How have the preparations for the JetBlue deliveries progressed?

The context is intense; there are several things going back and forth. Our technical people are in New York, their technical people are here…everything is going all right; JetBlue is preparing for the delivery very  professionally. I have never seen such a preparation for an entry into service. I anticipate they will do quite well.
