Will they build an A320-300 or A320.5 as some have referred? How many MORE seats would an A321 have, as opposed to a (2 frame?) stretch of the A320? With JetBlue's increasing emphasis on longer haul transcon flying, it would seem to me that the A321-200 would be just as economical for them. How many more seats are we talking about here, anyway? 20? Just a curious observation. Any JetBlue people lurking, please feel free to chime in on the conversation, would like to get your take on the subject.

jetBlue is Loyal, going out for an A320 which they would probably ask for a lot, over time. If Airbus is too mean to go out for their customers, I woudl spit in Airbus' face and choose the 737NG. airTran is loyal also, and if BOEING won't go out of their way, I would spit in their face. The problem with that though. Is that they would need to sell All Those A320s and 717s which probably wouln't happen. And the PR would be ridiculous
You owe me $0.02

Per AW&ST, Airbus has stated there is not enough market demand to warrant a two row extension (for anyone). I believe they have suggested that the 321 can be substituted in cases where greater capacity warrants.
