JetBlue Airways

JetBlue is a relatively new player on the air travel scene. In a little over a decade they have earned a great reputation as an affordable customer-centered airline. They serve some 70 cities across the United States, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Latin America. Their low prices and first-rate customer service have made JetBlue the choice of leisure and business travelers alike.

At the moment they will only accept small dogs and cats in the cabin of the aircraft and will not accept animals as cargo freight or as checked baggage. JetBlue reminds anyone travelling with their animal companions that a pet in a carrier will count as one personal carry-on item.
