I always like the statement. Have your cake and eat it too... What’s the point of getting the cake if you can’t eat it? I mean I’m not gonna get cake then let someone else eat it. Right?

So I'm confused if AA and B6 can't coadunate schedules with each other how are all these connection carriers able to achieve that. It's been done for eons NW/CO and NW/DL did it as well. Capacity Purchase Agreements are not the same thing as a Codeshare. You aren’t buying a ticket on SkyWest with t...Jump to post
The last thing I would do is doubt David Nealman. His track record for success in harsh times of this industry is pretty impeccable. While I'm not a fan of his labor relations, his business savvy is second to none. Breeze will start up and likely be a success in one form or another. How long it last...Jump to post
Looking at the OAG this week, I am surprised by how much Delta is keeping Jfk wide open. Routes like CLE and RDU with 0 flights for August. Big drawdowns across the board. UA and DL are leaving their respective hubs wide open for B6 to gain some marketshare I'm seeing LGA flights get loaded without...Jump to post
Has anyone considered that B6 is doing this to prod consolidation? Nothing works better to push a much larger competitor to make you disappear than poking them with a stick. Or it's a middle finger to UA and does nothing to create a synergy with UA as it puts up another wall within the DOT for comp...Jump to post

What payments are B6 suppose to be making for the MCO South Terminal? B6 is not building it. They will be a tenant just like any other airline that uses the terminal. The only payments being made concerning the new MCO South Terminal are being made by GOAA, FAA and FDOT. There’s no mention of any p...Jump to post
No base? LGA is a crewbase for B6 No it's not. It's a co-domicile. JFK is the base. JFK has the admins, chief pilots, dedicated crew/quiet rooms, computers for checkin, employee parking. LGA has none of that. A few trips start and end out of LaGuardia and because of its proximity, is considered as ...Jump to post
WN has a max scheduled duty day of 10.5 hours, B6 uses the FAR max of 14 hours. So I think its funny when people imply WN work harder and longer days. Fake News. Where are you getting 10.5 hours? And double the pay? Have you compared pay rates? The following is straight from the current SWAPA pilot...Jump to post
Again, not a huge fan of these 5+ year planning since a lot of things could change in that time. WN could buy out NK in a couple of years to eliminate competition. And who knows what kind of opportunity that would bring. HA could go in the red and get merged into BA. B6 could partner up with UA. We...Jump to post

This is definitely an interesting turn of events... Only thing for sure now is that things will change.
There it is. A disgruntled employee and others hijacking threads when/wherever to complain about their job, the company, and their dear profit sharing. Right, we should all come to work for culture coupons and fun tickets because airlines are fun fun fun. JFKLGANYC above has a pretty good grasp on ...Jump to post
You don't consider the 5 percent retirement plus program as profit sharing? No. That's a company scam. 401K contributions are just that. Profit sharing is and should be separate. But there are lots of blue juicers, just happy to be here lemmings who will do and say whatever they can to prop up JB's...Jump to post
I'm disappointed with this AS/AA news as this makes any possibility of merging with Alaska nearly impossible. On the other hand, as this makes B6 even less relevant on the West Coast... I wonder if this backs B6 further into a corner and makes the possibility of being acquired by WN or UA even more...Jump to post
When did B6 announce it was leasing in ex-MT A321s? If they did, I expect them to be redone to the B6 standard as I could see B6 eventually buying those frames. Remember, some of the older A320s will need to be retired within the next 3-5 years as they will be around 90,000 to 100,000 hours. It was...Jump to post
Could be on par with the additional FLL gate rumors.
There hasn’t been anything released as to when the 190s will actually leave property. At least to my knowledge. We did fly the 190s out west if you look back to 2011-2012. The operation failed because recovery would take as much as 24hrs for mx and crew issues. To your point we needed a mid country...Jump to post

My predictions for this year (announcements, not necessarily start in 2020). From JFK - I'm assuming here JFK slot constraints stay in place and they are unable to get more good slots from anyone.

Anyone else heard that Jetblue has recently bought at least 4 (ex Thomas Cook) A321s ? Where did you hear that? Our VP of flt ops did say they would try to find other used planes but that was it.
