Status Of JetBlue Screen & XM Upgrades?

Thu Jan 18, 2007 7:57 am

I haven't flown jetBlue in a few months now (going through B6 withdrawal, which will be cured Monday)

Have they completed installing the new, larger monitors on all planes?

Also, what about the XM radio?

Both upgrades were supposed to be completed long ago...is all the fleet now equipped?

Thanks for any information!

The installations are all supposed to be done by about March 2007.

I think a lot of A320s have the new screens - I'm not sure how many have the XM radio installed. My last flight in December did, but that was also the first time I've had both the tv and XM on an Airbus.
None shall pass!!!!

Still no XM on "Mystic Blue" this week. Flew it both JFK to BUR, and BUR to JFK later in the week, and didn't have it.

FA's said very few of the A320's have them, and they may not be installed on older planes.

The updates are going on when the aircraft goes in for heavy maintenance. Since our planes are "THAT" old yet many of the 4 and 5 year aircraft don't have them yet. The entire fleet is suppose to be retrofitted by the end of '07
