JetBlue’s Family Seating Guarantee
JetBlue introduced this week a formal family seating guarantee to ensure that children aged 13 years and younger can sit next to an adult traveling with them on the same reservation.
This initiative improves the travel experience for families, making it a more comfortable and stress-free journey.
“We know traveling with young children can add challenges, and we want to do everything we can to put parents and families at ease by providing a smooth trip each time they choose JetBlue,” JetBlue’s president and chief operating officer Joanna Geraghty said in a statement. “This enhanced family seating policy reflects our commitment to continue to meet the needs of our customers and provide exceptional service.”
JetBlue’s family seating guarantee incorporates a new process that proactively identifies reservations with children and adults traveling together without prior seating assignments. The process will ensure a traveling child is assigned a seat next to at least one accompanying adult when seats are available, for no additional charge.
Customers who choose JetBlue’s Blue Basic fare, the airline’s version of basic economy, are also included in the family seating policy. For bookings made within 24 hours of planned travel, seats may need to be assigned manually by a JetBlue airport crewmember.
The New York based airline still urges customers to continue to proactively select their seats at the time of booking to ensure the smoothest travel experience possible.
