JETBLUE AIRWAYS CORPORATION
EMPLOYEE STOCK PURCHASE PLAN
I. PURPOSE OF THE PLAN
This Employee Stock Purchase Plan is intended to promote the interests
of JetBlue Airways Corporation, a Delaware corporation, by providing eligible
employees with the opportunity to acquire a proprietary interest in the
Corporation through participation in a payroll deduction-based employee stock
purchase plan designed to qualify under Section 423 of the Code.
Capitalized terms herein shall have the meanings assigned to such
terms in the attached Appendix.
II. ADMINISTRATION OF THE PLAN
The Plan Administrator shall have full authority to interpret and
construe any provision of the Plan and to adopt such rules and regulations for
administering the Plan as it may deem necessary in order to comply with the
requirements of Code Section 423. Decisions of the Plan Administrator shall be
final and binding on all parties having an interest in the Plan.
III. STOCK SUBJECT TO PLAN
A. The stock purchasable under the Plan shall be shares of
authorized but unissued or reacquired Common Stock, including shares of Common
Stock purchased on the open market. The number of shares of Common Stock
initially reserved for issuance over the term of the Plan shall be limited to
B. The number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance under
the Plan shall automatically increase on the first trading day of January each
calendar year during the term of the Plan, beginning with calendar year 2003, by
an amount equal to three percent (3%) of the total number of shares of Common
Stock outstanding on the last trading day in December of the immediately
preceding calendar year, but in no event shall any such annual increase exceed
C. Should any change be made to the Common Stock by reason of any
stock split, stock dividend, recapitalization, combination of shares, exchange
of shares or other change affecting the outstanding Common Stock as a class
without the Corporation's receipt of consideration, appropriate adjustments
shall be made to (i) the maximum number and class of securities issuable under
the Plan, (ii) the maximum number and class of securities purchasable per
Participant on any one Purchase Date, (iii) the maximum number and class of
securities purchasable in total by all Participants on any one Purchase Date,
(iv) the maximum number
and/or class of securities by which the share reserve is to increase
automatically each calendar year pursuant to the provisions of Section III.B of
this Article One and (v) the number and class of securities and the price per
share in effect under each outstanding purchase right in order to prevent the
dilution or enlargement of benefits thereunder.
IV. OFFERING PERIODS
A. Shares of Common Stock shall be offered for purchase under the
Plan through a series of overlapping offering periods until such time as (i) the
maximum number of shares of Common Stock available for issuance under the Plan
shall have been purchased or (ii) the Plan shall have been sooner terminated.
B. Each offering period shall be of such duration (not to exceed
twenty-four (24) months) as determined by the Plan Administrator prior to the
start date of such offering period. Offering periods shall commence at
semi-annual intervals on the first business day of May and November each year
over the term of the Plan. Accordingly, two (2) separate offering periods shall
commence in each calendar year the Plan remains in existence. However, the
initial offering period shall commence at the Effective Time and terminate on
the last business day in April 2004.
C. Each offering period shall consist of a series of one or more
successive Purchase Intervals. Purchase Intervals shall run from the first
business day in May to the last business day in October each year and from the
first business day in November each year to the last business day in April in
the following year. However, the first Purchase Interval in effect under the
initial offering period shall commence at the Effective Time and terminate on
the last business day in October 2002.
D. Should the Fair Market Value per share of Common Stock on any
Purchase Date within a particular offering period be less than the Fair Market
Value per share of Common Stock on the start date of that offering period, then
the individuals participating in such offering period shall, immediately after
the purchase of shares of Common Stock on their behalf on such Purchase Date, be
transferred from that offering period and automatically enrolled in the next
offering period commencing after such Purchase Date.
A. Each individual who is an Eligible Employee on the start date of
any offering period under the Plan may enter that offering period on such start
date. However, an Eligible Employee may participate in only one offering period
at a time. For the initial offering period commencing at the Effective Time,
each individual who is an Eligible Employee at that time shall automatically be
enrolled as a Participant with a contribution rate equal to ten percent (10%) of
his or her Cash Earnings.
B. Except as otherwise provided in Sections IV.D and V.A above, an
Eligible Employee must, in order to participate in the Plan for a particular
offering period, complete the enrollment forms prescribed by the Plan
Administrator (including a stock purchase agreement and a payroll deduction
authorization) and file such forms with the Plan Administrator (or its
designate) on or before the start date of that offering period.
