I came across a document from Airbus saying that JetBlue's Billing address is 6322 South 3000 East Suite L 201, Salt Lake City, UT. That makes sense since the CEO is from Utah, but I wondered is that correct? I did an over head search and came across the building (Picture) and wondered do they use the entire building or just a part of it? And is that turely their place or are they located somewhere else in Salt Lake City.
P.S here was the line for the document.
"...and JetBlue Airways Corporation, a corporation organized and existing under the laws of the State of Delaware, United States of America, having its principal corporate offices located at 6322 South 3000 East, Suite L-201, Salt Lake City, UT 84121, USA (hereinafter referred to as the "Buyer")."

I believe I read in Blue Streak that Neelman got started in Salt Lake (there are a lot employees there -- many telemarketing), but that the intension was always to start from New York. In 1999, they may not have yet signed the lease in their current head quarters in Forest Hills, NY (Queens, not too far from the airport). Could it be that the initial paperwork was done out of Neelman's lawyer's office? The lawyer -- if I recollect correctly -- was involved in both Morris and then the early stages of B6.

I believe JetBlue's reservations agents are based in SLC. (Yes, I know they work from home, but mostly in the SLC area). I don't know what other operational stuff they have in SLC but nothing would surprise me considering that's where Neeleman is from and basically where the idea of JBU got into his head.
Sometimes we don't realize the good times when we're in them
Salt Lake City has a diversified economy. The mining of materials, including copper, silver, lead, zinc, coal, and iron ore, is important to the city's industrial base. Southwest of the city is Bingham Canyon, which includes the Kennecott Copper Mine, one of the largest open-pit mines in the world. Church, government, finance, education, research, high-technology industries, transportation, recreation, and tourism account for most of the city's employment. Among the city's largest employers are the federal and state governments, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the University of Utah, Kennecott Corporation, and Delta Airlines.
No mention of JetBlue...
All this leads me to believe that their current HQ are in Forest Hills, NY, and as far as i remember and can tell, only their reservation office and flight training programs are in Salt Lake City. I remember reading an article that Salt Lake was chosen not only because of Neelmans past there, but the fact that Salt Lake has the highest percentage of people that are bilangual or more, which makes sense for a reservation center.
life wasn't worth the balance, or the crumpled paper it was written on

Hey that building is less than five minutes from my house. Cool.
Anyways, JetBlue does occupy this building. From what I understand, Reservations and most customer service work (other than airport) is done here, and yes JetBlue also has a number of reservation agents who work from home. There is probably more done here too, I don't know.
According to business.utah.gov, JetBlue has 1000-1999 employees (rather broad, eh?) in Salt Lake City.
