Outside of the Hawaii schedules I've also heard that WN has successfully negotiated the rights to buy the 7 JFK slots from the JetBlue/American deal. Enjoy or Don't Flyguy There's no way that WN would go for JFK before re-entering EWR. Also, why on earth is an HA/WN acquisition being discussed? How...
