Round-trip flights to Jamaica in business and first class from $620 – The Points Guy

Jamaica is a beach-lovers paradise, with crystalline waters, palm trees and perfect weather. It's especially alluring with today's deal for travel from August through February.
The best Jamaica beach weather is from November through February, which means that there's a four-month period of overlap with these discounted flight rates.
You can find flights to the capital city of Kingston in business class and first class for less than $1,000 from 27 U.S. cities for the next three days.
Flights on Caribbean Airlines and American Airlines will be nonstop in business class. Flights on Delta Air Lines will be in the first-class cabin, with a layover in Atlanta. All three options will include two checked bags free of charge, as well as one carry-on and one personal item.

The price advertised on Google Flights is often a little lower because it offers third-party booking sites as an option.
We recommend booking directly through the airline for a better guarantee you will get help if something goes wrong. So, we recommend spending a little more to get the $777 ticket direct from Caribbean Airlines.
For example, you could book this round-trip flight departing on January 14, 2023, and returning on January 21, 2023, for $777.
As mentioned above, all the flights in this deal should include two free checked bags, a personal item and a carry-on.
The final price as reflected on the Caribbean Airlines website is $777.42, with the fare itself being $568 but taxes, fees and other charges amounting to an additional $209.42.
The Caribbean Airlines website is not the most user-friendly, which is why having an idea of what you want to book helps. You’ll likely have to input all the details yourself once you’re redirected, so keep the Google Flights tab open to refer back to.
Remember to use a card that earns bonus points on airfare purchases, such as The Platinum Card® from American Express, which earns five points per dollar on airfare booked directly with the airline or through American Express Travel on up to $500,000 on these purchases per calendar year. The Citi Premier® Card and Chase Sapphire Reserve earn three points per dollar on airfare, and the American Express® Gold Card also earns three points per dollar on airfare when booked directly with the airline or through Amex Travel. The Chase Sapphire Preferred Card earns two points per dollar on travel. Check out this post for more on maximizing airfare purchases.
