You can indicate how many bags you're bringing and pay the applicable fees during the check-in process within 24 hours of your flight's departure. We recommend checking in online or at one of our airport kiosks, although there is no difference in fees whether checking in online, at a kiosk or at the check-in counter.
If you check in online, just drop your bags at the bag drop location at the airport where a crewmember will scan your boarding document to see your payment, verify the bag count and weight, and print your bag tag(s). Overweight and oversized fees may apply, so be sure to pack in accordance with our checked baggage requirements by visiting jetblue.com/baggage.
