Just a follow-up on my post yesterday about an “important” JetBlue announcement coming on April 10th. Now I’m even more convinced JetBlue will announce service to London.
Recall, the email stated:
Save the Date
JETBLUE ALL HANDS
Join us for a chat about JetBlue’s vision and strategy followed by a Crewmember after-party.
Wednesday, April 10, 2019
New York City
Doors open at 1500ET
All Crewmembers are welcome to watch via webcast or attend in person.
Stay tuned for details on how to RSVP for you and a guest. Tickets to attend in person will be first-come first-served.
I only received the text of the email and still speculated that it was about service to Europe. But after someone forwarded me the actual email, I am even more convinced JetBlue will announce service to London.
Look at the email below. What do you notice?
The background of the email is the same moquette (carpet) as you will find on the London Underground.

I suppose this could all be a cruel trick from JetBlue, but I doubt it. Rumors of European service have been going on too long. One self-identified JetBlue crewmember even emailed me yesterday with the following:
Crewmember London brief has already been done. Boston to Heathrow on the A321XLR with mint configuration to start (no date set, waiting for new 321). Widebodies being looked at for fleet expansion if London is a success (330 and 787).
Let’s also not forget the strong hint released in an employee video in December:
So now we have over a month to wait and see. But after seeing the email and reading the feedback it generated, I am more convinced than ever before than JetBlue is starting service to London.
If not, JetBlue really played a mean trick on all of us…
