US budget carrier JetBlue has unveiled a new version of its Mint premium seating which it hopes to use when it launches transatlantic flights.
The airline has marketed its Mint cabin class, introduced in 2014, as “a fresh take on premium travel at an ‘unpremium’ price”.
Its latest iteration – which will debut on its yet-to-be-confirmed flights from the US to London – includes 24 private seats with sliding doors. A 16-seat layout will be used on domestic flights between New York and Los Angeles.
“Mint was an idea to make premium travel across the US less stuffy and more affordable, and its performance has exceeded even our most optimistic expectations of going beyond New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco,” said Joanna Geraghty, president and chief operating officer of JetBlue.
“It’s remarkable how Mint’s thoughtful design has resonated with customers as we successfully grew it to more than 30 routes. We put our heart into this redesign of Mint and were inspired by our original vision of offering customers an exceptional experience at a lower fare – which is what JetBlue is all about.”
The seats have a tilting 17-inch screen, wireless charging capabilities, a phone ledge, in-seat power, and laptop, shoe and handbag stowage.
