“The cabin proposed for the Jet Blue Airlines A321 (U.S. operator) is a two class layout, with 16 business class seats and 143 economy class seats (159 passengers),” says Airbus.

Now I just need to become familiar with their routes. Looks like someone is going to cash in on WN's debacle of FL.

This service is very likely going in to a subfleet only serving transcons to LAX/SFO.

At least it's a start. The problem for me is that JetBlue really doesn't fly many of the places that I need to go. Route expansion would be nice also.

Maybe JetBlue or Frontier would consider a mini-hub in ATL.

They tried it - albeit half-heartedly - a decade ago (http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/trave...iveoct24_x.htm).

But man, wouldn't it be great if they gave ATL another shot to counteract this WN misery?
