All you can Jet Blue

I recently became intrigued with the Jet Blue Pass that allows thirty days of travel for $699 or $ 499( with no week end travel ). Has anyone looked at this ?. I think it would be a fun challenge to see how many places you could visit . I would allow a few days each stop .JetBlue | All You Can Jet

The Chicago Tribune travel editor recently used the pass: JetBlue pass: Flying a month with JetBlue pass - chicagotribune.com

Sounds like a great deal!

It is very hard to obtain one of the passes. Each year they sell out in minutes and they never release the dates ahead of time. It is a neat idea, but hard to get in!

A friend did this last year (during a long stint of unemployment). Mostly couch surfing and bumming rides from friends.

She seemed to have a blast. I want to say she "visited" 17 different cities. Visit being defined as some stays only lasting 4 hours, others a few days. She used it to visit a few places she had not been to yet, and also to interview for some jobs across the nation, to attend a national trade convention for her profession (and interview while there) and also to meet with grad school friends that are now spread out all over the country. For the price of two domestic plane tix, it was a really good deal for her.

All that flying. Sounds like a secret TSA plot to increase the cancer incidence in Americans. Hmm...the TSA must be terrorists!

A past co-worker/friend of mine also worked full time for an airline.
He had free flying benefits so would hop on a flight just to eat somewhere nice in another State.
Then either fly back the same night or not depending on his work schedule.
He took awesome extended vacations too at times.

It has expired for now but they may bring it back and If I could get tickets I think it would be fun .
