jetblue carry on 

The JetBlue carry on baggage allowance includes one carry on bag, plus one personal item. The carry-on bag must not be bigger than 22 x 14 x 9 in (55.88 x 35.56 x 22.86 cm) and the personal item must not exceed 17 x 13 x 8 in (43.2 x 33 x 20.32 cm).

If a passenger’s carry on bag does not fit in the overhead locker, the bag will be checked at the gate.

jetblue children's luggage 

There is no JetBlue baggage allowance for infants sitting on an adult’s lap. However, the accompanying adult may bring a diaper bag, pushchair and car seat for the child, as well as their own carry-on items.

jetblue pets on board

Certain domestic pets can be brought on board the aircraft, and placed, in their carrier, under the seat in front. Passengers are allowed to bring only one pet on board, and a maximum of four pets may be present on board a flight. A pet must be in a carrier with dimensions that do not exceed 17 x 12.5 x 8.5 in. The combined total weight of the pet and its carrier must not be greater than 20 lbs. A carrier counts as one carry-on item. The fee for bringing a pet on board is $100, one way.

jetblue checked baggage allowance

The JetBlue checked baggage allowance permits items of luggage to be checked into the hold, as long as they measure no more than 62 inches (157.48 cm) in total dimensions and they weigh no more than 50 lbs (22.68 kg).

The JetBlue checked baggage allowance on Blue Plus and Blue Flex fares is one bag, free of charge. On Blue fares, however, this first checked bag must be paid for, at a cost of $25, online.

A second checked bag costs $35 on Blue and Blue Plus fares (free with Blue Flex), and a third, or any additional bag, costs $100.

Mint fare passengers are allowed two checked bags up to 70 lbs (31.7 kg) each.

jetblue excess baggage fees

If a bag is over the weight permitted by JetBlue’s checked baggage allowance, $100 per bag will be charged.

If a bag is oversized, the charge is also $100.

No bag larger than 80 in or heavier than 99 lbs will be accepted.

If a bag is both overweight and oversized, the two fees will apply.

jetblue exceptional items

Exceptional items, such as sports equipment, are accepted as checked luggage, and often without additional fees being charged. You will not be required to pay extra to check a golf bag, for example, as long as it does not exceed weight limitations. Bicycles, however, generally incur a fee of $50, one way. Overweight baggage fees will not be charged for bikes, but they must not exceed 99 lbs.

Musical instruments may be checked into the hold as desired, and count as one item of checked luggage. No additional fees are charged for musical instruments, provided they are within size and weight restrictions.
