JetBlue Now Offers a Family Seating Guarantee

Don’t just assume that, if you’re flying with your child, the airline will automatically seat you and your child together on the aircraft. If you don’t specifically choose your seats before you arrive for your flight, you may find you and your child have been separated, as there’s nothing stating an airline must legally seat a child next to their parent or other adult.

 

Thankfully, more airlines are realizing that separating young flyers from their guardians is just a recipe for a mid-flight meltdown, and they’re taking efforts to always seat families together. Following the leads of American Airlines, Frontier Airlines and Alaska Airlines, JetBlue recently announced it would implement a formal family seating guarantee, so that children aged 13 years or younger would be guaranteed a seat next to an adult on the same reservation. The guarantee assures this with no extra work required on the part of the parent, as well as no additional fee.

 

“We know traveling with young children can add challenges, and we want to do everything we can to put parents and families at ease by providing a smooth trip each time they choose JetBlue,” said Joanna Geraghty, president and CCO, JetBlue. “This enhanced family seating policy reflects our commitment to continue to meet the needs of our customers and provide exceptional service.”
