Jetblue: New Redesigned Website & iPhone App

I downloaded the new Jetblue iPhone app a few days ago and was told in the same e-mail that a new redesigned website was coming.
Yesterday I received an e-mail from Jetblue once again that the new site was up and running.

Some highlights of the new site:

  • See customized fares & deals: We know where you fly from the most—see fares based on your most frequent departure locations. So if New York’s JFK is your home airport, we’ll show you trips from that location, making it easier to find the deals that matter to you. We’ll even show you how many seats are left for a particular flight.
  • Get real-time updates: Tracking your flights has never been easier. When your trip is approaching, the homepage on jetblue.com will show real-time updates on your flight, with links to everything else you need to know. You can even print your boarding pass.
  • Connect and share travel plans with people in your life:  Now it’s even easier to stay connected on the run—share your travel plans with friends and family on social media networks.
  • Get a ride from the airport: Our new Pick Me Up feature lets you send your itinerary along with directions to the arrival airport, so the person picking you up will never miss a step.
  • Navigate with ease: Everything you need to know about JetBlue is a single click away, thanks to our new, user-friendly navigation bar
  • Sign in to TrueBlue: Get an even more personalized experience when you sign in to your TrueBlue account, where you’ll find information that’s important to you.

Behind The Scenes: Your Bag’s Journey on Delta & Track My Bags App.

Have you ever wondered what happens to your luggage once it hits the conveyor belt after checking in for your flight??? I always thought it was pretty impressive that more bags did not get lost every day.

Personally I’ve had luggage issues a few times. Three times my luggage did not get to me until much later in the day after arriving from a flight. One time my luggage did not make it home with me. We had to head home from the airport in freezing weather without a winter jacket. But it got returned the following day!
Delta made a really interesting video to show what happens to luggage when it goes behind the rubber flaps:
They took one bag and  added six cameras to it and showed the journey it took from check-in in Atlanta to getting loaded onto the plane to getting picked up in NY.
Check out the video here:

Delta has also added a Track My Bags feature to the Fly Delta App! Pretty cool if you ask me.
