Honourable. As opposed to gouging customers. customers. How it should be done, in these circumstances.

Look up other carrier's prices to get out of florida. Ugly.

Well Done, JetBlue (and Delta I believe)
As opposed to our fine carriers, during similar circumstances:

And before I read it, yes, OK AC fixed it. But isn't it great to see a carrier do it proactively, in advance?
I realize this is a dead horse. Culture of doing the bare minimum, until the media freaks out, will never change.

In the US, its common for states and federal agencies to levy heavy fines for anyone caught gouging during a natural disaster. Good Law.

I wonder how many A/C owners are taking advantage of the deal, only to leave their planes there to get damaged!

Knowing these flight were already booked close to full, capping out the last remaining seat or two per flight at 99$ Is a great PR move. Don't think for a second jetblue is losing money in this.
