Nearly a year ago JetBlue Airways announced they were launching flights to Canada - more specifically Vancouver and that got me wondering as to when the flights would be starting up!, JetBlue has published those start dates and we'll see Vancouver-New York JFK launch in June 9 while Vancouver-Boston will launch on June 16. Both of these routes are available for purchase on JetBlue's site. The New York JFK flight will be operated with an Airbus A320 while the Boston flight will be an Airbus A220 - so unfortunately no Mint Products are available on these flights. That's too bad as the flights departing from Vancouver are redeyes and it would be great to have those Mint seats as an option!

 Here are the flight schedules:

Vancouver - New York Dep 11:30pm Arr 7:48am
New York - Vancouver Dep 6:59pm Arr 10:26pm
Vancouver - Boston Dep 10:05pm Arr 6:19am
Boston - Vancouver Dep 5:45pm Arr 9:04pm

One more American Express Cobalt Card Multiplier update for you. This one is Carmine's Pizzeria in North Calgary - we tried it out last week and not only the New York style pizza delicious, the restaurant codes properly as a 5x multiplier on the Cobalt Card! I have also removed Calgary's Bownesian Grocer from the list as that business is no longer around. Check out our American Express Cobalt™ Card Confirmed Multiplier Locations here.

World of Hyatt has introduced a new all-inclusive award chart designed for their nine all-inclusive resort brands, including Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara. The latter two have been part of the program but this new chart has been made as Hyatt slowly brings more than 100 locations on board from the AMR brand. Initially you can redeem points at 6 of these AMR locations in the Cancun area with more coming on board in May and months following that. Click here to learn more.

Here is the new all inclusive award chart for standard rooms:
