Which A319s? I assume the new-build AA ones? It's hard to imagine that US would have gone for a hot rod configuration to tootle around the east coast.
I never heard US or AA A319 struggle to do a mission, short of perhaps PHX-ANC full bags. Like the 73G, the 319 have plenty of power and a big wing. AA flies them to DFW and ORD and LAX. This is not a surprise imo
EGE seems to require the "high performance" jets, 752, A319, 73G, E75. The CR7 would qualify too. (edit: and yes, AA/SkyWest fly PHX-EGE on CR7, and DL/SkyWest fly SLC-EGE on CR7)
Since JetBlue does not operate any of these types, JetBlue would not be serving EGE anytime soon.
I'd imagine the A220 will have the performance to fly to JFK from EGE?
Biggest issue for A220 would be baggage space.
