Jetblue's Cabin Redesign Is A Big Step Up . . . For Some People

JetBlue has a new design scheme for their Airbus A321s, used on transcontinental flights. In addition to the usual 143 economy seats, these planes will have actual "class" seating for the first time with 16 business class seats and four business class "suites." Apparently Jetblue had to file a special request with the FAA for business class.

The special suites have sliding doors and it looks like there are a bunch of sleeping pod-style amenities like a big TV and maybe electrical outlets. It's Jetblue and also 2013 so every seat in the plane will have a screen for in-flight entertainment, but size comes with price. The new digs are coming out in 2014, but only for transcontinental flights. Because of course. [Skift]
