Jetblue Flight 382

Tue Feb 01, 2005 4:59 am

In March I will be flying B6 FLL-LGA on flight 382 and then LGA-FLL on flight 381. Anybody know which plane I will get does it vary or do they use the same plane for the route. Any chance I could get on the new one?

Perhaps someone at JetBlue can correct me, but I am willing to bet there is no way of knowing at this time. It all depends on scheduling, probably a decision that will be made no more than 2 or 3 days out from your trip. Aircraft get swapped all the time, often very last minute.
This is definitely the case at other airlines and I am sure B6 is no different.

So, the short answer is NO IDEA and all their planes are relatively 'new', the oldest being barely 5 years old in March.
None shall pass!!!!

You definitely won't know until a few days before the trip, and even then you need to know someone who has access to that type of info, like someone who works for JetBlue.

That's what I figured with mx and things like that. This will be my first trip with them so no doubt I will be impressed no matter what.

Also it hard with B6 since they have so many A320s and all different routes and they have a lot of flights to thier destinations daily.

what days in March...I am flying to JFK with them on March 4-7 and I will have the pleasure of flying flight 382 on April 8 and 383 on April 10!

Last time I flew B6 to LGA I was on 379/380 and I got Hopelessly Devoted to Blue both times!

I'll be flying them on March 9th and 13th. I can't wait since I have heard nothing but great things about them.

No airline sets its aircraft daily fleet schedule until a day or two before the actual day....also no airline employee that cares about their job would give out such information in fear of loosing it. For security reasons that is proprietary.

How does the info regarding what plane will be flying have anything to do with security? I don't think it would really affect the terrorists what plane they will be flying on.

BTW Regarding employees giving that info out, you obviously haven't been reading the Peter Max threads.  Big grin

So for security reasons I guess that the airlines shouldn't tell their customers what time the flights are leaving either.

I can understand why yields/load factors are proprietary information (and hince why IF I ever ask I will completely understand if no one tells me)

However... I don't see what equipment/turn scheduling has to do with security. Anyone who would be able to do anything evil to an aircraft as a result of this information would likely have direct access to this info (MX, disgruntled CSR, whatever) already.

That being said... I was most unimpressed by just about every aspect of my recent flights on AA, that combined with the fact that I can't earn miles on either NW or UA with them would make it extremely unlikely that I would ever choose AA again. Except for the nice AA folks here who not only told me which birds I would be on, but what flights they were comming off of... a great bit of PR for the avaiationally inclined-- cost the airline nothing but earned future business...

I could see in a few ways why it would be a security issue however jetblue's fleet is all the same and when you book on most airline sites it does say what type of aircraft you will be on. I was just curious as to what tail I would get and what crazy name the plane would have such as "Mystic Blue" or "Can't stop loving blue" I guess I will just have to wait and see.

Actually I can guarantee you that you will be on an
Airbus A320-232 with IAE V2500 engines.
Sorry I can't honestly get you the rego, noone will know until a few days before, if they have access to the B6 system.
What now?

Well, as someone that actually works in the industry I can think of plenty reasons why the general public has no reason the know until they stand at the gate what actual aircraft will fly a certain flight on a given day. Second, that schedule is not even even made avaiable until a few days before that given travel day. Third, even on that day, the fleet usage schedule changes often. Back when I worked Line MX by the end of the day my copy had so many changes and adjustments on it you could hardly make out what was on it.

As for Peter Max... I can't wait until the ugly POS gets repainted soon.

As for your profile and baseball.. I can't wait either. 180 Million dollar pay roll and you where 5 outs away....and then LOST 4 streight to the SOX.. this year you dumped even more money into the payroll and got a nearly washed up pitcher. Sure the 'Big Unit' can still throw some heat, but for the money spent it was a bad deal. I'll take my 'Bunch of Idiots' anyday.

Once you get ON that plane, it'll be easy to tell which one it is: the smellier it is, the older  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
