JetBlue Airways has announced the start of its Mint service on flights from Boston Logan International Airport (BOS), making the carrier the only one in Boston to offer regularly-scheduled flights with fully lie-flat seating on domestic routes.
Service between Boston and San Francisco International Airport (SFO) got under way with one Mint flight offered in each direction. In the coming months, Mint will be offered on all three daily roundtrips between the two cities. This October, Mint service between Boston and Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) will take to the skies with up to three daily roundtrips eventually offered.
“JetBlue travellers in Boston are craving a premium experience and starting today they can experience service unlike anything offered by any other another airline at Logan,” declared Marty St George, executive vice-president commercial and planning at JetBlue. “Mint has been a game changer in the transcontinental market in New York and we can't wait for it to do the same in Boston.”
The aircraft on which Mint is featured have private suites, the longest fully-flat bed in the US domestic market, tapas-style dining, custom amenity kits, a 15-inch flat screen with 100+ channels of DIRECTV programming and more than 100 channels of SiriusXM satellite radio, plus free Fly-Fi broadband internet.
