Spoiler Travel: Where Will JetBlue's Mystery Trips Take You?

September 9, 2008 at 8:00 AM | by | ()

Included in JetBlue's big eBay promo/fare sale/stunt thingy are four "Mystery" flight-and-hotel packages. Bidding on each has already topped four figures, even though some people may not know where they'll be headed. So, as a sort of Jaunted PSA, we put on our deerstalker and deduced where each package would take the winners:

Package 1: It's a domestic vacation, sure, but which of "JetBlue's fun leisure destinations" does it involve? Well, Flight 31 leaves JFK at 10:55 am, arriving in Orlando at 1:37 pm on September 18. The trip back syncs up too. You can buy a package with a similar hotel and flights for two on JetBlue.com for less than $750; we won't be bidding on this one!

Package 2: This one gets you to Fort Lauderdale on Flight 19 and back to NYC on Flight 62. Your "ocean view room" is in a four-star Marriott resort. Checking JetBlue.com, you can dig up a package at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort and Spa and flights for two for just less than $1,500. This morning the "mystery" deal is going for more than $2,000!

Package 3: This vacay will put you on Flight 751 out to Cancun; you'll head back to NYC via Flight 752. Even though it includes a $100 food and drink credit, this is far from a good bid: We found flights and a room at the swanky JW Marriott Cancun Resort and Spa for $1,282.

Package 4: This one's already going for more than $3,000. (At least it comes with a $100 food and beverage credit!) It's a trip to Aruba, departing JFK on Flight 755 and returning on Flight 756. But at one of JetBlue's partner Marriotts, you can get a fifth night free. We found a five-night--not four-night--stay and flights for a hair more than $2,100. Sorry suckers!
