Re: Updated: JetBlue orders 13 A321XLR and 10 A223

The 10 more A223 just shows that A220s were never meant to just be E90 replacement. I would guess 40 to 50 A223s can replace those E90 flying just based on the higher utilization + greater capacity. Any additional A223 will be used to replace A320s. They got 50 options left. I'm sure they got kille...
