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).Jump to post
Both the pilots and flight attendants followed company procedures regarding a suspected fume event: 1. Contacting maintenance 2. Contacting and being evaluated by medical professionals 3. Filing a report and meeting with company representatives following the flight At the end of the day, we don’t kn...Jump to post

So after other airlines were banished to LGW and waited 10s of years and spent millions of dollars to get LHR slots.......B6 should get slots in the name of "competition?" When they are a crappy competitor (see DOT on time stats) to begin with? Hey, as long as we are going down this route...Jump to post

ABM is Delta and JetBlue’s catering business partner in Boston.
Yup and the switch over this summer was a total disaster. About 6ish years ago jetblue stopped doing its own catering. Big mistake.
Does B6 also use ABM for their MINT service?
Its not possible that DL has brought catering in-house at Logan, is it? I noticed back in December that the catering trucks all said Delta on them rather than Gate Gourmet. I paid attention today while our flight was being catered (it was easy as it was during boarding and I was in row 1). The truc...Jump to post
JetBlue leadership has been talking about Europe for years with very little commitment. Many inside the company believe it will never happen, or will happen 5+ years from now. Remember that JetBlue does not currently have the A321LR on order, ETOPS certification or a agreement with Flight attendants...Jump to post

Article from "La Stampa" published today and translated with Google. The Alitalia negotiation is hanging by a thread. It continues to the bitter end, almost without interruption.

I can speak for my airline: using plastic during boarding allows the Inflight Crewmembers to deliver and clear service wear faster. Plastic cups are stackable and recyclable allowing Customers to have more time to finish their drinks. Otherwise, we would have to collect glasswear earlier. Also, you ...Jump to post

I always ask OAL non-revs to introduce themselves, as a courtesy (regardless of a jumpseat or cabinseat). I never ask, or expect, OAL crew to clean. Most will pick up trash and clean seatback pockets anyways. As for the pilot, I apologize for his rudeness, and no, JetBlue is not just another major a...Jump to post
