Seat Assignments

JetBlue is pleased to offer travel agents and their customers the ability to assign a specific seat using the Interactive Seat Map and Pre Reserved Seat functionality offered by the GDS. Contact your GDS help desk if you need information on how to use this functionality. JetBlue allows seat assignments on all flights through the end of our schedule.

Even More® Space seats

At this time Even More® Space seats can only be booked and paid for directly with JetBlue by visiting or by calling Reservations at 1-800-JETBLUE. This transaction is separate from the travel agency issued ticket and the funds for this transaction will not be settled through ARC or BSP processes.

In the event of any changes to the customer's flight plans, changes to Even More® Space seats must be completed directly with JetBlue. Customers may also upgrade to an Even More® Space seat at the time of check-in either online, at a kiosk or with a JetBlue Customer Service agent at the airport.

Extra Seat Request

An extra seat can be purchased for customers needing additional seating room:

  • Follow the normal booking instructions but make the reservation for one extra person
  • Book the first seat with the traveler's name, i.e. SMITH/ROBERT
  • Book the second seat with your traveler's last name and 'EXST' as the first name, i.e. SMITH/EXST
  • Include the following SSR message in the record: SSR EXST B6 NN1 JFKMCO0031Y31JUL-1SMITH/ROBERT.OVERSIZED
  • Select adjoining seat assignments in the GDS or on

When you purchase an extra seat, both seats must be booked in the same fare option. The fare option selected will determine your baggage allowance. The carry-on baggage allowance remains the same per person.

Length of seatbelts

Our seatbelts are 45 inches in length and customers can request 25 inch extensions onboard the aircraft.
