US airline JetBlue is rapidly expanding its transatlantic flying. It now has five daily flights to London and over the summer launched flights to Paris and Amsterdam.
Next summer, JetBlue will operate 13 daily flights across the Atlantic with the addition of three seasonal routes to Dublin and Edinburgh.
Edinburgh will get a daily service to New York whilst Dublin will have daily flights to New York and Boston.
Whilst we haven’t reviewed it yet, JetBlue has an attractive business class product called ‘Mint’ on these services. Note that the airline uses single-aisle A321 and A321LR aircraft, so you get 1×1 seating in Business and 3×3 in Economy.
Flight times are as follows:

All flights are seasonal and will end on 30th September.
JetBlue and Aer Lingus have an established codeshare agreement, so the two Dublin flights will open up many more destinations across Europe with a single connection.
Can you earn Avios on JetBlue flights?
Yes you can. Whilst JetBlue isn’t a British Airways Executive Club partner, it IS a Qatar Privilege Club partner.
You can open a Qatar Privilege Club account on the Qatar Airways website, credit your JetBlue flight to the account and then transfer the Avios to your British Airways account. You won’t earn BA tier points, however.
