JetBlue Asks Frequent Travelers, Are You up for the Challenge?

The Customer-Centric Airline Announces the TrueBlue Mosaic Challenge and a TrueBlue Mosaic Status Match; TrueBlue Members and Travelers With Certain Status on Other Carriers Can Qualify for Mosaic Benefits (a)

NEW YORK, NY --(Marketwired - March 18, 2014) - JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) recognizes the struggles that today's air travelers have in making sure their loyalty really does get rewarded, especially with the many recent changes to other carriers' frequent flier programs. Today, JetBlue is launching two ways for customers to see what sets its loyalty program, TrueBlue, apart from the rest:

  • Mosaic status match - Anyone with specified status in qualifying loyalty programs (a) will automatically be eligible for TrueBlue Mosaic® through 2014 simply by signing up for the Challenge.
  • TrueBlue Mosaic® Challenge - Anyone who flies enough to meet the Challenge earns Mosaic benefits for the remainder of 2014 and 2015 (a).

"As other carriers devalue their loyalty programs for most of their fliers, TrueBlue is actually strengthening its value for members. In fact, we recently introduced features such as points that don't expire and Family Pooling," said Kelly Roe, JetBlue's director of loyalty and partnerships. "This is a great opportunity for travelers enrolled in other airline loyalty programs to see what makes TrueBlue and Mosaic unique. Our existing TrueBlue members now have a faster path to earn Mosaic and receive even more benefits."

Match and Challenge Details:

Starting today through April 18, 2014, TrueBlue members can sign up for the Mosaic Challenge.

Anyone with the specified status in one of the qualifying airline loyalty programs will be eligible for automatic Mosaic status match through 2014 when they sign up for the Mosaic Challenge (a). All that is required is proof of current status. Anyone is eligible to sign up for the Challenge, regardless of their status on other carriers.

Customers who complete the challenge, where participants have 90 days to earn 3,750 base (qualifying) flight points, will receive Mosaic status for the rest of 2014 through December 31, 2015 (a). Base flight points equate to three points per $1 a customer earns on the base fare of their individual JetBlue flight.

TrueBlue Mosaic provides JetBlue's most frequent fliers with more points, benefits and exclusive offers from valuable partners. To qualify for Mosaic, TrueBlue members must purchase and fly 30 JetBlue flight segments plus earn 12,000 base flight points or earn 15,000 base flight points within the calendar year (b).

The amount of base flight points earned by a Challenge participant will be solely determined by JetBlue and its tallying. JetBlue will be the sole and official timekeeper that will determine, in its sole discretion, when the 90-day Challenge period for a participant begins and ends. Whether or not a Challenge participant has completed the Challenge and earned TrueBlue Mosaic will be solely determined by JetBlue. JetBlue shall not be obligated to review any records or other documents or information from Challenge participants or to consider any arguments by Challenge participants. JetBlue shall have the right to disqualify from the Challenge any participant JetBlue deems, in its sole discretion, has violated the terms of the Challenge or engaged in any type of fraud, misrepresentation or improper conduct. JetBlue may, in its sole discretion and for any reason, without notice or liability, modify or terminate the Challenge at any time. All deadlines based on Eastern Standard Time. Additional restrictions apply. See the TrueBlue Terms and Conditions for details.

(b) JetBlue flights are flights operated by JetBlue and purchased under a JetBlue flight number. Base flight points are the 3 points per $1 you earn on the base fare of your individual JetBlue flight purchase. A "segment" means any origin-destination pair; a one-way flight (whether non-stop or including a connection) is one segment, and a roundtrip flight (whether non-stop or including a connection) is two segments. Award flights do not count towards Mosaic. Mosaic membership is good for one calendar year. Additional restrictions apply. See the TrueBlue Terms and Conditions for details.
