JetBlue Planes Are Getting New Economy Seats And They Look So Comfortable

Comfy new airplane seats are coming to JetBlue planes. However, there is a slight catch.

The carrier has just announced that it is retrofitting its A320 Airbus planes with new seats. These seats will feature adjustable headrests, better back support, and power outlets for charging electronics. They’ll also come with 18-inch-wide cushions and wipe-clean surfaces.

However, it’s not all good news. Though JetBlue is known in the airline industry as having some of the roomiest economy class seating, the carrier is actually reducing the pitch of its seats by two inches. That means these new seats will have about 32 inches of space for passengers to stretch out in rather than the previous 34 inches.

Still, the loss of those two inches isn’t all bad. The new seats will also offer 10-inch, 1080p screens with over 100 television channels, as well as movies and video games. JetBlue’s planes should be completely upgraded by 2021.
