JetBlue may not be flying the coop just yet.
The list of cities competing for Queens' discount airline's new corporate headquarters has been pared down to New York City and Orlando, JetBlue officials said.
City and JetBlue representatives toured several possible sites for the company's corporate offices in New York City last month, JetBlue spokesman Bryan Baldwin confirmed.
But neither he nor city officials would confirm which neighborhoods - or boroughs - were under consideration.
The move could affect more than 850 workers at the company's Forest Hills headquarters and another 74 employees at JetBlue's financial service center in Darien, Conn.
JetBlue opened a training facility in Orlando in June 2005.
