A return flight from Baltimore to Boston for under $100 is considered low, according to Google Flights. The lowest possible fares to Boston are typically between $190 and $375.
Fares included in this bargain offer are for Basic Economy only. For JetBlue, Blue Basic does not allow passengers to bring carry-on baggage or make changes to their flights free of charge.
While basic economy is restrictive, it can be a good option for short flights — Baltimore to Boston and vice versa is a flight of around 90 minutes.
Since Blue Basic does not include checked baggage, you can pay an additional $30 to check your bags one-way ($60 total for a round trip).
Seat selection prices range from $4 to $39, with the more expensive seats offering more legroom. The cheapest seats are the middle ones, located at the back of the plane.
