The New York Times > Business > JetBlue to Expand Its New York-Los Angeles Service: "JetBlue is establishing service in May between Boston and San Jose, Calif., as well as Washington and San Diego. And it plans more flights west on existing routes from Boston and Washington.
JetBlue began flying on Feb. 11, 2000, with one daily flight between J.F.K. and Fort Lauderdale. It now has 292 flights a day, serving 30 cities with 71 Airbus A320 jets, equipped with leather seats and in-flight entertainment systems.
Its newest Airbus was delivered two weeks ago, and the airline will take delivery on 13 more in 2005. Later this year, JetBlue also plans to begin flying seven 100-seat Embraer E190 regional jets.
Mr. Neeleman said the airline planned to use its big planes on transcontinental and other long-distance routes, and operate the regional jets primarily between Eastern cities."
