seats at the time of booking to ensure a smooth travel experience.
Those who book their flight within 24 hours of planned travel will have their seats assigned manually by a JetBlue crewmember.
