JetBlue Airlines is known for its low-cost and customer-centric approach to flying. However, with the introduction of their Mint Business Class, they have upped their game in providing a luxurious travel experience. Let’s take a closer look inside JetBlue’s Mint Business Class.
The Birth of Mint
In 2013, JetBlue announced the launch of Mint, their premium business-class offering. This was a major move for the airline as they had previously only offered economy and standard first-class cabins. The decision to introduce Mint came after years of research and planning to compete with other airlines’ premium offerings.
One of the standout features of Mint is its lie-flat seats, which are only available in select rows on certain aircraft. These seats offer a 6-foot 8-inch sleeping space, complete with a cushioned mattress, and are designed for maximum comfort during long flights. They also come equipped with adjustable headrests and lumbar support for added relaxation.
JetBlue takes entertainment seriously, even in their business-class cabins. Mint offers a 15-inch flat-screen TV with over 100 channels, including live sports and news. Passengers can also enjoy complimentary premium headphones for an enhanced viewing experience.
Mint passengers are treated to a gourmet dining experience, with menus designed by award-winning chefs. The menu changes every season and features locally sourced ingredients for maximum freshness.
