    I wonder what they consider “extenuating circumstances” with regards to dietary restrictions. I’m generally in the middle of one or another of healthy eating regimens, and if they told me that I had no choice but to take what they are giving me, I might find that rather upsetting. Even when I am not specifically eating for a certain goal, I like having a choice, and I like something with some tangible amount of protein.

      I would hope that food allergies and major intolerances would be considered extenuating circumstances. For the most part, the premade boxes include nuts in some form, which makes at least part of it inedible for me, and I would imagine that diabetics and vegetarians/vegans would be in the same predicament.

      Good news is that the BeefUp box definitely has protein in there. And lots of sodium, too. I really like the *idea* of doing this (even with the new product after the old stuff runs out), but those boxes are so unhealthy.

    This is a smart cost-cutting move by JetBlue, but not good for the consumer.  Personally, I hate box lunches and prefer to pick out my own food.  It makes sense to offer this as a choice for those who prefer the convenience, but not to completely eliminate the food voucher.
