DSC_0670JetBlue Airways announced the launch of its Mint premium service on its route between New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport and San Francisco International Airport.

Mint offers passengers a premium cabin with a fully lie-flat seat.  Four seats in the cabin are private suites with doors.  The seats in the private suites are 22” wide and extend into an 80”-long bed.  The remaining 12 seats in the cabin are 20.5” wide.

Seat features include air cushions with adjustable firmness, massage, an area for shoe storage, two 110-volt electrical outlets, and two USB ports.  Each seat has a 15” flat screen with 100 DirectTV channels as well as 100 stations from SiriusXM satellite radio.

JetBlue’s in-flight service includes a pre-departure drink, an amuse bouche after take-off, and a choice of five dishes served tapas style.  The meal features Marble Ice Cream and fresh bakery desserts.

Each passenger will receive a Birchbox amenity kit (with a choice of men’s or women’s), and each seat has a “wake me for service” indicator that allows passengers to sleep uninterrupted if desired.

JetBlue is operating Mint service on new A321 aircraft, which also offer a new seat in coach with a 10.1” personal video monitor and the same choice of television and satellite radio programs.  The seats also have power outlets and a cup holder.

The first five rows of coach are part of the airline’s premium economy lite offering, Even More Space, and have a seat pitch between 37” and 41”. All coach seats are 18” wide.

JetBlue first launched its Mint service between JFK and LAX on June 15.
