JetBlue first started flying Mint between New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco, but has since expanded its offerings to cross-country flights from Boston and Fort Lauderdale to LA, San Francisco and Seattle. Mint remains TPG’s favorite way of going cross-country. Better yet, JetBlue often offers extremely competitive business-class fares that are typically lower than the competition even though Mint is a superior product.
