St. Maarten News – JetBlue is expanding its Mint premium-cabin service to flights from New York to St. Lucia and St. Maarten as well as from Boston to Aruba, effective Nov. 5 through spring 2017.
The flights will operate weekly, but will increase to a daily roundtrip to each destination in peak holiday periods.
Customers flying the Mint service, which was introduced in June 2014, enjoy signature cocktails; lie-flat seats with massage function and cushion-firmness selector; a Birchbox amenities kit; a 15-inch touchscreen TV; and a tapas-style menu by Saxon + Parole. Some of the seats are “pods” with doors that close for privacy.
Mint fares start at $599 each way.
JetBlue will again offer seasonal weekly Mint service from New York to Aruba and between Boston and Barbados, Nov. 5 through next spring. Mint service between New York and Barbados, launched in fall 2015, will continue to operate year-round on Saturdays.
On the domestic front, JetBlue has set Oct. 20 as the launch date of its daily Mint service between Boston and Los Angeles. In November, the schedule will be upped to three daily roundtrips.
