JetBlue is adding to the selection of flights that offer its first-class Mint product, the New York-based airline said on Thursday.

As part of an expansion to Palm Springs, the low-cost carrier said it would be adding an additional Saturday flight with Mint service on its New York JFK to Palm Springs (PSP) route during peak travel weekends in January and February 2019. These new Saturday flights with Mint service are in addition to the carrier’s established PSP Mint flights that are set to operate daily during the holiday season between December 20, 2018, and January 3, 2019. The new Saturday Mint flights will replace previous evening and overnight service, operating as daylight flights in both directions.

TPG calls JetBlue’s Mint product “one of the best cabins in the skies.” And TPG‘s Benji Stawski had a “truly amazing experience” when he flew Mint from Los Angeles to Boston last year onboard the airline’s Airbus A321 aircraft. Mint perks include lie-flat seating, a signature cocktail, food menu by New York restaurant Saxon + Parole and amenity kits by Hayward and Hopper.

JetBlue also announced on Thursday that it would be extending its JFK to Palm Springs flying season a month longer than in previous years — through Memorial Day 2019. The carrier is also starting the PSP operations a month earlier, too, launching the route this year on Oct. 10. The route will be operated by the A321, which it says is in response to strong customer demand for the aircraft. The A321s are outfitted with 10-inch IFE screens and power outlets at every seat.
