Family Travel With JetBlue Family Pooling

A few years ago I took my husband and Lucia to meet my mother’s (huge) family in Medellin, Colombia.  It was an amazing experience to be surrounded by loving family that I’ve lived so far away from for my entire life.  Although we hoped to return again soon, we haven’t been back since.

JetBlue just made that trip to Colombia (or anywhere else) much easier with the introduction of their new “Family Pooling” feature for their TrueBlue rewards program members.  With “Family Pooling”, up to seven people (two adults and five children) can actually pool their miles into one single account.  JetBlue is the first airline to offer this consolidation of points feature among “family” (defined as a group of people united by a common affiliation), allowing members to accumulate and redeem points easier and faster.

I had the chance to meet with the JetBlue team at their headquarters in Long Island City last week.  As the daughter of a mechanical engineer (my father designed airplane engines), I found the behind the scenes walk through incredibly interesting.  I grew up attending air shows and last week I had the opportunity to learn about the intricate details that go into operating an airline. I also learned that the “Family Pooling” program was implemented as a response to customer feedback.  It quickly became clear that JetBlue wanted a sound system for members to easily redeem their points.

My family is incredibly excited about JetBlue’s Family Pooling (no transfer fees, no expiration dates, no blackout dates and no wasted miles!).  To learn more about program details visit the JetBlue website.

I received TrueBlue miles during my visit to JetBlue HQ, however, all opinions are strictly my own.
