Re: Jetblue A320 refurbish thread

I wonder what the 4 thomas cook leased aircraft have been doing all this time. I suppose just sitting around. Very bad timing, covid hit when the ink was still wet. They would of been a nightmare to fly in anyways and really cheapened the brand. They were never formally acquired by JetBlue thus the...

They are ridiculously overstaffed right now, and they are not furloughing anyone. October is going to be a very slow month and this holiday season the slowest probably in history.

Re: Boeing CEO: A major US airline likely will go out of business this year,

I think B6 is the most vulnerable of the major carriers. Their biggest hub in JFK is an area that people don't want to travel to right now because of it being a covid hotbed and they have a nice east coast operation but are by no means the 800 pound gorilla that WN is on the west coast so they don'...
