JetBlue is expected to begin nonstop service between Boston and New York City to London in their third quarter between July 1 and September 30, 2021. When those flights begin, JetBlue’s Mint Service (the airline’s business class service) will take to the air featuring one of the largest beds available to customers.
The airline’s A321neos new “Mint Studio” (shown below) will consist of two mini-rooms at the front of its newest planes, each with a comfortable seat that turns into its own fully flat bed behind a privacy door with an adjoining sofa that, with the seat, converts to one of the largest beds in the air. Behind those come 22 “Mint Suites”, minus the adjoining sofa.
Reviews of the new Mint Studio are enough to make anyone who has taken long night flights drool with envy. The company put a lot of thought behind the comfort and design with details like wireless charging, multiple power points, space to work while eating, a tuft & needle mattress, and other thoughtful touches that other U.S. airlines don’t come close to offering.
For those of you patiently (or not so patiently) waiting until it is safe to travel again, this may be a tempting treat for your next flight to London. While the seats will certainly be costly (I couldn’t find any information on pricing), JetBlue traditionally offers more competitive pricing than traditional carriers.
