Is there anyway to check loads when jump seating on Jet Blue? I may be trying to use them and am not familiar with the procedures. Thanks.

Here's what I do when commuting off line and they don't show you the seats... Try book a flight online for 10 people, if that doesn't work, try 8, then 6 etc. It's slow, but it works.

Just call the 800 number. They will tell you exactly how many seats are avail. They won't give you the BS a lot of other places do like "it looks fair or I'd try another day."On top of thet we have 4 jumpseats for you to ride on as well.

Enjoy your ride.

Thanks for the info. Just one more question: Are those four jumpseats available in the cabin (F/A), or up front?

Thanks.

2 in the cockpit, 2 in the cabin. We let other airline pilots ride our cabin jumpseats as well other flight attendants.

Happy landings

Why jump on Jet Blue when you could jump on TED and ride him all night long to San Fransisco?

Oooohhhhhh!!!!! Riding TED all night long.

JetBlue is a class act when it comes to jumpseating. The pilots will "generously" let you ride. But what is even more amazing is that all their ground staff, irregardless of where you are, know fully what to do with jumpseaters. They know CASS inside and out and if you are CASS approved, can do all the logistics within 1 minute. BAM!!!!

Way to go JB!!! Some things may not be perfect there, but you folks really know how to take care of the "other people". You are always welcome with us.

Cow,

Thank you for the kind words...may I make a suggestion...mono y mono? Take note other pilot prodigies...Do not use the word "irregardless" regardless of the intent of your message.

BC, thanks for the kind words, too. I'm still wondering what BJ was meaning by the grammar lesson, myself. Don't worry about it. There's folks out there you can give $100 bucks to and they'll complain that the bills are the wrong denomination.

Well, apparently there is atleast one person who has no clue about jumpseaters. Because I encountered her in Long Beach last fall. What a nightmare.

I suppose bluejuice787 was referring to the old "irregardless" controversy. However, his credibility on the issue was severely undermined by his choice of "mono y mono." Translated from Spanish, he said, "one and one." I suspect he intended to use the phrase "mano a mano," but even that phrase would be unfortunate. I'll explain below.

Mano-a-mano

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


Mano-a-mano is a Spanish construction meaning "hand-to-hand". It was used originally for bullfights where just two matadors confront each other.

Current Spanish usage describes any kind of competition between two people where they both compete, but somehow co-operate in achieving something.

Within the Doce Pares Eskrima fighting system, it is one of the three ranges of engagement, specifically the closest one. Note that this does not indicate solely unarmed combat.

This term has been adopted in English with similar meaning, possibly by Ernest Hemingway. The English adoption can be likened to the word mêlée.

Retrieved from "http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mano-a-mano"

The phrase mano-a-mano (also correctly spelled without the hyphens, mano a mano) literally means "hand to hand" and is translated to mean "face to face." The tone implied is combative or confrontational, and the combat or contest is often held in public. The phrase does NOT mean, "man to man."


Although "mano a mano" (or bluejuice787's mono y mono, for that matter) looks and sound similar to "man-to-man," the meanings and implications are quite different. A man-to-man talk is when men talk honestly about subjects which may be difficult or embarrassing. Man-to-man means "marked by forthrightness or honesty." It is "honest, intimate, and treating somebody as an equal."

Although it is unclear from his choice of words, I suspect that bluejuice787 desired not to be face-to-face confrontational with Brown Cow, but rather to be honest and intimate with him.

:D



Anyway... on to irregardless.



Irregardless probably originated as a blend of irrespective and regardless. It is a nonstandard form of regardless. While it is commonly remarked that "there is no such word," indeed, there is such a word.
Its fairly widespread use in speech called it to the attention of usage commentators as early as 1927. ... It is still used primarily in speech, although it can be found from time to time in edited prose.

It is an adjective meaning "regardless," and it's pronounced like this.
