To upgrade to JetBlue Mint, you have a few options:
- Upgrade at the gate: JetBlue does not sell Mint upgrades in advance or at check-in. Instead, you can request an upgrade at the gate. If there are any Mint seats available, the gate agent will quote you a price, and you can purchase the upgrade. Keep in mind that the upgrade will be processed on a first-come, first-served basis, depending on seat availability.
- Upgrade online: You can check if a Mint upgrade is available for your flight reservation by logging into your booking on the JetBlue website. If the upgrade is available, you can pay the required fare difference using cash or points.
- Upgrade over the phone: You can also call JetBlue Airways at 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583) to request a Mint upgrade. You will need to pay the fee with a credit or debit card, and a confirmation email will be sent to you.
The cost of a JetBlue Mint upgrade varies depending on the route and availability. Typically, the price ranges from $499 to $699 or higher. For London-bound flights, the upgrade starts from $129, and for Los Angeles-bound flights, it starts from $199. Note that JetBlue does not allow upgrades using points, and you cannot upgrade to Mint at the airport check-in counter.
Keep in mind that upgrading to Mint at the airport gate does not include free priority security, additional checked baggage, or extra TrueBlue points.
