What's JetBlue's plan for Orlando MCO?

It appears as though growth for B6 at MCO has stagnated over the last few years. Do they have any long-term plans to beef-up their focus city operations in Orlando? Are they content with what they have? Or, are there any plans to downsize their presence at MCO given WN's status there?

With a reasonable range of 3,400 miles, the 7M8 offers additional opportunities for YYZ/YOW/YUL-Europe flights.

EDI, GLA, MAN, BHX, OSL, MAD, OPO become possibilities at this point.

Re: New airport for Seattle-Tacoma Region

If they can move runways 19L/34R and 19C/34C to where the current terminal is so that it runs adjacent to the expressway and cemetery, then it would free up enough space between those two runways and 19R/34L for the construction of a midfield terminal.
