We are an independent publisher. Our reporters create honest, accurate, and objective content to help you make decisions. To support our work, we are paid for providing advertising services. Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Next” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. The compensation we receive and other factors, such as your location, may impact what ads and links appear on our site, and how, where, and in what order ads and links appear. While we strive to provide a wide range of offers, our site does not include information about every product or service that may be available to you. We strive to keep our information accurate and up-to-date, but some information may not be current. So, your actual offer terms from an advertiser may be different than the offer terms on this site. And the advertised offers may be subject to additional terms and conditions of the advertiser. All information is presented without any warranty or guarantee to you.

This page may include: credit card ads that we may be paid for (“advertiser listing”); and general information about credit card products (“editorial content”). Many, but not all, of the offers and clickable hyperlinks (such as a “Apply Now” button or “Learn More” button) that appear on this site are from companies that compensate us. When you click on that hyperlink or button, you may be directed to the credit card issuer’s website where you can review the terms and conditions for your selected offer. Each advertiser is responsible for the accuracy and availability of its ad offer details, but we attempt to verify those offer details. We have partnerships with advertisers such as Brex, Capital One, Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo and Discover. We also include editorial content to educate consumers about financial products and services. Some of that content may also contain ads, including links to advertisers’ sites, and we may be paid on those ads or links.

Here are the details.

JetBlue’s Negative Changes

This week, JetBlue made 3 negative changes that could impact your wallet.  Here’s what you can expect:

1.   Shortened Price Adjustment Grace Period

Previously, if the price of your fare decreased within 14 days of purchase, you could get a travel voucher for the price difference.  Now, the grace period for earning the travel voucher has been reduced to only 5 days.  This is still better than most airlines policies, but it’s still a bummer.

2.   Increased Fees for Standby Passengers

The fee for confirming a same-day flight switch has increased from $50 to $75.  But if the plane is full, and you do NOT board the flight, the fee is reimbursed.

3.   No More Free Standby

You used to be able to fly standby at NO extra charge for flights immediately before or after your original flight (as long as it had the same origin and destination).  But now you will be charged the $75 standby fee that use to only apply to other standby scenarios.

Folks love JetBlue for their extra legroom in economy, free Wi-Fi, and live TV.  And there are lots of great ways to make your JetBlue travel even better.  They even have a Best Fare Guarantee.  So hopefully this is the end of the negative changes.

Bottom Line

Via Deals We Like, JetBlue made some negative changes to their program this week.

They reduced the price adjustment grace period from 14 days to 5 days.  And they made changes to their standby policy, including increasing the fee from $50 to $75.

Overall, JetBlue is still a great airline.  Hopefully these changes won’t disturb your travel!
