New York-based JetBlue has today revealed stunning new Transatlantic Mint Suites which will debut on the airline’s flights to London this summer.

There will be 24 private suites with sliding doors, featuring a customised Thompson Aer Vantage SOLO seat in a herring-bone 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. Even better, for those passengers in row 1 of the cabin, a brand new Mint Studio will offer more real estate and a bigger bed than any other US airline has today.

There is also a smaller layout of 16 seats that will appear on a limited selection of New York to Los Angeles services later this year.

The US carrier said that the seat would feature “Tuft and Needle’s proprietary T&N Adaptive foam and a breathable cover to create a cool and comfortable sleep experience unlike anything in the sky”.

The brand will also be providing sleep amenities including 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.

Jetblue also confirmed 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.

Other features of the new Transatlantic Mint Suites are:

  • Residential textures, such as flannel-covered privacy dividers, concrete lampshades, woodgrain table patterns and soft, vegan leather-covered seats and headrests, make customers feel at home in the air.
  • 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.

“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 expectations of going beyond New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. 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.”

said Joanna Geraghty, President and Chief Operating Officer, JetBlue.
