Martini Review of the Week: 

Hope everyone had a nice Labor Day weekend! Here’s a recap of last week’s top news, deals, and reviews below.

United Airlines announced they’ll be launching new nonstop year-round service between San Francisco and Amsterdam; summer seasonal service between Newark and Naples, Italy beginning May 22, 2019; and summer seasonal service between Newark and Prague on June 6, 2019. See all the full details of their new routes.


Today the United States has three large airlines with a long history of continuous operations, extensive fleets, and expansive domestic and international routes, commonly called “the legacy carriers.” This includes United Airlines founded in 1931, American Airlines who started service in 1926, and Delta Airlines who flew their first passenger flight in 1929. See the history here: Overview of the Big Three Airlines in America.


In 2013, JetBlue introduced a business class product called Mint for their transcon routes that would shake up the transcon market. JetBlue uses Airbus A321 planes with 16 business class seats that could turn into a fully flat bed. Check out the details here: Flight Review: JetBlue Mint New York (JFK) – San Francisco.
