This is a proof that a low-cost airline can give an excellent service and steady profits.
Finally, JetBlue seeks to inspire humanity through innovations and have long term relationships with its customers which makes sense when considering JetBlue´s Twitter account to keep in touch with their customers as well as knowing them more to provide them a better service every time.

JetBlue airways, was founded in February 1999 by David Neeleman. Its first name was “NewAir”, the idea of this company started with some employees of the Southwest Airlines and what they were trying to do was to offer low-cost flights while the customer received all the luxuries that were usually more expensive such as TV on every seat and satellite radio.
A fact that is necessary to highlight their success since the beginning is that on September of the same year, they found out that they were already 75 take-offs and landings at John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) which is one of the most important and crowded airport.
In February 11, 2000, the company launched operations with its inaugural flight between JFK and Fort Lauderdale, FL. Since that date, JetBlue started adding new routes in the United States to enrich their service. By December of the same year, JetBlue reached one million customers and reported $100 millions in flow revenue.

On June 2010 JetBlue began selling snack boxes on flights over 3 hours 45 minutes for six dollars. In 2012 JetBlue ranked 'Highest in Customer Satisfaction among Low Cost Carriers in North America' by J.D.

In addition, part of JetBlue´s success is because they, among other things, know that a strong organizational culture is far better than any technology and it’s something that competition cannot imitate or copy. Having a strong organizational culture is what makes employees to serve customers gently as well as the way they communicate and talk about the company they care to the customers, because when employees love their work, they...
