JetBlue is one of those airlines that only extends their flight schedule every few months in batch, instead of 330 days in advance like some of the other airlines. Historically, flights have always been extended on a Sunday and the Friday beforehand they open up the booking window to those interested in a JetBlue Vacation. However, this go-around, there was no indication that flights were to be extended today, but they were. This means, you can no go ahead and book flights through April 27, 2021.
Previously, you could only book flights through Feb. 10, 2021, so you can now book flights for the rest of the winter and into the spring, including popular times such as Presidents Day Weekend and all spring-bring time periods.
For peak travel dates, many times the day the schedule is announced results in the least expensive fare prices.
Although due to the COVID-19 pandemic, you can book now and always cancel later without any change fees and you’ll receive a Travel Fund voucher for the amount paid (as long as your flight is booked by July 31). This is the same policy that was always in existent for those with JetBlue Mosaic members, but now even includes those lowest-level fare tickets.
You also have 24 hours to cancel a flight for a full refund, so you can always “book now and figure it out later”. If your plans are flexible, use the JetBlue Fare Finder which will give you the cheapest price for every day of the month.
With the current pandemic in place, I am booking a few speculative bookings, but I have zero intentions of flying for a very long time. My family has decided to stay put for the forceable future as we do not believe flying for a vacation is safe right now. We are also in Boston where numbers are looking relatively good and people are taking safe measures. But maybe things will start to look brighter next year.
Will you be booking flights or are you staying put for now?
