New York, New York (PRWEB) February 03, 2014
This year, JetBlue launches Mint, a new transcontinental, First Class product and Jake Redman, founder of travel upgrade review site ModHop.com, will be there to give travelers an exciting first look. Redman, whose website is the premiere site for reviews of travel upgrades, will live tweet throughout the flight from New York City to Los Angeles on the Airbus A321. Redman plans to take pictures and video to give travelers the most accurate idea of where JetBlue’s new First Class lies in comparison to other products already on the market.
The new Mint cabin features sixteen lie-flat seats, four of which are mini suites that include their own door, a first in domestic flight. JetBlue’s First Class seats also boast greater length, adjustable firmness and massage features. In addition, high-profile partners Birchbox and Saxon & Parole will craft the amenity kits and menu, respectively. This, along with complimentary alcoholic beverages, high-speed in-flight Internet, and even an espresso/ cappuccino machine built specifically for air travel, what JetBlue is calling “the Mint experience” surely sounds impressive—Jake Redman will fill travelers in on whether or not it is truly as good as it seems.
“On July 17, 2014, I’ll be sharing pictures, video, and commentary from JetBlue’s new Mint First class cabin, giving travel junkies a first look at the features of the Airbus A321 from New York to Los Angeles,” says Redman, who will also post about new offerings in economy. These rumored features include new seats, and will be exclusive to select transcontinental routes.
JetBlue hopes to add several more daily JFK-LAX flights this year, and to have as many JFK-SFO flights by early next year. Notes Redman, “Whether JetBlue’s Mint is a success will rely heavily on the consumer. I hope my first look gives potential ones the information they need to determine if it’s the trans-con flight experience for them.”
ModHop.com will be setting up a special page for the trip, where visitors can see all of the tweets, vines, Instagram photos, and more, in a single location.
