JetBlue unveils new Mint business class

JetBlue’s business class, Mint, will have a brand new look when the airline launches its London to New York flights this summer.

The first complete redesign of Mint since its conception in 2014, done in partnership with Acumen Design Associates, sees 24 private suites with a sliding door for every Mint customer.

As part of the refresh, JetBlue will also introduce its latest innovation, the Mint Studio. The airline claims it will offer the most space in a premium experience from any U.S. airline. 

A 16-seat layout will debut on a limited number of flights between New York and Los Angeles later this year.

“Mint was an idea to make premium travel across the U.S. less stuffy and more affordable, and its performance has exceeded even our most optimistic expectation,” said Joanna Geraghty, JetBlue President and Chief Operating Officer.

“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.” 

Every Mint seat is layered with adaptive foam and a breathable cover to “create a cool and comfortable sleep experience”.

Passengers will also get a convertible blanket with a built-in foot pocket, a memory foam lined pillow with a pillowcase, and a snooze kit with a matching eye mask and earplugs.
