Re: First Jetblue 321NEO LR spotted

It’s not the LR. It’s a regular MINT aircraft but the first one a NEO. They just said so on our intranet. It will join the other MINT routes this fall.

Re: Hawaii reopening delayed until Sep. 1

How is Hawaiian Airlines doing? Does anyone know, I haven't heard much on them lately. Them being a leisure airline, I imagine this is really hitting them hard. Are they going to be able to survive all this intact, or are they a prime target of being acquired, or something along those lines.
