JetBlue accelerates delivery of 4 Embraers

In same Aviation Weekly article –thanks Nick M for pointing this out!!

In other fleet news, JetBlue says it is accelerating the delivery of four of its Embraer 190 aircraft to this year “to take advantage of 100-seat opportunities in Boston and San Juan,” where the carrier has been substantially boosting its capacity as its competitors scale back.

The acceleration means JetBlue will receive seven of the Embraer jets this year instead of the previously scheduled three. The four additional E-190s coming this year had been scheduled for delivery in 2018.

This news could bode very well for Worcester (100 seat opportunities in Boston).
