JetBlue looks at options for international flights
JetBlue doesn’t plan to be flying overseas anytime soon, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that the New York-based discounter won’t be able to offer you an international flight. "We are actually in the very early stages of figuring out a way for customers to [fly] with any international airline that wants to partner with us," spokeswoman Jenny Dervin tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The paper writes that Dervin’s “comments appeared to be the first remarks about JetBlue's partnering plans since late January, when the airline's top executive commented on the topic.” CEO David Neeleman said then that JetBlue “could have something by the end of 2006." Could JetBlue be trying to speed up that timetable given Delta’s recent announcement that it would create a large international hub at JFK by September? "That's definitely a date on the calendar that's interesting to us," Dervin says.
As for any possible deal, JetBlue’s Dervin said that any possible alliance would likely operate different than the typical code-share deals many U.S. airlines have with international partners, where they place their flight numbers and sell seats on each other's flights. Airline expert Darryl Jenkins seemed to agree that was the most likely scenario, saying: “The term in use is 'marketing alliance.' You do things to increase traffic but not increase cost." He adds that JetBlue is "the 800-pound gorilla" at JFK, so "anything they do beyond that on international flights is really gravy to them." What potential partners could be in the mix? Jenkins mentioned Virgin Atlantic, MAXjet and Air India.

I thought the blew was best served solo. Seems that they have too many airplanes and not enough places to fly them profitably.

When do the furloughs start? Still going to hire 600 this year? I am so blue at the thoughts of blew going bye bye.

Sounds more like another case of "thinking outside the box" that upsets the small minds that didn't reapply after 6 months.

Scattered like cock roaches I would say. Watching the air blow out of the blew sails is downright enjoyable. Perhaps they can all get jobs with Virgin Red. Or the fact that they shut the doors will not mean anything. Those pilots will be absorb back into the system. At least that is the argument made by the blow hards about my company. So pardon me if I enjoy a bit of squirming in the smurfville.

Didn't see too many of you guys calling the blew boys names when the rest of the industry was going through troubles. You had all the blew genius youth here telling everyone that blew would rule the world. Just nice to see some reality scattered on those airbags.

No, just 530 as originally projected. And don't worry, you can reapply in 6 months, not 12 like you originally thought. That will save you 265 numbers.

While you're waiting, don't you have a scope clause you could be loosening or something?

Ya know... I actually think I feel sorry for you. Its rare to find someone so blinded by hatred.

Tell me how adapting a plan and offering more service is a bad thing again?

So blind...

Hoookay, 32Lt...

Submit something substantive, something that contributes to the board, or you'll be asked to take a hike.

I can stand people taking pokes (sts) at JetBlue. Dave Seigel is quite adroit at satire, for example. While I detest his messages, at least he is somewhat funny in his approach.

You, however, are simply posting flamebait. That is against the rules and you'll be treated appropriately if you continue.

Well, let's look at which alliances JB might look at. SkyTeam (DL, AF, NW, CAL, KLM, CSA, KE, etc)? No. Star Alliance (UAL, LH, Sing, etc)? No. One World (AA, BA, QA, EM, etc)? No. So, who would hook up an alliance with JB? Anybody? Who flies into JFK that is NOT part of one of the previous alliances that would bring in enough passengers to feed JB flights as connections? (I guess BOS too can be included)

Bye Bye--General Lee

Man you are sooo smart. You should be in airlline management. I think the management team at JetBlue might have a better idea of available code share partners then you. By the way this is OLD news. It's been tossed around for at least 6 months.

Hey retard, you never gave me an example. Do you have to wait for management to tell you everything? How about you come up with something and I will debate you? Maybe you don't know enough about the possible hook ups. I do. Come on, just try to come up with one, or maybe two. How about Bangladesh Biman---twice weekly DC10 service from Brussels (changing to Manchester this Summer). I bet a lot of people in Dhaka, Bangladesh want to connect on JB from JFK to FLA. You never know.

Come on retard, come up with something.

I think you must be a tad of a imbecile to wish ill fortune on any group, shame on you you bitter little squirt!

elag777: actually, GL was simply calling him by his screen name. If he goes by "retard", then call him "retard". GL had a valid point in that retard never offered any substantive rebuttal of GL's position.

Wow I guess I have to explain my sense of humour to everyone, a feeble attempt I guess at a "Play on words," sorry if you didn't get it:) Everyone is a bit touchy today?

How, exactly, was anyone supposed to "get it"?
