If there is an industry standard, it's 31 inches, not 32. I notice the extra inch in JetBlue aircraft.

Most Delta aircraft and many seats on Alaska aircraft also have 32 inches. It's close enough.

Is it enough of a difference that you will pay more or go out of your way to fly JetBlue? For some people it is, but for most it is no longer the deciding factor -- for those to whom it matters, they're generally purchasing EMS or Y+ anyway. EMS rates have recently skyrocketed anyway so they're pushing the limit on how much they can make from that particular ancillary before driving people to other carriers.

Not the ones I tend to end up in.

DL A321NEO: 31" pitch in Y
A321CEO: 31", some at 30"
737-900ER: 31" (the very few ex-Lions are 32")

Source is Aerolopa.

That's a significant portion of DL's fleet, and I didn't check others.
