Another JetBlue Airbus A321neoLR operating a flight between Dublin and New York has suffered an engine issue again.

Without further ado, let’s get into it…

JetBlue flight B6842 is a routine scheduled flight between Dublin and New York JFK.

The affected aircraft involved in the incident is registered as N4048J.

As per data from, N4048J is a 2.8 year old Airbus A321neoLR that was delivered to the airline in June 2021.

Of the A321neo variant, JetBlue has 33 of them in the fleet, of which all but seven are in active service.

Furthermore, average fleet age for the variant at the airline stands at 2.7 years.

JetBlue flight B6842 departed Dublin at 1034 local time earlier today and proceeded westbound to New York JFK.

At the Atlantic Crossing entrance, the aircraft made a u-turn back to the Irish airport.

It is understood that the aircraft did not declare an emergency during this incident.

JetBlue flight B6842 for New York JFK landed safely back into Dublin at 1305 local time this afternoon.

It was initially reported that there was an issue with one of the engines on the aircraft.

However, JetBlue confirmed to AviationSource that this was instead an issue with the computers:

“On Wednesday, April 10, JetBlue flight 842 with scheduled service from Dublin, Ireland (DUB) to New York (JFK) returned to Dublin after our pilots reported experiencing issues with an onboard computer.”

“The flight landed safely, has since been canceled, and all customers will be accommodated on other flights.”

A Recurring Problem?

Last week, B62220 from London Heathrow to New York suffered a similar issue.

This resulted in a diversion to Shannon Airport as opposed to today’s diversion to Dublin Airport.

N2180J, the first aircraft to get the issue, was stuck in Shannon from March 30 to April 8.

It hasn’t flown since.

Initial reports indicated that today’s incident was similar to what happened on March 30.

However, this does not seem to be a recurring problem that is ongoing at the airline.

This remains a developing story. As soon as we have more information pertinent to this, then we will update you accordingly.
