There are some very exciting additions on the way to JetBlue’s business-class product, Mint.

June 1 marks a major milestone for JetBlue, when the New York-based carrier launches its brand-new Mint seat on flights between New York-JFK and Los Angeles (LAX). Then, on Aug. 11, Mint crosses the Atlantic for the very first time, with the carrier’s inaugural flight to London Heathrow (LHR).

In preparation for both launches, JetBlue began updating its Mint “soft product” last year, adding new bedding, amenity kits and meals created by New York City-based Delicious Hospitality Group (DHG), which also operates a handful of top NYC restaurants, including Charlie Bird, Legacy Records and Pasquale Jones.

Charlie Bird was the first member restaurant to help create meals for Mint — which TPG’s Zach Griff experienced this past winter — and now it’s Pasquale Jones’ turn!

The airline’s latest menus are available on this website, and vary depending on flight direction and time of day. For example, eastbound lunch/dinner options include:

JetBlue’s beverage program recently got an upgrade as well, with rotating cocktails mixed and served at each passenger’s seat.

Beverage options for June and July include:

  • Mint Condition cocktail: Bombay Sapphire gin or Tito’s vodka, ginger, lime, cucumber, mint
  • Black Maple Old Fashioned: Jack Daniel’s whiskey, maple, bitters, orange peel
  • Liquor selection: Tito’s vodka, Bombay Sapphire gin, Bacardi rum, Jack Daniel’s whiskey, Dewar’s White Label scotch, Bulleit Bourbon, Baileys Irish Cream
  • A selection of beer, along with red, white and rose wines

It isn’t just premium-cabin flyers who will benefit from the airline’s food-and-beverage boosts — JetBlue is also making significant investments in its “Core” economy product for London flights, offering fantastic meals and upgraded drinks, including complimentary beer, wine and liquor for anyone traveling in coach.
