jetBlue Continues Migration to Full Service Carrier

Jetblue has finally conceded that actually it does need a way to pay for tickets sold via Travelagents on the GDSs.

So facing the inevitable - they have joined ARC. This makes jetBlue a true conventional carrier. The only think missing is (drumroll please) Interlining. Well it sort of already does that with virtual interlining to several airline partners.

Then in reality it is a regular Network carrier.

So let's review:

Participation in GDS - Check
Interlining - Check
Travel Agent sales - Check
ARC participant - Check
Sabre as PSS (coming soon) - Check
Regular fares and Services - Check

So what about this isn't a regular airline
