JetBlue appears to have released a video showing its new premium cabin that will grace the airline’s forthcoming Airbus A321 aircraft on transcontinental routes.
While its authenticity hasn’t been verified, it’s likely what will be announced tomorrow at the Global Business Travel Association conference in San Diego.
The video first takes you through the coach cabin showing both regular economy and the Even More Space section. It then heads up front to reveal what appears to be a 16-seat cabin with a 2-2 configuration in rows 1, 3 and 5, and solo mini-suites (complete with privacy doors) on both sides of the aisle in rows 2 and 4.
This layout is identical to what was reported in June, when Airbus made a filing to the FAA on JetBlue’s behalf proposing a layout of 16 business class seats, including four single seat “mini-suites.”
The seats appear to be of the angled-flat variety: [Edited to add: Wandering Aramean in the comments below says they're fully flat]
I’m sure we’ll get confirmation tomorrow, but in the meantime here’s the video:
