An unusually high flare for <i>Out of the Blue</i> as the mains hit 13L. My first JetBlue and Airbus flight was on this aircraft back in October 2005 (down to MCO).

The reason for the high AOA is because we are doing Flap 3 Landings with the 320 to help conserve fuel. It results in a 10-12 degree bank angle, and we save about 33-40 pounds of fuel. With the increased AOA, it results in a higher VRef/approach speed, as well as little bit longer rollout distance. You will be seeing this alot at JFK and other "Bluecities" with the exception of KBUR and other cities with shorter runways.
