JetBlue has been the sole commercial airline serving Worcester Regional Airport in Massachusetts with flights to New York JFK, Orlando, and Fort Lauderdale though American Airlines will be starting Philadelphia service in October.
On one of JetBlue’s Florida – Worcestor flights on Thursday night a 3 year old French bulldog in the cabin started having breathing problems. Its tongue turned blue. JetBlue crew assisted with an oxygen mask.

Darcy was treated for hypoxia – a lack of oxygen in the body – by her owner who held the oxygen mask over the dog’s face.
“I placed the mask over her face, and within a few minutes she became alert and after a short time she didn’t want the mask,” Michele said, ABC News reported. “I believe [crew members] Renaud and Diane
saved a life, some may reduce the value of the life because Darcy is a canine. I do not.”
JetBlue proudly proclaimed “We all want to make sure everyone has a safe and comfortable fight, including those with four legs.”
