CLEVELAND - Budget friendly airline JetBlue is planning to add first-class seats to some of its flights, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The new seats will convert to lie-flat beds and some will be walled off from the aisle by sliding doors JetBlue is calling those suites.
Passengers who choose these premium seats will get hot meals and free alcoholic beverages.
These new seats will be available next spring, initially on flights from New York to Los Angeles and New York to San Francisco.
Those are the two busiest and most profitable routes for airlines in the United States.
Competitors usually charge four thousand dollars or more for a round trip ticket on those trips.
JetBlue's lowest fare is about seven hundred dollars.
A Delta Air Lines flight from Seattle to Atlanta has been diverted to Spokane International Airport after a 16-year-old boy died on board.
Travelers flying out of Cleveland Hopkins International Airport will pay more for parking in two lots starting Tuesday.
