They extended their Schedule June 10th and then July 15th.. My Best guess sometime around August 19th
Go to the Jet Blue Facebook page and MESSAGE them..Ask them when and if they know ,they will tell you

I emailed them a couple of days ago to see if they knew when they would be expanding throughout next May.
Response was prompt, but they don't know yet.
Just have to keep "an eye on" the home page and hope they post it there in advance.
Actually I'll need May and June as we are looking to arrive on May 25 and depart on June 1st.

Jet Blue no longer posts the Information on their Website.They use to do it,but since they did an upgrade to their page,they said they will NO LONGER POST THAT INFO..So, we have to resort to going to their Facebook Page and ask them in a Message when and if they know they will message you..I use to get an e-mail from them a few days before..Now I get an e-mail about 4 hours after they open the schedule.That's ok..BUT I have missed out on a cheaper fare because of that..So, I like to know the exact time!

Thanks for the update, Alexa.
I don't (and won't) go on Facebook, or any other "social" site (except the Aruba BB); so I guess I will be in the same situation as you are.
I thought I saw on their homepage last time that they posted the date when "we" could book a combined reservation (flight and hotel), but the flight only schedule date did not appear. Like you said, it showed up about 4 hours after they started taking their combined vacation reservations.
That's a "bummer" for us folks who like to reserve early for flights only. :x
Hope they reconsider.

I go on Facebook and I belong to many Facebook Aruba groups.We all share information and that's how many of them find out about Jet Blue's schedule and they POST IT for ALL TO SEE....The Aruba groups are like this group,but if you post a question,you get an answer within seconds...Sometimes it can get crazy and people argue with each other..BUT for the most part it's a very FRIENDLY and INFORMATIVE GROUP!

Anybody receive any information about Jet Blue opening up the flight schedule for May/June 2019?
I don't use Facebook, or any other social website, as someone earlier mentioned; so I can't follow them that way.
Was hoping somebody who did that would also post on this BB as well.
Think I'm getting a little "antsy" about booking? :lol:
We want to take our son and daughter-in-law with us for their first time, and they live in Manhattan, Kansas. So, I'm trying to work in two different flight schedules for us and them and would like to get it done as soon as possible.

Nothing yet..I am amazed that they haven't done it yet..I realize that you are ,I guess opposed to Facebook..BUT it's the way of the world ,right now and the way to GET THE INFO YOU WANT.. I'm gathering that many people on this Board are like you too...Like i've said before,Jet Blue use to put the Info on their Website weeks before they were going to Release the Schedule..BUT for some reason they have decided not to do this anymore..So, they are forcing people to go to Facebook and ask them the questions about it. They will answer you if they know.It seems right now they do not know yet.

Thanks, Alexa. That is what they told me about a month ago.
I, also, thought it would be available about now.
Oh well, maybe another week. :roll:

I, too, like to book my flights as early as possible.
Since JB stopped posting their 'opening' dates I simply make a quick visit into their website three or four or more times a day and see if their calendar has been advanced. Now, you might say that it would be cumbersome or a waste to do that but I'm on one of my computers several times a day and it only takes a few seconds to run a quick ticket search to learn their opening date.
Past history shows that JB usually releases their flights on a Sunday at noon but who's to say if they might surprise someday, eh?
It's not difficult. I'm on my own schedule without having to parse thru all the 'favorite this' or favorite that' Facebook posts.
So, to me, I'll hit my dates not too much after JB releases them with very little effort.
That is that!

When booking our Feb/March dates I discovered that when JB says that they were opening the schedule at 2:00 PM, it was Atlantic Time, not Eastern Time. I was able to book at 1:05 PM ET.

Thanks, Mark.
Good to know when booking when we are off daylight savings time.
