Most of the billboards throughout NYC that advertise JetBlue make reference to the TV on boards. Is this the single most important selling point to fly them? I understand the customer service is important, but is pointing out that each aircraft seat has TV the dealmaker? If this is that important to the flying public, then why doesn''t AMERICAN AIRLINES start putting in TV at each seat? (I know it costs $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$)I''m sure there are other companies that have the technology and resources to do it. AA has met the fares of JetBlue on competeing routes, (I convinced a relative to fly AMERICAN from LGB to JFK. He said the fares were the same and he appreciated the leg room, but flying with children, he missed the TV that he had when he flew JetBlue. So, maybe a good formula would be the legrrom, the larger aircraft, competitive fares and TV at each seat!
