We love hearing about potential airline competition on popular routes!  It typically means other airlines who fly to the same destinations have to reduce their prices or enhance their service.  And it usually introduces a new way to redeem miles & points to save on flights!

That’s why we were ecstatic to hear about JetBlue’s President commenting on the airline potentially “disrupting” Business Class flights between the US and Europe.  I know a lot of frequent flyers love JetBlue because there are never blackout dates for award seats.

And if you’ve ever flown JetBlue’s Mint Business Class, you’ll know it’s nearly impossible to find a comparable premium product on any other US airline.

I’m a Huge Fan of JetBlue’s Mint Business Class! It Would Be a Game Changer for Miles & Points Enthusiasts If the Airlines Launches These Lie-Flat Seats on Flights to Europe!

When JetBlue first launched Mint Business Class on transcontinental flights, it was possible to book round-trip tickets for less than $1,200.  This was significantly cheaper than competitors’ prices.  And I’ve found the food, service, and experience of JetBlue’s Business Class to be exceptional!

While the potential for new competition is exciting, we’re not getting our hopes up just yet.  The airline has been talking about service to Europe for the past couple of years.  And the airline doesn’t currently have an aircraft in their fleet that could support the long-haul route.  Although, the CEO has indicated they’re in talks with Airbus to determine the best aircraft to service the route.

Miles & points enthusiasts should be excited about the possibility of JetBlue flying to Europe.  Chase recently added JetBlue as an airline transfer partner, which is great news if you have cards like the Chase Sapphire Preferred, Chase Ink Business Preferred, or Chase Sapphire Reserve.

Plus, you can transfer Citi ThankYou points and AMEX Membership Rewards points directly to JetBlue, too.
