Has anyone flown using this airline lately? What kind of snacks do they serve? Were they accomodating? Thanks.

Hi Emmie,
We flew Jet Blue this past February, and they were great! They do serve a snack mix that contains sesame seeds, but I don't remember anything loaded with nuts. They may have served a "may contain" item, but I really can't remember. Guess I wasn't too helpful!
The planes are far cleaner than any other's I've flown and the staff very helpful. Sit back, relax and enjoy that personal TV [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] .

The people around these forums don't know the meaning of "relax." Don't tell them to relax! Think of the children!

Jockster, (and those of similiar personality)
You most likely are in the process of or soon will be getting a "higher education". If you already have, you most likely are unemployed.
Most likely, someday you will be in search of, or offered a really, really, desireable position of employment. If you make it that far in the interview process, most likely or certainly you will have to submit to a background check and psychological eval.
Trust me, this would probably entail a lie detector test (as well as credit check, lol---which will prove more frightening for you, I could only guess). On the psych and lie detector test (sometimes performed simultaneously) questions regarding your current activity might be posed.
Here is to assuring you, most likely,

My PA/TNA husband and I fly Jet Blue regularly, and have always found them to be helpful, understanding, and well educated in this issue. They do serve some "may contain" snacks, but also some that are definitely clean. As usual, we've found there is more to worry about from the other passengers than the airline crew... especially on longer JB flights. Since they don't serve meals, passengers bring their own food, so BE VIGILANT about the people around you. But like I said, the crew is great and always willing to help if you sense an issue.

Yes! I have been on 2 times with my PA DD. Once just one month ago and the trip went fine. I emailed and had it put on the manifest, when I got to the airport I asked for an annoucement, early boarding (which I did and I wiped down the seat).Then I put one of toppers on the airline tray table.
I also flew about a year and a half ago it went better this time, last time almonds were served (not this time, not sure why, myDD is only allergic to peanut)This time much nicer and more understanding!!

Yes I just flew with Jet Blue last week with my PA daughter. They served 4 snack choices on our flight, one of which was to be cashews. However they were great about removing this as a snack choice from the flight when I checked at the gate that there would be no nuts on the flight as I had a PA child. Took all nuts off the plane and did an extra clean/wipe down prior to allowing us to board. I felt completely at ease bringing my daughter on board.
They also made an announcement on the plane -- at their own initiative ie I'd not asked them to do so -- that there was a PA child on board and asking people not to consume any nuts they may have brought on the plane themselves (which in my experience is the bigger risk in any case, ie nuts carried on by other passengers).

I emailed themthis week becuase we are going to Florida in April. The rep said that they do not serve peanuts and would make an annoucement if we requested, but they serve almonds, pistachios and cashews. She did not say that they would be willing to not serve those.
I want to fly but I am so nervous. What if someone else brings peanut butter etc on the plane?? I just dont know what would happen. I mean in all honesty if someone was eating a peanut butter sandwich onthe plane would it affect a pa person? And I mean if they do not come into phyiscal contact with it

would recommend jet blue highly just flew on them on friday . as long as you tell them when you book the flight so they can note it. and when you board, and let the steward(ess's) know they make an announcement, and they served animal crackers potatoe chips and cheeze its or something that was cheezy, we brought our own snack, very smooth flight and just great to fly. and they took her allergy very seriously.

We are going to Florida the week of 2/20 - we booked jetBlue based on the many posts here and the positive feedback we read. When I booked the flight they were very clear that they were making a note in the file and to tell the gate staff when we check in.
We will let you know how it goes!

well worth flying jet blue..i did want to make a note that the three places you have to tell them is when you book the flight. when you check in . and when you actually board the plane. everyone that i told was very nice and did indeed take it very seriously. they also make a note as to what seat you are in and they request that anyone on board that has brought a snack to refrain from eating it if contains any kind of nut product. they did ask me if she was all nut allergic and i said no but we do avoid all nuts any way just in case and they chose not to serve any nuts period. wonderful wonderful wonderful!!!!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img] i love this airline!!! they are fantastic!!!!!!

I have flown Jet Blue 2 times with my pa/tna dd. I give them all of the info during the reservations and again at check in. The first time we went to FL. and on both the outgoing and return flights we were moved to the front of the plane and an announcement was made. Great experience.
Our last flight was in Nov.05 going from NY to San Juan. I again gave the info during reservations,check in and to the flight attendants. This time we were not able to move our seats to the front (I think that helps to buffer her from people bringing things onboard). I asked at check in and they said to ask while boarding. I was told it was too early to determine at the boarding desk but, when I went back 1/2hr later they told me they had booked those seats.
The flight attendants told me that I was the first one to mention the allergy to them. They were great about removing the almonds and making an announcement to other passengers asking that they not eat any nut products during the flight. I just feel that since I made sure that I told everyone and it was noted in our reservations, someone would know about it.
The return flight was not as good. One of the flight attendants remembered us from the week before but I still had to remind them. I also had to remind them twice to please make the announcement and surprisingly all of the other announcements were make in English and Spanish but the allergy announcement was made only in English.
I was disappointed in Jet Blue on this trip and when they sent me an email asking me to rate the experience - I let them know! I got a reply back (probably standard statement) saying they would forward my comments to headquarters and San Juan. I'm not sure who to use the next time we fly. I just don't feel as confident with Jet Blue as I did the first time.
Just wanted to share this with you.
Sorry, this is a little off topic but-
I bought Spanish translation cards and used them at the McDonalds at the airport in San Juan. I was so glad I had them. They must use peanut oil in the fries and nuggets. When they read the card they didn't want to sell me anything!
