While air travel will always have the time-saving trump card over railways, one has to admit the luxury of space that railways enjoy is incomparable too. While most airlines will agree to that and hang their heads, the Jetblue Mint class will beg to differ, and it has everything that railways don’t, not even most airlines. It’s time to bid farewell to the by-product of long-haul flights- tiredness. The JetBlue Mint seat is an entire suite, a refreshing new take on premium first-class suites. Launched in June 2021, the suite includes 16 fully lie-flat cabins with a sliding door.
The exciting new option is now a 24-seat layout on the Airbus A321 Long Range aircraft, which services flights between New York-JFK and London Heathrow, and London Gatwick airports. Flying JetBlue Mint will bring to flyers the mintiest possible experience mid-air! From a tilting 17-inch seat-back screen to wireless charging capabilities to charge your devices on the go, a must-have phone ledge, in-seat power, and small-item stowage, there is everything you may or may not need for a comfortable journey. The dedicated storage and nooks can accommodate your shoes, a laptop, and more.
Did we mention an entire Tuft & Needle sleep experience with memory foam cushions, memory foam pillow, eye mask and earplugs, and a customizable blanket that helps you to sleep like a log? Plus, the new front-row Mint Studio boasts a giant TV on a U.S. airline, a whopping 22″. Mariya Stoyanova, JetBlue’s director of product development, says, “It was a new take on premium travel, offering a luxury experience. We didn’t anticipate what type of success it would have. It became an obsession for many people.”
She continued, “We decided to do a deeper dive this time. We wanted the flight to be a natural progression of how people live on the ground.” With Mint, you’ll have access to a dedicated check-in queue and expedited security lane. The culinary fare will be a tad bit better, too, if that’s even possible. Flyers can savor pineapple French toast or smoked trout for breakfast and ceviche or beef tenderloin for dinner. They will bid adios with beautiful memories of a fantastic flying experience and a bag of premium chocolate-covered cashews.
