JetBlue has unveiled details of the economy cabin it will deploy on transatlantic flights, promising more comfort and better food and connectivity options than other carriers in the market.
"We know all too well the pain points of international flying — the dreaded center section, the 'choice' of assembly-line chicken or beef, and the lack of connectivity," Jayne O'Brien, JetBlue's head of marketing and loyalty, said in a statement. "JetBlue is ready to change all that with our take on transatlantic travel where you are well taken care of and fully connected if you want to be."
The New York-based carrier plans to launch service to London this summer flying newly received Airbus A321LR single-aisle jets. JetBlue initially announced plans to begin flying across the Atlantic in April 2019, when the international travel market was robust. Routes were to include departures from Boston and New York JFK. The carrier has yet to announce which London airport it will be flying to and hasn't set launch dates.
