I’ve taken a handful of JetBlue flights recently and in each and every case, despite having my Singapore Airlines Krisflyer membership number entered in my reservation, I haven’t automatically received credit for the flight. After the first couple flights didn’t credit automatically, I suspected that something was amiss, but was still hopeful and chalked it up to bad luck. But after it happened several more times, I was almost certain that there just wasn’t an automatic process in place, and my suspicions were confirmed by others who were facing the same issue.
I had already burned enough miles on my flights from San Francisco to New York, so I wasn’t looking to do anything crazy for the return home. As I shopped around for tickets back to San Francisco, since I was booking just a week prior to departure, ticket prices across the board were really high. However, I noticed that JetBlue’s Mint Class was priced at $549, and with the relatively small difference between that and the price of an economy ticket, I decided to give Mint it a shot.
While I don’t have any personal experience, I hear that traveling with young children can be difficult, and at a minimum, requires a great deal of advance planning. But no matter how much planning you do, there’s not much you can do when babies cry. In advance of Mother’s Day, JetBlue released a cute video highlighting a promotion that ran on a recent flight from New York to Long Beach. During the flight, for each baby that cried, passengers received a 25% discount on an upcoming flight. In other words, four babies crying equals free flights for all.
