(Queens, NY) There’s good news for those of you planning to fly with JetBlue in the future.

The budget-friendly airline is planning to add first-class seats to some of its flights.

The new seats will convert to flat beds, and some will even convert into 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.

Competitors usually charge $4,000 or more for a round-trip ticket on those trips, but JetBlue will charge $700.
