    Cool.
    Some other airlines have that, but you have to call and ask 🙂

    I think the majors force you to pay a change fee in order to get a price adjustment

    I regularly do the same thing online with Soithwest, but can only rebook for the same name. Call AirTran regularly to get an account credit which can. E used for anybody. Does JetBlue have any limitations on WHO the credit can be used on?

    Nice to know you can now take care of it online, I’ve used this in the past over the phone and it was still very easy and very worth the $70 per ticket I saved…got my wife a free trip to Disneyland since the voucher can be used for anyone traveling.

    At least when I used it the credits went to my TravelBank account, I applied travelbank voucher numbers to the ticket.

    I’ve had to change my flight in the past and was always charged a fee i.e. $50 if original flight was under $100, and $100 if the original flight was over $100, and i would have to pay the difference if the change was more than the original, or get a refund if it was less. Has that policy been changed I wonder.

    I just tried to this on an existing flight I have cause the prices have changed and it doesn’t let me do the change to get a credit, it says that no changes have been made cause I’m choosing the same flight.

    I tried to do this today (May 2013) and got an error message. Previously I wasn’t aware you could do this online; I thought you had to call. I don’t know if the error message was a deliberate, permanent change; a temporary change; or if it’s due to me having gotten a credit on the same itinerary already (it dropped two days in a row).

    Also, you can use Yapta to get notified if the price drops. It’s only really useful on airlines that will give you a credit without a fee.

    Another note, to those who encountered a change fee: JetBlue will charge a fee if you get cash back. If you get a credit towards future travel (use within one year) there is no change fee.

    […] there is still the free repricing of the same flight for a credit if the fare goes down which is available to all […]

    I’m seeing the same thing as Steve and Alexandra. I’ve done this online in the past and successfully received the credit exactly as you detail, but a flight I am booked on had a price drop and I just tried to change the seats and when I do it pops up an error message saying there was no change to your itinerary.
