JetBlue – currently the sixth largest airline in the U.S. — is known for its industry-leading core experience, which allows every customer to have the most legroom in coach (a), live television and on-demand entertainment on every seatback, free and fast Fly-Fi broadband internet (b), complimentary snacks and soft drinks and award-winning customer service. The airline has continued to push boundaries and deliver a best-in-class experience in their core cabin across its fleet including:

  • Airbus A321 Long Range (LR): Reimagined for transatlantic flying, this aircraft offers customers attentive, boutique-style service, while also ensuring ample personal space, larger overhead bins, customized lighting and a design that gives the cabin a wide-body feel. All of the comforts JetBlue customers have come to expect are further enhanced by the airline’s partnership with New York-based restaurant group Dig to bring its signature build-your-own dining concept to tray tables at 35,000 feet – JetBlue’s first complimentary meal in core.
  • Airbus A321neo with Mint: JetBlue’s first aircraft to feature its reimagined Mint® premium experience, with 16 fully lie-flat, private suites and elevated core experience with 144 core seats, including seven rows of Even More Space seating. The residential design choices set a new standard for transcontinental flying with every aspect of the aircraft meticulously customized to create a perfect environment to deliver JetBlue’s award-winning service, including a re-designed self-service snack and beverage area, The Pantry®, and much more.
  • Airbus A220: A next-generation aircraft, JetBlue’s A220 combines style and substance with its game-changing economics and custom-created cabin design. The aircraft’s strong economics and operational performance are a key to JetBlue’s long-term cost performance, while also enabling more sustainable flying, greater flexibility to support JetBlue’s network strategy, and the introduction of its all-new onboard experience to more customers. A first for the airline, it includes a two-by-three seating configuration, custom LED mood lighting onboard and 140 seats with an expanded width, offering the widest seats for a single aisle aircraft and across JetBlue’s fleet.

This recognition comes as JetBlue announces a new TrueBlue® program, and continues to expand its transatlantic network, recently announcing plans to launch nonstop service to Paris.
