Good news for JetBlue fans . . . the airline finally launched its new website overnight. Here are my thoughts on the good and bad:
- You can finally start the booking process from the home page as well as check in for your flight and check flight status. Previously you had to click through to other pages for all these things.
- When you click for departure and arrival city, it pops up a bubble with all the possible cities sitting there. It’s easy to find the one you want, but if the airline keeps growing, it’s going to get to be too much.
- The travel deals section is now organized very well
- You are forced to use the calendar to enter your departure and return dates instead of being able to input them manually. If you’re booking for a few months from now, it’s an aggravating process.
The appearance of a constipated-looking redhead does absolutely nothing to help me in the booking process. And unfortunately, my eye was immediately drawn to him when I got to the page.
