allot of availability over the next couple days.

Its nice to see an airline take a step in the right direction
This thread was made about 24 hours after Lucky first reported about and was all over the news, so why would there be anything available now?

THere wasn't much available then either.

Would they have announced this on Sunday I would've given them credit...

Doesn't JetBlue have a price guarante for 14 days? So if you previously paid more, you can at least call and get an adjustment?

Last Thursday, B6 sent me an email and left me a voice-message that my flight the next day from FLL-BUF was cancelled. It was only at 3:00 AM on Friday (4 hours before departure) that they emailed to say that the prior voicemail and email were left in error. Thankfully I had a backup flight and had already gotten out of Florida on AA (and did in fact cancel the B6 flight myself as soon as I landed safely in MCI at 2:30 AM), but could you imagine the anguish this would have caused someone desperate to get out before they shut the airports down?

Do you think it was wrong of travel agents to grab these $99 seats and flip them to passengers who had to get out for $300-400+?

Yeah, I'm gonna call BS on that one. Sounds exactly like something you'd hear from a friend who heard it from a friend who overheard it on the subway.
