Re: Why doesn't JetBlue fly to Canada?

jetBlue still comes in at lower fares though. It's harder to find $79 dollar fares from JFK-MCO on Delta than it is on jetBlue. JFK-DAB on jetBlue has costed me as little as 170 round trip while DL through ATL was well over $300. Like I said, they're getting there, and Mint is probably what is reall...
