Re: WOW Air Relaunch & Michele Ballarin - Scam?

Her life story would make for an interesting read. "How I went from Somalian arms dealer to Virginian real estate owner to Icelandic-American fish airline". When is it going to be out on Amazon?

Re: jetBlue's Newark "Focus City/Hub"

So for JetBlue and other airlines, is one entire metro area considered a crew base, or are crew assigned to one specific airport? Like let's say that JetBlue has one big base of the NYC metro area serving LGA, EWR, JFK or if like Air France had one big Paris crew base for both Orly and CDG?
