US airline JetBlue recently announced the details of its new Business Class, which it intends to fly between the US and Europe onboard Airbus A321LR aircraft. The aim is to debut the new product on flights between New York and London this Summer.
Once travel returns, it will likely be a very interesting proposition for transatlantic travellers. Not least because JetBlue is known for offering ‘game changing’ prices, as well as a good product.
There are actually two versions of the new Business Class product:
- Mint Studio
- Mint Suite
At the front of the cabin there will be a special Business Class, which JetBlue calls the ‘Mint Studio’. There will be more space and a seat so that companions can dine together.
The company Factorydesign has made the original design and it is based on a Thompson Aero SOLO seat. You can see above that row 1 gets quite a lot more space, and JetBlue have used that to create the Mint Studio.
In the same style, but with less space, there will be the standard Business Class – ‘Mint Suites’.
The cabin layout is 1-1 and therefore everyone has direct aisle access. The seats are arranged in a so-called “herringbone” pattern, where you sit with your head nearest the window and your legs towards the centre of the plane.
I’ve enjoyed my flights with JetBlue in America and was very interested to see what they are going to offer on transatlantic flights. The new products look great, but I really don’t like herringbone layouts – even if there is a door to the ‘suite/studio’.
What do you think about JetBlue’s Mint Suites and Mint Studios?
