Re: JetBlue Network Thread - 2020

Scott Laurence, head of Route Planning, has already stated that they will likely return the Stansted slots. They apply for a lot of slots around the World that they don't intend to use for the purpose of being a part of the process and learning how to work with that individual regulating authority. ...

Re: JetBlue Network Thread - 2020

I'm probably crazy for thinking this... but AA pulling 50 seaters on flights to be replaced by B6 A320s... do you think the pilots, after giving up some scope on codes hares for this deal to happen... maybe also gave up scope on express flights? Could we possibly see B6 starting their own Jetblue E...

Re: JetBlue makes LAX West Coast focus city

Then why did former Virgin America Flight Attendants win their court case in the recent past over California and SFO labor laws? https://news.bloomberglaw.com/daily-labor-report/virgin-alaska-flight-attendants-win-77m-in-wage-class-suit I could be wrong, but VX Flight Attendants did not have a Unio...

Re: JetBlue makes LAX West Coast focus city

Ok so this ordinance and move to LAX will actually impact certain B6 flight attendants too. They start out at 21 a hour and if part time they can't get health insurance. On second thought, I don't think this will come up because I think you are forbidden from being part time until you have a year u...

Re: JetBlue makes LAX West Coast focus city

How does that work for part time employees that don't qualify for the company sponsored health plan? LAX Living Wage makes no distinction. The ordinance is meant to encourage employers to provide all their employees with health care. If employees are not given health care by their employer, the min...

Re: Brazil In Talks With JetBlue, Volaris, and Sky Airline To Operate Domestic Flights

Would JetBlue/Volaris launch Deep South American routes to station aircraft? P=zero on JetBlue operating that way. They would have a Brazilian subsidiary with a separate pilot/FA seniority list and local staff. They won't operate with U.S. staff, wages, and labor rules in Brazil. Pilot CBA specific...

To say nothing of the fact that it is 100% black and white violation of Pilot Scope in their CBA.

Re: Jetblue “Save the Date” All Hands - April 10

Maybe they’ll announce a heavy mint configuration on the A220 to LCY. I think it’s doable. You want to spend 6+ hours in an CRJ clone? You clearly have never been on one. The Cabin is almost the same width as an Airbus, giving each passenger MORE room. It's a great aircraft and however JetBlue conf...

Re: Jetblue “Save the Date” All Hands - April 10

Having a separate non union European work group would give JetBlue lower cost and more flexibility in the European markets. If by non-union you mean a workforce without a union, Thomas Cook staff work with Unite the union, trying to get rid of Unite would cause quite the s***storm, we all know how ...

Re: B6 Announces Major BOS Expansion

Yes of course. BOS-STT is just a touch shorter than BOS-DFW and that’s a route they most likely will be on. Its not a distance issue it's the runway and geography in STT that requires the stop. Thanks, Adamh8297. Wasn’t aware the runway at STT was an issue for the A220. For some reason I thought th...

It's also the Military designation for the 707, not the 717.
