JetBlue Pet Policy

Carry-On Pet Policy:

JetBlue accepts small cats and dogs in the cabin of the aircraft on both domestic and international flights (no other animals are allowed). The non-refundable fee for a pet is $100 each way, and the combined weight of the pet and carrier may not exceed 20 pounds. Pets must remain completely in the carrier with the door closed and under the seat during the entire time that the pet is in the aircraft. Pets are not accepted on flights to or from, Barbados, Jamaica and St. Lucia.

Checked Bagage/Cargo Policy:

Due to the lack of oxygen and pressurized air, JetBlue does not transport animals in the cargo area.

Carrier Guidelines:

Your pet must fit comfortably in a carrier that does not exceed 17"l x 12.5"w x 8"h. He/she must be able to stand up and move around in the carrier with ease, and only one pet is allowed per carrier. Carriers must have a leak proof bottom and must be well ventilated on at least two sides. If your carrier does not meet these guidelines, you can purchase an official JetBlue carrier made by Sherpa at the airport for a non-refundable fee of $50. Please note that your pet and carrier will count as your one personal item, and you will not be able to use online flight check in, so the gate agent can check that your pet carrier meets the requirements for flight.

Pet Reservations:

Only four pets are allowed per flight, so it's important to book your pet's ticket as early as possible. To do so, simply call JetBlue at 1-800-JETBLUE and let the reservations agent know that you would like to travel with your pet. They will verify pet availability on the flights you are considering, and book your ticket over the phone. Only one pet is allowed per customer, but exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.

wonderful
preemiememe in westbury
Jetblue was terrific, yes i kept my puppy under the seat for take off and landings,its safer in case we bounce in a airpocket.afterwards i kept my hand in the carrier,they were understanding and never bothered me.i also respected the rules.
 
Babies and Dogs
Just Me in L.A
Oh Shut up with the crying baby thing! I hate baby, kid or dog haters too! Wait until you kids and people start looking at you! If you dont plan to then good, stick to your dog. I have been with babies and they never cried or stink. So dont exaggerate! I never mind dogs either, and I am allergic! Both should be able to fly and I love jet blue for it. I think an air line should have a flight with dogs all sizes and cats on a flight. I bet it would sell.
 
JET BLUE OUTSTANDING!
Lexi in San Juan
I do not know why they get such low ratings. I lived in Miami and had 4 rescues, all small breed-I was accompanied by a friend and we were able to PURCHASE two more seats for the two others and pay the dog fee (yes a rip off but beat making two trips) and bring all four in the cabin. One of mine chewed his way out of his JET BLUE carrier and was on my lap the whole flight and nobody said a thing! One was panicky and I placed his carrier next to me, opened it and kept my hand in it and my other two were under my feet and my friend's respectively and each of us had feet INSIDE the half opened carriers and nobody said a thing! I think the well being of my dogs is far more important than money and if I had to pay for two extra seats and 100 dollars per dog--it was worth having them with me and knowing they felt secure!
 
Get over it.
Whitney in Palm Beach
Whether you like dogs, don't like dogs, or are allergic to dogs, if I have to pay an extra $100 more than you to have my dog for WHATEVER reason on a flight, then you get over it. Granted I have a 10lb Bichon who is hypoallergenic, does not shed, and never barks. I can't stand people who are animal hatred.. How cold can your heart be? Geez!
 
I would definitely prefer a small dog to a screaming kid on flight
Lori in Manchester, NH
I had to deal with a baby crying and smelling of poop in the diaper the whole flight and smelling up the toilet when his mom went to change his diaper while my maltese laid quietly in her carrier under the seat sound asleep almost the whole trip and I got charged both ways for her.

