IMGP4661JetBlue Airways announced that it will offer its Mint service on flights between Boston and San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Barbados next year.

Beginning in March 2016, the airline will offer up to three daily Mint flights between Boston Logan and San Francisco International Airport.  Also in March 2016, JetBlue will begin one weekly Mint service to the Caribbean, with Saturday flights to Barbados.

This will be followed by up to three daily Mint round trips between Boston and Los Angeles International Airport in the fall of 2016.

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 concludes with 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 operates Mint service on a sub-fleet of 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 on its New York-Los Angeles route last June, and on its New York-San Francisco route last October.
