We’ve spotted a cheap flight deal to a popular Caribbean island — and it’s in lie-flat business class!

Let’s take a look at this amazing deal and explore ways to book

Fare Deal — Details

This deal is on JetBlue’s nonstop route between New York (JFK) and the Caribbean island St. Maarten (SXM). What’s incredible about this particular deal is that it’s in JetBlue Mint — meaning you’ll get a lie-flat seat on the route.

JetBlue is 1 of the few airlines to fly lie-flat seats to the Caribbean, so coming across deals like this always catches our eye.

Play with some dates on Google Flights and then book directly with JetBlue for the best deal:

  • Class: JetBlue Mint
  • Route: New York (JFK) to St. Maarten (SXM)
  • Dates: Select dates in August and September 2024
  • Rates: As low as $1,040 round-trip

If you want to save cash and prefer using JetBlue TrueBlue points, you’re in luck. You’ll find tickets starting at 39,200 points each way.

September is considered low season in St. Maarten, so expect fewer tourists and a slower vibe overall. You’ll also typically find hotels at a pretty sizable discount heading into the fall.

How to Book

The best availability can be found in August and September, though other (more expensive) flights may be available.

Once you’ve picked travel dates, make sure to book your flights using a credit card to maximize flight purchases. Here are some of the best travel cards out right now:

Hot Tip:

Do you fly JetBlue often? Consider opening opening a co-branded card. The JetBlue Plus Card and The JetBlue Business Card offer 6x JetBlue TrueBlue points per $1 spent on JetBlue flight purchases, while The JetBlue Card offers 3x JetBlue points on JetBlue flight purchases.

Final Thoughts

This is an incredible deal to 1 of the most sought-after destinations in the Caribbean. For just over $1,000 (or 78,400 points) round-trip, you can enjoy nearly 4 hours in a lie-flat seat.

Like many deals, this one likely won’t last long, so make sure to book ASAP before it’s gone!
