A reader wrote into Consumerist because he recently booked a flight on JetBlue, only to discover when attempting to check in at the airport that he’d somehow booked the return flight for a full month later than it should have been.
When he investigated what had happened, he realized that he’d been hasty when picking the dates on the JetBlue website and not noticed that the pop-up calendar for the return flight had been advanced a month from the calendar he’d been shown for booking the departing flight.
While the reader admits to making the mistake, he believes some of the blame must be placed on the JetBlue site. So he’s made the following video to demonstrate just how easy it is to make the same mistake. Have a look and tell us if you think you might have made this error.
