Over at Gridskipper.com you'll find an interesting item about JetBlue. It says that the airline "has stopped taking customer calls -- if you ring JetBlue's toll-free number, an apologetic lady greeter says that they're not accepting new contacts due to high volume..." Read the whole post at Gridskipper.
Curious, I called JetBlue just now. I got through to a reservations agent within about eight minutes, which isn't too bad when compared with the hotlines run by other airlines. Perhaps the poor customer service earlier this morning was only a hiccup.

One possible lingering problem: JetBlue's website is posting the following message: "Due to an unusually high email volume, you may not receive a reply for 5 - 7 business days." Wow!
JetBlue's reservations agents are famous because they work out of their homes instead of call centers. Perhaps the airline's roughly 1,000 agents aren't enough to handle a crisis?
