JetBlue Airways Corporation, stylized just as jetBlue, is a popular American low-cost carrier, as well as the 6th-largest United States' airline.

The company of JetBlue is headquartered in Long Island City neighborhood of New York City borough of Queens, with a main base located at John F. Kennedy International Airport. JetBlue Airways Corporation also maintains corporate offices in Orlando, Florida and Cottonwood Heights, Utah.

JetBlue Airways Corporation

The frequent-flyer program of JetBlue is called TrueBlue and under the airline's original TrueBlue program, all flights were worth 2, 4, or 6 points based on flights' distance. Double points were awarded for JetBlue flights booked online.

JetBlue made changes to the TrueBlue program in September 2009. According to the new TrueBlue program, members receive 3 points for each dollar spent towards a flight, excluding fees and taxes. Members earn additional 3 points for every dollar spent in case they book online on JetBlue website. Additional 2 points are awarded in case the member uses a cobranded American Express credit card to pay for the flight. The flights' price in points depends on the fare in U.S. dollars. The new JetBlue program launched November 9, 2009.

In June 2013, JetBlue Airways announced that TrueBlue points would never expire for any reason. Today, the policy of the company states that in case members book their flight online, they earn double with 6 points per dollar. JetBlue flights purchased elsewhere earn 3 points per dollar spent.
