JetBlue’s new A320 takes flight

Phase 1: A very good place to start

Phase 1 brings larger screens and updated IFE on board. LED lighting, too. These dozen A320s will look almost exactly like the JetBlue A321s.

The Thales AVANT IFE is a HUGE upgrade from the LiveTV kit JetBlue flies today. Almost as if the wait to get here is worthwhile.

Worth the wait?

  • AVANT over LTV4/STV+
  • Better power outlet location
  • Updated seatback pocket design
  • Only 12 extra seats instead of 15 (grading on a curve for this one)
  • Power ports in the galley for crew
