wants to make sure you won't be hesitant about booking a flight -- the company will refund your ticket price if you get laid off.

The JetBlue Promise Program will offer a full refund to anyone who experiences "involuntary" full-time job loss prior to his or her trip.

"JetBlue is committed to helping customers book stress-free travel plans, and based on their feedback we made adjustments to our refund policy to allow them to book with confidence," said Robin Hayes, executive vice president and chief commercial officer for JetBlue Airways. "This price promise allows them to book early and take advantage of our low fares without worrying they will lose their money if they need to cancel their trip due to job loss."

Customers who book flights between Feb. 1 and June 1, 2009, and lose their job on or after Feb. 17 may be eligible for The JetBlue Promise Program. Customers must notify JetBlue and request a full refund at least 14 days prior to the first date of travel. The customer who purchased the flight and is listed as a traveler on the itinerary can request a refund for up to nine customers traveling on one reservation.

The program is valid for bookings originating in the U.S. only and excludes group bookings. More information can be found
