Editor’s note: This post has been updated with new information.
As the holidays approach and winter travel is on everyone’s minds, JetBlue is slashing fares once again. The airline is offering tickets as low as $31 for trips taking place between Nov. 2 and Feb. 15.
Days before Halloween, JetBlue’s Monster Sale offers discounts to a variety of U.S. cities as well as Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. From select cities, you can also fly to additional destinations like Jamaica and Vancouver, British Columbia.
This deal only lasts until 11:59 p.m. EDT on Oct. 27, so we recommend booking your flights as soon as you can.
Routes: From New York City, Newark, Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Denver, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Nashville, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and many other cities in the U.S., Puerto Rico and U.S. Virgin Islands.
How to book: Directly through JetBlue’s website.
Travel dates: Nov. 2 to Feb. 15; Nov. 18-Nov. 28 and Dec. 16-Jan. 3 are blackout dates.
Book by: Oct. 27.
While this JetBlue deal applies to most cities, some of these destinations don’t have many routes to choose from. For example, Austin only has two discounted routes to New York and Boston. New York City and Boston are among those with the most travel options. From New York City, you can fly to multiple destinations in the U.S. Virgin Islands or to Vancouver, while Boston offers cheap flights to cities like Miami and San Francisco.
Also, these very low fares only apply to one-way flights; this JetBlue sale bundles up round-way flights and two-night hotel stays.
Here are a few noteworthy flights:
- Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), starting at $31.
- BOS to Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI), starting at $31.
- LaGuardia Airport (LGA) to Orlando International Airport (MCO), starting at $31.
- BOS to Miami International Airport (MIA), starting at $79.
- John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Owen Roberts International Airport (GCM) in Grand Cayman, starting at $89.
- BOS to Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA), starting at $99.
- JFK to Vancouver International Airport (YVR), starting at $174.
JetBlue’s deal is only for its Blue Basic economy fares. Without any extra perks, a one-way flight from New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LGA) to Orlando International Airport (MCO) costs $31. If you’re booking a trip during the week of Nov. 14, there are $31 fares for four consecutive days.
The only way to pay a total of $62 for a round-trip from New York to Orlando would be to select a one-way flight taking off on Nov. 14 and then another one-way flight departing Orlando on Nov. 16. The only two flights on Nov. 14 with these low fares leave New York at 4:29 p.m. and 6:15 p.m.
When returning to New York, JetBlue has three $31 flights leaving Orlando, taking off at 5:34 p.m., 6:55 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.
Blue Basic does not allow carry-on bags or advance seat selection. You can pay an additional $76 for JetBlue’s economy fare, which is a slight upgrade from Blue Basic since it allows you to bring a carry-on and select a seat.
Blue Basic does offer some perks, but you have to pay extra for them. Seat selection, baggage check-in, priority check-in and pets all cost extra. For an Orlando flight, seats can cost anywhere between $9 and $59 depending on comfort and location.
