JetBlue not happy with the E-190 and JetBlue to Europe??

Currently JetBlue Fleet contains three different types of plans in their fleet:

  1. 162 seat Airbus 320
  2. 150 seat Airbus 320
  3. 100 seat Embraer 190

Out of Worcester we have the 100 seat Embraer 190, although once in a while we do get the Airbus.    Bottom line is that JetBlue has not been happy with the performance and return from the Embraer, click here.   

JetBlue has another 24 E190s on order, after deferrals it made back in 2013. Deliveries are set to resume in 2020, according to JetBlue’s latest fleet plan. The airline has so far remained silent on whether it could convert its remaining E190 orders to the re-engined E190-E2, which is scheduled to enter into service in 2018.

But here is where it gets real interesting:

Separately, the carrier continues to evaluate the Airbus A321LR, which will allow it to launch transatlantic service to Europe. JetBlue has until the end of this year to decide if it wants to switch orders for 15 A321neos to the long-range jet, which Airbus will offer from 2019.
