JetBlue to overhaul cabins

JetBlue said on Monday that it's ready to overhaul the cabins of its A320 jets. The carrier say the restyling of all 130 of its A320s marks the first complete redesign of A320 interiors since JetBlue launched in 2000. The A320 cabin overhaul will include the addition of JetBlue's "Fly-Fi gate-to-gate" high-speed Internet and new high-definition seatback TV screens. JetBlue also will add power outlets and USB ports at every seat. JetBlue officials say the restyling is partially an attempt to make the A320 cabin interiors more like the interiors found on the airline's newer A321s, which get higher ratings from customers.