VI. PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS
A. The payroll deduction authorized by the Participant for purposes
of acquiring shares of Common Stock during an offering period may be any
multiple of one percent (1%) of the Cash Earnings paid to the Participant during
each Purchase Interval within that offering period, up to a maximum of ten
percent (10%). The deduction rate so authorized shall continue in effect
throughout the offering period, except to the extent such rate is changed in
accordance with the following guidelines:
(i) The Participant may, at any time during the offering period,
reduce his or her rate of payroll deduction (or, to the extent applicable,
the percentage of Cash Earnings to serve as his or her lump sum
contribution for the initial Purchase Interval of the first offering
period) to become effective as soon as possible after filing the
appropriate form with the Plan Administrator. The Participant may not,
however, effect more than one (1) such reduction per Purchase Interval.
(ii) The Participant may, prior to the commencement of any new
Purchase Interval within the offering period, increase the rate of his or
her payroll deduction by filing the appropriate form with the Plan
Administrator. The new rate (which may not exceed the ten percent (10%)
maximum) shall become effective on the start date of the first Purchase
Interval following the filing of such form.
B. Payroll deductions shall begin on the first pay day
administratively feasible following the start date of the offering period and
shall (unless sooner terminated by the Participant) continue through the pay day
ending with or immediately prior to the last day of that offering period. The
amounts so collected shall be credited to the Participant's book account under
the Plan, but no interest shall be paid on the balance from time to time
outstanding in such account. The amounts collected from the Participant shall
not be required to be held in any segregated account or trust fund and may be
commingled with the general assets of the Corporation and used for general
C. For the initial Purchase Interval of the first offering period
under the Plan, no payroll deductions shall be required of the Participant until
such time as the Participant affirmatively elects to commence such payroll
deductions following his or her receipt of the 1933 Act prospectus for the Plan.
In the absence of such payroll deductions, the Participant will be required to
contribute the applicable percentage of his or her Cash Earnings to the Plan in
a lump sum payment immediately prior to the close of that Purchase Interval
should the Participant elect to have shares of Common Stock purchased on his or
her behalf on the Purchase Date for that initial Purchase Interval.
D. Payroll deductions shall automatically cease upon the termination
of the Participant's purchase right in accordance with the provisions of the
E. The Participant's acquisition of Common Stock under the Plan on
any Purchase Date shall neither limit nor require the Participant's acquisition
of Common Stock on any subsequent Purchase Date, whether within the same or a
different offering period.
VII. PURCHASE RIGHTS
A. GRANT OF PURCHASE RIGHTS. A Participant shall be granted a
separate purchase right for each offering period in which he or she is enrolled.
The purchase right shall be granted on the start date of the offering period and
shall provide the Participant with the right to purchase shares of Common Stock,
in a series of successive installments during that offering period, upon the
terms set forth below. The Participant shall execute a stock purchase agreement
embodying such terms and such other provisions (not inconsistent with the Plan)
as the Plan Administrator may deem advisable.
Under no circumstances shall purchase rights be granted under the Plan
to any Eligible Employee if such individual would, immediately after the grant,
own (within the meaning of Code Section 424(d)) or hold outstanding options or
other rights to purchase, stock possessing five percent (5%) or more of the
total combined voting power or value of all classes of stock of the Corporation
or any Corporate Affiliate.
B. EXERCISE OF THE PURCHASE RIGHT. Each purchase right shall be
automatically exercised in installments on each successive Purchase Date within
the offering period, and shares of Common Stock shall accordingly be purchased
on behalf of each Participant on each such Purchase Date. The purchase shall be
effected by applying the Participant's payroll deductions (or, to the extent
applicable, his or her lump sum contribution) for the Purchase Interval ending
on such Purchase Date to the purchase of whole shares of Common Stock at the
purchase price in effect for the Participant for that Purchase Date.
C. PURCHASE PRICE. The purchase price per share at which Common
Stock will be purchased on the Participant's behalf on each Purchase Date within
the particular offering period in which he or she is enrolled shall be equal to
eighty-five percent (85%) of the lower of (i) the Fair Market Value per share of
Common Stock on the start date of that offering period or (ii) the Fair Market
Value per share of Common Stock on that Purchase Date.
