JetBlue has partnered with ISIC to offer full-time students an 11% discount on all of their flights.
ISIS is a non-profit organization that issues student identity cards worldwide. Individuals must purchase an ISIC identity card to be eligible for the discount. The annual cost of the card is $22. ISIC's website lists the following eligibility requirements:
Full-time students age 12 & over currently enrolled for the academic year 2008-2009 at an accredited institution and matriculating towards a diploma or a degree. (Continuing education and language school students are not eligible).
You will need either a photocopy of school ID showing validity for 2008-2009 or a photocopy of your transcript/report card/tuition bill receipt for 2008-2009 academic year.
This can be a great deal for students and for parents traveling with kids who meet the eligibility requirements. The $22 ISIC membership can easily pay for itself in one or two trips on JetBlue. Additionally, the card offers other discounts such as 15% off on Amtrak, 10% on Target.com purchases and many others. See ISIC's website for additional information.

With the recent drop in the price of oil, some European airlines have begun to cut those fuel surcharges that help push the price of an airline ticket into the stratosphere. British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Lufthansa and Air France/KLM have all reduced their surcharges on passenger tickets, while other foreign and domestic carriers, including Northwest, have cut their fuel charges on air cargo.

Minneapolis based Sun Country Airlines, fighting to survive a cash crunch, has warned its employees to prepare for the possibility of major layoffs, or a shutdown of the airline, as early as Dec. 1.
SunCountry is struggling to survive until the heavy winter travel season when it expects to turn a profit, but in the meantime they are taking drastic actions, including a 50 percent pay deferral for employees to improve their cash position.
SunCountry was looking for a short-term loan from its owner, Tom Petters, to address the cash shortage issue but Petters, the airline's majority shareholder, resigned as CEO of Petters Group Worldwide Monday because he is the target of a major federal fraud investigation. While this is unrelated to SunCountry's business, it looks like Mr. Petters has his hands full with "other matters", so SunCountry will have to see financing elsewhere, which is none too easy in the credit crunch the country is experiencing currently.
Will SunCountry ultimately survive? It's still too early to tell, but clearly this is an ominous sign. One thing is for sure... They certainly won't be the last airline to run into trouble in this difficult economy.
