JetBlue delay

It will surprise no one that JetBlue, the New York JFK based quality low-cost operator has delayed the start-up for its London services.

No date has been set but the carrier cites delays at Airbus for late delivery of the A321XLRs on order.

Speaking to Bloomberg Robin Hayes, CEO, indicated a start in quarter three next year and was reticent regarding which London airport JetBlue would use. “We have a number of options,” he said, which translated means any of Gatwick, Heathrow, Luton or Stansted, with slots currently available at all of them.

There is another small hurdle, which should be easily overcome – the carrier will need to complete ETOP (extended range) certification under FAA rules.
