First, cut graft, waste and corruption. You will find billions right there.
Secondly, politicians should be made personally liable for the policies they implement.
Thirdly, if all of the above is implemented, then think about the revenue and expense accounts.
On the flip side every time I see the NY Jets plane at BOS I think to myself "wow JetBlue, do you even understand Boston?!"

Any thoughts on Norwegian and LEVEL expanding from BOS? Seems like AMS, ATH, MUC, VIE could use low-cost non-stop premium carrier connection to BOS.
