[Business Class] jetBlue: Boston / New York – Seattle (and vice versa) $596. Roundtrip, including all Taxes

A good sale for nonstop service between Boston / New York and Seattle.

jetBlue’s Mint Business Class is good, especially if you can get one of the 4 individual throne seats.

Out of Boston, Alaska Air is a little cheaper but they do not have lie-flat seats. Alaska Air uses recliners. We would pay a little bit more for the comfort of a lie-flat seat.
