American Airlines and JetBlue Airways said Wednesday the two would expand their premium transcon service offerings to multiple new cities as part of their new Northeast Alliance.

JetBlue announced it would add new destinations for its Mint business-class service from New York’s John F. Kennedy International Newark Liberty International, and Boston Logan airports to include service from the three airports to four West Coast cities, namely Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle, plus Las Vegas.

In addition, American Airlines is introducing its Airbus A321T aircraft on flights between Boston and Los Angeles.  The A321T is the aircraft American uses on its premium transcon routes linking New York with San Francisco and Los Angeles and features a first-class cabin, Flagship First, featuring eight open suites in a 1-1 configuration as well as a business-class cabin, Flagship Business, with 20 lie-flat seats in a 2-2 configuration.

With their combined schedules between Boston and Los Angeles, the two airlines said they would operate more flights between the two cities than any other carrier.
