"We're going to look at (slowing deliveries) very seriously as we look at our routes and where the capability is and where the substantial profitability (is)," David Neeleman, the airline's founder, said at an investor conference. He said the airline, which is forecasting a full-year loss, would also consider selling new shares as it seeks to keep its debt at no more than 75 percent of its total capital.
If the New York-based airline did delay deliveries of aircraft it has on order from Airbus
Neeleman said that given strong demand from airlines elsewhere for both of JetBlue's mainstay planes, the Airbus A320 and the smaller Embraer E-190, it would be easy to defer the planned deliveries. "One of the advantages we have is that we have airplanes that are very desirable on the world market," he said.
The airline is slated to take delivery of 17 A320s this year and 17 next, and 18 E-190s in each of 2006 and 2007, boosting its fleet to 162 planes from 92 at the end of 2005.

Has anyone heard any more on this and is it likely to impact on the Jungle Jets more so than the A320s. Any further info would be appreciated
