Twice as big of an airbus base. A lot better seniority and move variety of trips so most people can get their full of what they want.

Well JFK/320 is Jetblueís largest base by a wide margin, so a lot more flying with a large number of commuters is probably one reason. I would venture to guess a lot more people live in base in Boston/NH, but I donít have any data to back that claim up.

If you live close to domicile, donít mind more reserve and also dont mind two long-term training events in two years, then yeah the Airbus is a good option. Itís also ok to admit that you want to fly a bigger airplane with much more desirable overnights...Iím sure thatís the reasoning of most people honestly.

That would honestly be my reason. Iíll happily admit Iíve had enough if northeast turns and NY state layovers.
