We flew JetBlue earlier this month with a ski bag.  No changes in their policies, and no hassles – we always load the ski bag with two pairs of skis, plus clothing, fanny pack, skins, etc.

hmmm, i'm not sure if they've changed that since december or not. at any rate, my girlfriend and I flew jet blue in early december with a ski bag w/ two pairs of skis in it, and another bag and didn't pay anything extra. dunno if we just slipped through the cracks or not...

Wes,

It's been a couple years since I flew JetBlue with skis, but I've done
it a number of times and they've never had a problem with me packing
my ski bag with clothes/gear.
