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.

Airline executives showed investors a demonstration last week that suggested its new Internet service, powered by Excede, was more than twice as fast as three Wi-Fi competitors'.
