April 7, 2021 / JetBlue Airways (B6) unveiled the new Economy Class featured on the Airbus A321LRs that the carrier will use for its transatlantic flights, due to begin next summer.
The carrier has signed a partnership agreement with Dig to offer an exclusive dining experience at 35,000 feet: customers will be able to customize their meal directly using their backseat IFE screen. The Dig menu features a seasonal selection of proteins, vegetables and grains. Plus, the menu will include hearty offerings like roasted chicken leg on a brown rice base with herbs and spiced eggplant on coconut quinoa and cauliflower, with sides including Dig’s beloved mac and cheese and a tomato salad.
Additional food and beverage offerings for core customers will include specially designed onboard Pantry with a self-serve grab & go snack basket for customers to enjoy throughout their flight. Complimentary soft drinks, coffee, tea, beer, wine and liquor will also be served, along with a light bite prior to arrival.
A game-changing treat for Economy passengers on long-haul is the ultra-fast Wi-Fi, available for free throughout the whole flight. All the 114 18.4-inch (47cm)-wide seats feature a 10.1-inch (25.5cm) full HD IFE screen with a selection of international TV channels, movies and premium content from HBO & Showtime. An AC charging socket and the USB type C port complete each seat’s accessories.
