As of Jan 2015: Update on Flight Deck and Cabin Jumpseat Listing via MyIDTravel (for OALs) All other airline (OAL) personnel with a reciprocal Flight Deck and Cabin jumpseat agreement with JetBlue can list themselves via myIDTravel. If the OAL personnel comes to the airport (ticket counter, gate, or JustAsk desk) to list, please list them and advise they can do so via myIDTravel going forward.
