JetBlue will feature customizable meals and complimentary Wi-Fi for economy-class passengers when it launches its transatlantic service later this year, the carrier announced.
The flights also will feature use of a new Airspace by Airbus interior for single-aisle A321 aircraft and will include 114 seats in economy class with 32 inches of legroom and a width of 18.4 inches, which offers “customers more space and comfort in an economy experience than any carrier in the transatlantic market,” according to JetBlue. Four rows will have additional legroom of up to six inches.
Each seat also will feature a 10.1-inch 1080P high-definition screen with international live television channels and on-demand content.
Those screens also will enable passengers to customize meals, which JetBlue is providing with food service partner Dig. The flights will offer three main selections, such as roasted chicken thigh over herbed brown rice or spiced eggplant over coconut cauliflower quinoa, along with side options, according to the carrier. Morning departures will include both sweet and savory breakfast options.
JetBlue will offer complimentary Wi-Fi, as it does on all of its flights, which will make it the only carrier currently operating with that option on transatlantic routes.
“We know all too well the pain points of international flying: the dreaded center section, the choice of assembly-line chicken or beef, and the lack of connectivity,” JetBlue head of marketing and loyalty Jayne O’Brien said in a statement.
JetBlue announced a new version of its premium Mint product, which will feature more private suites and new “studios,” that will debut on its transatlantic flights as well.
