As a stockholder in JBLU I can tell you from their last earnings report that there waas a lot of talk about the emerging market for JBLU in MCO. No Jetblue will not be purchasing longer hauled aircraft anytime soon. No they will not be setting up interantional routes to Australia, Asia, or Africa. They will continue to expand their route system out of KBOS, KJFK, and KMCO (yes not KFLL). Those airports will be expected to become the main bases of operation for JBLU in the future. In regards to KMCO, Jetblue’s cadet program facility is based at KMCO and there was a strong bid from Orlando in 2012 to be the new headquarters of JBLU. While that didnt happen MCO has become the leading airport in Florida, and a much more attractive market for JBLU to serve compared to KFLL. With JBLU being the first and largest operator out of the currently under construction terminal C at KMCO, Jetblue will be opening increasing their daily flights capacity at KMCO by 58% to 100 flights per day.This will result in a moving a large amount of flights from KFLL to KMCO and focusing KMCO as their Latin America entry point.
JBLU is also looking strongly into a larger order of A321LRs for KBOS/KJFK-Europe flights in the near future but any announcement is not expect for a few years as Jetblue begins to assess a west coast hub and deals with the incerased costs from the recent unionizing of their flight crew.
