JetBlue has unveiled its new premium product called “Mint.” The airline will field the new seating only on flights between New York and San Francisco and New York and Los Angeles, beginning next June. Introductory fares JFK-LAX were offered for $499 round trip. JetBlue says regular round trip fareswill start at $599 with the roll out of the carrier’s regular summer schedule, which will be available for sale starting in November.

The new cabin configuration will feature lie-flat seats, including four mini-suites, a tapas-style menu by New York eaterie Saxon and Parole, and customized amenity kits from Birchbox. The new aircraft also includes upgraded coach class seating and, in a JetBlue first, inflight WiFi.

In an announcement at its New York headquarters this afternoon, CEO Dave Barger said that the new cabin was made possible by the acquisition of new Airbus A321 aircraft, which offers enough real estate for the carrier to offer a premium class on its transcontinental JFK-LAX and JFK-SFO services. First deliveries of the new aircraft will begin tomorrow, Barger said, although the new seating and IFE systems will have to undergo checks by the FAA before being approved for service.
