NEW YORK ( – JetBlue Airways will offer an “all-you-can-jet” pass for $599 in which passengers can book an unlimited amount of flights within a one-month span, the airline said Wednesday.

Pass holders can fly to any of JetBlue’s (JBLU) 56 destinations between Sept. 8 and Oct. 8, with no seat limitations or blackout dates, the company said in a release.

Airline equities analyst Bob McAdoo, of Avondale Partners, said he “has never seen a promotion like this before.”

In fact, Air Canada had a similar promotion in 2007, where it offered an unlimited flight pass starting at $1,657 per month.

Still, with JetBlue flights already slashed as low as $100, customers might have to fly 6 or 7 times in a month before they break even.

“This is a way to get people to pay attention, with publicity that doesn’t cost the company much,” McAdoo said. “They’re doing this at a time when there are probably a lot of seats available anyway.”

Customers must buy the $599 pass by Aug. 21, and they can book flights within three days of the departure date. All travel using the pass must be booked between Aug. 12 and Oct. 5.

Taxes and fees are included for domestic flights, and changes or cancellations made less than three days before departure cost $100.

Note; I recall back in the 80’s US Air offered the 30 day passes.

I wonder if anybody will do a 56 city round robin. I know I would! :laughing:

I also wonder if the said flights would count toward their frequent flier point system?

No, the flights don’t count so no mega-MR :frowning:

Each All-You-Can-Jet Pass is eligible for 35 TrueBlue points. Flights booked on the pass are not available for additional TrueBlue points.

Going even further back, several airlines have had unlimited flights, although not for a full month. Two I can think of are Trans-Texas and Lake Central.

Doubtful. You may be able to get $100 fares BUT you need to book them 2-3 weeks in advance. It appears by getting this “all you can eat” fare you can book 3 days in advance. It’s extremely doubtful that you will get a $100 fare with only 3 days notice.

Delta amongst a few others (Northwest?) did a fantastic month long airpass some years back available to non US nationals - all main line routes and connectors, no pre booking just turn up and go subject load.
Had a great time going around the States on a variety of types - could even plan overnight coast to coast routes to save on accomodation!

Happy days.


Many airlines before deregulation had Visit USA fares available for non-US residents. I don’t recall the details but I do remember they were a good deal.
