JetBlue’s Mint service is coming to the Caribbean. What is Mint? It’s a special section of the airline’s Airbus A321 planes that allows passengers to turn their seat into a flat bed. The section also includes a 15-inch monitor, along with beauty products supplied by Birchbox. It also has tapas on the menu and an espresso maker!
As you may recall, Mint was initially unveiled back in the summer of 2014.
“Mint’s curated offering and personalized service continues to win over customers who have grown weary of legacy carriers’ tired premium offering,” said Marty St. George, executive vice president commercial and planning, JetBlue, in a press release. “Even better, these Airbus A321s with Mint offer a redesigned core cabin with enhanced entertainment features and more comfortable seating for every customer onboard.”
The routes include Boston to Aruba, New York to St. Lucia, New York to St. Maarten, among other locations. Check the JetBlue website for more information about which routes are offering Mint.
Starting on October 20, 2016, Mint will be offered on flights from Boston to Los Angeles.