D. NUMBER OF PURCHASABLE SHARES. The number of shares of Common
Stock purchasable by a Participant on each Purchase Date during the particular
offering period in which he or she is enrolled shall be the number of whole
shares obtained by dividing the amount collected from the Participant through
payroll deductions during the Purchase Interval ending with that Purchase Date
(or, to the extent applicable, his or her lump sum contribution for that
Purchase Interval) by the purchase price in effect for the Participant for that
Purchase Date. However, the maximum number of shares of Common Stock purchasable
per Participant on any one Purchase Date shall not exceed 1,000 shares, subject
to periodic adjustments in the event of certain changes in the Corporation's
capitalization. In addition, the maximum number of shares of Common Stock
purchasable in total by all Participants in the Plan on any one Purchase Date
shall not exceed 400,000 shares, subject to periodic adjustments in the event of
certain changes in the Corporation's capitalization. However, the Plan
Administrator shall have the discretionary authority, exercisable prior to the
start of any offering period under the Plan, to increase or decrease the
limitations to be in effect for the number of shares purchasable per Participant
and in total by all Participants enrolled in that particular offering period on
each Purchase Date which occurs during that offering period.
E. EXCESS PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS. Any payroll deductions not applied to
the purchase of shares of Common Stock on any Purchase Date because they are not
sufficient to purchase a whole share of Common Stock shall be held for the
purchase of Common Stock on the next Purchase Date. However, any payroll
deductions not applied to the purchase of Common Stock by reason of the
limitation on the maximum number of shares purchasable per Participant or in
total by all Participants on the Purchase Date shall be promptly refunded.
F. SUSPENSION OF PAYROLL DEDUCTIONS. In the event that a Participant
is, by reason of the accrual limitations in Article VIII, precluded from
purchasing additional shares of Common Stock on one or more Purchase Dates
during the offering period in which he or she is enrolled, then no further
payroll deductions shall be collected from such Participant with respect to
those Purchase Dates. The suspension of such deductions shall not terminate the
Participant's purchase right for the offering period in which he or she is
enrolled, and payroll deductions shall automatically resume on behalf of such
Participant once he or she is again able to purchase shares during that offering
period in compliance with the accrual limitations of Article VIII.
G. WITHDRAWAL FROM OFFERING PERIOD. The following provisions shall
govern the Participant's withdrawal from an offering period:
(i) A Participant may withdraw from the offering period in which
he or she is enrolled at any time prior to the next scheduled Purchase Date
by filing the appropriate form with the Plan Administrator (or its
designate), and no further payroll deductions shall be collected from the
Participant with respect to that offering period. Any payroll deductions
collected during the Purchase Interval in which such withdrawal occurs
shall, at the Participant's election, be immediately refunded or held for
the purchase of shares on the next Purchase
Date. If no such election is made at the time of such withdrawal, then the
payroll deductions collected from the Participant during the Purchase
Interval in which such withdrawal occurs shall be refunded as soon as
(ii) The Participant's withdrawal from a particular offering
period shall be irrevocable, and the Participant may not subsequently
rejoin that offering period at a later date. In order to resume
participation in any subsequent offering period, such individual must
re-enroll in the Plan (by making a timely filing of the prescribed
enrollment forms) on or before the start date of that offering period.
H. TERMINATION OF PURCHASE RIGHT. The following provisions shall
govern the termination of outstanding purchase rights:
(i) Should the Participant cease to remain an Eligible Employee
for any reason (including death, disability or change in status) while his
or her purchase right remains outstanding, then that purchase right shall
immediately terminate, and all of the Participant's payroll deductions for
the Purchase Interval in which the purchase right so terminates shall be
(ii) However, should the Participant cease to remain in active
service by reason of an approved unpaid leave of absence, then the
Participant shall have the right, exercisable up until the last business
day of the Purchase Interval in which such leave commences, to (a) withdraw
all the payroll deductions collected to date on his or her behalf for that
Purchase Interval or (b) have such funds held for the purchase of shares on
his or her behalf on the next scheduled Purchase Date. In no event,
however, shall any further payroll deductions be collected on the
Participant's behalf during such leave. Upon the Participant's return to
active service (x) within ninety (90) days following the commencement of
such leave or (y) prior to the expiration of any longer period for which
such Participant's right to reemployment with the Corporation is guaranteed
by statute or contract, his or her payroll deductions under the Plan shall
automatically resume at the rate in effect at the time the leave began,
unless the Participant withdraws from the Plan prior to his or her return.
An individual who returns to active employment following a leave of absence
that exceeds in duration the applicable (x) or (y) time period will be
treated as a new Employee for purposes of subsequent participation in the
Plan and must accordingly re-enroll in the Plan (by making a timely filing
of the prescribed enrollment forms) on or before the start date of any
subsequent offering period in which he or she wishes to participate.
