Flying cross-country, JetBlue or Virgin America?

Jump to last reply

Looking at nonstop flights between San Francisco and Boston.

Virgin America is a tad cheaper, but when I add in the checked luggage fees (JetBlue has none), the price is pretty much exactly the same.

Both airlines have convenient departure/arrival times for me.

Both operates A320.

My understanding is that JetBlue's seats have slightly better pitch (34")? vs Virgin America (32')? Am I correct?

Also, I think both have individual entertainment unit with VOD? And food for purchase on board?

Since everything is pretty much a wash; should I pick JebBlue b/c of the better seat pitch? Or is there something special about Virgin America that I have overlooked?

I haven't flown with either airlines before, and will unlikely to do so on a regular basis, so I'm not even considering joining their FF programs.
