On another note, is it likely we see another route announcement within the next month or two? The last one was centered completely around NYC, contrary to their last ones.
MCO is way down on the list of places to grow in.
I think what happened last week is the first salvo, there will be more adds in first half of this year. This was circulated internally regarding the NEA.
"Look for an initial phase of codeshare and route announcements in the next few weeks with more over the coming months." More in NYC are coming.
A321NEO deliveries this week.
https://aibfamily.flights/A320/9398 2060J delivered yesterday
https://aibfamily.flights/A320/9245 2059J delivered today
https://aibfamily.flights/A320/10101 2015J delivered today
The first 2 were all-core configs that were built last year and only got delivered this year. The 3rd one is the first A321NEO mint.
The first LR had its 4th test flight a week ago. It should be ready to be delivered soon.
The second A321NEO mint? just had its first test flight
Quite a few deliveries this first quarter that are planned. I think they will be ready to unveil the y cabin on LR/NEO mint soon.
It looks like LAX will open MSC in May from what was said in the last LAWA board meeting. Still unclear whether B6 will be asked to move out.
I would be very surprised if this happens. But I do expect all the ULCCs from T-5 and boutique/mokulele/VivaAerobus to move there.

At SFO, the T-3 renovation is on hold, but the T-1 renovation are proceeding as planned. Here are the interesting parts.
"The third phase of Harvey Milk Terminal 1 will add seven more gates and a connecting walkway to the International Terminal sparing passengers the need to exit and re-enter security expected to be completed by Memorial Day and new connecting walkways between Terminals 2 and 3 will open in October, if all goes as planned."
"“If you’re American, Southwest, Jetblue, you have more to be excited about,” said Yakel, “because there’s more gates coming on at Terminal 1" (yakel is a SFO spokesman)
There will be 25 gates in T-1 after this and basically just AA/WN/B6. SFO has never been less gate constrained for B6. If they didn't just get promised more gates at LAX, this would be the chance of a life time in west coast for JetBlue. We will see. SFO is clearly asking for airlines to add request for these new gates.
