Some interesting snippets (fleet wise) about Jetstart from Airline Business:
Quote: Joyce says Jetstar will be adding more A320s and possibly also larger A321s as part of its short-haul expansion. He adds that the airline is “flexible with leased or owned aircraft”.
Quote: “But we are looking at our plans for early 2008 onwards and we are trying to source aircraft because we believe that there are growth opportunities in the short-haul market - domestically, trans-Tasman [to New Zealand] and short-haul international.”
Quote: It will later replace the 787-8s with larger, longer-range 787-9s, which will enable it to expand further, including to the west coast of North America and Europe via South-east Asia. Bangkok, where it has set up a cabin crew base, is seen as the likely transit point for future European services.
