JetBlue Mint Class sets the standard for domestic transcontinental service. Residents and visitors of Palm Springs will be able to fly Mint Class to/from New York for a brief period later this year.

|JFK – PSP Flight #149||PSP – JFK Flight #150|

The population in Palm Springs swells during the winter/spring season before retreating during the brutally hot summers. Even so, the population continues to rise and home values are through the roof. With JetBlue experiencing a 48% increase in demand since it launched the route in 2016, perhaps there will be a case for year-around Mint service if sales are strong this season.
