So how has Jet Blue's change of strategy, adding E-190's to their A320 fleet, worked for them? What have the success failures been? I assume SouthWest have been watching this closely, to see whether the additional complexity to their operations is worth it?

I think it is working quite well now, but I have seen a few references to teething problems when the EJets were first added.

Are cabin crews trained on both types, so they can work everything everywhere?


Come, fly the prevailing winds with me

In reallity, it server quite well... The e-190 is a great plane with a pretty good range (about 2300 nm) and it does allow jetblue to enter smaller airport with a 1500 ft runway. It also allow B6 to use the right airplane for the right load. The problem is that B6 need to adquire an a/c with around 200 seat in oder to break away from the 2500 nm A320 usefull range...

There is a possibility that jetBlue may get a 3rd aircraft type:The Boeing 787 Dreamliner  


Bring JetBlue To Mexico City! (TLC and/or MEX would be great)

Trust me, an E190 is not going into a 1,500 ft runway. A loaded Cessna barely can.



Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD. Return: US SJD-PHX, WN PHX-MDW-DSM

While I don't doubt the rest, a 190 cannot use a 1500 foot runway. The only commercial aircraft that could use that length runway is a twin otter.

Maybe he meant "1500 meter runway"? At any rate, maybe WN will think enough of the success here & see fit to follow B6's lead and bring the WN brand/service to another round of markets/cities.



Finally made it to an airline mecca!

I saw a photoillustration and a blurb about WN being a potential E-Jet customer some years ago, but I don't know if it was a report or just speculation. Either way, I don't see that happening soon.
