The US low-cost airline JetBlue has renewed its premium flight class called “Mint” to London and claims that these changes will make transatlantic premium class air travel an experience like no other.
Travelers will enjoy this experience aboard an Airbus A321, which will be equipped with 22 individual Mint suites, and two first-class “Mint Studio” seats in the front.
The Mint suites will feature 17-inch tilting Thales “Avant” screens, wireless charging capability, a built-in phone shelf, easily accessible power, and plenty of room to store personal items like shoes and purses.
For its part, the Mint Studio seat will feature 22-inch screens that tilt back, an additional side table, and a guest seat. JetBlue claims that this seat is the “pinnacle of space and privacy, and the largest sleeper seat of any US airline.”
All seats will feature direct aisle access, sliding doors for privacy, and cushions designed by mattress company Tuft & Needle, which will also provide blankets, memory foam pillows, mask nap kits, and earplugs.
The “Mint” experience debuted in 2014, and JetBlue called it a new way to travel in superior class at a “non-premium” price.
“Mint was an idea to make premium travel across the United States more affordable, and its performance has exceeded even our most optimistic expectations of going beyond New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco”, said Joanna Geraghty, President, and Chief Operating Officer of JetBlue.
