jetBlue likely to convert outstanding Embraer 190 orders to Embraer 190-E2s

jetblue logoIndications are that jetBlue Airways will convert its remaining Embraer 190 orders to the re-engined Embraer 190-E2. This assumption is based on the airline’s recent announcement that it would defer deliveries of twenty-four Embraer 190 from the 2014-18 delivery period to beyond 2022. While jetBlue has not explicitly stated that they would be changing to the E2 aircraft series, the timing of the planned delivery dates tends to make that idea a strong possibility.
