JetBlue has announced a batch of changes to its TrueBlue mileage program.
Today JetBlue is sharing a bundle of changes to its TrueBlue mileage program.
In addition to a refreshed TrueBlue digital interface, the carrier is making these changes:
Family Pooling will become Points Pooling:
*Now a pool can be made up of 2 to 7 members of all ages. Anyone can be in the pool- not just people in your ‘real’ family.
*Instead of contributing a set percentage, members will now contribute 100% of their points to the pool. Members will be able to redeem or leave the pool with their unused points when they want to.
*The Pool Leader, formerly called the Head of Household (21 years of age or older), will be able to give other members in the pool privileges to redeem points from the entire pooled balance.
JetBlue also said its TrueBlue Badges – which give bonus points for a variety of activities – are “going on vacation” for a bit while that part of the program is revised.
JetBlue raises baggage fees
JetBlue recently made some changes to its list of baggage fees, raising some fees above what other airlines currently charge.
For tickets purchased after August 27, 2018, the fee for checking the first bag goes up to $30 (from $25) and the fee for the checking a second bag goes up to $40 (from $35). The fee for checking a third bag (and any additional bags) will go up to $150 (from the current $100).
Message: Pack light!
See this chart for the other changes to the fees for checked bags on JetBlue.
