JetBlue Brings Back Carry-On Bags for Blue Basic

JetBlue announced this week a positive change for Blue Basic fares by including a free carry-on bag for customers flying beginning September 6, 2024, regardless of purchase date.

Previously, customers who wished to bring a carry-on bag would need to purchase one of JetBlue’s other fare options or purchase an Even More Space seat.

Carry-on bags were a feature a few years back, so this is good news for customers booking the cheapest JetBlue fares.

Blue Basic passengers will still board last, so they may be required to check carry-on bags at the gate for no additional charge in the event of space constraints.

All bags remain subject to size and weight restrictions and other fees apply for oversized or overweight bags. For more information about bag allowances, please visit
