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][/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.
