JetBlue is about to make the friendly skies a little more comfortable.
In March, the airline unveiled its reimagined version of the Mint experience, marking the airline’s first complete redesign of Mint, this time for transatlantic flights.
“Mint was an idea to make premium travel across the U.S. 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,” Joanna Geraghty, president and chief operating officer, JetBlue, shared 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 redesign came thanks to the airline’s partnership with Acumen Design Associates. According to JetBlue, the first passengers to get to fly in the all-new Mint will come with the launch on JetBlue’s London flights this summer. A 16-seat layout will also debut on a limited number of flights between New York and Los Angeles in 2021.
Welcome to the suite life
The new Mint class aboard the airline’s A321 aircraft features 24 private suites, each with its own sliding door — the ultimate in airline privacy. Each seat also comes with a custom-designed seat cushion by Tuft & Needle, which folds into a lay-flatbed so passengers can snooze from takeoff to landing.
Your very own aisle-land
Each Mint Suite offers direct aisle access, a sliding door for privacy, a fully lie-flat seat built with Foam cushions, a memory foam pillow and a customizable blanket.
It’s all in the details
A large 17” TV, plenty of in-suite power and wireless charging, and customizable lighting are just a few of the touches to help make the most of your time. And, with dedicated storage and nooks for shoes, a laptop and more, stowing and organizing your stuff is in the bag.
Your own apart-mint
The spacious front-row Mint Studio features all the bells and whistles of our new Mint suites, plus the largest bed and TV (22”!) on a U.S. airline, a mirrored vanity, even more storage, and a guest seat and table—to work, lounge and entertain.
