The meal service is attractive and healthy, but leaning a bit towards our west coast trendy look. (Virgin is the same).
Questions for JetBlue-ers:
Does JetBlue ever have specials on First Class (Mint) pricing? Virgin is generally very expensive unless you get a 40% off special, which appears from time to time.
Also, are the single seats priced the same as the doubles?
NASBWI wrote:As far as I know, there are no "deals" per se, re: Mint cabin. However, their competitive pricing (fares generally start at $599ow, or sometimes $499 from certain stations) keeps demand stimulated for a premium product at a more affordable price. I'm sure there are fares higher than that on other airlines for economy tickets, depending on when you book, for the same city pairs that are served by Mint.
As for the single seats, yes: the single seat "suite" is priced the same and is assigned on a first-come, first-serve basis.

However, having said that, I think JetBlue actually manage to pull it off convincingly! That was what the one thing I didn't like about Virgin America - they were just trying too hard.
