JetBlue caps flights at $99-$159 to escape #Irma
Yahoo Finance is reporting that JetBlue is capping all direct flights out of cities affected by Hurricane Irma at $99 (or $159 if a connection is needed).
They have also increased capacity on the routes. That said, I’m seeing very little availability searching from MIA and FLL to NYC. For instance, I see one seat on Friday (grab it if you need it!). In fairness, I’m only searching to NYC and not nationwide because, well, time.
Delta isn’t capping anything but I do see one seat on Saturday for $143. Trouble is, that is likely too late to actually fly.
Meanwhile, AA has flights from over $400 and United from over $700!!
So kudos to JetBlue for at least trying to actually get people the heck out of harm’s way without gouging!
Have you been affected by needing to fly out of Irma’s path? Let us know in the comments!
