An irregular operation (IROP) exists anytime a flight fails for any reason to operate on schedule, is cancelled, or has a change of equipment which cannot accommodate all confirmed customers who present themselves for check-in. To compensate for customer inconvenience as a result of the irregular operations JetBlue will attempt to reroute the customer on the next available flight(s) and revalidate the ticket.

JetBlue uses waiver codes to allow travel agents to self-serve during irregular operations, reducing the need to call Reservations. For weather related events, up to date and past dated waiver code information along with affected flights/market, information can be found here.

Ticket changes during an IROP

In the event of a severe irregular operation (IROP) a waiver code may be provided in the Travel Alert notices on www.jetblue.com. Changes can be made by an agency due to the IROP without penalty or administrative service charges for travel through the date specified in the Travel Alert section only if the specific waiver code is used per the documentation requirements below.

Required Documentation:

Failure to apply the proper documentation may result in a debit memo

Refunds during an IROP

If a customer's JetBlue flight is cancelled due to irregular operations such as weather, and no other alternate flights are acceptable, travel agents can refund any unused ticket(s) through normal ARC/BSP processing provided that an event waiver has been issued via the Travel Alerts on www.jetblue.com, and the waiver code is used per the documentation requirements below.
