BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - July 10, 2014) - JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) today announces special Blue Barrel fares for nonstop travel between Boston and destinations in the Lone Star state including Austin (AUS), Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) and Houston (HOU). Customers can save big on direct flights between Texas and Boston with fares equal to the price of a barrel of crude oil as of the close of the market on July 9, 2014.