I. CHANGE IN CONTROL. Each outstanding purchase right shall
automatically be exercised, immediately prior to the effective date of any
Change in Control, by applying the payroll deductions of each Participant for
the Purchase Interval in which such Change in Control occurs to the purchase of
whole shares of Common Stock at a purchase price per share equal to eighty-five
percent (85%) of the lower of (i) the Fair Market Value per share of Common
Stock on the start date of the offering period in which such individual is
enrolled at the time of such Change in Control or (ii) the Fair Market Value per
share of Common Stock immediately prior to the effective date of such Change in
Control. However, the applicable limitation on the number of shares of Common
Stock purchasable per Participant shall continue to apply to any such purchase,
but not the limitation applicable to the maximum number of shares of Common
Stock purchasable in total by all Participants on any one Purchase Date.
The Corporation shall use its best efforts to provide at least ten
(10) days' prior written notice of the occurrence of any Change in Control, and
Participants shall, following the receipt of such notice, have the right to
terminate their outstanding purchase rights prior to the effective date of the
Change in Control.
J. PRORATION OF PURCHASE RIGHTS. Should the total number of shares
of Common Stock to be purchased pursuant to outstanding purchase rights on any
particular date exceed the number of shares then available for issuance under
the Plan, the Plan Administrator shall make a pro-rata allocation of the
available shares on a uniform and nondiscriminatory basis, and the payroll
deductions of each Participant, to the extent in excess of the aggregate
purchase price payable for the Common Stock pro-rated to such individual, shall
K. ASSIGNABILITY. The purchase right shall be exercisable only by
the Participant and shall not be assignable or transferable by the Participant.
L. STOCKHOLDER RIGHTS. A Participant shall have no stockholder
rights with respect to the shares subject to his or her outstanding purchase
right until the shares are purchased on the Participant's behalf in accordance
with the provisions of the Plan and the Participant has become a holder of
record of the purchased shares.
VIII. ACCRUAL LIMITATIONS
A. No Participant shall be entitled to accrue rights to acquire
Common Stock pursuant to any purchase right outstanding under this Plan if and
to the extent such accrual, when aggregated with (i) rights to purchase Common
Stock accrued under any other purchase right granted under this Plan and (ii)
similar rights accrued under other employee stock purchase plans (within the
meaning of Code Section 423)) of the Corporation or any Corporate Affiliate,
would otherwise permit such Participant to purchase more than Twenty-Five
Thousand Dollars ($25,000.00) worth of stock of the Corporation or any Corporate
Affiliate (determined on the basis of the Fair Market Value per share on the
date or dates such rights are granted) for each calendar year such rights are at
any time outstanding.
B. For purposes of applying such accrual limitations to the purchase
rights granted under the Plan, the following provisions shall be in effect:
(i) The right to acquire Common Stock under each outstanding
purchase right shall accrue in a series of installments on each successive
Purchase Date during the offering period in which such right remains
(ii) No right to acquire Common Stock under any outstanding
purchase right shall accrue to the extent the Participant has already
accrued in the same calendar year the right to acquire Common Stock under
one or more other purchase rights at a rate equal to Twenty-Five Thousand
Dollars ($25,000.00) worth of Common Stock (determined on the basis of the
Fair Market Value per share on the date or dates of grant) for each
calendar year such rights were at any time outstanding.
C. If by reason of such accrual limitations, any purchase right of a
Participant does not accrue for a particular Purchase Interval, then the payroll
deductions that the Participant made during that Purchase Interval with respect
to such purchase right shall be promptly refunded.
D. In the event there is any conflict between the provisions of this
Article and one or more provisions of the Plan or any instrument issued
thereunder, the provisions of this Article shall be controlling.
IX. EFFECTIVE DATE AND TERM OF THE PLAN
A. The Plan was adopted by the Board on February 11, 2002, and

from Participants during the initial offering period hereunder shall be

all purchase rights are exercised in connection with a Change in Control. No
further purchase rights shall be granted or exercised, and no further payroll
deductions shall be collected, under the Plan following such termination.
X. AMENDMENT OF THE PLAN
A. The Board may alter, amend, suspend or terminate the Plan at any
time to become effective immediately following the close of any Purchase
Interval. However, the Plan may be amended or terminated immediately upon Board
action, if and to the extent necessary to assure that the Corporation will not
recognize, for financial reporting purposes, any compensation expense in
connection with the shares of Common Stock offered for purchase under the Plan,
should the financial accounting rules applicable to the Plan at the Effective
Time be subsequently revised so as to require the Corporation to recognize
compensation expense in the absence of such amendment or termination.
B. In no event may the Board effect any of the following amendments
or revisions to the Plan without the approval of the Corporation's stockholders:
