Our Newest Partner: Japan Airlines!

We’re excited to expand our partnership network with the addition of Japan Airlines!

Effective immediately, customers may book tickets for combined travel on JetBlue and Japan Airlines through JAL’s gateways at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK). Customers may book their connecting travel by calling Japan Airlines or by contacting their preferred travel agent.

JAL offers twice-daily nonstop service from both LAX and JFK to the carrier’s hub at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport, where travellers may connect onward to most major cities in Asia including Bangkok, Beijing, Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Seoul, Shanghai, and Taipei.

From New York, JetBlue offers easy connections between JAL-operated flights and cities up and down the United States’ East Coast including Buffalo/Niagara Falls, Charlotte, Raleigh-Durham, and cities throughout Florida. From Los Angeles, JetBlue and JAL will offer connecting service to Boston, New York, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Boston – Asia service to begin in April
The Japanese carrier plans to begin nonstop service between Tokyo-Narita and our Boston focus city later this year – an exciting new route that marks the commercial debut of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner in the U.S. market – making Boston the third connecting point between JetBlue and JAL. The new service between Boston and Tokyo, operated by JAL as part of its transpacific joint business agreement with American Airlines, will be the only nonstop link from New England to Asia.

With a mid-day arrival and departure time, JAL’s new service is perfectly timed for onward connections with JetBlue to destinations throughout the Northeast and Florida.

    I would recommend JAL if you can beausce they treat their passengers with a taste of Japanese-ness from foods, on-board movies, and the stewardess are more professional; the standards for hiring an airline stewardess is very high for JAL. I have relatives who worked for JAL recruiting and some years they only hire 3 out of 100 applicants.In terms of price, it will depend on the season beausce that is the big determining factor in pricing and not really the carrier. If you buy your tickets far ahead, you can usually save a little.Since you have never flown before, here are some tips that will make it more enjoyable:1) Get what is call a Dogbone neck pillow. It’s an inflatable C-shape pillow that you put around your neck to help you sleep a little more comfortable. When you use it, don’t inflate it to the max, but about 3/4 of the way. The airlines provide pillows but I’ve found them all way too soft.2) If you are sensitive to light when you sleep, get an eye mask for sleeping. Often times, there will be some inconsiderate idiot who want to read all the way to Japan and they would have their overhead lamps on. Very annoying especially when the airline deliberately lower the lights in the cabin to let people sleep.3) Get a pair or more of the memory foam ear plugs. Again, for sleeping.4) Drink plenty of water or non-alcoholic drinks. Avoid alcohol beausce the long flight in the dry cabin atmosphere will dehydrate you and alcohol makes it worse.5) If you are one of those people who gets sick to their stomach when riding roller-coaster, you may be prone to air sickness. The airlines provide what is call a barf-bag and you’ll find it in the pouch-like compartment in the back to the seat in front of you. Just in case 6) Always keep your seat belt on when you sit down. Severe air turbulance are rare, but they do happen and have been known to be violent enough to throw passengers out of their seats.7) Dress comfortably and wear the most comfortable shoes you have. Use the restroom, don’t wait. You’ll thank me 9) Enjoy the flight, but get your sleep. You are going to feel a bit jet-lagged when you land, so it it important you get a good sleep. When you get to Japan, take it easy the first 24 hours so your body can adjust. Have a wonderful trip!