Lovely but Expensive
Cindi in Coral Springs, FL
I have take my yorkie on Jetblue flights several times. The attendants were ALWAYS extremely sweet and considerate. My dog was 16 and blind so I wanted to hold him and they didn't have a problem with it. He slept in my arms the entire flight. On the other hand, the cost...I just don't get it. If the dog counts as my carry on, why are they charging me one hundred dollars? The carrier fits completely under the seat which most travelers luggage won't even do. I can't stand it when people bring huge suitcases and try to shove them in the above compartment for free and I slide my little carrier under the seat in front of me for one hundred dollars. Small children fly free. I just don't get the reason for the fee especially it being so high.
 
great
max in newtown Ct
sorry made a typo i meant to say newtown and five bones all the way :) :)
 
Not a problem
danny in Los Angeles
I have flown Jetblue several times from Burbank to JFK. Bailey, our 9 pound dog fits perfectly under the seat in our carrier. We hav always be able to take her out of the carrier and put her under our blanket where she sleeps the entire trip.
 
Size Restriction
Carlo in New York
Hey Guys, I know Jet Blue has a carrier size restriction the carrier being 8.5" tall. I already own a soft sided carrier that is 11" tall. I know I can easily squeeze it underneath the seat if the clearance is really on 8.5" tall. Do you think they will give me a hard time about this? Thanks for any answers or suggestions.
 
Pretty Great, but depends on the flight crew
Daisy in SF
One way they were awesome and went out of their way to make sure everything was comfortable for my dog and that she was happy. On the return flight, they were not quite as nice (and strictly enforced the no out of cage rule). overall very kind, considerate and caring.
 
Allergistas Get Over Yourself
M in clearlake
People with "dangerous" inhalation allergies to pets or other "toxic" elements probably shouldn't be out in public anywhere, much less on a public plane, without a respirator. Sounds like BS to me. For all anyone knows, the person sitting next to them on a plane may have 30 cats or 10 dogs at home, and is covered with this "toxic" stuff. Not likely a tiny pet who is UNDER the seat is going to be spewing "toxic" dander anywhere. If one's allergies are that "life-threatening", one should probably use a personal form of transportation or charter a private flight. Why should pet owners (and their pets) have to bear the burden? Thanks Jet Blue for offering the service! It could be better if the price were more reasonable, though. I agree with many of the other commenters here., $100. each way seems a little bit price gougey for a tiny bag that has to sit under one's seat.
 
pets
pat in oakdale,long Island
I also have pet allergies,If people want to travel with their animals put them in their personal cars and they could smell each other,The same goes for pet friendly hotels.Get a sitter or board them.I don;t feel like sleeping in a bed with fleas and who knows what else.
 
$100 really?
Christine in Syracuse
My ticket cost $58 - should the pet fee really be almost twice the fee for an actual seat? Couldn't I just purchase another passenger ticket? - ridiculous
 
Prefer Dogs To Kids and Annoying People
Donna in New York
I flew on Jet Blue many years ago and had a particularly nasty flight attendant who made our trip worse than it should have been. I wrote a complaint letter, Jet Blue has come a long way since then. Maybe others had similar experiences to prompt this. I am also severely asthmatic and to all the surly "allergy sufferers" who complain about pets on board, take your medicine and politely ask the flight attendant to have your seat changed if you are that upset to be near an animal. It's not all about you, some of us enjoy travel with our pets. BTW I would pay an increased fare to fly comfortably in an exclusively pet friendly cabin. I wish there was an airline that would offer that option.
 
SF to JFK
HDN in Rochester, NY
Cabin temperature was hot...felt like I was in a sauna. Didn't appreciate the barking dog on the flight either. Now that I know JB allows pets, I"ll have to use other airlines.
 
Why so expensive
C in LA
$100 each way-- that's overkill and absurd. How often do pets fly anyway? Is there a way that the fees can be reduced to a more reasonable amount???
 
Disappointed
Giselle in Orlando
I am not too happy traveling with my pet through Jet Blue. Why? The last time I traveled a round trip from Orlando to Aguadilla with my dog (she weighs 15 pounds and is a small breed--Jack Russell Terrier) AFTER paying for her ticket and AFTER being approved by the airline people at the airport, I get on the plane, sit in my seat and, all of a sudden, a flight attendant comes by and says "the dog is too big"…she was completely under the seat sleeping They, AGAIN, checked the dog and the bag INSIDE the plane. Of course, everyone looks at you like you are breaking some law. I was very upset and disappointed because after making sure everything was done exactly how they asked for, I encounter this problem when ON the plane. We have traveled from Orlando to PR with our dog like 3 times already and this is the ONLY time we have this problem. Oh, and this did not happen from Orlando to Aguadilla, it happened from Aguadilla to Orlando. BTW, my dog gets on the plane and sleeps. She does not bark; she just sleeps (the person who sat next to us didn't even realize we had a dog under our seat until the flight attendant came talking about "how big she is")
 
stupid
Joe in California
It's stupid how you can't take big dogs only small dogs.
 
