JetBlue unveils Mint Studio for London flights

JeBlue has unveiled the new Business Class studios it will use on its flights to London due to start in 2021.

The airline will offer 24 of premium suites on the Airbus A321LR aircraft it will use on its flights connecting Boston and New York with London.

The new Business Class, called Mint, is a 1-1 layout. It has two sections: a single row with 2 Mint Studios and 11 rows of Mint Suites.

JetBlue has now unveiled details about the Mint Studio.

Mint Studio

Each aircraft will have two Mint Studios in the first row, providing ample room for working or relaxing, and featuring a 22 – inch tilting screen, an extra side table for added productivity, and a guest seat that can accommodate an additional Mint customer during flight at cruising altitude.

The Mint Studio was designed in partnership with Acumen Design Associates and utilizing materials from Tapis Corporation and its partner Ultrafabrics.

Mint Suite

The main cabin of Business has 22 seats in a 1-1 formation and each has:

JetBlue Mint Suites
  • a lie-flat seat with adaptive mattress
  • memory foam pillow
  • its own sliding door to provide privacy
  • a tilting 17-inch Thales AVANT seatback screen
  • wireless charging capabilities
  • an integrated phone ledge for multitasking
  • easy-to-reach in-seat power
  • laptop, shoe and handbag stowage

JetBlue is the first carrier to outfit its aircraft with Thompson Aero Seating’s VantageSOLO seat, the company’s revolutionary single aisle seating solution with a herringbone configuration developed and designed specifically for narrow – body aircraft and further customized for JetBlue.

Economy

The A321LR will have “just over” 100 coach seats, although JetBlue hasn’t settled on a final number.

Which London airport?

Jetblue haven’t announced which London airport it is flying into. We can probably assume it wants Heathrow but is getting Gatwick or possibly Stansted. And presumably it is working pretty hard to change that.

A smaller layout with 16 seats will debut on a limited number of flights between New York and Los Angeles later in 2021.
