JetBlue Airways Awarded Tenth Consecutive Customer Satisfaction Honor by J.D. Power

New York's Hometown Airline(TM), Known for Value-Added Amenities Like Free TVs, Comfy Leather Seats With Lots of Legroom and a Free First-checked Bag, Receives Highest Score by Traveling Public

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 14, 2014) - New York-based JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) today was awarded highest honors in airline customer satisfaction among low-cost carriers by J.D. Power 2014 North America Airline Satisfaction Study℠, an estimable recognition the carrier has received every year from 2006 to 2014. JetBlue also ranked highest in customer satisfaction among all U.S. major airlines in 2005, when low-cost and traditional network carriers were combined in a single category, making this year's achievement its tenth consecutive J.D. Power award (a).

"It's an incredible honor to be ranked highest among low cost carriers in customer satisfaction by the traveling public for the tenth consecutive year," said Dave Barger, CEO of JetBlue Airways. "On behalf of the 15,000+ crewmembers at JetBlue we are humbled and we do not take this unprecedented distinction lightly. Our culture is one of service, and while there's always room for improvement, we are all committed to living the values and are dedicated to fulfill our mission of inspiring humanity each day."

The 2014 North America Airline Satisfaction Study℠ measures customer satisfaction among both business and leisure passengers of major North America carriers. The study is based on responses from more than 11,370 passengers who flew on a major North America airline between March 2013 and March 2014. The study was fielded between April 2013 and March 2014. The study measures overall customer satisfaction based on performance in seven measures (in order of importance): cost and fees; in-flight services; boarding/deplaning/baggage; flight crew; aircraft; check-in; and reservation.

This year's study once again highlighted travelers' use of technology during their journey. JetBlue launched Fly-Fi®, its inflight Wi-Fi product, on its Airbus 320 fleet last December to offer customers a significantly enhanced experience. The airline also offers its customers a variety of technology options to enhance their travels, from an easy-to-use website to smartphone applications that enable bookings, track their journey, provide real time flight status updates, and integrate with social media.

JetBlue, the 'un-airline' of the industry, soared above the rest in this year's in-flight services and aircraft measures. The airline has carved out a niche among competitors that is focused on delivering un-matched value to all customers with its core product offerings, including a first checked bag free of charge (b), unlimited complimentary in-flight snacks and non-alcoholic beverages, and a live in-flight entertainment system with 36 channels of free DIRECTV programming and more than 100 channels of free XM Satellite Radio at every comfortable leather seat (c). Customers can expect friendly service from the friendliest crewmembers in the sky while they kick back and enjoy in spacious aircraft cabins, which offer the most legroom in coach of any U.S. airline (d).

In celebration of this unprecedented recognition, JetBlue would like to thank its customers by giving them a chance to experience one of the airline's customers' favorite promotions -- All You Can Jet (AYCJ)! Starting today through May 23, 2014, 10 lucky customers will score an AYCJ pass for UNLIMITED travel from September 2 - November 2, 2014. Customers can go to www.jetblue.com/jdpower to enter the sweepstakes for a chance to win (e).
