Re: UA Plans to Return to JFK in 2021

JetBlue staff would dispute this claim. I got this from someone at EWR. Someone that would know. As of now, the central banjo in A is unused. I imagine that is part of “negotiations “ with the PA. B6 isnt an insurgent outside carrier. They are arguably the most important part of development at JFK....
