The speculation has been further fuelled by the fact that the launch order for 100 aircraft came last summer from JetBlue Airways, just about the fastest growing of the US low-cost carriers. </p> <p>With deliveries due to start in the third quarter of 2005, some analysts already behttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/The-next-revolution-180733/
