NW Getaways: Fly Much? JetBlue's Unlimited Deal
The Los Angeles Times reports that JetBlue is offering a pretty amazing flight deal: a $599 pass that allows unlimited travel to any of the carrier's 56 national and international locations from Sept. 8 through Oct. 8. Of course, an offer this good has to have a few caveats and accordingly, the newspaper reports there are plenty. For example:
|Downsides: JetBlue wouldn’t say what the supply of passes is. “We are not disclosing a number,” Baldwin said, adding: “It is our goal that everyone who wants to purchase one can get one.” And since the pass is nonrefundable, “make sure you can use it,” Baldwin said. Or you could be out a lot of money.
Contact: JetBlue Airways. You must call (800) 538-2583 and hit Prompt 4 to buy the pass. When I did that this afternoon, the agent who answered said, “They just came out with the instructions, so I haven’t done one. Let me see how it works.” And she did. (No, I didn’t buy a pass. Sorry, JetBlue. Just testing.)
