DALLAS — JetBlue (B6) has unveiled plans for three new seasonal summer routes in 2024, enhancing its services to Ireland and Scotland. These routes will complement the carrier’s existing operations in London (LHR), Paris (CDG), and Amsterdam (AMS).
The airline will operate these flights with an Airbus A321neos, featuring 160 seats, including 16 Mint Suite business class seats and 144 economy class seats. While these planes showcase B6’s latest cabins, it’s important to note that the configuration is not as premium as the Airbus A321LRs, which offer more Mint seats.
New York (JFK) to Dublin (DUB) Route: Between March 13 and September 30, 2024, B6 will operate a daily seasonal flight from JFK to DUB. The flight schedule is as follows:
- B6841: JFK to DUB, departing 9:30 PM, arriving at 8:15 AM (+1 day)
- B6842: DUB to JFK, departing 11:45 AM, arriving at 3:25 PM
This 3,179-mile flight is blocked at 6 hours and 45 minutes eastbound and 7 hours and 40 minutes westbound. B6 will face competition from Aer Lingus (EI), Delta Air Lines (DL), and United Airlines (UA). It is worth noting that B6 has a close partnership with EI.
