This week, JetBlue unveiled a new soft product for its premium Mint class, including new menus, Yesterday, I flew JetBlue Mint from Los Angeles to West Palm Beach to check it out…and was once again reminded that JetBlue is simply the best of the best when it comes to a domestic premium product.
New JetBlue Mint Product is A – M – A – Z – I – N – G
When I first learned of the Mint refresh, my heart sank. Would JetBlue ruin what was already near-perfect in terms of in-flight soft product? Thankfully, the answer is no. If anything, the new product is better than before.
The new headphones from Master & Dynamic:
I’m told, though, these are interim while waiting for another model from the same company.
New amenity kits:
(ok, the amenity kits are a downgrade)
But most of all, new menus, food, drink, glasses, cups.
JetBlue suspended coffee service for awhile due to COVID-19 concerns, but has brought it back. Oh how nice it was to start a flight out with a strong cappuccino in a ceramic cup with a hot, flaky pastry.
Breakfast was a feast, with lovely avocado toast, a leek & ricotta quiche, and lemon soufflé pancakes. The cabin was not full and I also enjoyed macerated strawberries and coconut yogurt during the flight. The new cocktails were lovely too, though I think the espresso before landing hit the spot most of all.
And then of course there is still an amazing suite with closing door, plenty of storage, and three places to charge your devices. Service was also superb.
JetBlue for the win…
Next week I’ll publish a full review…I happened to be on the inaugural flight from Los Angeles to West Palm Beach (I had no idea when booking), the first Mint service to PBI. It has been awhile since I’ve been on JetBlue Mint and I was reminded again why JetBlue is simply the best.
