JetBlue is running another “All You Can Jet” pass for travel from Sept 7-Oct 6. There are two types

AYCJ-7: $699* for 30 days of unlimited travel Sold out
AYCJ-5: $499* for 30 days of unlimited travel (excludes Fridays and Sundays)

If interested, sign up for their TrueBlue frequent flyer program and then purchase the pass here.

Pros-
1) No blackout/capacity controls- if a seat is available for sale, its available for use with the pass.

Cons-
1) High fees/taxes per flight. Trips to the Caribbean will still cost you over $100, in addition to the pass price.
2) The majority of the time the pass is valid is during the work week. This may not be useful for most 9-5ers.

Paul Brady at Conde Nast Traveler did a great overview on the economics of the pass. Read here before purchasing.
