Sleep Less In Seattle; Fly JetBlue Overnight To New York City

New Nonstop Service Offers Brand New Planes, Leather Seats, Free Inseat Satellite TV And Fares Up to 75% Less Than The Competition

New York, NY, 05/01/2001 -- “JetBlue’s new nonstop Seattle service offers our passengers more time and great value,” said David Neeleman, CEO of JetBlue Airways. “Late evening departures are popular for a full day at work or play at either end of the trip, and our low fares and great service mean that savings don’t have to mean skimping on little luxuries, like leather seats and free satellite TV.”

JetBlue’s fares between New York and Seattle range between $129 and $299 each way. The $299 each way walk-up fare is as much as 75% below walk-up fares on other carriers serving the route nonstop. Flights from Seattle to New York City will also make convenient round-trip connections to all of JetBlue’s northeastern destinations, Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and Burlington, with fares as low as $159 each way.

JetBlue’s flight schedule is:

New York/JFK to Seattle/SEA Seattle/SEA to New York/JFK
Depart - Arrive Depart - Arrive
9:00 pm - 11:59 pm (starting May 1**) 12:55 am - 8:55 am (starting May 2)

**On May 1 only, the inaugural flight will depart JFK at 6:15pm, arriving in Seattle at 9:15pm
