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.
