JetBlue holds a 5% stake in the US market and, prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, had planned to operate transatlantic services between Boston, New York and London from 2021.
JetBlue flew the first regularly scheduled, commercial passenger service between the United States and Cuba for more than 50 years on August 31, 2016.
Despite being 'New York's hometown airline', Boston/Logan is JetBlue's largest hub. To acknowledge this there are special liveries to support the city's basketball and ice hockey teams - the Celtics and the Bruins.
The carrier has applied special colour schemes to 22 Airbus A320s and a sole Embraer E190.
Despite JetBlue shifting to the larger Airbus A321 and A321neo, the A320 remains the most numerous type.
The Airbus A320 fleet received a cabin overhaul in 2018.
Airbus A220-300s had been expected to replace the 60 Embraer E190s on a like-for-like basis, however the carrier exercised options for a further ten examples at the 2019 Paris Air Show.
As of May 2020, the airline fielded a fleet of 130 Airbus A320s, 75 A321-200s and 60 Embraer E190s.
An initial Airbus A321neo was handed over on June 28, 2019.
Nine Airbus A321neos have been delivered from an order for 85 jets.
Airbus A321-200, N965JT (c/n 6512), was accepted by the JetBlue on April 25, 2016. The airliner was the first aircraft to be produced at Airbus' Mobile, Alabama final assembly line.
The first two rows of seating onboard the airline's Airbus A321s are home to the Mint Suites - the equivalent of a first class offering.
