I think it "officially" enters service on Thursday with the inaugural BOS-MSP flight, then it will be semi-assigned to do a lot of JFK-RSW turns. It is still the only one, although they are doing crew training/familiarization flights on regular (not yet converted) A320s (with the difference being that four FAs are scheduled instead of three) to prepare them for the changes.

It went to Bermuda and Palm Beach when it officially entered service today.

OK, so this is the plan. Info and images are from JetBlue, resized to make them forum-appropriate.

Phase 1 is to restyle older tired A320s with their A321 interior. I think they're doing this because it can't wait.







Phase 2 is to install new Rockwell Collins Meridian slimlines (This is what Southwest is using, except with IFE. IFE appears to be similar to Virgin America's Red; android based with many entertainment options)

So does this mean the awful, universally-hated SpaceFlex A320 bathroom plan has been put on an indefinite hold???

Pretty much. There are a couple minor differences but it is basically the A321 Core interior.

The only similarity between RED and the new AVANT IFE system going on JetBlue is that they are based on a custom Android build. RED was a Panasonic Avionics product; AVANT is a Thales kit.

No. It will be on every A320/A321 except the Mint fleet.

N510JB was sent to Mobile (BFM) today. This is one of JetBlue's contracted paint shops (as well as the Airbus factory in the US). Maybe it will come back in a new special paint scheme. Or maybe it will come back as yet another JetBlue Vacations plane.

Can you say Even More Specials?

I think N957JB may be returning right now from SAL.

https://flightaware.com/live/flight/...210Z/MSLP/KJFK

This is an A321, so this isn't the A320 refresh. It spent 8 days down there, any idea what might have been done to it? Anybody on the JFK-STI flight tomorrow who could check this out?

Heavy maintenance checks.

Isn't SAL an MRO that does D checks not cabin work?

It's been there about 2 days, looks like commissioning takes about 2 weeks, so maybe it'll enter service mid-December?

N629JB was sent to LCQ 12/7. N627JB returned from LCQ on 12/7 as well.

There should be another one returning from LCQ 12/9 as flight 6420.

I haven't been able to keep track of everything going to SAL, so I'd appreciate any updates if someone happens to see any A320s going to/from there.

N509JB returned from SAL 12/2/18. This one does not appear to have the new cabin.

N593JB went to SAL 12/3/18 and returned from SAL 12/7/18. That's not enough time to do a cabin refresh. A quick inventory check also shows 150 as well
