This is an incredible deal!

Note though that it is for their new "economy light" fare which includes ONLY a carry on with no option to buy up later (AFAICT). A better option for most would probably be to add the "bundle" up front, which adds a checked bag up to 50lbs and personal item up 22lbs. The total price for that is $299, still an incredible deal.

It may potentially be bookable with BP as well via JetBlue.

We should keep an eye on DL, they may possibly try to match this.

I once thought of that. How is that done? Would Jetblue sell you a ticket for them if you fly only Iceland Air? Or only if you connect with Jetblue? I tried searching for a route that they fly on Jetblue's website, and jetblue didn't come up with anything, even though Jetblue had both cities listed as partner cities..

I believe it needs to be called in.

Also, if you were trying to book with points, you can't. That may have been the reason as well.

I see. I wasn't booking with points. I wanted to see if it's possible to use with BP. Jetblue appears on Amex travel? Or I have to call Jetblue, book, and call Amex?

Not sure. You'd probably be better off asking in the BP thread.

-1. Can add it online with 20% discount or at the airport.
You can also upgrade out of light later on.

Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.
