Tweet Picks:

@e_russell JetBlue has no news on either the future of the E190 fleet or a potential A321LR order, says CFO Priest.

@justinbachman $ALK appears to be ditching NYC and DC from Dallas, citing better opportunities on the West Coast. #airlines #capacity.

@justinbachman $JBLU CEO Robin Hayes dumps quite chilly water on a suggestion the airline may consider regional carrier CPAs for some/any role in replacing 100-seat E190s. #airlines #regional #PaxEx.

@WandrMe $JBLU CEO Hayes: “We haven’t made any announcement [about Europe]. If we choose to convert an existing A321neo to A321LR we have to give Airbus 2 year’s notice to do that.” So summer 2020 would be the earliest, and that’s unlikely right now. #AvGeek #PaxEx.

@WandrMe The @JetBlue CC doubled active users in under 2 years since switching from AmEx to Barclays. $JBLU #Ancillary.
