Re: JetBlue Announces JFK-GEO

The reason JFK-GEO on AA is starting is because MIA-GEO has performed so well. Quickly going from 4x a week to daily to soon up-gauging to a 738. Before we all take a stab at predicting the future let’s wait and see how this plays out. It was no secret B6 was going to launch JFK-GEO, AA still went ...

Re: JetBlue Announces JFK-GEO

You would be surprised how the diaspora tends to gravitate to whats new and fresh coupled with lower introductory fares, its only a matter of time until AA drops out. AA does pretty well with Latin American point of sale. That remark may come to be seen as hubris. We aren't talking about the Latin ...

Re: JetBlue Announces JFK-GEO

BW on this route should not be underestimated. Definitely the best in-flight product. The Guyanese like their hot meals and don't wish to pay for food! That's what they said about B6 entering the JFK-KIN market. Look at where it is now. B6 (arguably) will have the best product of the 3 with free un...

Ok. Enough with the Bull on this site. Put up time. How many VX pilots were furloughed by AS? When were they furloughed? I want numbers and dates. I really believe you are concentrating on the wrong things here. I could throw out any numbers and dates, doesn't change the fact that mergers are not g...

Re: JetBlue does it need to be saved from its management?

I posted this on another B6 thread but find it appropriate here as well. Wow whiners out in full effect. We get it. Management at B6 has issues starting from the top. AA has the same issues with Doug Parker. It happens. But your attitudes and moral have a huge effect on your operations wether you s...

Re: JetBlue Network Thread 2019

Your VX analogy is telling to your ignorance of basic economic principles. VX failed to earn money for much of its existence. It was on the verge of collapse several times. The pilots and flight attendants of VX may complain about changes...But they have been integrated into a much stronger, more s...

A UA takeover does not equal demise. Quite the opposite. For employees, it means more money and job security. For shareholders, a windfall. You're either an airline fanatic who's never worked or actually know anything about the industry, or an incredibly disconnected wanna be arm chair CEO. The las...

Re: Airbus A321XLR to have over 100t MTOW, range of 4700 nm

Long and thin is still long and thin. That's the role for this airplane. And as the A321 stretches its legs, its economics must take the hit. Airbus may able to pick off some orders here and there, but the market has already told us that demand is limited for this type of airplane. How so? With a l...

Can you imagine the performance of a hypothetical A322 with an improved Wing? I was just asking myself the same question. Imagine, what would a true "next gen" narrow body 757/A321 size airliner be capable of. Larger wing and composite fuselage, so higher flight levels from the start will...

Re: United seeks to return to JFK

If United wants to get back in then they should divest slots elsewhere. They tried to stick it to B6 with the DL EWR/LGA swap. Other airlines shouldn't have to give up slots because of there short sighted decision.

Re: JetBlue Orders 60 Airbus A220-300

The idea would be the A220 would replace the E190s plus some of the older A320s. Wouldn’t be surprised if Jetblue ends up being just an A321CEO/NEO/LR/XLR and A220-300/100 fleet and slowly retire the A320s. The A220 has the advantage of flying short routes then fly a transcons with a red eye coming...

Re: JetBlue Network Thread 2018

BOS-DFW is stuck at 2 flights a day. B6 has not been able to make any inroads into American’s operation there, which is probably why they haven’t tried JFK-DFW or FLL-DFW. I don’t see them adding much, if anything, to DFW anytime soon.[/quote] On the contrary, both flights have high load factors the...
