One of the best airlines when it comes to in-flight entertainment would be JetBlue. They offer over 100 channels of Direct TV on some flights. Another grand advantage to some of the leading airlines is that your first bag is checked free. They offer a loyalty rewards program where you can earn TrueBlue points. You can do this by earning badges, purchases through their online mall, and frequent flying. The way to really get a bonus is to get their credit card for personal or business for over 20,000 points. JetBlue may be changing credit card issuers from American Express soon but the current offer is 20,000 TrueBlue points after $1,000 spend within 3 months with no annual fee for the first year.
The 20,000 TrueBlue points you can then redeem for 1-way award flights starting at 5,000 points and round-trip award flights starting at 10,000 points. You’ll also get a $50 statement credit each year that you purchase a JetBlue Getaways vacation package with your card.
You’ll earn up to 8 TrueBlue points per $1 spent on JetBlue flights and Getaways vacation packages on JetBlue.com, which is 2 TrueBlue points per $1 spent on the card plus the 6 TrueBlue points that you get directly from JetBlue.
All other purchases get 1 TrueBlue point per $1 spent.
JetBlue card members can also get a statement credit for 50% off select in-flight purchases of movies, meals, and alcoholic beverages with your card. After the first year you will then have a $40 annual fee.
JetBlue TrueBlue Badges To Gain More TrueBlue Points
The JetBlue TrueBlue Badges program allows you to get bonus TrueBlue points when you complete activities. Each time that you earn a new TrueBlue Badge for participating activities, you’ll receive bonus points toward your next reward flight. You can earn Badges for flights, for partner activities with Hertz, Hilton, ShopTrue, and for connecting your Facebook and Twitter accounts.

JetBlue starts charging for all checked bags
Southwest Airlines is now the only option for travelers seeking to fly with a major U.S. carrier without paying extra for checked baggage, as JetBlue says it will begin charging for the first checked piece of luggage. Fliers who booked flights before June 30, 2015 will still check a suitcase for free, but those booking last-minute summer vacations and other trips on or after that day must pay up to $25 for their first checked bag.
