JetBlue E-190 In SLC

Sun Oct 30, 2005 9:25 am

Around 5:15PM SLC time, I just saw a JetBlue E-190 waiting for takeoff on Runway 17. Looked sharp, wondering if it's on route proving to SLC or just making stops around the system. Nice looking plane though.

Various stops and proving.

We just got an email yesterday saying all training is complete and the aircraft has met all FAA requirements. Ready for Revenue service Nov. 8th!

They may have been on proving flights earlier, but today it was an open house for all the JetBlue employees (SLC based) to come out and see the a/c. They were giving rides for the employees, several flights thru out the day. It was parked on the G/A side over night, it looked very sharp pulling up to it in the dark and finally seeing the paint scheme.

Any possibility of more SLC flights, especially now with Delta implementing Songs PTV service to some of its mainline flights? I make a yearly trip to a conference in SLC and I hate having to fly the redeye SLC-JFK.

Probably a daytime JFK-SLC on peak times since SLC is a great city for B6 and maybe other routes down the road. SLC is Neeleman's hometown (well he was born in Brazil but moved to SLC when he was a kid) and I have a feeling he won't let it just have 1X JFK and 1X LGB. More to come most likely.

Congrats to B6. Over a week to spare too.  spin

The rear lavatory in the E190 is about as spacious as it gets for an aircraft this size

Perfect for the mile high club!  duck  Sorry, I had 3 hours of sleep last night...

Thanks for the photos and information. I do hope that B6's profit projection for the 4th Quarter is "pessimistic" and that the E190 helps drive their profit growth.
