Yeah, it would probably be 2-2.5 hour haul to Boston from Claremont. That would be no fun.

That's quite the travel day. Yeah, it will be about an hour to Boston, and then. 3 hour flight, so 4 travel hours, which is still a lot with two little ones. Luckily, they do love to travel so they make it easier.

On the plus side - with the time difference it'll be like I've only travelled for 4 or 5 hrs 👍

is SW nonstop out of MHT? I might be tempted to apply for the SW credit card to get the points, but they don't fly nonstop out of Logan.

Yes, you can fly non stop on SW out of MHT.

i checked out the JB and Delta credit card offers and they're horrible compared to SW. The amount of points you get for opening isn't enough for even 1 ticket. With SW's 50,000 I could get the 4 of us one-way flights........... BUT, do I want to deal with traveling to MHT (hour away, how would we get there or home) to get a non-stop flight , or do I want to deal with just going to Boston but having to change planes (I loathe stopping, always fly non-stop). I'm not crazy about either of those options, lol.

There's a hotel called the Highlander right next to the airport that offers fairly cheap and secure vacation parking, with a very nice shuttle to the terminals. We use them for every trip. It makes things much easier, lol.

My flights out of Boston on Jet Blue are non stop.
There were plenty of non stop options...or are you talking about SW having no non-stop?

I'm bummed I won't get any rapid reward points for this trip, but I'm happy with the savings. Sometimes sacrifice is needed.

I think they leveled the Highlander Inn, The airport purchased the property late 2011. I was going to park there myself for our April 13 trip -

This is true, it was taken down in 2011.
