JetBlue Airways announced that it plans to launch weekly Mint service on flights between Boston and St. Lucia, as well as between New York City and Liberia, Costa Rica.

Boston-St. Lucia service is scheduled to begin on November 3, while New York-Liberia service will begin on December 15.

Boston-St. Lucia flights will depart Boston’s Logan International Airport at 7:30 a.m. on Saturdays and arrive at St. Lucia’s Hewanorra International Airport at 12:19 p.m. Flights from St. Lucia will depart at 1:44 p.m. and arrive in Boston at 6:59 p.m.

Flights from New York will depart at 10:25 a.m., also on Saturdays, and arrive at Daniel Oduber Quirós International Airport at 2:49 p.m. Flights from Liberia to New York are scheduled to depart at 4:15 p.m. and arrive at 10:14 p.m.

Mint offers passengers a premium cabin with fully lie-flat seats on JetBlue’s Airbus A321s.  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 in a 2-2 configuration and 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 access to 100 DirectTV channels as well as 100 stations from SiriusXM satellite radio.

JetBlue’s in-flight service in Mint includes a pre-departure drink, an amuse bouche

JetBlue operates Mint service on a sub-fleet of A321 aircraft that, in addition to the lie-flat seats up front, also offer seats in coach with a 10.1” personal video monitor and the same choice of television and satellite radio programs.  The seats provide 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 in June 2014, and on its New York-San Francisco route in October of that year.
