Good news for JetBlue fans in New Jersey: The airline will begin service from Newark to 5 cities in Florida and Puerto Rico beginning in October. Fares start at $69.
Incidentally, this article notes that JetBlue will begin service with its new Embraer 190s starting in November, though the cities they will serve have not yet been determined. You will hear lots of blabber about JetBlue now using regional jets, but don’t believe a word of it. The new planes are actually more spacious than the current A320s (though smaller), and have only 2-by-2 seating, so no one will be stuck with a middle seat. There world used to be split on whether these planes were a good idea for JetBlue…I am firmly in the good idea camp. Everyone likes more room and no middle seats.
