Reported by Chris Sloan for Airliner World magazine, JetBlue today introduced the all-new onboard experience aboard the airline’s Airbus A220-300.
The aircraft, registration N3008J, is the first delivery of 70 A220-300 aircraft that JetBlue has on order, which will be phased in to replace the existing fleet of 60 Embraer 190 aircraft. The A220 is replacing JetBlue’s Embraer E-190s fleet, on a 1 for 1 basis, through 2025.
