This week JetBlue kicks off its “Mint” preimium service on updated Airbus A321 planes flying between Seattle and Boston, offering passengers who purchase the upgraded fares lie-flat beds, plated tapas-style meal selections, Molly Moon ice-cream and other welcome amenities.
I rode along on the first flight out of Seattle. Here are some pics from the trip.
Mint cabin seating is set up with either single suites or side-by-side seating.
The single Mint suites have an extra-large storage cabinet for belongings you want to keep near by.
In addition to complimentary alcoholic drinks and a seletion of tapas-sized dishes, Mint service out of Seattle includes ice-cream made by local favorite, Molly Moon.
Economy class seating features upgraded seats with adjustable headrests and larger in-flight entertainment screens.
And for those who get hungry during the flight, there’s a serve-yourself pantry with plenty of complimentary snacks and soft drinks.
Not flying between Seattle and Boston? JetBlue will offer its Mint service from Seattle to NY’s JFK starting in mid-April.
