JetBlue to Ink Long-Awaited Aer Lingus Deal


JetBlue has been tossing around the idea of a deal with Aer Lingus since before then-CEO David Neeleman left his post.

Today, reports say the airline will finally announce a deal with Aer Lingus Friday morning in Dublin.

The WSJ reports online today that the deal will be a strategic partnership that will allow passengers to make reservations on flights between Ireland and more than 40 U.S. destinations, with connections at JetBlue’s hub at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.
