    Super annoying to pay to fly earlier if you happen to be already at the airport. Isn’t it helping them to potentially have an open seat to fill on later flight if they manage to fly someone sooner?

    i also never understood the need to charge for unconfirmed standby other than a pure money grab. you’re filling an otherwise-empty seat and the airline can now either (1) re-sell your seat at sky-high last-minute walk-up fares, or (2) potentially reduce the need forexpensive VDB/IDB payouts …. AND you get to arrive earlier instead of wasting time inside a terminal.

      Jetblue doesn’t oversell. And, yes, it’s a pure money grab. Remember – this is a commercial for-profit business.

    Since I have to work in Worcester much of next year, just once I’m going to have to make the trip to IAD so I can connect to this flight – just to get the line and dot. But, probably just once.

      You could always connect from DCA through MCO or FLL, too. Possibly the same total travel time, depending on traffic to IAD. 😉

      You know I’ve already looked at those options. The price was more stupid than the travel time.

    I live in central Mass and this is very interesting news. I’m already Mosaic and mostly drive to Boston for nonstop options, but if the airfares are similar, I’d consider a JFK connection for the shorter, traffic-free drive, along with the free parking…
