On Wednesday, JetBlue Airways made announcements that it is going to charge certain company customers for the first checked bag that they will be bringing. This is in response to the pressure coming from analysts who are criticizing the airline regarding not putting additional fees, just like what other carriers did.
The airline based in New York also stated that it is going to have more seats added to Airbus A320 plane fleet, while it maintains a leg room for its passengers.
The steps taken reflect how the rising airline revenue chunks come from the fees other than the price of the fare, as well as having more people squeezed into places by letting them use seats having thinner backs. Specifically, they are showing the new techniques have reached JetBlue ever since it made an announcement two months earlier that Robin Hayes, the president of the company, is going to be the chief executive effective February. Hayes, on the other hand, made a promise to have the culture of the airline preserved.
During a presentation on Wednesday addressed to investors, JetBlue had its three brand new fare families, which include a discount class that doesn’t come with a checked bag for free.
