So what is the key selling point for economy class, an extra inch over most (standard) economy seats across the Atlantic?
For business class is a supposedly lower price the selling point? More competition is better, but I am still wondering what the hype is about.
More legroom, good food and booze (free), fast WiFi (free). Nice interior appearance and comfort. And good fares. And a decent blanket and amenity kit. It’s not a singular selling point. It’s a whole package/nice overall experience.
Everything you said free in economy? At lower fares? Then I definitely think they won’t be around long. Haha! Unless they pay their crew less than Ryanair.
If you take a look at this review. Things they offer currently in economy for free:
- 32 inch pitch and 18.4 inch width seat
- real blanket
- 2 amenity kits with masks, ear plus, dental kit, socks and moisturizers
- Real solid main meal with multiple courses + dessert
- Free Booze
- A breakfast before landing
- free high speed wifi
- 5 live tv channel on seatback IFE + 181 movies and 111 TV shows
here is a description of the business class from TPGhttps://thepointsguy.com/reviews/jetblu ... lr-london/
according to the reviewer
The airline had a larger selection of new releases than I’ve seen on other carriers recently, so there’s a good chance you’ll be able to find something that you haven’t seen.
I think their Y product is probably too luxurious, especially the meal service. Meal service could be a point of cost cutting. Maybe the amenity kit won't have real blanket in the future. As for the hard product and IFE, I don't see that changing. They have it on mint domestically.
The business hard product looks great. Once they get lounge situation resolved, it will be even better.
