Is 20K JetBlue worth a free flight? Sorry for ignorance, but I've never really dealt with JetBlue.
20K Can actually be worth a lot of flights or one. JetBlue operates differently than most carriers. There isn't a standardized mile reward system, it depends on what the price of the ticket would be.
So if you get a $50 fare it would be 5,000 miles. It isn't always that math, as I have seen an $80 fare for 6,600 miles. When I was looking to get tickets to Orlando I could get two round trip fares for 26,000 miles.
Nope. They have Aer Lingus as an interline partner but they don't fly to Ireland themselves. They have a dozen or so partners now for interline travel but, of those, only AA allows FF earning and that's not at a straight miles flown rate. None of the partners allow FF redemption yet.
Thanks for the info - had no idea they flew to South America.
They do! I'm Bogota bound baby

Correct! I was up between Costa Rica & Colombia.
I'm an adventure travel enthusiast, so both are very appealing as both have 4+ rivers you can commercially whitewater raft. We ended up picking Colombia as it's cheaper to do the adventure activities, the hostel is cheaper, and I've only been to Colombia on work. It's time to play! and on these prices, you can't beat it:
$8/night - private room in a hostel in the mountain town where all adventures are based out of!
$25 - Canyoning (would be $80+ in Costa Rica!)
$17 - caving w/200 foot rappel (UNBELIEVABLE!)
$25 - rafting on a body board
$40-$100 - the cost to raft 4 top notch rivers (each)
With prices like that, Colombia was a no brainer. Head to San Gil in the mountains (bus from Bogota), and get wild people! I got the prices from www.colombiarafting.com if any of you mile hoarders want to head down there sometime. I'm stoked
