The Shorthaul – United / JetBlue – $197: Boston – Houston (and vice versa). Roundtrip, including all Taxes

United is responding to JetBlue’s sale. If you are a Houston flyer, United is probably your program of choice and a better option. If you are in Boston and an infrequent flyer, JetBlue would probably make more sense with the 5X TrueBlue points bonus you will earn about 2,934 points or $38.14 in future travel value.
