Jetblue orders 30 more A321s

Jetblue has officially announced that it has ordered 30 additional Airbus A321s as the airline is extremely happy with the current A321s in its fleet especially with its trademark MINT product service.

Under the terms of the new deal, B6 will take delivery of 15 additional A321CEOs between 2017-19 out of which 5 will be configured in the MINT premium layout. The remaining 15 are for the A321NEO of which B6 has the option of converting the order into the A321NEO LR version if market dynamics warrant it which would enable them to fly to UK and Ireland nonstop from BOS + JFK. 

In total once all aircraft are delivered, it will result in B6 having a fleet of 79 A321s. The MINT configuration is 16J (flat bed seats) + 143Y where as the normal A321 configuration is 190Y.
