Now that you know you are in, it is time to start checking out your travel. Over the next month, there will be many posts here to help you get that travel for next to nothing.
JetBlue Schedule Extended
For everyone, the good news is that the JetBlue schedule has now been extended for travel through June 14, 2017. This will help you get your travel plans going up until school is let out next year! So, start searching!
Great News for Boston Marathoners
JetBlue has a great presence in Boston and that makes JetBlue an excellent option for the 2017 Boston Marathon runners. There are also frequent deals that make Boston a great option for flying with JetBlue. It is great news so that you can lock in your travel for the Boston Marathon now and do it on one of the most comfortable airlines in the US.
Some more good news for those running the 2017 Boston Marathon and JetBlue is that JetBlue runs their Mint cabins out of Boston as well. This is generally regarded as the best business class option to fly cross-country – and other destinations as well! For now, JetBlue is flying the Mint cabin out of Boston to San Francisco and Barbados. They will be adding it to the routes from Boston to Seattle, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Aruba at points from 2017 through 2018.
For now, if you are traveling to Boston from cross-country, you could also consider flying into JFK and continuing from there to Boston as there are many more Mint flights into JFK from the West Coast. Tickets in Mint class start at $599 one way but you can pay for that with JetBlue points as well.
Getting Free Travel to the 2017 Boston Marathon on JetBlue
You can apply for one of the three different JetBlue cards to get JetBlue points to use at a rate of around 1.5 cents per point (give or take). One of the personal card offers is currently at 30,000 points and that makes a great start in your travel redemptions for the Boston Marathon.
