JetBlue sale saves the best stuff for their own site

Fares from Washington DC:

    JetBlue may share their fares with the O.T.A.'s, even discounted sale fares like today's But Wait, There's More! Sale. But does that mean the sale price you see on Orbitz or Kayak is the same you'll find on JetBlue's site? Uh, no. Not quite.

    Take, for example, Boston to Buffalo. We checked this route on both Kayak as well as Orbitz, and found it listed for $119 round-trip with taxes, as part of the current JetBlue sale.

    Not bad, but when we check the same dates, same sale on JetBlue, we get a fare of $79 round-trip, including taxes.

    JetBlue is beating their own sale price by $40! See? Yet another case of airlines saving their best fares for their own site.
