SWOT Analysis Strengths Extra Space- JetBlue has many strengths including more comfortable seating. They offer seating with more leg room some seats have 34 inches between the seats, while taller men and women who need the extra leg room can have seats with 38 inches. This is an extra feature that JetBlue offers to their customers. Advanced Technology and Entertainment-They also offer exciting entertainment. The entertainment includes XM Radio which includes over 100 channels at every seat and it is free. Also there is a TV at every seat with at least 36 Direct TV channels. JetBlue also offers movies and free wireless internet. Unique Services in the Airline Industry-When it comes to customer service JetBlue goes above and beyond other major airlines. They offer free unlimited snacks to everyone on the plane, and they are snacks that are name brand. For example, they offer Dunkin Donuts coffee and snacks. Newer Fleet compared to others- JetBlue also commands a newer fleet compared to the older more established low-cost airlines. This is an advantage for them because maintaining a newer fleet is less expensive than maintaining an older one. Weaknesses Gradual Global and Domestic Expansion-Another weakness is that JetBlue continues to expand, but not at a rapid rate. They only offer flights to 61 cities in

the United States and some other countries. Global expansion is also taking place, but at a much slower rate. This is a disadvantage because direct flights save people time and money. Negative Press- Negative press that JetBlue has received lately is also a weakness. In May of 2010, a JetBlue pilot threatened to harm himself just hours prior to takeoff. In August of 2010, flight attendant Steven Slater argued with a passenger, grabbed a beer from the plane, and slid down the emergency exit. In February 2007, passengers on JetBlue 751 were stranded for 8 hours on the tarmac

External Factor Evaluation(LIFE EFE) Opportunities: Increasing demand for air travel. Untapped international market. All other airlines that have much higher fares. Other airlines who have been hurting since 9-11 and heading for Chapter Increasing use of the Internet. Potential use of luggage-tracking technology Threats: Many airlines including JetBlue face union labor contracts. Unions can strike whenever no agreements are made. Fuel costs are high and are a HUGE part of airline expenses. Breakeven load factor is rising. Higher security required at airports is causing higher fees on tickets and more customer dissatisfaction.


Recommendations JetBlue should implement these strategies in three stages. - Introductory Phase Implement new advertising campaigns to get JetBlues name known. - Middle Phase Start the travel website to help attract new people to JetBlue, get them to fly, and build a reputation. - End Phase Start flying internationally. Once customers know JetBlue and JetBlue gains a reputation for high quality and low prices, people will want to fly them no matter where they go.
