JetBlue Mint Award Flights
The most coveted seats on these flights will be the new JetBlue Mint Studio (note this is only available to be booked as a paid ticket) followed by the new JetBlue Mint Suites.
Because JetBlue TrueBlue is a revenue based program (more expensive cash tickets also cost more TrueBlue points), TrueBlue points are only worth ~1.2 cents per point when reserving JetBlue Mint, which is poor value compared to frequent flyer miles of region based award charts, where redemptions of 5-10 cents per mile or so is possible.
Instead, if you have flexible dates, try to book JetBlue Mint Suites on the Boston to London flights using Emirates Skywards miles; expect to pay 64,000 Skywards miles + $11. Note that if you book London to Boston, you'll pay more due to the UK's high APD (air passenger duty) on flights departing the UK: it will be 64,000 Skywards miles + GBP 255.
