When JetBlue first launched service between New York (LGA) and Boston (BOS) in October 2016, it tried to separate itself from the competition on that crowded route with additional perks, which are still available.

If you book a flight with JetBlue between LGA and BOS, here are the benefits you’re entitled to:

  • Free in-flight wine and beer for all passengers, no matter the time of the day.
  • Free coffee before, during and after your flight. More specifically, Dunkin’ Donuts coffee on all morning departures. Before or after your flight, show your boarding pass at the Au Bon Pain near the gate for a complimentary cup of coffee to-go.
  • Free Wi-Fi from gate-to-gate.

These perks are great for those flying between LGA and BOS. No matter the time of day, you’ll have access to special benefits that help to set JetBlue apart from other competition on the route. Pretty routinely, you can find round-trip tickets between the two for less than $100.

American Airlines and Delta Air Lines are JetBlue’s competition on the LGA-BOS route. AA offers flyers complimentary snacks, beer and wine in the main cabin, but no complimentary Wi-Fi or in-airport coffee. Delta offers complimentary Starbucks coffee at the gate, bagels before 11:00am and complimentary beer and wine. However, you must purchase Wi-Fi with Delta.
