Major Prize Giveaways Monday through Friday, Designed to Showcase the JetBlue Experience, Including the Most Legroom in Coach

NEW YORK- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq:JBLU) announces it will host a week-long celebration of its seventh anniversary with daily prize giveaways on its website, www.jetblue.com. Each day’s prize is designed around the idea of „stretching out“ — now that JetBlue has the most legroom in coach(a). JetBlue recently removed a row of seats from all A320 aircraft, resulting in at least 36-inch legroom in rows 1-11, and at least 34-inch legroom in rows 12-25.

„Our customers have come to love JetBlue’s 36 channels of DIRECTV programming and our comfy all-leather seats,“ said JetBlue Founder and CEO David Neeleman. „Our goal has always been to make the cabin as comfortable as your living room, and we’re taking that to new heights this year by removing a row of seats from our Airbus 320 fleet. JetBlue now has the most legroom in coach(a), and to celebrate our seventh anniversary, we are going to bring the JetBlue Experience to your living room! These prizes will let you stretch out even when you aren’t flying JetBlue.“
