    At present jetBlue is looking at launching its London route in the second half of 2021. The will to hammer-out a New York to London route has been in the air for a while now for the North American carrier. Naturally the airline is looking to make this route a reality with the 13 A321LR and 13 A321XLRs it has on order currently with Airbus. The first A321LRs for jetBlue are expected to arrive in early 2021 and therefore should give the airline enough time to execute the launching of this route in the second half of the year. The airline's Chief Robin Hayes is hopeful that Corona virus would have eased up significantly by then allowing a better chance for public travel. The airline initially is looking to fly to London from JFK and BOS although it has declined to saw which London airport is on the cards. The A321LR that will fly on this route will feature the updated version of the MINT service and cabin. Below is the tail of the first A321LR for JB.

    It appears that in the future -if Qantas gets its way- that the airline will be mandating that passengers who fly with them must be vaccinated for Covid-19. The idea was floated by the airline's chief executive Alan Joyce on an interview on an Australian channel. "We are looking at changing our terms and conditions to say for international travelers… we will ask people to have a vaccination before they can get on the aircraft," Joyce stated today during the interview.

    Virgin Australia is back to life and has changed up its orderbook for the Boeing 737 MAX. originally it was going to go with the MAX 8 but since the MAX was recently ungrounded and cleared to return to service the airline appears to have changed its MAX orders, going now with the longest variant of th3 MAX, the MAX 10 and scrapping the previous MAX 8s. The 25 MAX 10 units in this latest order should start to deliver by 2023 for Virgin Australia and again this is subject to how Covid-19 treats the industry.

    Looks like Transport Canada has validated the updates and changes to MAX and will likely lead to their ungrounding of the aircraft type in January.
