Fare Deal: Boston To/From Seattle From $449 (JetBlue Mint Lie-Flat)

by Miles Jackson

JetBlue’s Mint class was the first product to offer doors in business class. In a word, it was revolutionary. Now, we have QSuites, British Airways’ upcoming new product, and many more.

You can experience Mint with a transcontinental fare for less than $450 one-way. Even better, you can do it from either coast — starting in Boston or Seattle.

JetBlue features 16 seats in Mint, four of which are private suites with doors.

Need Things To Do In Seattle?

Visiting Seattle for the first time?  Check out Pike’s Place Market, the Seattle Center, and hop on a ferry to Bremerton for an afternoon lunch and amazing views of the Seattle skyline and Mount Rainier.

My favorite attractions in Seattle are the Museum of Flight and Future of Flight. The first is an aviation museum located almost next door to the SeaTac airport. Future of Flight is located at Paine Field in Everett, WA (just north of Seattle.) There, you can see where (and how) airplanes are built on guided small-group tours of the Boeing factory.

Need Things To Do In Boston?

My favorite place in Boston is the south side of Beacon Hill — a great place to wander. Experience the city’s Freedom Trail and Paul Revere’s House which is open to tour. You can also visit (and climb) the tower of Old North Church.

For either city, you might want to consider getting a CityPass. It is a straightforward way to explore the most popular attractions, including expedited entry.

Best Ways to Maximize Your Purchase

Besides the miles you would earn with the airline for actually flying, you can also earn points for spending on credit cards. These are some of the cards that offer bonuses for purchasing airfare.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card – 2x Ultimate Rewards points on travel (directly with airline or OTA)
The Platinum Card® from American Express – 5x Membership Rewards points on flights booked directly with the airline
The Chase Sapphire Reserve – 3x Ultimate Rewards points on travel (directly with airline or OTA)

JetBlue Cards: JetBlue offers two cards, the JetBlue card and the JetBlue Plus card, both from Barclays. Both earn bonuses on JetBlue flights, dining and grocery store purchases, but only the $99-per-year plus card includes baggage and elite status, for those who spend enough.

The Upshot

Boston to Seattle is getting more competitive, especially with Delta developing their hub in both of these cities. JetBlue certainly wants to make a noticeable presence. Their Mint service is fantastic for a domestic product.

There’s scattered availability from right now through the spring of next year, so you want to check out those fares as shown above. If you don’t find this low fare for your first set of dates, keep trying. They are loaded through the schedule into 2020.

Small correction. “Future of flight” is located in Everett 30 min north of Seattle next to the new Paine Field airport (PAE) and Boeing Everett Factory. This is where the Boeing factory tour is offered.

The “Museum of Flight” on other hand is a major museum located south of Seattle and this is a full fledged flight museum featuring BA Concord, first 747, 707 Air force one, first 727 are displayed. No Boeing factory tour offered there.

Any aviation geek should be doing both.

tjp74 –
Thank you for the note. I’ve visited both and agree that aviation geeks should definitely experience both! I’ve edited to make the corrections. Thanks for reading.

My jaw dropped when I read “How Much: From $449 roundtrip JetBlue Mint (business class)” ROUNDTRIP? I wish! 🙂

Bill Herman-
I’ve revised the wording to make it clearer that it’s $449 one way or $897 Roundtrip. Thanks!
