Re: JetBlue Airport Outsourcing

Rumored cities are:

BUR, SMF, RNO, PHX, ABQ, MSP, DEN, DFW, CLE, ROC, SYR, SRQ, SAV, ORH, ALB, BTV.

Employees in some of the listed stations have confirmed the closure of their station, but I think it would be best to wait for an official statement.

JetBlue’s management team is extremely conservative and their focus over the past two years has been conserving capital and reducing costs. 2. Why spend billions on a merger with HA when they could keep the current codeshare agreement ...

Re: Why is JetBlue's On Time Performance so Bad?

Very high fleet utilization, short turn times, lean crew staffing and not allowing Tech Ops to have enough time to clear maintenance issues leads to the poor performance. Simply put, B6 chooses to perform badly because their operation looks good on paper (high utilization, lean staffing, etc).
