How to Request a JetBlue Same-Day Switch or Standby Flight?

Travel plans change unexpectedly, but they should not hinder your planned trips to the point of cancellation. If you have a few hours glitch in your planned flight schedule with JetBlue, you can switch it a bit to fit your current situation. Jetblue offers a same-day flight change and standby option to allow you to switch your flights and go on with your plans as you can.

If you are experiencing a situation where you have to push your flight timings a bit, you can do so under the JetBlue same-day change option. For more details, check out the details in the subsections below.

What are the Different JetBlue Same-Day Change Options?

Jetblue offers its customers two types of options to adjust their schedule on the day of departure: Same-day Switch and Standby. Both these options have different rules and regulations. Here are the details!

JetBlue Same-Day Switch

The airline allows customers to make a same-day switch to a new flight on the day of departure from the original flight. In simple words, you can choose a new JetBlue flight for a small $75 fee on the day of departure. However, you must follow the rules and regulations mentioned below to get your desired flight. Here are the details:

  • Any fare can be switched to a new flight as long as seats are available.
  • You can only choose a new flight on the day of travel starting at midnight within your departure flight’s time zone.
  • You can not change your cities, but if applicable, you can choose a nearby airport instead of the original booking.
  • There is no same-day switch fee for refundable fares.
  • Bookings made with TrueBlue are also eligible for the same-day switch.
  • You can choose to travel on an earlier or later flight on the day of departure of your original flight.
  • JetBlue Mosaic customers do not need to pay the same-day switch fee and can even choose to change flights 24 hours before the scheduled departure.

For any changes to interline bookings on the same day, contact the JetBlue customer service team for assistance.

JetBlue Standby

A standby change on JetBlue is not guaranteed/ confirmed, but you can choose this option if you can not find a new flight option on the same day to confirm. The eligibility depends on your fare type and seat availability, as well as standby priority. Here are some of the rules that determine your further process:

  • You must pay a $75 fee to Jetblue for all fares to list as Standby. Blue extra customers are excluded.
  • JetBlue gives you a refund if your flight isn’t confirmed.
  • To use this option, you must have a confirmed flight departing on the same day.
  • You must have a nonstop or connecting flight to travel between any two destinations which should not change in the new flight.
  • If you have multi-city bookings, you can choose to fly on standby if all of them are on the same day.
  • Mint customers can also choose standby, but their Mint seats are not guaranteed and depend on availability only.
  • A single person from your reservation can be present at the airport to put you on the standby list.
  • Mosaic customers can do standby for free.
  • Your Even More Space or Core seat fee will be forfeited if you choose to fly on standby, and you won’t get any refund.

If all of these rules are upheld, you can easily change your flight tickets to a new flight earlier or later on the same day as departure. Contact JetBlue for details on the same and fly as per your needs. The airline will help you out with anything you require and make your travel arrangements hassle-free.
