JetBlue Quietly Registered “Mint Suite” and “Mint Studio” Trademarks

JetBlue is expected to commence nonstop service between the U.S. and Europe in 2021. While the New York-based airline confirmed plans in 2019, there are still a number of unanswered questions surrounding the upcoming service.

As of February 2020, little is known about what this new Mint seat might...

Review: I Finally Got To Fly Cathay Pacific First Class

Cathay Pacific first class is often considered to be one of the top first class products offered by any airline. With a massive double-wide seat, exceptional service, and access to top airport lounges, Cathay Pacific first class is a highly sought after redemption.
