Disclosure: I attended a reception at Boston’s Logan International Airport to learn about the new Mint service. I did not receive monetary compensation for this post. All opinions are my own.
JetBlue has just launched their Mint premium service in the Boston market, with year-round service to San Francisco and Barbados. The service will also be available between Boston and Los Angeles starting in October.
These routes will be operated on JetBlue’s new Airbus A321 aircraft. The Mint cabin offers 16 lie-flat beds. Rows 1, 3, and 5 are in a 2×2 seat configuration, and rows 2 and 4 are in a private 1×1 configuration. Currently, there is no cost difference between the 2×2 and the 1×1 configurations.
Here are the other features of Mint:
- Seats offer air cushions with adjustable firmness and massage functionality
- Completely lie-back beds (up to 6 ft 8 inches) with a relax (partially reclined) position
- Dual 110 volt power outlets and 2 USB ports at each seat
- Seats 20.7 ‘ wide for the 2×2 configuration and 22.3’ wide for the 1×1 configuration
- Pre-departure drink, in-flight cocktail, and amuse bouche
- Meal choice of three items among five options, all curated by NYC’s Saxon + Parole
- Desserts from Blue Marble and a sweets box from Mah-ze-Dahr Bakery
- Men and Women’s amenity kits from Birchbox
- Fresh cappuccino and espresso
- Specially curated wine from JetBlue’s wine expert
These new Airbus A321 planes also offer a new “marketplace” between the Mint and Core cabins. The marketplace is loaded with cool beverages and packaged snacks that all travelers can take at their leisure. Beverage and snack service will still be offered- so the marketplace is for additional in-flight snacks and drinks.
Mint service debuted in 2014 on service from NYC and Los Angeles, San Francisco, Barbados, and Aruba (seasonal). To learn more, visit the JetBlue website. You can also read our experience on JetBlue Getaways here.
