Mint during COVID - are aisle seats blocked?

I can't find the answer anywhere on the site. I know that middle seats are blocked through July 31st, but it seems....at least on the seat maps that Mint also has the aisle seats blocked on each flight? Anyone known if that's true or am I just looking at every flight with all the aisle seats booked?

I haven't flown myself, but I reached out on Twitter a few weeks ago about this, and they said all mint aisle seats were being blocked until July 6 (I assume now through the end of the month).

What do you think Jetblue would allow with infant on "lap" in Mint right now. Do you think they would let my 18mth old use the seat adjacent to me

I assume you mean that you plan to pay for the Mint seat for the infant, and if so, JetBlue is (or was) allowing families to sit together but I think you have to call to release the seat.

Yes, there was a couple traveling together in Mint on my recent JFK SEA flight but everyone else on a row with two seats didn't have neighbors

Anyone know this is still in effect? Three adults; me, my wife and my adult son travelling SAN to EWR. Only windows (which is fine) but don't want to have all of us crawl over someone on a 5hr flt. Thanks in advance. Stay safe and keep traveling!

Starting Oct 16, I think they just updated their policies so that only the aisle seats in first rows are blocked.

Makes sense. I wouldn't have expected this to go on for much longer.

B6 is in a tough spot and without additional government help, they have to sell as many premium seats as possible
