We realise value and choice is just as important in the Irish market as in the U.S. and are pleased to introduce our award-winning product to Irish customers.”

Mint boasts countless intuitive design touches that help every customer feel at home in the air. Mint customers enjoy delicious, restaurant-style small plates curated by Delicious Hospitality Group’s (DHG) popular New York City restaurants Charlie Bird, Pasquale Jones and Legacy Records. Their inventive culinary style and hospitality expertise brings the best inflight dining experience to Mint tray tables.

JetBlue’s industry-leading core experience offers a new level of service to customers who generally fly “coach” but still want a great experience at an attractive fare. Core customers enjoy a boutique-style experience no matter where they sit with the most legroom in coach(b) and a free selection of brand-name snacks, soft drinks, coffee, tea, beer, wine and liquor. In addition, JetBlue is working with its culinary partner DIG to design an innovative and high-quality complimentary meal offering specific to the A321neo that customers will love and will build on JetBlue’s product offering.

Customers in both core and Mint stay connected throughout the flight with fast, free and unlimited high-speed Fly-Fi©, and live TV(d). Additionally, customers have access to a robust selection of inflight entertainment, including exclusive content from JetBlue’s streaming partner, Peacock, on seatback screens at every seat.
