Tick, tock. The clock is ticking on these JetBlue flash fares. Flights across the U.S., including cities such as Boston (BOS), Atlanta (ATL) and San Francisco (SFO) are starting at just $44 or 3,100 TrueBlue points one-way. We're even seeing great deals to the Caribbean starting at less than 4,000 points plus taxes and fees one-way.

Keep in mind that the cheapest tickets paid in cash are in JetBlue's recently rolled-out basic economy Blue Basic fare class. That means changes and cancellations will not be allowed, not even for a fee. Customers traveling on Blue Basic fares will forfeit their entire ticket cost if they do not travel on their originally booked flights. Passengers flying on Blue Basic tickets will be the last group called for boarding.

However, TrueBlue members holding the JetBlue Plus Card will still receive one checked bag for free, even at the Basic Blue fare. If you're paying with TrueBlue points, these tickets are in regular Blue fare class.
