I saw JetBlue advertising this Flight Week promotion this weekend via Facebook, but there was no indication what the actual deal would be. Well today was the first of the five day sale, where every day JetBlue will announce a few cities where flights from the New York City airports (EWR, JFK, LGA) will be discounted by 80%!!
While this is an unbelievably cheap way to travel, you have to be extremely flexible as this is really for limited dates over the next week or two. The daily travel cities will be announced each day at noon and I’ll be sure to post the city pairs and the codes to be used. All flights for the desired participating city pairs must be booked by 11:59pm EST the day the deal is announced.
Also remember that the 80% comes off of the base fare, not taxes, so some of the Caribbean flights still have decently high taxes tied to them. For the fun of it, I checked out the flight from JFK to St. Maarten and it was $170 round-trip which is one heck of a deal! While I personally will not be taking advantage of this, I am hoping some of you can. Those with flexible jobs and minimal family obligations could have a great vacation, enjoy!
