JetBlue has revealed a complete redesign of their A320 aircraft interior, bringing living room-comfort to the sky

American carrier JetBlue has unveiled its first upgrade of the Airbus A320 cabin interior since their launch in 2000 and their mission is clear – to bring humanity back to air travel.

With the most legroom in coach of any US airline, the widest seats available for the A320, and an enhanced entertainment, JetBlue aims to create the environment that “feels more like lounging in your living room than flying at 35,000 feet”.

The seats are also equipped with adjustable headrests, a new feature for A320, as well as a 10.1 inch, 1080P high definition screen for the best onboard entertainment, and at least two easily-accessible and repositioned power connections with USB ports. Passengers will also have the opportunity to track their route with an enhanced 3D flight map.

“JetBlue’s A320 restyling is about making the best even better,” said JetBlue’s executive vice president commercial and planning, Marty St. George.

“JetBlue has built its innovative reputation on offering our customers the very best products and a level of service they won’t find on another US airline and this update ensures we remain the go-to choice for flyers who expect nothing but the best.”

The carrier also reflects the ever-growing need for connectivity as they provide free gate-to-gate Fly-Fi high-speed internet, with the coverage across nearly the entire JetBlue network.

“We are excited to partner with JetBlue on their plan to further enhance the customer experience,” said Jeff Knittel, chairman & CEO of Airbus Americas.

“JetBlue’s decision to upgrade to state of the art wireless connectivity and IFE will truly be a highlight to their customers. The A320 remains a market leader with JetBlue’s focus on customer comfort and innovative technologies. Airbus is proud to be a part of JetBlue’s success!”

The first flight with the new interior took off on 2 May from Boston Logan International Airport landing in Bermuda’s L.F. Wade International Airport.
