I guess no one saw this section of the press release?
"This press release contains statements of a forward-looking nature which represent our management's beliefs and assumptions concerning future events. Forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions and are based on information currently available to us. Actual results may differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements due to many factors, including without limitation, potential hostilities in the Middle East or other regions, our ability to implement our growth strategy and our dependence on the New York market, our fixed obligations and our limited operating history, seasonal fluctuations in our operating results, increases in maintenance costs, fuel prices and interest rates, our competitive environment, our reliance on sole suppliers, government regulation, our failure to properly integrate LiveTV or enforce its patents, our ability to hire qualified personnel, the loss of key personnel and potential problems with our workforce including work stoppages, and continuing changes in the airline industry following the September 11th terrorist attacks and the increased risk of future attacks, the potential risks with the delivery, placing into service and integration into our operations of the EMBRAER 190 aircraft as well as the potential liability relating to our handling of customer data. Additional information concerning these and other factors is contained in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings, including but not limited to, the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q. We undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances that may arise after the date of this release."
If you notice midway down the paragraph it states, "our failure to properly integrate LiveTV or enforce its patents, our ability to hire qualified personnel, the loss of key personnel and potential problems with our workforce including work stoppages." I guess it appears that management does not have much personal faith in their employees. I found it hilarious when I read about the LGA
slots and saw that at the bottom. I even have the Yahoo link if anyone would like it.
As far as Jetblue getting the slots at LGA
, I am sure they will get them and wish them well, but this is completely against Neeleman's guarantee upon starting Jetblue. I remember shortly after the naming of the airline as well as naming the NY hub, he said that flying from JFK
was the only airport that B6
preferred to fly from because the area was screaming for a hometown airline. He said that the other two airports would not be considered because of EWR
Continental hometown presence and because of LGA
's horrendous operations. The only reason I see for this is because Jetblue has heard that not many New Yorkers like going to JFK
is so much closer to "home" for most. Plus, AA
and Song must really by doing quite well from LGA
to come in and try. A day late and a dollar short if you ask me.
I don't have a microwave, but I do have a clock that occasionally cooks shit.
