Aviation JetBlue redoing interior of A320 jets By Robert Silk / January 28, 2016 Share 1 More than 100 channels will be offered on high-definition televisions via DirecTV, up from the 36 that JetBlue offers today. -- JetBlue has announced details of a planned cabin overhaul for its 130-plane Airbus A320 fleet.The remodeled interiors will offer increased in-flight connectivity and entertainment options for passengers, the carrier said.The remodeling won’t be all good news for JetBlue passengers, however. The planes will hold 162 seats, up from the 150 that they currently contain. As a result, the distance between rows, known in industry parlance as pitch, will decrease from the current 34 inches to 32 inches — still more than the typical cabin seat on a U.S. airline.“Because we are using new ergonomic seats that are not only more comfortable but thinner, the change in pitch will not impact the feeling of generous legroom that our customers love,” JetBlue spokesman Doug McGraw said.The overhaul, which will be the first JetBlue has undertaken on its A320 craft since the airline launched in 2000, is scheduled to begin next year and to be completed in 2019.“We launched JetBlue with a customer-focused experience that no one expected from an airline,” said Jamie Perry, JetBlue’s vice president of brand and product development. “Travel preferences have changed in the last 15 years, and we’re investing in what customers want today.”The remodeled cabins will feature gate-to-gate Wi-Fi, meaning that passengers will be able to stay connected during takeoff and landing. In addition, all seats will be equipped with an AC power outlet and a USB port.Passengers will also enjoy new high-definition televisions in every seat, which at 10 inches are twice as big as the screens that are currently part of JetBlue’s A320 fleet. More than 100 channels will be offered on the televisions via DirecTV, up from the 36 that JetBlue offers today.
