Re: JetBlue Orders 60 Airbus A220-300

Some other factors in the order would be the maintenance support. Jetblue has been having issues with Embraer since day 1 being the launch customer of the E190 and current issues with the two that went down with wing spar issues. Once the CSeries program was taken over by Airbus I’m sure with the cu...

Re: JetBlue Orders 60 Airbus A220-300

The idea would be the A220 would replace the E190s plus some of the older A320s. Wouldn’t be surprised if Jetblue ends up being just an A321CEO/NEO/LR/XLR and A220-300/100 fleet and slowly retire the A320s. The A220 has the advantage of flying short routes then fly a transcons with a red eye coming ...
