My primary (actually, only) issue with JetBlue is that their frequent flyer program is weak. Or terrible. Or terribly weak. In fact, I never fly them anymore because of that. I will sit uncomfortably on another airline (United, usually, but sometimes US Airways) for 4 hours because of Mileage Plus, rather than sit in comfort watching TV on JetBlue. Yes, I feel like an idiot when I read that sentence.
So I was excited last month when I read about the JetBlue/Hawaiian partnership, that would allow me to earn Hawaiian miles (which can be transferred to Hilton on a 1:2 basis) when I fly JetBlue. Except that the earning table is horrible. So much for that.
So I was excited again this morning when I read that I can earn Emirates Skywards miles when I fly JetBlue (and vice versa). Alas, there is nothing to be excited about.
What does that mean? It means that you’ll earn 1/4 of a mile for every mile flown on JetBlue when you fly on a cheap(ish) ticket. Sad, really.
I’ll continue my quest to find a partner to which I should credit JetBlue flights.
Anyone credit JetBlue flights anywhere interesting?
