Yes, you read the title correctly, the American airline JetBlue, known for its low cost flights, recently gave their customers a deal, that was worth jumping (or leaping) for joy about. This his past February 2nd, they unveiled a sale, that they referred to as “Book Before You Leap”, which offered JetBlue travelers the opportunity to purchase $29 one-way flights. The only stipulation was that JetBlue flyers would have to travel on Monday, February 29th (also known to many as ‘Leap Day’ … thus the ‘book before you leap’ idea in its title), to obtain the sale price.
These $29 one-way flights included travels from Boston to Seattle, Los Angeles to Florida, or New York City to San Francisco. Any way you sliced it, this made for a pretty incredible airline flash sale; flash sale, because customers were only given the opportunity to book within 24 hours on Tuesday, February 2nd; where the sale ended 11:59 p.m. (EST).
It’s important to note, not every flight within specific destinations made the $29 Leap Day sale price, as travels needed to be booked for a specific time, in order to gain the $29 price. Regardless, the sale was a great way to celebrate a day that only really comes every four years; with a deal that flyers might not see again, for a while.
