JetBlue: New Aircraft Rollout Not So Smooth

David Neeleman, JetBlue’s CEO, said recently that the rollout of its new Embraer 190 jets has not gone as smoothly as he had hoped.  The aircraft have experienced greater delays than expected, due partly to technical issues with the planes and partly to what Neeleman says are problems "of their own doing." (that’s sorta awkward as I re-read that—he meant that there were aircraft-specific issues and JetBlue-specific issues.  I want to be as clear as possible, lest Oprah bring me on her show and yell at me).

He concluded saying that the launch of the 190 "hasn’t been up to what we thought we could do."
