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. ...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
It's all moving to LAX. JetBlue gives LGB the boot.

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...Jump to post
Is there an actual link to this? I can't find it anywhere on the DOT site or from any news sourceJump to post

JetBlue has grown faster than any non-ULCC in recent years. How much faster do they need to go? They're also one of the only airlines, post-deregulation, to never merge or declare bankruptcy...clearly they have no idea what they're doing... What's wrong with an airline merging? We'll talk mergers t...Jump to post
JetBlue employees are unhappy because their fleet is aging? Really?

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...Jump to post
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 ...Jump to post
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...Jump to post
