JetBlue doesn’t just serve customers, they treat them as their family. If you knew about the mass shooting of Orlando or the Orlando Massacre, then you should know it’s not easy for the victims to accept the fate of their loved ones who died there. But, one news article touched our hearts when the grandmother of a victim killed in the massacre flew with JetBlue to her grandson’s funeral at central Florida. What actually was touching here was the flight attendants attending the passenger with utmost comfort.
The story went viral when one of the flight attendants on board shared a post on Facebook revealing the touching compassion of passengers after they learned the older woman had lost her grandson.
In an effort to make sure the woman was comfortable, the flight attendants offered her pillows, blankets, and tissues for the duration of the flight. But, the crew didn’t stop there.

History and Facts
Former Southwest Airlines employees led by David Neeleman established an airline called “New Air” in 1999. It started by following Southwest’s approach of offering low-cost travel, but sought to distinguish itself by its amenities, such as: in-flight entertainment, TV at every seat, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The newly-established airline received its formal US authorization in just a year.
The founders had actually thought of rebranding the airline with “Taxi” and using yellow as livery to associate the airline with New York, but the idea was dropped. To know the whole story how the airline was named “JetBlue,” click here.

Official Website and Mobile App
Their official website looks like a social media site where users can log in to their account. It looks like a Twitter or Facebook with orange colors. But, that’s not degrading them. We are actually amazed with how their web page works. It is easy to navigate around the site. JetBlue’s page gives out a lot of information regarding their services, news, and policies. Customers also have the option to access their account with TrueBlue online aside from the typical searching and managing of booking online.
JetBlue has a mobile version of all the services that can be done on its PC version. Customers who are Android or iOS users can download the travel app on their App Store or Google Play Store. To be more specific, the mobile app lets customers book a flight, get flight status information, review inflight entertainment options, and more. Travellers can also access their mobile boarding pass using the app.
JetBlue Reviews of Travellers
JetBlue had been getting a lot of positive feedback from its customers. According to Skytrax, based on 317 JetBlue reviews, the airline provides warm and efficient service. However, some reviews are showing mixed emotions towards their flight experience with JetBlue. Some JetBlue reviews state that their representatives do not do their job very well and are sometimes rude to customers. On the other hand, there are passengers claiming that Jetblue provides great ground and inflight service; they also say that all of the attendants are very kind and helpful. So, it’s always in between. But, at least they got a 6 out 10 star rating.
