JetBlue’s business class product Mint is very well-regarded here at TPG. It has previously only been available on domestic flights within the United States, as well as some short-haul international flights.
That is all set to change as JetBlue has formally announced its first transatlantic flights between New York (JFK) and London’s Heathrow (LHR) from 11 August 2021 and Gatwick (LGW) from 29 September 2021.
The aircraft that will be flying these routes is its new A321LR aircraft with JetBlue’s brand new Mint Suite and Mint Studio business-class products, a significant upgrade over the already-stellar Mint product flying on JetBlue’s transcontinental routes. The new products were recently introduced on JetBlue’s A321neo, which will begin flying between New York and Los Angeles (LAX) this summer — you can check out a full tour here.
The 22 Mint Suites feature seats in a 1-1 herringbone layout, with seats angled slightly in towards the aisle. Each suite is fully enclosed and has a sliding door that closes all the way and features a 17-inch screen, plenty of storage spaces, and an integrated wireless phone charger.
The two Mint Studios at the front of the cabin have a ton of extra space, two windows, a belted side seat (so a travel companion can come and chat, or so you can move around a bit), and a 22-inch screen. The Studios will have a price premium over the Suite.
This product could be one of the best business class products on this, one of the world’s most profitable and competitive routes.
To celebrate the new flights, JetBlue has launched sale fares at very low prices on both economy and in Mint business class. It’s common to see nonstop flights in business class between London and New York for £3,000 plus return per person. As JetBlue also has an extensive route network from New York JFK, we’ve also found some destinations further south if you’d prefer. We’ve found slightly cheaper fares originating from Gatwick, compared with from Heathrow.
Note that the USA is not currently allowing Brits entry for tourism reasons though this may well change by the time these fares depart later this year. The USA is also currently on the amber list for returning visitors, meaning a period of self-isolation is required. Again, this may well change before these flights. You can cancel Mint bookings and receive a travel voucher for the value of the flights.
Book these flights directly with JetBlue as they are not showing on Google Flights as of the time of publication.
