Even though basic economy is restrictive, it can be a good option for short flights — Baltimore to Boston and vice versa is an approximately 90-minute flight.
Since Blue Basic does not include checked baggage, you can pay an additional $30 to check your luggage one-way ($60 in total for a round-trip flight).
