Susquehanna analyst Christopher Stathoulopoulos upgraded JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ: JBLU) from Neutral to Positive with a price target of $26.00 (from $15.00).

The analyst comments "JBLU is the sixth-largest U.S. carrier, with ~6% of U.S. domestic ASMs. Pre-pandemic, JBLU was in the middle innings of a comprehensive revenue and cost initiative (Building Blocks), which was gaining momentum. JBLU struggled with unit costs in years prior (SLA CASM-ex. fuel & transport costs average of $0.079 over 2014-19, or +11% vs. LUV), contributing to its “identify crisis” as a low-cost carrier. With 21% of ASMs originating in New York, ~$150-200M of fixed cost savings coming out of 2020, and its new partnership with AAL (the Northeast Alliance), we see JBLU as well positioned into the recovery."
