JetBlue has revealed a new interior design for its transcontinental flights featuring a premium cabin with business class seats and separate single suites. New lie-flat seats are expected to debut on new Airbus A321 aircraft from 2014 on routes from New York to Los Angeles and from New York to San Francisco.
The new lie-flat seats were created in a partnership with Northern Ireland-based company Thompson Aero Seating. They will offer air cushions with adjustable firmness, a massage function, a 15-inch widescreen TV and a “wake-me-for-service” indicator.
JetBlue will also be refreshing the core JetBlue Experience next year, with a comfortable seat design including movable headrests, a new entertainment system with up to 100 channels of DirecTV programming on 10.1-inch widescreens, and 110-volt and USB power ports accessible to all customers. JetBlue CEO Dave Barger said:
Our customers have requested more premium options on our transcontinental flights and we listened. We decided to enter the premium transcontinental market in a way that only JetBlue can: with an intense focus on offering the best possible product for the best possible price.
