(NBC) – JetBlue is getting rid of change fees on most fares, following similar moves by other major US airlines.
But the announcement comes with a major catch, passengers in basic economy won’t be allowed to bring a carry-on bag.
The new restriction goes into effect for flights starting July 20 for tickets bought after Feb. 25.
People flying in “Blue Basic” can still bring a small personal item that can fit under the seat.
Anything else must be checked with a fee of $35 for the first bag and $45 for the second.
