Jet Blue check in

What are the ways you can check in a Jet Blue flight on the day of the flight? Can you do it on line and print a boarding pass at home? Thankyou.

Yes. Online check-in is available, quick and painless:

They also have self-serve kiosks at the airport. Which airport are you leaving out of? With my home airport (LGB), curb to gate is usually about four minutes.

Jet Blue is amazing..I just got an email form my TA...Just recently implemented, when you change your reservation for another flight on the same day, it will only cost you $25.Previously,it was $30 PLUS any fare difference.Change your flight to another day, well same old rules, change fee plus fare difference.

Thanks for the feedback fellas. I will be going to LGB, first time. First time on Jet Blue also.

How is the traffic from LGB on a Monday afternoon at 4 pm going to Seal Beach?

How about the Mahe' restaurant? Know anything about Vittorios restaurant on Warner?

We are excited about this trip. We are travelling Jet Blue because we are disgusted with America West since it joined the poor customer service of US Airways.

And all my life I have wanted to visit Surf City USA! Yeah!

Thanks

Where in Seal Beach? Traffic on the main highway-- I-405-- will be heavy, but moving, after 4 PM on a Monday.

If it's on the coast, don't bother getting on the 405. Out of LGB, take Lakewood south to the Traffic Circle (its terminus); follow the signs to Pacific Coast Highway (CA-1) south and take PCH to Seal Beach.

I don't know either of those restaurants, but I've certainly driven by Mahé countless times. I found Vittorio's website, and it looks like a hoot. I think you'll have a great time!

I agree that jetBlue is amazing. Get a seat in an exit row, if you can, or behind the exit rows. The back half of the plane has 34" seat pitch.\

The line at LGB can be as short as 4 minutes, but it line can get long at times.

I live in Seal Beach and go to Mahe' for sushi. They have all you can eat sushi on Mon- Wed- Fri all night (maybe not all night on Fri, am not sure). On the other days of the week they have all you can eat sushi from 5PM to 6PM. The special sushi roll that they make on Wednesday's has no name, but it is great. The salmon sushi in this area is outstanding. I had a regular non-sushi meal there once and it was excellent, but I'm hooked on their sushi now. Still, while munching on sushi you get to watch the kitchen prepare all the dishes and I can tell you that it all looks and smells wonderful so I think there is very little chance that you would be disappointed there. Mahe has sushi but it is not a Japanese restaraunt.

I agree with rjw that the best way from LGB to SB would be to go down Lakewood Blvd to the circle where you will follow the PCH route 1 South signs. Follow PCH for a couple of miles and it goes over some water at the marina and you'll see the welcome to Seal Beach sign. After 3 lights you will see Mahe on the right, on PCH.

Thanks for the help guys. We have never been to southern California and we are really looking forward to it.

I am too old to start surfing but I want to see it! I want to eat some of that California cusine I hear some much about. Thanks!

Maybe Alamo can set me up with a 1930 Ford woody for my stay!

This evening I confirmed that Friday is not an all you can eat sushi night at Mahe. I checked the regular menu and it is a seafood restaraunt (I guess you can tell that by the big fish on the sign outside) but has three or four meat entrees and one or two pasta dishes.

After dinner ask the staff at Mahe for directions to the Seal Beach pier. Come on down and park on Main Street and check out the shops. Take a stroll out to the end of the pier and have dessert at Ruby's Diner (at the end of the pier). Surf City (i.e. the much bigger Huntington Beach) can wait.

Unfamiliar with JetBlue procedures. Can you see available seats before booking? When are seat assignments made available?

(And isomika, give it up -- you're outted)

Good, he/she's gone -- now my post makes no sense, but that's ok. Worth it to get rid of spammeister.

MorganRey, you might like making a stop at a Woody's Diner (the woody wagon is in it's retro Cal coast theme). There is one is SB on Main St and another in HB.

soccr, I am pretty sure that you have to buy the ticket before choosing seats. If you purchase the ticket online then you can choose your seats at that time. You can also check seat availability and change your seat when you go online to print out your boarding passes. Booking online at jetblue.com gives you a $5 discount and double true blue points.

You can choose your seats online when booking your tickets or at any point afterward. Just take your confirmation number to the airport and you can get your boarding pass at a self-service kiosk. Then you take your bags to a drop-off counter.

I agree about getting emergency row seats. We flew JetBlue from Burlington to JFK and had emergency row both times. There was so much leg room!

Another reco for a great restaurant in Seal Beach: Walt's Wharf, 201 Main St. in downtown SB:

http://www.waltswharf.com/

Their caramelized salmon is legendary (but always ask if it's wild or farm-raised-- wild is always better). Just about everything I've had there is superb, and it's wildly popular with locals from SB and neighboring Long Beach and Sunset Beach. Full bar, by the way.

Can an old guy swim at Sunset Beach or are the waves too big? I have seen photos of the waves at Huntington Beach and they seem to wild for us to get our toes wet.

Great restaurant tips coming in here!

Any locals know anything about Capone's Cucina, 19688 Beach Blvd, Huntington Beach?

Truth be told, I've never really gone to Huntington for haute cuisine-- or any cuisine, for that matter. It's not really what it's known for. If you're willing to drive a few miles, I can recommend some great places in the neighboring cities of Long Beach (Sonny Bono's oldest daughter runs a Northern Italian specialist called Christy's that is seriously fantastic) and Los Alamitos (Shenandoah at the Arbor serves Southern delicacies).

Sunset Beach's waves are somewhat calmer than Huntington's. Seal Beach's are calmer as well. You go to Huntington Beach to surf-- and the surfing can be spectacular there.

Another question: Where are you getting these restaurant recommendations? They're decidedly off the radar of the most used restaurant rating websites, and doing a quick Chowhound search, Mahé comes up as being rather mediocre. Seems a shame to come this far and not dine well.

Walt's Wharf certainly is a nice restaurant, probably the best in old town Seal Beach (i.e. the part of SB west of PCH). Mahe has good food at reasonable prices. Given that I also recommended Ruby's Diner you must consider that if you want haute cuisine then you don't want my opinion!

Ruby's on the Pier is a great place to have lunch. No question. Not haute cuisine by any stretch, but who needs that all the time?
