American Airlines and JetBlue’s partnership just leveled up.
As of March 23, 2022, elite status holders with American Airlines and JetBlue will now benefit from even more reciprocal perks when flying both carriers thanks to enhancements to the formidable Northeast Alliance (NEA).
The goal of the partnership is twofold: the possibility to fly both airlines on 1 ticket means passengers are able to transfer seamlessly between flights while still being able to make the most of their elite benefits, and the airlines benefit from more passengers. It’s a win-win situation.
“American and JetBlue are committed to delivering a seamless travel experience to customers through our Northeast Alliance,” said Alison Taylor, Chief Customer Officer at American Airlines.
Let’s take a look at the exciting new benefits for American Airlines and JetBlue status holders.
More Reciprocal Benefits for American and JetBlue Elites
The NEA took off to new heights back in October 2021 with the introduction of reciprocal priority check-in, priority baggage, priority security, and priority boarding.
As of March 23, 2022, AAdvantage status members with have complimentary access to Even More Space seats when flying JetBlue, and TrueBlue Mosaic members will have complimentary access to Main Cabin Extra when flying American Airlines.
“We know our most loyal customers love the added perks and flexibility that come with being a TrueBlue Mosaic member, which is why, together with American, we’re extending more great benefits to our travelers when they are flying on American-operated flights,” said Don Uselmann, Vice President of Loyalty and Personalization at JetBlue.
Hot Tip: You can now fly JetBlue from New York to London in the stunning JetBlue Mint Suite. When the route launched in the fall of 2021, it was the airline’s first venture across the pond.
The next phase of the partnership will come in April when Admirals Club members traveling on JetBlue flights will have access to Admiral’s Club lounges across America.
As JetBlue has no dedicated lounges (even when flying business class), JetBlue Mosaic status holders will remain unable to access lounges for free when flying with American Airlines in economy.
American Airlines and JetBlue’s formidable NEA is going from strength to strength.
Passengers with AAdvantage and TrueBlue elite status will be able to make the most of even more of their benefits when flying with both American Airlines and JetBlue.
