Jet Blue Mint Pricing
So I’ve been watching Jet Blue Mint prices from JFK to LAX and SFO for a few months now for travel next March. On most of the flights, the prices are $899 (SFO) or $999 (LAX). Just 2 flights to SFO and 1 flight LAX have prices of $599 (and I’ve seen those occasionally dip to $549).
Since I’ve seen $599 described as the “early purchase” Mint fare, I’m wondering if those flight that are currently much more expensive have any chance of dropping to $599 before the travel date approaches. From looking at the available seats, no Mint seats have yet been sold on the flights I’m looking at, but they’re still going for $300-400 over the $599 early purchase fare.
Thanks for any advice from the Mint experts!
Maybe those are for travel during peak hours and/or the legacy carriers are all pricing tickets just as high, if not higher? Airline pricing is a great mystery
