From a jetBlue Press Release:

JetBlue Reduces Schedule by 5 Round-Trips
New Washington DC/Long Beach, CA Service Still Set to Begin October 8

Airline Will Continue to Serve Customers on Entire Route Network, With No Lay-offs Planned

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 20, 2001-- JetBlue Airways has announced that it will reduce its existing daily schedule by five round-trip flights starting October 1.

The airline has confirmed, however, that it will go ahead with plans to launch new
service between Washington Dulles and LA/Long Beach, starting October 8, but will
delay the opening of new service between Washington and Oakland, CA and the
addition of the airline's third daily flight between Oakland and New York's JFK, both
of which were to commence the same day.

Starting October 1, JetBlue will reduce its daily schedules between New York City's
John F. Kennedy Airport and Buffalo and Syracuse, NY by one round-trip flight each,
and between JFK and Rochester, NY by two round-trip flights. The airline will also
decrease its service between JFK and New Orleans from two to one daily round-trip
service. JetBlue confirmed that it does not have any current plans to furlough or lay-off
employees.

``These are upsetting and difficult times for New York, the nation and the world. But
we will not let our spirit be broken.'' said David Neeleman, JetBlue CEO. ``JetBlue
has already beaten the odds in its first 18 months of operation and, with the support of
our loyal customers and our dedicated employees, we will beat them again.''

Looks like jetBlue is doing OK.

New Orleans service must be a real dissapointment. They only started with twice daily and they are cutting that.

I bet some politicans are a little upset with B6 though, when the sh*t starts to hit the fan, JetBlue cuts upstate NY service, 1x SRY, 1x BUF, and 2x ROC. Shows where their priorities are. They have guarantees that they will continue that upstate NY service.

I doubt that any politician could get that pissed with an airline in today's conditions... if the planes to upstate NY are empty, why fly them? If they weren't empty, they wouldn't be getting axed.

If they were a public company and you owned their stock...you'd wish they were a private company and you'd never bought any. Don't forget JB is just starting out. They have a monstrous cash supply on hand to help them through, but you'd be surprised how quickly money flies away when planes are flying at 30% capacity or not flying at all. The past year, with last week providing the coup de grace, has been among the worst in aviation history. JB will be enormously impacted just like everyone else.

I just looked at some loads for this week and next and we are hovering around 50%. not bad, since our break even load factor is 52%.

Look for a post from "Greg" slamming us real soon!

It's sad to see jetBlue cutting flights, at least they are not laying off yet.
I think they most have lost a lot of business travel out of the upstate New York cities for them to do this. I've heard Corning in Rochester has had a lot of layoffs.

I suppose this is why no one really serves these cities that much to begin with. Hopefully they will pull through and restore service.
