Great Experiential Marketing: JetBlue Mint Room flying experience

By Joss Davidge

JetBlue Airways got people talking about its new premium front-of-the-cabin service “Mint” with this on-the-ground brand experience in Los Angeles.

The airline showed off Mint’s credentials (legroom, TVs, free snacks) in a four-day atrium-inspired lounge at Los Angeles’ outdoor mall.jetblue_mint_room_2

JetBlue crew members treated guests to experiences they would actually get in-flight. This included trying out Mint’s lie-flat seats, tasting selections from the in-flight small plates menu created by New York City’s Saxon + Parole restaurant, and enjoying mint “mocktails.”JB_MINT_ROOM_3JB_MINT_ROOM_4

Cocktails were served from a centrepiece bar that doubled as a mobile device charging station. And amongst the delicious bite-sized treats were English Pea Soup, Long Island Duck and Poached Pear.JB_MINT_ROOM_5

Throwing an social media incentive competition element into the mix, guests were encouraged to take a #JBSeatSelfie for a chance to win a round trip Mint ticket. The first 50 entrants received a JetBlue Mint Birchbox product kit, which is one of the many complementary amenities the Mint package boasts.

An estimated 30,000 people sampled The Mint Room, well and truly introducing and promoting Mint to the Los Angeles market. This is a great example of a brand knowing exactly where its target market will be – a luxury experience like this is bound to appeal to the wealthy LA’s style conscious consumers.

Other recent experiential marketing activations from LA that we’ve enjoyed include M.A.C.’s synchronized swimmer stunt on Hollywood Boulevard and WATCH_DOGS street hack prank.
