JetBlue Advancing Focus City Strategy (New Route Announcements)

Normally I don't subscribe to anything without substance but I am flying out of BOS today and the JetBlue people working my gate are chatting about new routes to be announced today. I did a search and didn't find anything but please delete if this has already been addressed. I'm eavesdropping as I t...

Re: KLM to get proper premium economy.

Good to hear since I have had nothing but great service on KLM. Now if Aer Lingus would offer this (I frequent Ireland) I'd be tickled pink.

Re: "There needs to be more direct (international) flights at YQB", says Club Med's CEO

So if they want non-stop flights from NYC, BOS, and/or PHL to YQB, they're going to have to subsidize the flights. The airlines aren't going to take that risk to chase maybe 100-200 weekly passengers to Club Med over and above the limited existing demand. For Americans in the Northeast, I don't rea...

Good landing, but since it can't be used again for a while it falls just short of the great landing threshold. :D

Re: New Aer Lingus uniform

I like it. The jacket for the women looks less bulky IMO. I fly out of Logan often and I'd see them walking through the C Terminal and it reminded me of the power suits women wore back in the 80's

Re: Turbulence and injuries

Years ago I was flying into BOS on a Business Express S340B and we jostled pretty good. The flight was smooth and quiet and then BAM! After we got knocked around everyone was obviously concerned but the F/A was amazing and immediately took care of us (not many on board maybe 12-15). No one was injur...

Re: What (Not) to Say When Interviewing to Be a Flight Attendant

I worked for a major carrier for a few years as a ramper and met many a different person in the industry. One of my dearest friends to this day started around the same time as a inflight crewmember and moved up through the years and now works at HQ as a inflight recruiter. As I travelled with my new...

Feel free to move or delete if this isn't the appropriate forum. Seems Mayim Bialik had a bad day but I can't really agree with her here. When she said "The flight attendant slammed the door in her face" I doubt that highly as passengers aren't left at the end of a jetbridge. I think she m...

Re: JetBlue Network Thread 2019

Think of all the slots they have at LGA and JFK (though UA doesn't fly to JFK). Wonder how much (if any) they'd have to divest as a result of the massive EWR hub. That is certainly an issue for them. But the real problem is this. JetBlue is an LCC that has stimulated markets with low fares. United ...

Some observations prior to my departure of JetBlue at Terminal C: 1. The customer service agents have been wonderful, even though the events of the last few days are showing a toll. 2. The ramp agents would probably be better off with ice skates than work boots. The poor soul wing-walking my departu...

KBOS just published a ground delay program for today averaging 349 minute delays, with an average arrival rate of 16. Yikes!


My flight to MCO today on B6 is showing only 2 hours delayed so far. Hooray? :lol:
