Anybody flying Jetblue in March? Changed flight times!
 
I happened to be on there today looking for a flight for a friend. We are flying March 2nd and the 15th from Buf to Mco. They changed both of our flights by about 40 mins!
The great thing for me was we were on the flight that left at 5:35 because it was $200 cheaper then the flight that was going at 8:00 am. We were able to change to the earlier flight with no fees! So take a look if you have flights booked for March Break!

We are the opposite...we booked the early one and paid more for it :(

I called Jetblue and talked to them on the phone! Just told them that the time change didn't work for me, and she said if the change was a half hour or more, they waived the change fee and we had no problems!!!

I've always received an email from Jet Blue when they change our flights.
For our Jan.2013 flight they have changed it 3 times. Each time I have received an email with the new times

I didn't receive an email, but I saw it pretty quick, because I have been checking for flights for a friend of mine that is coming with us now, and hasn't booked flights! They changed to smaller planes as well, and moved us seats, so you may want to check your seat assignments in case they changed yours as well!

how do you check seat assignments online??

We leave earlier now which I never would have checked the time and might have missed it, surprised they dont email the changes. We also leave earlier from Orlando which makes me cranky :(

You sign into your true blue account and manage flights then click on change seats and you can see your seats!

Wow! I appreciate the heads up on this cause I'll keep checking on them from time to time in case they do happen to change. From what I understand from previous post above, they don't email you a notification.

We have flown Jetblue four times now (fifth time coming up later this month) and they have changed our flight times on virtually every flight (usually by only 10-20 minutes or so , but in one case by several hours). In every case, we ALWAYS received a notice by email when the changes were implemented.

So definitely be proactive and keep checking yourself on their website, but also watch your email as they definitely do send notifications to travellers in that manner.

You are right Gina, I did finally receive an email about my return trip on Friday, about a time change. It changed to 25 mins earlier, but that was ok. But they never did notify me about my flight leaving on the 2nd. That being said, I did catch it quick, and took advantage of the time change and changed to the earlier flight I wanted. They also changed my seats on both flights, but there are 5 of us, and the plane they originally had scheduled had seats of 3 down both sides, and they changed to a plane that only had rows of 2 down both sides. So they did keep 4 of us together and 1 by themselves. I just went in accepted the time change and moved the 1 person to in front of us instead of 4 rows behind! They were wonderful to work with!

Our jet blue flights have always had a change too!

But we always got an e-mail. Admittedly quite a few weeks after the new times were posted online, so you can catch it before they let you know.
I also think we had to 'approve' the change, maybe just the ones that had a big time difference?
Anyway, one time I didn't click to approve straight away and they actually phoned me to make sure I had seen the change and was happy with it!
I was pretty impressed by their diligence to confirm the changes with us.

I just checked our flights for March and the time has changed for our departure flight.. Now I only have 40 min between our connecting flight at JFK... Should I be worried?
