JetBlue’s new aircraft lands at GAIA


Share post:

JETBLUE debuted its new aircraft today as it completed its maiden trip to Barbados.
General manager Terry Layne said the Airbus A321 had more passenger capacity – 190 compared to 150 on the A320 – and represented his company’s commitment to Barbados in light of American Airlines cutting direct flights to Barbados.
“We do know there is going to be some loss of capacity from one of our competitors so to ensure our pricing remains constant we decided to add additional capacity as to not drive up fares in the market. In addition we know that in certain times of the year there’s going to be additional demand . . . so we will be adding even more capacity to pick up any slack,” he said. (CA)
