JetBlue has one elite status level called Mosiac, which gets you two free checked bags, waived change and cancellation fees, and free alcoholic drinks.
However, unlike most airline elite status programs, JetBlue Mosaic members do not have access to free upgrades to Mint lie-flat business class seats.
How to Earn JetBlue Mosaic
JetBlue reduced the requirements to earn Mosaic elite status in 2021.
You now have four options to earn Mosaic status:
- Earn 7,500 Mosaic Qualifying points (vs. the usual 15,000 points)
- Earn 6,000 Mosaic Qualifying points AND fly 15 segments (vs. the usual 12,000 points and 30 segments)
- Spend $50,000 in a calendar year on the Barclays JetBlue Plus or JetBlue Business credit card.
- Spend $30,000 in a calendar year on the Barclays JetBlue Plus or JetBlue Business credit card AND earn 4,000 Mosaic Qualifying points.
Special 2021 Mosaic Benefits
JetBlue introduced new temporary elite benefits to encourage Mosaic members to stay loyal, including unlimited Companion Passes, upgrades to Even More Seats, and special bonuses for flying.
Mosaic members can add a free additional passenger to reservations between January 1, 2021, to May 31, 2021.
This promotion does not apply to tickets redeemed with TrueBlue points or Cash + Points redemptions.
But it does apply to flights in JetBlue Mint, which can be an amazing deal if you can grab a cheap Mint flight.
To book your companion, you will need to call the JetBlue Mosaic customer service line at 1-877-JET-TRUE (538-8783).
Free Same-Day Even More Seats
Mosaic members can get a free same-day upgrade to “Even More” seats in 2021 by requesting it when you arrive at the airport.
JetBlue introduced several bonuses and perks for when reaching certain milestones:
- 10,000 Mosaic Qualifying points – 10,000 bonus points
- 20,000 Mosaic Qualifying points – Gift Mosaic status to anyone of your choosing (valid through 2022)
- 30,000 Mosaic Qualifying points – Free roundtrip flight certificate (valid for one year)
JetBlue Mosaic Benefits
JetBlue Mosaic comes with some nice benefits, including extra points, free checked bags, waived change fees, and free alcoholic drinks.
Three Extra Points Per Dollar
Mosaic members earn an extra 3 points per dollar on JetBlue flights.
Upon qualifying for Mosaic status, you will receive 15,000 TrueBlue points.
These bonus points are not applicable if you earned status via JetBlue credit cards.
Two Free Checked Bags
Mosaic members receive two free checked bags for you and your travel companions on the same reservation.
The normal fee to check bags is $35 for the first bag and $45 for the second bag, so this benefit can save up to $160 per person for a round-trip flight.
Waived Change and Cancellation Fees
Mosaic members can change or cancel flights without a fee, which is normally up to $200.
This benefit does not apply to Blue Basic (Basic Economy) tickets, which cannot be changed or canceled.
Free Alcoholic Beverages
Mosaic members board early in the second group in the boarding process.
The JetBlue boarding process is:
- Pre-Boarding for customers with disabilities
- Mosaic and Mint® customers
- Even More® Space customers (Group A)
- Courtesy Boarding for active military personnel and customers traveling with small children
- Group B
- Group C
- Group D
- Group E
- All remaining customers
Discounted Upgrades to Even More Space
Mosaic members don’t get free upgrades to “Even More Space” economy seats, unlike most other elite programs.
But Mosaic members can use TrueBlue points to upgrade to “Even More Space” seats at a rate of 2.5 cents per point.
For example, a $96 upgrade would cost 4,000 points.
Special Customer Service Line
Elite members get the fastest access to customer service representatives by calling the Mosaic elite phone number at 1-877-538-8783.
JetBlue Status Match
JetBlue is currently not offering elite status matches. The last status match promotion was in 2017, so it would be great if it returned.
The following elite status levels qualified for Mosaic status for the last promotion:
JetBlue Mosaic is not one of my favorite airline elite programs because there is no way to upgrade to Mint business class.
But it is very nice that JetBlue introduced new temporary benefits for 2021. Hopefully, these benefits stick around for 2022.
