Low cost carrier JetBlue plan to enter transatlantic route with mint seating


Our Thoughts

The Seattle Four Seasons location overlooks Elliott Bay and the Puget Sound, and the breathtaking views of the Olympic Mountains are a huge draw for many visitors.

The hotel also features modern Northwest-inspired design, a gorgeous infinity-edge pool and bar, and a 6,000 square foot spa that boasts a eucalyptus steam room. Four Seasons Seattle occupies the first ten floors of a 21-story residential high-rise, and offers guests an ultra-luxurious Seattle experience.

JetBlue has revealed details of its all new Mint business class product which will debut on the carrier’s flights to London, England planned for this summer.

There will be 24 private suites with sliding doors, featuring a customized Thompson Aero Vantage Solo seat in a herringbone configuration, with a 17-inch tilting IFE screen, wireless charging capabilities, an integrated phone ledge “for multitasking”, in-seat power, and laptop, shoe and handbag storage.

Need we say more?

The brand will also be providing sleep amenities including a convertible blanket with a built-in foot pocket, a memory foam lined pillow and pillowcase, and a snooze kit with a matching eye mask and earplugs.

JetBlue also reported that the front row of the aircraft will be taken up by two Mint Studios, which will offer an extra side table “for added productivity”, a 22-inch tilting IFE screen, and a guest seat which can be used by another passenger when the aircraft is at cruising altitude similar to British Airways concept in First class.

It’s reported that when reclined, the bed in the Mint Studio will be “the largest lie-flat bed of any US carrier” (based on total reclined bed surface area).


Other design features of the new Mint experience include:

  • Residential textures, such as flannel-covered privacy dividers, concrete lampshades, woodgrain table patterns and soft, vegan leather-covered seats and headrests.
  • Custom-created suite gradient panels bring light into the cabin, while patterned door shrouds with the signature Mint leaf make a bold brand statement in a functional way.
  • First-of-its-kind mood lighting enhances the inflight experience, and a welcoming blue floor arc helps direct the customer boarding flow.

The new products will be fitted to JetBlue’s single-aisle A321 LR aircraft which is the equipment slotted for this new route from the US east coast.

No details have yet been given on the configuration of the rest of the aircraft And there’s still no firm date for the launch of the carrier’s transatlantic flights.
