Could JetBlue be a new Dreamliner customer?

JetBlue Airways, the New York-based discount carrier, says it is considering expanding its route structure throughout Latin America, a move that it says would require it to buy larger, longer range jets.

JetBlue Airways CEO Dave Barger told the Los Angeles Times that among the jets the airline is considering is Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner.

JetBlue has never bought a Boeing aircraft. Its mainline fleet consists of Airbus A320s and Embraer E-jets.

The airline has expanded its network into the Caribbean from Florida and New York. It also flies to San Jose in Costa Rica and Bogota in Columbia.
