JetBlue: Almost Six Years In Business – Four Years Rated “Best”
in Condé Nast Traveler Business Travel Awards

Plus, “No One Comes Close” to the Low-Fare Airline’s Onboard Amenities

New York, NY (September 29, 2005) -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU), New York’s hometown airline, was rated highest in customer satisfaction of all domestic U.S. airlines in Condé Nast Traveler magazine’s 2005 Business Travel Awards – the fourth time since the low-fare airline began flying in 2000.

JetBlue was also rated highest in the category Value for Cost, “topping all other airlines worldwide,” Conde Nast Traveler magazine said in the October 2005 issue. This is the fourth consecutive award in this category for JetBlue.

In addition, JetBlue’s onboard products and services were rated highest among all airlines worldwide, with a significant gap between first and second place. “…(N)o other domestic airline comes close to competing with JetBlue(‘s)” onboard amenities and technology, the magazine said. In addition to JetBlue’s 36 channels of DIRECTV® programming and a selection of premium movies from FOX InFlight™, the airline will begin offering 100 channels of XM Satellite Radio later this year.

“We are completing our sixth year of operations, and our customers have honored us with the ‘best in class’ award four of those years,” said JetBlue’s CEO David Neeleman. “We look forward to bringing humanity back to air travel in new cities next year with an aircraft every customer, especially the business traveler, will love: the 100-seat EMBRAER 190.”

JetBlue is a low-fare, low-cost passenger airline, which provides high-quality customer service. JetBlue operates a fleet of 81 new Airbus A320 aircraft and plans to add four additional A320s and eight Embraer E190s to its fleet in 2005. Based at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport, JetBlue currently operates 286 flights a day and serves 32 destinations in 13 states, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and The Bahamas. JetBlue plans to start daily nonstop service from Newark, NJ to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando on October 5, 2005, to West Palm Beach, Tampa and Fort Myers on October 19, 2005, and to San Juan, PR on November 17, 2005.

All JetBlue aircraft feature roomy leather seats; all equipped with an in-seat digital entertainment system offering 36 channels of free DIRECTV® programming - no other airline offers more live satellite TV options. On flights longer than two hours, a selection of first-run movies and bonus features from FOX InFlight is also available (see note).

With JetBlue, all seats are assigned, all travel is ticketless, all fares are one-way, and an overnight stay is never required.

I doubt it! Let's hope David and Dave step up to the plate and raise the rates when this airplane proves itself.
