JetBlue is a revenue-based award program, which means that the number of points you used is based on the cash price of the ticket. The cheaper the ticket, the fewer points are required (e.g., a $200 ticket would cost 14,250 points, $250 ticket would cost 17,800 points, and $300 ticket would cost 21,500 points)
JetBlue Formula= Cash price of flight multiplied by .014 is the general formula that JetBlue uses to calculate the number of points required for a certain flight.
- You do have to pay taxes on top of the number of points. For travel within the U.S., the cost is $5.60 one-way. For international travel, the cost is likely higher.
- JetBlue Mint (first class) has a little more variation in the number of points required and generally, you get slightly less value when redeeming (1.3 cents per point rather than 1.4 cents)
You can also use JetBlue points on Hawaiian Airlines. Here is Hawaiian’s route map. You must call 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583) to book.
