JetBlue to offer flights to London from New York and Boston

It will switch 13 existing orders to the A321LR, which can fly 4,000 nautical miles-sufficient to hop from the northeast Western Europe-and can seat 206 passengers.

JetBlue is taking a jump across the pond, that's, after mulling over it for quite a long time. Most airlines providing transatlantic flights cost more money to maintain and sell pricey tickets to match, while the low-priced carriers often charge you extra to bring along a tiny purse.

Geraghty called on United States and European regulators to "create conditions" for smaller carriers to thrive, saying the larger airlines had been allowed to get bigger and stifle competition.

JetBlue, which is also Boston's largest airline, said the new routes to London will be served by Airbus A321LR and will mark the first-ever transatlantic service offered by the award-winning airline.

That seat is tipped to be Thompson Aero's Vantage Solo, with JetBlue taking honours as launch airline for the next generation of the original Vantage seat which adorns its current A320 Mint cabin (below) and helped JetBlue carve up the U.S. transcontinental market. They'll be outfitted like the Airbus airplanes which JetBlue flies routes but using more lie-flat seats. "It puts cities like Dublin and perhaps Amsterdam in scope". "While a logical move longer term, we believe JetBlue's entrance into the trans-Atlantic could be an overhang on investor sentiment".

Benjamin Netanyahu's rival party concedes Israeli election

Hazard urged Real Madrid to approach Chelsea
I can't predict the future. "Great players are always welcome, but we have a great squad already, and we will win things again". It's not simple to play the football he wants to play but I think now we have started to understand.

Delta President Glen Hauenstein reacted that his airline has witnessed other carriers try to compete throughout the Atlantic.

Delta seemed to throw down a gauntlet last week when it joined with Virgin Atlantic and announced plans to serve London's Gatwick Airport from NY and Boston sometime in 2020 - details were sparse.

"There are always new entrants coming and there always entrants leaving", he said, adding that he thinks Delta is "in a very good spot". The carrier has created an internal team to begin securing USA regulatory approval for extended flights over water. JetBlue has hired industry veterans with experience in the FAA process, and it will tap outside help, Hayes said.

JetBlue will finally take you to London.
