Re: Jetblue Fleet Thread - 2022

When finished, they expect to have five tail designs across the fleet to make it easier for the Customers and Crewmembers to identify the plane they’re flying on. I’d hope they switch to the new ultraleather or even fabric…no idea if it’ll be light gray. I personally dislike the light gray in the n...

Re: Jetblue Fleet Thread - 2022

Also interesting that they will be standardizing the tails based on fleet type, and only 5 tails will be around.

If I’d guess…

Spotlight -> A320
Balloons -> Core A321
Ribbons -> Mint a321
Streamers -> LR/XLR
Hops -> A220

Re: JetBlue/JMP going forward with JFK terminal 6 project

If they utilize the swing gates to park two narrow bodies such as they do at terminal 4, looks to me like terminal 6 will have up to 21 new narrowbody parking positions or 12 wide body parking positions. That’s based off the 2020 render which looks to be the same as the 2021 announcement.
