The Biggest Loser? JetBlue Plane Drops 1,000 Pounds

Posted March 3, 2008 by Zak Patten

Now I’m not calling them fat, but JetBlue’s A320 planes, with all of their snazzy features (DirecTV, XM Satellite Radio, lots of tasty treats), were starting to pack on the weight. Enter a new-look cabin and the aircraft will soon be 1,050 pounds lighter. And no, JetBlue didn't call this guy for help:

No gym, no pills, just a few design tweaks, and voila!

Not only will all 88 A320s in JetBlue’s fleet be trimmed down, but with new all-leather Recaro seating, “sculptured sidewall paneling, 10 percent more overhead bin space, and LED cabin lighting,” these jets will be showing off their new spring fashions, too. And just as the person who weighs less needs fewer calories to get through the day, JetBlue’s new “post-diet” aircraft will require less fuel to fly. Maybe the airline needs a new tagline. How about, “JetBlue: Leaner and Greener”?
