The American low cost carrier JetBlue started with transatlantic flights from New York JFK to Paris-Charles de Gaulle and London. After summer, the airline will also offer flights to Amsterdam from New York and Boston. JetBlue operates a fleet of modern Airbus A321 aircraft on transatlantic routes.
JetBlue flies to Europe
With a route network of over 100 destinations, JetBlue mainly focuses on North America and the Caribbean. The American carrier also seems to be interested in Europe. As well as flights to London, Paris and Amsterdam are also on the wish list. The connection with London Heathrow (LHR) began in 2021, but recently had extra flights added. Since last week, JetBlue also flies between New York JFK and Paris-Charles de Gaulle (CDG). The route to Amsterdam (AMS) will be added after summer, departing from both New York JFK and Boston (BOS).
Flight B6 1407 departs at 5:09 PM from New York and arrives the next day at 6:55 AM (local time) in Paris. The return flight B6 1408 departs from Paris at 8:55 AM (local time) and arrives at 11:51 AM in New York. JetBlue offers a daily flight on this route. Round trip Economy Class tickets are now available at a rate of around 700 USD. Check JetBlue’s website for the best deals.
JetBlue Mint Business Class
Most JetBlue aircraft only offer Economy Class, which is called ‘Core’. On longer flights there’s actually also a Business Class cabin on the Airbus A321. The Business Class is called ‘Mint’, which comes in two types. The first one is the regular Business Class Suite, offering a full flat seat. Every seat has direct aisle access. And a 17 inch inflight entertainment system and wireless charging should make every flight as comfortable as possible. The two bulkhead seats are called ‘Mint Studio’ and offer even more space with a 22 inch screen, more storage and even an extra seat.
Both Economy and Business Class passengers are offered drinks, snacks and meals on board. Of course the service in Business Class is better than in Economy. All passengers can use the free WiFi service during the flight.
American Airlines and JetBlue have been working together for quite some time now, including an extensive codeshare agreement. US authorities have however ruled that both airlines need to break up their collaboration due to competition regulations. The cooperation between the two was intended to compete with big carriers such as United Airlines and Delta Air Lines.
JetBlue also offers its own loyalty program, called TrueBlue. The program lets passengers accrue miles. With every flight members also get the opportunity to earn certain perks like free additional bagage allowance, priority boarding and extra bonus miles.
