American carrier jetBlue has started flights from New York to London this year. Along with it comes a nice deal for this new route: You can fly to New York in their Mint business class for £1,172 (~€1,380) from Gatwick and at £1,198 (~€1,411) from Heathrow.
If you wish to rebook the flights, you’ll have to pay the fare difference. You can also cancel your booking and get a jetBlue voucher, valid for 12 months.
Touristic travel to the USA should be possible again from November 2021 onwards for fully vaccinated Europeans.
Our availability calendar shows you all possible roundtrips within the allowed maximum stay of sixty days. After selecting an out- and inbound flight date, it will forward you to JetBlue, where you can purchase your tickets.
Aircraft & Seats
The flights are operated with an Airbus A321 LR. You’d fly roughly 9 hours on the outbound flights and roughly 7 hours on your way back.
JetBlue ordered new Airbus A321 LR planes especially for their flights to London. These narrow-bodies have a great business class with lie-flat seats.
The plane has 22 Mint Suites and two Mint Studios in the first row. Every seat has direct access to the aisle. The Mint Studios are especially spacious, with a big sleeping area and a bigger TV screen. The Studios, however, cost €100 more.
Two pieces of luggage, each up to 32 kg, are included. Please be aware that jetBlue currently doesn’t operate any airport lounge, nor does it have a partnership.
