The company is characterized by a favorable business model, cost-saving steps, expansion initiatives and beneficial partnerships. Growing travel demand, network and fleet restructuring, premium on-board services along with attractive entertainment options and foray into new locations are expected to boost the company’s performance, leading to revenue and earnings growth in the coming months. Nevertheless, we prefer to stay on the sidelines, considering JetBlue’s weaker-than-expected fourth quarter results, unstable economic conditions across the globe, competitive threats and regulatory issues. “
