JetBlue (JBLU) announced Thursday that starting on Oct. 26 it will adding more flights from New York’s John F. Kennedy airport to destinations in California through its “Mint Class” of flights, which are cheaper than typical first-class excursions.
The move will make coast-to-coast flying more affordable for those still seeking a luxury experience, the company boasted in a release. That’s because there will be up to six flights between New York and San Francisco, as well as a ramped up offering of flights (as many 10 daily) to Los Angeles.
“In just one year, Mint has taken off in a way that we never imagined and we’re thrilled to bring even more Mint to customers who want to fly between JFK and the West Coast,” said Marty St. George, JetBlue’s executive vice president commercial and planning, in a statement.
“We’ve driven demand for Mint with low prices and the best premium experience in North America,” he added. “Whether it’s the touch of a handwritten note or their personalized attention to detail, customers rave about our inflight crewmembers who deliver a truly exceptional experience every day.”
On the airline’s website it currently prices a ticket from New York to Los Angeles, Calif., at $599 for a purchase made 30 days in advance.
