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
``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.
