Older airplanes, lower cost structure- could work.....

The A321neo LRs you mention, with a range of 4000nmi/4600mi, JetBlue could perform JFK-LHR , JFK-FRA, JFK-CDG or other second tier airports without a problem. Would be interesting to change the dynamics of legacy carriers in this way. We shall see what happens!
I'd like to see them do a BOS-MAN like American used to do, or even a BOS-LHR would be good, especially since Boston is Jet Blue hub.

Would you do it in the 757's that Iceland Air uses to get to Reykjavik?
Only if in a pinch and then only in Business. Does Iceland Air even have Business?

Yes Icelandair (I spelled it wrong the first time) does have the equivalent of business class, they call it Saga Class.
