Online Seat Selection

If there are not any seats available to assign when you book your reservation, it doesn't mean that you won't have a seat - it simply means the only seats left to assign must be assigned at the airport.

We do not overbook our flights; therefore, everyone who pays for a flight will be guaranteed a seat.

*** If you booked your reservation through a Travel Agent, you can book your seat online or by calling 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583) for assistance from our Customer Support Team.


Even More® Space

When you fly JetBlue you get to enjoy comfy seats with lots of legroom to stretch out, relax, and enjoy the award-winning JetBlue experience.

Now we've decided to give you even more.

Go from roomy to roomier with our Even More® Space seats, which include:

  • Extra legroom
  • Early boarding
  • Early access to overhead bins

Even More® Space is available for an extra charge which varies by route starting at $10 one-way, depending on the flight. To check the price on a particular flight, simply select an Even More® Space seat from the seat map during booking or during the check-in process.


Purchasing an Extra Seat

An extra seat may be purchased online or by calling our Reservations team at 1-800 JETBLUE (538-2583).  Please note, there is a $25 booking fee* associated with all reservations made over the phone, at the airport, or at a city ticket office. 

*Fees are assessed per person, NOT per seat. Customers will be charged the booking fee for the seat they occupy and will NOT be charged an additional booking fee for the Extra Seat(s)  

Or, if you would like to book online, click on this link: Book a Flight and follow the directions below to book your extra seat:

  • Follow the normal booking instructions but make the reservation for one extra person.
  • Book the first seat with your name; for example, SMITH/ROBERT.
  • Book the second seat with your last name and 'extra seat' as the first name; for example, SMITH/EXTRA SEAT.
  • Don't forget to complete the seat assignments.
Baggage allowance for extra seat: When you purchase an extra seat, you increase your checked baggage allowance with the extra seat. The carry-on baggage allowance remains the same per person.

Emergency Exit Row Requirements

Emergency doors are often heavy and awkward to lift, push, pull and maneuver when opening. For the safety of all customers, federal regulations require that the customer seated in an emergency exit row be able to assist the crew in the event of an emergency.

All customers sitting in the exit row must be willing and able to meet the following exit row requirements:

  • Must have sufficient mobility, strength or dexterity in both arms and hands, and both legs
  • Be 15 years of age or older and have the capacity to perform the listed duties without the assistance of an adult companion, parent, or other relative 
  • Be able to read and understand instructions related to emergency evacuations which are provided in printed, hand-written or graphic form and be able to understand oral commands given by a crewmember in the English language
  • Be able to see well enough to perform the listed duties without the assistance of visual aids. May wear contacts or eyeglasses
  • Be able to hear well enough to understand instructions shouted by crewmembers without assistance. May wear hearing aids
  • Be able to speak English well enough to give information verbally to other customers
  • Be free from the use of a walking assistive device (cane, walker, wheelchair, and/or crutches
  • Be free from a condition or responsibility which requires his/her care, such as a small child, or someone physically or mentally unable to care for him/herself, which might prevent him/her from performing any of the listed duties
  • Be free from the responsibilities required by the presence of a pet, service animal or emotional support animal
  • Be free from any condition that might cause him/her harm if he/she was to perform one or more of the listed duties

Airport customer service crewmembers will make the final decision in determining who will be seated in exit row seats, even when seats have been assigned prior to arrival at the airport.


Length of Seatbelts
Our seatbelts are 45 inches in length and you can request 25 inch extensions onboard the aircraft.

Seats on the Airbus and EMBRAER Aircraft

Your legs will thank you.
