Now for the great news! Earlier this summer, we checked in with some of our favorite frequent flyers to see exactly what they hoped to see in the JetBlue suite seats, and there emerged and overwhelming desire for privacy and freedom of choice. JetBlue saw the writing on the wall well before us, and the premium seats will not only be in their own cabin ahead of economy, but each row of seats will have a partial divider. Four of the sixteen premium seats will be solo, or "thone," and will come complete with a sliding door of the perfect height to keep prying eyes off your laptop screen, or off your drooling face during beauty sleep.
Freedom of choice comes in the form of seat comfort options (including lumbar controls) and positions, storage nooks for keeping organized, two power ports and two USB ports per seat. It's up to you how you spend your flight time, whether it means reading, sleeping, working on JetBlue's Fly-Fi internet connection, watching 100+ channels of DirectTV on the 15" screen, or Instagramming the clouds above "flyover country."
As for size, the bed in lie-flat position is a startling 6'8" in length. It is completely lie-flat, but the adjustment controls do allow for you to find your most comfortable position.
There's no word yet on just how much it'll cost to fly in one of these babies from coast to coast, but any New Yorker knows that JetBlue gets a kick out of undercutting competitors with surprise sales. The airline is set to do a full reveal with final specifics on September 30, so perhaps the greatest news of all is that the guessing games and seat rumors are almost at an end.
