Eastbound breakfast SFO - JFK
January 2020

Open PDB offered during boarding. Just went with seltzer.

Maple-glazed bacon was offered as a supplement with any three Delish Dishes choices. I refrained.

The usual Milk Bar cookie was offered pre-arrival, but I skipped it again this time. I really wish B6 would offer something else ... so sick of that cookie.



Typical goodie bag in place at boarding (along with water bottle and wrapped pillow/blanket.)

Welcome card.

Mint breakfast menu du jour.

Mint booze. Too early for me to partake (this trip, anyway.)

Welcome pastry - pain au chocolat.

My 3 of 5 Delish Dishes: Fresh Fruit, Salmon Salad, Eggplant Shakshuka.

Fresh Fruit - citrus, blackberry, strawberry. Obviously, it's 95% citrus, but at least they removed the seeds, which was most appreciated.

Smoked Salmon Salad - English cucumber, cherry tomato, pumpernickel. The dollop was salmon salad was unremarkable, but OK. The bread was completely stale.

Eggplant Shakshuka - poached egg, feta, herbs. Please don't bother serving a poached egg if the yolk is going to be hard-cooked. :-(

Westbound Lunch/Dinner JFK - SFO
January 2020


Open PDB offered during boarding. Chose one of the white wines on offer.

Typical zipped goodie bag, wrapped pillow/blanket & water bottle in place upon boarding.


Welcome card. Afina always had a smile on her face!

Westbound Lunch/Dinner Menu.

Mint booze menu.

White wine PDB.

My 3/5 Delish Dishes: Pan-seared Seabass, Spicy Brick Chicken and Green Goddess Salad. (I failed to photo the Marcona Almonds served once we were up in the air. OK, but almost zero salt and, of course, room temp.

Pan-seared Seabass: parmesan risotto, broccolini, carrot-chardonnay sauce. Quite the dichotomy - the bass was top 10 in-the-air US carrier fish; the risotto and the sauce were awful.

Spicy Brick Chicken: collard greens, horseradish mash, onion sauce. Overall thumbs up.

Green Goddess Salad: baby greens, asparagus, green beans, English peas, cucumber, avocado, feta. OK, but I wish they'd have skipped the baby greens b/c they just turned to sludge with the dressing. If they'd have stuck to more sturdy veg this would have worked fine.

Fresh Fruit Dessert: Papaya, Mango, Pineapple, Strawberry. Ice cream was offered as well (on its own or plus fruit, but I skipped it).

That's literally just ham and cheese. "Charcuterie" is a stretch. And the crackers just out on the tray... nice

I may be in the minority, but I don't care for sweetened/candied bacon. I always wished they could just have normal food.

Just a FYI, the crackers were placed inside the ham and cheese casserole dish, but I put them on the tray for better pictures.
However I think the crackers were loaded separately and the F/A just placed them on the ham & cheese casserole, when they were served, or else the moisture from the ham and cheese will make the crackers soggy.

I see, that makes sense about the crackers. Calling this a "charcuterie" plate is still a stretch.

PS. JetBlue... you really need to do something with the service after the COVID-19 crisis is over. Many of these F/As should not be serving the Mint cabin.

There has been lots of talk about this among crewmembers. My last three trips in Mint were average at best (okay, the last one was good, but the other two were unremarkable). I could go onto a tirade about how the program is set up and they scared off the originals that made Mint the best thing since Pan Am... but that's not for this thread. I have a feeling I know who your FA was (I could name several), and you are not alone in your sentiments.

I wonder what happened to the ex-NW FAs that they hired for their premium cabin experience.

Mint service modifications for the corona virus:
  • Select EatUp Cafe items will be served instead of traditional meal service
  • Core beer and wine will be available
  • No citrus garnishes or real milk/OJ
  • Core earbuds instead of Grado headsets
  • Milk Bar cookie replaces snack basket service
  • No glassware (will serve in plastic cups)
  • No menus/welcome note
Overall I think this is being handled very well, all things considered. I would have preferred a single-tray traditional meal but this is probably a safer bet (not to mention cheaper).
