Mint-aholics, rejoice. JetBlue announced that it’s flying its beloved Mint product between New York (JFK) and Palm Springs (PSP) for a limited-time only this winter.

Between December 21, 2017, and January 3, 2018, you can purchase a seat in the carrier’s lie-flat Mint cabin on the transcon route.

We’re seeing availability on some of the flights, with one-way fares from JFK to PSP for as little as $558 on Saturday, December 30. If you want to pay with TrueBlue points, the same one-way flight will cost you 42,200 points + $5.60.

With Mint, you’re not just getting a seat with extra legroom. You can expect what is arguably the industry’s best domestic lie-flat experience in an exclusive 16-seat cabin. You’ll also get expedited security, early boarding, large entertainment screens, Saxon + Parole meal options, Milk Bar treats, ice cream and more.


The flights will operate on the following schedule:

  • B6 149 New York (JFK) 6:30pm Departure ⇒ Palm Springs (PSP) 9:46pm Arrival
  • B6 150 Palm Springs (PSP) 10:58pm Departure ⇒ New York (JFK) 6:59am (+1) Arrival

If you have plans to escape the cold New York winter for the West Coast, this would be an awesome way to get there. It’ll be best to act quick, as tickets are selling quickly.
