JetBlue Makes the Caribbean Even Fresher

JetBlue has announced that it will add its Mint cabin service to new Caribbean destinations.

Mint cabins offer private suites, a fully-­flat bed (JetBlue is the only U.S. airline offering lie-flat seating on its regular service to the Caribbean), and 15-­inch flat screen In-Flight Entertainment (IFE) screen with on-demand entertainment.

During the flight, Mint passengers are offered a signature cocktail, a tapas-­style menu, fresh espresso from an in-flight cappuccino machine, dessert from Blue Marble and Mah­ze­ Dahr Bakery. For personal comfort, the airline offers passengers Birchbox amenity kits.
