Surprised to hear this. Ever since the late 2000s (with the addition of SW and JetBlue's rapid expansion there), Logan was almost always cheaper.

Depending on your destination, Providence (Green) can be cheaper than Boston (Logan).

That's because for you, money is not the greatest issue. For many others, who live hand-to-mouth, or in the red, they will save at all costs.

I have employees that live both north and south of the city and travel frequently. I give them the option of traveling from where ever is most convenient for them. While there are certainly exceptions, I find that their flights out of Green or Manchester are almost always more expensive than comparable options out of Logan. I have never seen them come up with a fare that that remotely compelled me to drive to one of those airports rather than fly out of Logan. In fact, quite the opposite, they often decide to trek into Logan for the more frequent and convenient schedules.

When I fly, I always check all three and typically find Logan is less expensive. Further, there are usually more options for convenient flight times. Lastly, I can easily get driven to Logan Express, the overall cost of travel from Logan is less expensive.

I just checked on a trip to Phoenix I have planned for later this year. BOS is about 15% less expensive than either MHT or PVD and it is non-stop versus one stop for the other airports.

I fly out of T F Green as I live in RI but my sister law, also in RI, usually flies out of Boston because she can get non stop flights to her destinations. And Jet Blue flies out of Logan too.

In my experience 90% of the time PVD is not cheaper or is slightly cheaper but has significantly worse flight times/options.

Flying into Logan can be a little strange with prices. If prices are high and you have to pay it, just fly first class instead. Trust me, the prices aren't that much higher then an overpriced coach fare. Southwest prices aren't that great when you are flying a longer flight (more than 2 hours domestic) and Spirit as hard as they try is a pretty bad flight. I'm not saying American or Delta is that much better, but it is what it is, so don't expect a luxury service.

I think I said this in another thread, but Logan in general is a pretty bad airport. Actually most of the northeast airports are pretty bad and horrible to get in and out of, but I have to deal with it a few times a year.

Spirit isn't that bad, just expect to pay for any extras. We paid for the big seats and had a good trip to Vegas last year. I've had worse experiences with JetBlue, ymmv.

It's really not. I would take it any day over JFK, LGA, DCA, MIA, LAX, STL...just to name a few I am familiar with.

Parking is a joke, yes.
