You kidding me? JetBlue adding a business class is the only possible thing that could give Virgin America a run for its money in the States. Check out the video about what the new seats will look like, and then imagine taking your domestic cross country flights in one of those bad boys for what we assume will be a very competitive price.
According to Bloomberg:
Eleven of its new Airbus SAS A321 aircraft will be outfitted with lie-flat seats and several “private suites” with closable doors in hopes of gaining more of the $1.43 billion generated annually on New York-Los Angeles routes, the carrier said today in a statement. That service, debuting in 2014, also will be offered on New York-San Francisco flights.
