Re: LGB doubles fines on JetBlue's late-night flight violations

It seems like JetBlue has gotten on the waiting list for sna slots based on their recent annual report. There is some gate space at Burbank. There is room at lax for additions given all the slacks in the t5 gates. And up the road at sfo, it looks like as will consolidate in t2 at some point so JetBl...
