NEW YORK and WASHINGTON, Feb. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) today revealed plans to nearly double its popular service from New York's LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), increasing flights at both convenient airports by eight roundtrips daily to at least 16 roundtrips by this summer. The growth is made possible by the airline's recent acquisition of slots through an FAA auction.
