Me to JetBlue Airways: I'm blue without the BluePass.
I bought one last year for $1,200 and hopped a dozen flights in and out of Long Beach, often on a same-day basis. Leaves changing in Seattle? I went. Cool art show in Chicago? Gone again. For three months last fall, I made like a mini jet-setter with an unlimited number of trips to numerous destinations, including Salt Lake City and San Antonio.
Now JetBlue has changed the formula. On Tuesday, it rolled out the Go Pack, which features 10 nonstop trips for a flat rate in seven city-to-city combinations. For Southern Californians, only the Long Beach Go Pack applies. For $999, you get 10 one-way flights from Long Beach to San Francisco, Oakland, Sacramento, Seattle, Portland, Ore., or Las Vegas. (Add $7 per flight for tax and fees.)
Other Go Packs feature city combinations that begin in Boston, Pittsburgh, New York or San Juan, Puerto Rico, that last one convenient for hops to Caribbean islands. To be clear, you have to fly from the Go Pack city of origin to take advantage of the pass. So even though there's a Boston Go Pack that flies to Los Angeles, the reverse isn't offered.
