JETBLUE AIRWAYS CORPORATION Competition
JetBlue Airways is counting on more than low fares to make its ledgers jet-black. The carrier offers one-class service -- with leather seats, satellite TV from DIRECTV, satellite radio from XM, and movies -- to about 80 cities with 850 daily flights in more than 20 US states, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and about a dozen countries in the Caribbean and Latin America. Most of its flights arrive or depart from Boston; Los Angeles; New York; Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, Florida; and San Juan, Puerto Rico. JetBlue's fleet of about 170 aircraft consists mainly of Airbus A320s but also includes Embraer 190s.
