UPDATE: Folks, this fare is gone. Hope some of you were able to book it!
One Mile At A Time notes a particularly good deal on JetBlue if you are looking to travel to London cheaply in Mint Business Class. You can fly round-trip from San Juan to London via New York for only $795 round-trip in business class. That’s quite the deal.
Act Fast: Under $800 R/T For JetBlue Mint Business Class To London
While nonstop prices between New York and London are much higher (and rightfully so), JetBlue is offering much cheaper pricing from other cities. For example, fly from London to Ft. Lauderdale via New York and the flights (in both economy and business class) are cheaper than just the New York flight alone.
But the best deal, thus far, if you are just looking to experience the product is to start in San Juan, Puerto Rico. There, JetBlue is offering round-trip Mint fares starting at $795.
Note a couple things. First, you cannot combine a Mint one-way with a cheap economy class one-way (JetBlue forces you to buy a pricier Blue versus Blue Basic ticket if you want to mix fares). Second, you will be in economy class between San Juan and New York since that aircraft does not operate with a Mint business class cabin.
That said, this is a remarkable deal that likely will not last.

JetBlue is offering great fares to/from London if you go beyond New York. While there is a possibility JetBlue could claim this was an “error” I strongly doubt it (since economy class fares are even cheaper, which is often a tell-tale sign of a mistake fares).
I’m on the fence about this fare. Not because $795 is too much…the price is perfect. But because I think we will see many attractive fares in the days and weeks to come and hopefully some love from California, where I am based.
Will you take advantage of these JetBlue cheap London fares? I am tempted…
