One airline trolled Atlanta as airlines announced they’re adding flights from Boston to the Super Bowl
"Hey New England – we just added a few more flights to Atlanta for the big game. More than 3. Fewer than 28."
Airlines are boosting the number of flights from Boston’s Logan Airport to Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport for fans looking watch the New England Patriots take on the Los Angeles Rams at the 2019 Super Bowl.
And one airline couldn’t resist teasing Atlanta a little in the process.
After the Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday to win the AFC Championship, JetBlue tweeted, “Hey New England – we just added a few more flights to Atlanta for the big game. More than 3. Fewer than 28.”

Of course, the Atlanta Falcons blew a 28-3 lead over the Patriots in the 2017 Super Bowl.
The real deal is that JetBlue is adding nearly 2,000 seats between Boston and Atlanta over Super Bowl weekend by adding up to eight round-trip flights daily between the two cities from Feb. 1 through Feb. 4 and by using the airline’s larger Airbus A321 aircraft on the route, according to a company statement. JetBlue is Logan Airport’s largest carrier.
Other airlines increasing flights between Boston and Atlanta the weekend of the big game include Southwest and Delta. The additional flights for those airlines begin on Feb. 1, as well.