22lb dog
Maureen in Boston
How can I get my 11 year old dog to Florida. She weighs 22 lbs and Jet Blues limit Is 20lbs
 
100$ each way for a 3 lb bag?
Elbi Gowen in NY
100$ each way for a 3 lb bag? How is this justifiable? What resources exactly does a 3lb pound bag take up that is different then the everage free tote stored on under seats? Airlines are just banking on the fact that we will do anything for our pets. They have lost money with me though. ;-) I now drive to places i would have flown to which also saves me on car rental fees!
 
That's ok I can drive
Ali in New York
These airlines are desperate to fleece customers. When they told me I would pay 100 each way to bring a 5 pound dog I canceled my flight and decided to drive. The trip was fun and instead of flying every month I will drive from no on. ;-)
 
Airlines should offer separate pet cabins
Jared in Denver, Colorado
I don't mind pets at all but for people with severe allergies...its not a good fit here. Being in a confined space for long periods of time with no real breeze...ouch. Pet owners pay extra because a pet is not a person no matter how much you love them. Sorry.

100$$$$$ for a carry on?????
Celia in NYC
Most people do not know my pet is even on the flight unless they see me giving my dog water in her carrier. Can you really say the same about people who take up more then their seat, open newspapers that take over your seat, have poor hygiene, badly behaving children, extra loud mp3's with thumping bass, terribly perfume, smelly food, screaming children, children kicking your seat? They are blantantly ripping people off. Makes me wonder when they might shut off the air and charge you for it! Oh you need air, that will be 20 dollars...how would you like to pay for that?
 
Only dogs and cats?
Jeff in dallas
Only dogs and cats !, come on there are other pets in this world too. This stupid airline wouldn'd let me fly my own guinea pig who is less trouble than a dog or cat and alot less noisy. Other owners would probally say the same thing about there non canine and feline pets. They also won't allow rabbits,ferrets,hamsters,pot bellied pigs, but I dont blame them for birds their noisy.

carry on for dogs and cats
Karen in New York
How can any dog or cat walk around freely with a height restriction of 8"??? Only TopoGiGo the mouse could do that. Unbelievable. You just lost my fare.
 
working dogs need to work
Nancy in Minneapolis
I have not as yet flown Jet Blue, but may this fall. Any problems with flying with your companion or service dog who doesn't fit under the seat? Some airlines are better than others, so wondering pps experience.
 
Stand up?
Courtney in Washington DC
Hi, We have a 10 lb. Boston Terrier puppy. He fits comfortably in his soft-sided carrier, and can move around but he definitely cannot stand up. Is this going to be a problem?
 
Larry in Portland
Emma in Washington, DC
Larry, I completely empathize. I have a similar physical intolerance to cigarette smoke, perfume & cologne, car exhausts (worse if it's a bus or commercial vehicle), and mold. Any of which can land me in bed immobile for 4 days with a migraine. It's trouble, but you can avoid the situation you described. I'm constantly surrounded by people wearing cologne or smoking...who frankly couldn't care less that their behavior makes me (and others) ill!
 
Two Sides to Every Story
Larry in Portland, Or
Dog and cat dander can result in an extremely dangerous medical condition for me with breathing become very, very difficult. Recirculated air in cabins makes this a severe situation for me. The only airline that would not allow pets has recently changed its policy so that I can no longer fly at all. Recently had to drive from Portland Or to Miami to Boston and back to Portland, 11,000 miles in five weeks. No fun. Pet owners, please be aware and considerate of human needs too.
 
bad
dalma in long beach
