The airline JetBlue is preparing to eliminate or postpone some 27 flight routes starting this summer due, among other things, to the impact of the pandemic on its workforce.

The New York-based carrier told The Points Guy in early January that the move will affect underperforming routes.

Many of these routes were routes we added in response to flight trends for the pandemic to help us bring immediate cash to the door. As our customers return to expected booking patterns, these changes will free up aircraft time that we can redeploy to the areas of our network that have the greatest strength and relevance to our long-term strategy.” moment mentioned that only 17 routes would be interrupted.

This week, Simple Flying reviewed the 27 routes that JetBlue will temporarily suspend or not fly anymore.
