Sample flights

The deals below are for Blue Basic seats on JetBlue, which are the same as basic economy fares on other carriers and only include a standard seat. A carry-on, checked bag and seat selection cost extra.

The cheapest option we found had limited availability. Flights from Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to Seattle (SEA) at $178 round-trip can be found on select dates in February, but if you have a flexible schedule you can snag this deal.
