Laid Off? JetBlue Will Refund Your Ticket


So many people could use a helping hand these days, and JetBlue is stepping up to lend one to weary, would-be travelers. If you've flown with the airline with more legroom, then you may recall its tickets are typically not refundable. In a business-minded gesture, JetBlue has announced it will refund the tickets of anyone who made a purchase before losing their job as part of The JetBlue Promise Program.

The airline is hoping that its increased flexibility will encourage people to book tickets during this uncertain economic time. If you lose your job after Feb. 17 and book your flight between Feb. 1 and June 1, you're eligible to receive a full refund for your JetBlue reservation. The request must be submitted at least two weeks before your scheduled departure date. Do you think the policy will work out for JetBlue?
