Booked a few, but fully expect these routes to be cancelled/dropped unless demand picks up. I had similarly priced routes on Mint for this Fall/Winter and jetblue just cancelled them all on a rolling month-by-month basis.

If these are the same fares that have been available off and on for awhile, they are 60-day advance purchase. But, as another poster said, beware of cancellations. I've already been affected twice (to SAN), and a boatload of SEA flights were cancelled in one fell swoop.

Same here, these fares have been available for a while. I also booked one only to have them cancel the route for the whole month, so don't fall in love with it or book a fare the other way, or hotels etc, that cannot be cancelled as well.

Sorry but regarding the cancellations - are you indicating that they cancel the entire route, or just that the nonstops with MINT seats are replaced with connecting flights that donít have MINT? If the latter presumably you could get a refund, no?

thatís a stellar fare, Iím seeing 2x higher for BOS-SFO in mint.

In my case they removed the entire month I was booked in for SEA Mint service. I was automatically re-routed in economy through Fort Lauderdale and elected to cancel for a full refund.

Likewise, I was booked for BOS-LAS Mint service and rerouted through FLL with no Mint without being told anything.

As a cautionary tale, despite the fact that my BOS-LAS flight was cancelled and DOT rules say that cancellations allow for a refund, Jetblue's site suggests that a cancellation which is rebooked to a new flight within two hours doesn't qualify for a refund. I booked a Mint fare through AMEX and they tried to claim that they were honoring B6's policy. It took literally two hours going back and forth between AMEX and B6 to process a refund for downgrade of service.

Just an update on this one ... I booked the original deal on JFK-LAS for a trip in June and unsurprisingly they did just make some schedule changes for June, including changing the outbound ~7pm evening flight from a Mint A321 to a no-Mint A321, but I was able to change to the later flight which now has Mint for free by contacting JetBlue. Annoyingly the later flight gets in after midnight, which is later than I would prefer, but at least we can get a nap on the plane on the way there.

There's now Mint on ~10pm flights out of both JFK and EWR, while the early evening flights from both airports lack it, which seems like it could be better coordinated to offer a wider variety of options to passengers, but oh well.

I also see that the newly added EWR-LAS Mint service is available for $374 each way on a variety of dates in June and July, which is nearly as good a deal.

Now to see how to speculatively book JFK-LAX on a cheap fare that gets changed to the new Mint Studio Suites....

The cheapest JFK-LAX I fare these days is $650 one way. Additionally, I inventory is not widely available on all flights--certain popular flights may never have I open up at any point, and I'd expect flights with the new Mint suites to fall under that category.

The $549 fare for JFK-LAX has wide availability for May & onwards and that fare has a 21 day advance purchase requirement.
If you are looking for a discount fare on a last minute ticket, don't expect that.

Not sure where you're seeing $549. The lowest I can find is $648 in May, June, and July. Inventory is getting scarce in May already.

Although not offered on JetBlue.com, the AA codeshare flights under the B6 code has $549 flights available.
You are correct that B6 metal flights start from $648.
