I am curious to the reason behind the delay.

YORK, March 25 (Reuters) - JetBlue Airways Corp. (NasdaqNM:JBLU - News) on Thursday said it was expanding service this summer from New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, as the start of service from New York's LaGuardia Airport has been delayed.
The low-cost carrier said service from New York's LaGuardia Airport would begin in late summer, rather than the spring as previously intended, because of "facilities issues" to be resolved with the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the Federal Aviation Administration.
Rapidly growing four-year-old JetBlue earlier this year requested 10 slots at LaGuardia, which it characterized as a "token presence", while it discussed building new terminals at JFK
, where is carries more passengers than any other airline.
A JetBlue spokesman did not immediately return a phone call seeking further information.
The New York-based airline said it would add new flights from JFK
to Denver, New Orleans, Buffalo and Rochester this summer. It plans to operate 35 percent more flights than last summer.
JetBlue expects to add 12 new 156-seat Airbus A320 narrow-body jets this year to its all-Airbus fleet of 57 aircraft and has ordered 100 Embraer 190 aircraft, which seat about 100 passengers each, for delivery beginning in mid-2005.
