Jet Blue, fly on down!

Logojetblue An island couple is doing their part to encourage Jet Blue to begin service to the islands.  The low-cost/high-service airline announced plans last year to acquire more planes and increase service to the Caribbean, but didn’t get specific.  Now, Mark and Nanci Shekleton are suggesting an e-mail campaign to persuade the airline to put St. Thomas on its route map.  "We’ve blitzed them with e-mails the past week. although it’s a long shot," conceded Nanci who, with her husband, own Sea View Vacation Homes, a villa management agency.  Contact the airline at http://www.jetblue.com/speakup/questions.asp.

  1. Ditto Franks comments. Also, checked Blues price from NY to SJU. UNDER $100 !! If Jet Blue offers fares for under $200 to STT, I can come down four more times a year. Seems to me that less expensive flights in, would be quite a boost to the economy. I also suggested that they try for an early arrival time on STT to help eliminate the rush between noon and 3pm.

  2. That’s a great Idea. One direct flight a day from NY is no where near enough. I love Jet blue and will let them know I’d use the flight. Also giving American a little competition would not hurt the fare.

  3. I doubt they would be willing to
    fly out of Charlotte, NC…but
    it sure would give us another
    choice than USAir. And with the
    lower fares they could offer…it
    would be BYE-BYE to USAir for us!

  4. Quiero darles las gracia a JETBLUE y sus empleados por su ayuda y cooperacion para con mi esposa que necesitaba ayuda con silla de rueda y se nos trato con mucha cortesia y respeto lo mismo en SAN JUAN como en la ciudad de ORLANDO FLA.
