JetBlue’s Valentine’s Day treats for fliers


The past few days I’ve been listing the treats airports and airlines have in store for fliers for Valentine’s Day.

Here’s one more:

On Valentine’s Day JetBlue will be adding Snyder’s Sweet & Salty Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels to the complimentary items in the snack baskets offered on board.

On the ground, JetBlue is also partnering with Dunkin’ Donuts to offer free morning heart-shaped donuts in JFK airport and at Boston Logan Airport on February 12, 13 and 14.

Valentine’s Day is coming up and it’s not just airports that will be celebrating – airlines will be too.

Valentine’s Day is one of the holidays Southwest Airlines gives passengers a free alcoholic drink.

And this year on Valentine’s Day United Airlines will be giving passengers some sweet treats.

UA Eli's Cheesecake Tart

Eli’s Belgian chocolate cheesecake tarts will be served on most domestic and international United flights departing the continental U.S. and on flights from Honolulu to the continental U.S. and Guam. Many United Express flights will offer red velvet bite-sized cookies.

And complimentary champagne and chocolate pairings will be served in the United Clubs at the carrier’s Continental U.S. hubs, while prosecco and chocolate pairings at other domestic United Clubs.

I’ll add more Valentine’s Day treats from airports and airlines as I find them.

Valentine’s Day is around the corner and several airports are getting ready to help travelers celebrate with special events, chocolates and flowers.

As they have done many years in the past, Florida’s Jacksonville International Airport will be surprising at least 1000 passengers with red carnations on Valentine’s Day.

Philadelphia International will be doing the same this Friday, February 12, plus offering an origami demonstration and class in making paper hearts from 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM at the B-C Food Court stage.

AUS Valentine

Austin’s Bergstrom International Airport is celebrating Valentine’s Day by giving travelers a chance to take their photo with an iconic Austin mural in baggage claim on February 12, 13 and 14.

They’ve altered a replica of the “I Love You So Much” mural on South Congress to read “AUS Loves You So Much,” and anyone who shares their photos on Twitter (@AUStinAirport; use the hashtag “#LoveAUS”) will get entered in a drawing for a free box of chocolates.

Free small chocolates will also be distributed at the mural, at the Visitors Center in bag claim and on the concourse from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on February 12, 13, and 14- and 34 passengers waiting to depart at their gate will be randomly selected to receive a free box of chocolates.

And as usual – fresh, handmade, chocolate covered strawberries from local favorite Amy’s Ice Creams will be for sale at the airport for $18 per dozen/$10 half dozen on Friday and Sunday from 9 a.m. – 8 p.m. and 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. on Saturday near bag carousel 3 in the lower level baggage claim and at Amy’s concourse location, which is past security checkpoints near Gate 12.
