JetBlue Airways JetBlue has successfully implemented an integrated strategy operating a single-type aircraft fleet in a focused segment of the market. The company had success in gaining market share along the existing routes and wanted to expand into medium-sized cities that were being served by legacy carriers’ regional airlines. As JetBlue moved into these markets with shorter flights they realized a need for a more suitable aircraft. Having a smaller jet would make it easier to enter these new markets because of their lower break-even load and it would help to increase passenger loads on their original point-to-point flights. Because of the strategic alliance with Embraer, JetBlue played a significant role in designing the interior of the aircraft to improve passenger comfort, a key component of their differentiation strategy.
Boeing is the largest exporter by value in the United States. The manufacturing process experienced a major change and there was less production delays than before which not only helped in keeping an efficient flow when it came to their supply chain but also helped in better customer service which of course helped them hold on to crucial market share. Gaining market share of course hugely elevated their problems of losing customers or market share to Airbus (who in order to turn away customers from Boeing had initially adopted the strategy to lower prices of their products). Of course the customers were airline companies. Boeing’s success depended directly on the success of those airline companies.

Organizational risks are specific factors (unique to every organization) that arise within all businesses; potential risks that may threaten JetBlue’s ability to satisfy stockholder expectations are jet fuel prices, retaining sufficient staff and exceeding projected operating costs.
