JetBlue Launches All-Suite Transatlantic Business Class
Ahead of the launch of its eagerly-anticipated transatlantic New York to London flights this summer, JetBlue unveils a new iteration of its award-winning Mint business class, which features an upgraded all-suite 24-seat cabin layout.
"Mint was an idea to make premium travel across the US less stuffy and more affordable, and its performance has exceeded even our most optimistic expectations of going beyond New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco," said JetBlue President and Chief Operating Officer Joanna Geraghty in a statement.
"It’s remarkable how Mint’s thoughtful design has resonated with customers as we successfully grew it to more than 30 routes. We put our heart into this redesign of Mint and were inspired by our original vision of offering customers an exceptional experience at a lower fare–which is what JetBlue is all about."
The new Mint business class features a herringbone configuration, a door for every suite, 17-inch seatback screens, wireless charging capabilities, and thoughtful space design, including an integrated ledge for your phone and storage space for laptops, shoes, and handbags.
For an extra-premium flight experiences, customers can book one of two Mint Studios, which offer the most personal space on any US airline. The two front-row seats feature 22-inch tilting Thales Avant seatback screens, an extra side table, a guest seat, and the largest lie-flat bed on any US airline.
The seat itself was created in collaboration with mattress company Tuft & Needle and the interior of the Mint business class suite features cozy textures: flannel-covered privacy screens, concrete lampshades, and woodgrain surfaces.
JetBlue announced last year it plans to launch transatlantic flights to London in late 2021.
