JetBlue Mint Ultimate Guide [Routes, Seats, and Points]

JetBlue’s Mint is a reasonably priced and luxurious lie-flat business class service that flies from New York-JFK, Boston, and Fort Lauderdale to cities on the West Coast or in the Caribbean. 

JetBlue stands out from the competition on many of these routes since they offer lie-flat seats. Other airlines such as American Airlines or Alaska Airlines only offer less comfortable recliner seats.

JetBlue’s Mint is also a great value on many of its routes. In the example below, you could fly Blue economy class for $240 or have a lie-flat seat with food and alcoholic drinks for only $71 more!

JetBlue Pricing

The price above was during a sale, but JetBlue typically prices out JetBlue at $500 to $700 each way. 

Flights to Seattle, San Diego, and San Francisco are usually much cheaper than flights to Los Angeles (LAX).

Lie-Flat Seats

JetBlue’s Mint cabin consists of 16 seats with three rows of 2-2 seats and two rows of 1-1 throne suites.

The throne suites are in rows 2 and 4 and offer a sliding door and are great if you are traveling alone and want privacy.

The throne suites’ footwell is more narrow than the rows with two seats, but both seats transform into lie-flat beds that are 6 feet and 8 inches long.

  • 15-inch touchscreen TV with on-demand TV shows and DirectTV

Booking a JetBlue Mint Ticket

You can either book a Mint ticket with cash or points. JetBlue’s TrueBlue points program is revenue based, which means that the number of points needed for a ticket is directly connected to the cash price of the ticket.

Our research indicated that TrueBlue points are worth about 1.01 cents per point when redeemed for Mint tickets. But you get a better value of 1.38 cents when redeeming points instead for economy class.

Booking with Points

To help you with your approximate points calculations:

  • $450 flight = 44,000 points
  • $500 flight = 49,000 points
  • $550 flight = 53,900 points
  • $600 flight = 58,900 points

If you book an economy class flight with either points or cash, you can upgrade your ticket to Mint by paying the difference in price as long as it is the same flight.

This can be a great way to upgrade if the cash price of a Mint ticket drops over time.
