I'm a Boeing fan.
The seating they selected is disappointing. I flew an American jet from LAX to JFK with 2-2 lie flat seats in business and they were great for a red eye where you didn't have to get up. But these are a bit too "versatile" and "Premium Economy-ish." Considering that airlines will always be bailed out, why not just spend and get a great fleet with features that no one can touch?
321 or 737, it's still an aluminum tube flying bus with seats built for midgets, I would take a DC 7 or Constellation any day even if it took longer.
It will compete by getting you to the West coast on time or early with a highly professional crew and a world-class operations team. I guess the upside to those MINT seats is you'll get to sit in them for several hours longer on each flight as JetBlue performs in its usual half-assed manner and delivers your comfortable butt a few hours late on EVERY flight.
don't know how it will compete with Jetblue offering MINT flat seats in First as opposed to recliner on DL on transcontinental out of BOS.
I imagine these new planes will be used on short flights, not transcontinental.
