Disappointed with the starting date (Summer 2022) from Boston, but not the airfares! $599 round trip from NYC starting this summer to Heathrow, holy crap, that’s awesome! And Mint $1,979 round trip! Wow!
I freakin love Jet Blue!!


I noticed the Blue fare includes a checked bag for London flights which is not the case for anything on our side of the Atlantic. The Blue Basic also allows a carry-on. From a points perspective its about 160K TrueBlue for MINT roundtrip based on November pricing on JFK-Heathrow. I'd think I would rather use True Blue points for Caribbean at the end of the day.

There are still some Caribbean and Latin American destinations where Blue Plus (including a checked bag) is available - Port Au Prince is a notable one from Boston and a lot of the non-Colombian South American routes like Lima have the option too.

Not to go too off-topic here, but given B6's presence at BOS, I've switched to them for the vast majority of my leisure travel. Accordingly, I have their co-branded Barclays Mastercard which gives you 6x points on all airfare purchases, plus baggage allowances on all blue fares. I've found myself paying for fares to reap the point bonus. My first post-pandemic flight is BOS-SFO in early June, booked with points I hoarded over the last 20 months or so.

Breeze chose TPA - CHS as its first route.

I wouldn’t be surprised to see more BOS-TPA or BOS-CHS just to make sure Breeze”doesn’t get any ideas” and sticks to “intra south” flying
Breeze announced PVD-ORF, PVD-CHS, PVD-PIT as its first Providence routes, giving Jetblue, Delta, Allegiant some competition from south-of-city fliers at Logan.

Gee, Southwest would be fully capable of all those PVD routes. Is Breeze just going to pick off the smaller-than-a-737 O&D pairs on Southwest's route map?

Not sure why, but Southwest used to have a nice route map where you could hover over a city, and see all the non-stop destinations. Anyways, how large is Southwest in Pittsburgh?

Atlanta, Baltimore, Chicago–Midway, Dallas–Love, Denver, Fort Lauderdale, Fort Myers, Houston–Hobby, Las Vegas, Myrtle Beach (begins May 29, 2021),[88]Nashville, Orlando, Phoenix–Sky Harbor, St. Louis, Tampa
Seasonal: Cancún(resumes June 12, 2021),[89] New Orleans, Savannah

They seem to fly leisure and focus city flights from PIT. Good size though.

Thinking of Breeze, it is interesting to look back to 2010 and see all the places that:
AirTran flew that Southwest eventually left...that Spirit Airilnes has not backfilled
Huntsville is one, but...(some include)

Flint MI (which is also a fave for anyone on Detroit's north side)
Dayton OH
Harrisburg PA

Beginning November 17th, Spirit is adding non-stop service to Miami.

There will now be 5 airlines serving Miami from Boston - American, Delta, Frontier, JetBlue and Spirit.
And it'll probably still be cheaper to fly into FLL (which is an airport I'm growing to hate).

We loved Air Tran, Atlanta was it’s biggest hub, from there it seemed they flew everywhere, and at the best prices. Southwest bought em out and basically dismantled it, selling it’s aircraft to Delta for big discounts, and dropping many of it’s routes, along with it’s business class which was so affordable. Having said that, the Air Tran cabin crew were thrilled, their pay skyrocketed when they moved to SW. A personal friend who was an Air Tran flight attendant said he felt like he won the lottery.

Southwest schedule extension has a bizarre Sunday only Boston-Kansas City flight starting in November.

Both flights timed to arrive at 5pm so its not the use of a spare plane doing a back and forth run.


No, this is about them starting service to Miami.
According to some airliners.net South Florida posters, Spirit had been flirting with a move to Miami International for a bit. Now it seems like they have decided to use both airports.

I believe they've got a maintenance base there, could be repositioning equipment and making a few bucks on the side?

The sunday only is a bit weird, but SW used to have a regular daily BOS-MCI flight at least between 2014-Jan 2020, so there was at least demand for that route.

Delta also flies Boston to Kansas City non-stop, daily. I believe it used to be twice daily, but suspended during the pandemic and now back at just once daily. JetBlue is also starting non-stop service there in 2022.
