Over the weekend the LA Rams and the New England Patriots won their respective championship games to seal their places at Super Bowl LIII which is due to be played in Atlanta on 3 February.
Once the Super Bowl line up was complete it didn’t take Delta or JetBlue too long to respond on social media:

These flights are now on sale on Delta.com
JetBlue doesn’t offer non-stop service between Los Angeles and Atlanta so, unsurprisingly, the extra flights it’s adding will be from Boston….but I can’t tell you what these flights are!
Rather unhelpfully, the link in the JetBlue tweet which announced the extra flights was just a link to a regular booking page with no details of the extra flights…. and the airline hasn’t posted any updates on its media news page either (at the time of writing).
Still, a basic search on JetBlue.com will show you what flights are available and I guess most people won’t care if they’re “special” flights or not.
At this point I should probably do the sensible thing and wish both teams good luck and leave it there….but I can’t do that.
GO RAMS! 🙂
