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. It owns one subsidiary, in-flight entertainment system developer LiveTV.
