JetBlue's New York - Palm Springs service to get longer season, larger aircraft & more mint!

Longer Season, Larger Aircraft & More Mint

JetBlue has announced this week that it was enhancing its operations to the fantastically vibrant and fun in the sun destination of Palm Springs, California. Not only has the carrier announced it will start a service from Boston's Logan Airport, but it will also extend the seasonal service from New York and it on large aircraft to the route.
JetBlue confirms it will extend the Palm Springs flying season from New York JFK through Memorial Day 2019, a month later than typically offered in previous years. This comes as the airline prepares to launch JetBlue’s fourth season of service more than a month earlier than in previous seasons on 10th October 2018.

Additionally, in response to strong customer demand, JetBlue will operate its all-Core Airbus A321 aircraft on the New York-Palm Springs route daily during the peak of the season from 14th February 2019 through to 30th April 2019. The larger aircraft will offer up to 50 additional seats in each direction every day. JetBlue’s A321 with the airline’s new core experience features 10-inch television screens offering free entertainment, comfortable seats with the most legroom in coach (b) and power outlets accessible to all customers. All A321 aircraft offer JetBlue's free Fly-Fi high-speed broadband internet service (a), access to JetBlue's Hub content on personal devices and on-demand first-run Hollywood movies.

Lastly, JetBlue has added additional Saturday Mint flights between New York-JFK and Palm Springs during peak travel weekends in January and February 2019. Like previously announced Palm Springs Mint service – which is set to operate daily over the holiday peak between 20th December 2018 and 3rd January 2019 – the newly added Saturday Mint flights will operate as daylight flights in both directions in place of an evening and overnight service.
Mint offers a completely rethought design and a more personal approach to service, addressing the needs of the modern traveler. Mint showcases JetBlue’s exceptional hospitality from specially trained crewmembers. Favorite Mint features include lie-flat seating, a signature cocktail, a tapas-style menu by New York City restaurant Saxon + Parole, fresh espresso from the first purpose-built cappuccino machine for a U.S. airline, amenity kits by Hayward and Hopper, and dessert from local artisanal ice cream makers based in Mint cities.
