LAX-BOS on jetBlue Mint

I'm off today for a company function in Montréal.  And without Mrs. SFO777 this time, I'm not constrained by having to fly nonstop... especially at inflated rip-off prices on a crap plane and crap airline, aka Air Canada.   jetBlue recently started LAX-BOS Mint service and current fares are much more attractive than LAX-JFK.  Add in a cheap BOS-YUL connecting flight and it was a very economical and much more comfortable way to get to Montréal.

Mint Closed Door Suite 4A


jetBlue Mint is one of my favorite transcon premium products.   My biggest complaint is the lack of a lounge of any kind, although it was a non-issue today as I got to the gate about 10 minutes before boarding.   

jetBlue Mint is jetBlue's attractive modern premium cabin.  Five rows with 16 total seats are staggered with rows 1, 3 and 5 having 2-2 seating.  Rows 2 and 4 are the primo rows with single throne like seats and a closed door.

My seat today is 4A, a single seat closed door suite.

Welcome note from our Mint FAs today, Chase and Alberto, who provided outstanding service. 

jetBlue's signature RefreshMint drink, with vodka.

Today's eclectic jetBlue amenity kit.

Lots of meh.  

The gloves were fun at least for a photo op.  LOL.

We puahed on time and we're off.

Love the taro chips and green aoili instead of everyone's else's mixed nuts.

Showtime, jetBlue style.

jetBlue offers you a choice of 3 of 5 different dishes.   

Grilled rib-eye with horseradish mash potaties, broccolini, carrots, shallots and bordelaise sauce.

Pan-Fried Halibut with fingerling gratin, white aspargus and red pepper sauce.

Yuzu Caesar salad with baby gem, haricots verts, parmesan and sourdough breadcrumbs.

For dessert, ice cream from Coolhaus in LA.

And more dessert.  LOL.

Raiding the snack basket.

And more.  A departing gift.

Yet another great jetBlue flight, with wonderful service from Chase and Alberto.
