Wow, good for them. They barely made one, but a profit is a profit.

Its good but then again its not that good.
Over the same period last year, sales rose apx 30 per cent
that's grand! Very Very good!
However, profit dropped 50 per cent.
Next quarter should show if they stay black.
Indicators say probably not, but we shall see in July when second quarter figures are released.
JetBLue is still pushing the right buttons.
safe

Good for them. Does anyone know what WN's results were?

One has to consider B6 has been expanding and adding capacity (74th A320 delivered some days ago) while most other airlines have been reducing their fleets.

jetBlue definately has the right buisness model. Prices similar to WN, but more frills like the free directTV. They are expanding at the right pace too. Does anyone know if they have plans to service IND?

Absolutely. Neeleman just said some days ago that they were considering the sale of food, so it would be another step forward (and eliminate a disadvantage in competition with Song). A combination of free snacks and food sale would be very attractive.

Does B6 hedge their fuel? I mean they have the financial capacity to do so, but I wonder if that is why the results are skewed a bit, like WN who would have produced a loss without the hedging. This shows how bad these fuel prices are getting.


Looking forward to the new AA

So true. I've "heard" that any annual expansion rate > 15% cuts that year's profit due to the startup costs of new planes (training, financing, route proving, etc.) But this should help B6 in the long run!

Interesting how this the "happy $7 million thread" versus:
