I heard that B6 has reeched an aggrement with Vueling for the sale of 5 A320 aircraft. Can anyone confirm this?

We should be getting final word pretty soon. JetBlue has stated that they cannot give public information until all deals are made final and property rights are forfeited. Makes sense.

Does make sense, I know David had mentioned 3 to 5 A320's, he did say that 3 would leave the fleet in September and 2 could depart in October. is it safe to say that they have found a buyer for the remaining 2?

Will Vueling offer inflight TV / PTV on those A320's?
I know both companies are run with the same business philosophy (or at least JetBlue managers are involved in Vueling).

I was just thinking the same thing. Considering the IFE jet Blue uses is related to United States satellite I doubt it would be available in Spain or Europe. Maybe they can make a deal with Canal Plus or something.

The actual programming is U.S-based. But the IFE itself - as in the unit - can be used anywhere. Don't forget that WestJet, Virgin Blue and now some Italian airline all have LiveTV service.

They have staggered there delivery of all A/C 320's and 190's, in an effort to return to profitability. They will still take delivery of 12 320's (I could be wrong) next year. The sale of these 5 320's helps with maintenance cost, and capcity.

Hmm, does this mean Vueling and Blue Wings might possibly become customers of LiveTV?

Looks like Ship 507 was one of B6's first aircraft.

This move by B6 makes so much sense. Part of B6's allure is that they fly "brand new" planes. The a/c mentioned has been in the fleet for over 6 years. While it still may be considered new to some airlines, passengers may see worn out overhead bins and dirty walls as sign of age and feel duped that they are not on a new plane.

Also with B6 getting rid of these a/c while getting new a/c they are able to get rid of a/c that are no longer under warranty and now cost maintenance dollars.

Seems like a smart move to me.
Dave

P.S. wonder if they will recycle the name?

 checkmark  Does anyone that works for jetBlue know what the other tail #'s are? Either way with the sale of these A/C jetBlue will add millions of dollars to there balance sheet, not to mention the cost they save on maintance!!

Only the A320s. The E190s are on the same delivery schedule.
