Coming from the US I noticed none of the intnreet search engines regarding flights include Jet Blue. Are they a new carrier for Barbados or have they flown under the radar (sorry for the pun)? Coming from Boston their price was ridiculously low when I booked a month ago in comparison to others. Originally Barbados wasn't the destination I had in mind but when I saw $169 per person from Boston getting there, and $189 per person getting back I had to take advantage (doesn't include taxes). Is this normal, or did I stumble onto something?
