Doesn't the email just link to the same webpage that hasn't been updated — I suspect your menu tomorrow will be different than the April/May rotation

& reviews

rotating snack: “breadsticks”, dry, sad. JetBlue, stop serving this.

Burrata: very good but served 10-15° too cold. Recommendation: this may be your appetizer, but let it sit and eat later.

Chicken: dry, sauce saves it and makes it quite good.

Lamb ragu: surprisingly good, comfort food.

gelato: it’s raspberry and gelato, you are probably going to be happy. I had to let it soften for 5 minutes before I could eat it.

Thanks for the posting the menu.. Hopefully its a good quality burrata. Overall a disappointment of a menu for me as I hate raspberry sauce. Would take any fruit but peach or raspberry to go on/with the gelato. Also, I dont get how one entre isnt Veg. Run a fish, chicken and Veg or fish, beef, veg, etc etc but one should be veg. I'll eat the fish and i dont mind chicken but its never good on a plane. Cant do the beef. Veg stuff i.e. pasta always heats well on a plane. Or even a risotto. So I'm going Fluke & the first 2 items. I am def more looking forward to my Asian Veg AA special meal on the outbound and knowing i will get a sundae, cheese plate and hopefully the 3rd dessert is the sticky toffee cake.

Really weak effort on the breadsticks thats pretty bad. They did have some warm rolls from a basket right? At least they have cap and expresso.

Agreed. Ridiculous its not updated online. How come B6 doesnt do special meals like Asian Veg or Hindu? I cant find them. Its just straight Vegan or Plane eats which I heard is bad. I suppose I could order the Vegan one but then ask to have some items off the regular menu i.e. burrata & fluke b/c they cater so much extra on B6 I believe someone posted above. The few x I have done Mint I landed so hungry so maybe this would be a way to get more to eat.

Just realized I cant even decide if I want to do the Veg special order which is avail for domestic Mint b/c its still showing May. I dont know what June options would even be.

Btw, how is their champagne? I think the few times I did Mint I just got the signature cocktail, which was pretty good.

Ok look we get it — you've posted ~10x in this thread about how much better AA is (I think most of us regular B6 flyers on here have different opinions which is fine) — so why not just fly them and save yourself all the stress over a menu? Even if you snagged a cheap Mint fare it doesn't really feel worth it given all the pre-departure worrying it appears to be causing...

Also for everyone else who's wondering — June/July menus are finally up: https://www.jetblue.com/flying-with-...inflight-menus (and lunch/dinner in both directions looks pretty good imo)

Cheap fare, expensive fare, whatever,. Its now June 7 and my flight is in a few days and I cant know if I want to get the Veg menu b/ they cant put a menu online..

I like some things about Mint. FA's are also really nice & helpful. And AA isnt exactly hitting it out of the park. My last 2 premium Transcon flights LAX/MIA forgot massive amounts of catering items including some meals mislabeled while one had absolutely no bedding for any passengers.

While I agree that this month's menu does nothing for me (except maybe the fluke... I would like to see a photo of that if anyone has had it), I've all but given up on plane food. 90% of the time now I just fly in EMS/premium econ/whatever an airline calls its fancy coach seats and bring my own food, and 100% of the time it is delicious, healthy, and filling. With that being said... Mint food is usually pretty good and often falls into that 10% exception IMO.

Haha given the thread I was focusing mainly on catering/soft product — I doubt any of us fly JetBlue for their operational capabilities or IT (although recently B6 did save me after a DL cancel so that was that)

Thinking of trying this Veg menu which is the butternut squash polenta, quinoa/bean salad & falafel. Just wondering if anyone has had it and how it was??

I just got home from my first Mint flight. I will post food pics later. I thought the food was good and plenty of it. I chose the burrata which was delicious with the pesto & pine nuts..loved it. The chicken romesco was dry but the sauce was good. I loved the lamb ragu and it was a generous portion. Warm roll with olive oil. And the vanilla gelato with raspberry was really good. There were plenty of snacks behind First including a fridge with drinks.
There was only one FA working first but she was very good. No PDB which was a disappointment as we took off an hour late. I was starving and parched by the time I got my first drink & cheese sticks. I had the margarita which was very good---I loved it and could have pounded down a few more but I didn't want to get plastered.
Thanks to you all, I had a throne and loved that as well. The seat itself was a bit uncomfortable as there didn't seem to be much cushioning plus all the hard surfaces around it where my arms kept hitting but I love the privacy and storage room and the door. Other that being so late (we made up time) I had a really good experience. FA was great.

Good to hear about the burrata, I'm excited to try it. What were the cheese sticks?? Just those things I see some pics of that are seem to be pre packaged? Couldnt agree with you more on the seat- the space in the suite is awesome, love the door as well and feels so private but just a fairly uncomfortable and hard seat that also doesnt recline well. I'm going to try the Fluke, hoping its good.

I used the wrong word...actually they were cheese straws and good. I would skip the chicken next time. I wish I could have seen the fluke because I was interested myself.

A little blurry...turbulence
