JetBlue Announces 9.3% Operating Margin; First Profit in the First Quarter Since 2005

NEW YORK, April 23, 2009 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ --

JetBlue Airways Corporation (Nasdaq: JBLU) today reported its results for the first quarter 2009: -- Operating income for the quarter was $73 million, resulting in a 9.3% operating margin, compared to operating income of $17 million and a 2.2% operating margin in the first quarter of 2008.

When do they start paying fo their airplanes?

You broke the code ...

All of our aircraft have been given to us free of charge.

All maintenance costs are covered by Airbus and EMB for the next 20 years.

Fuel is free as long as we give the EXXON CEO Blue Chips when he rides with us.

As soon as these deals expire, naturally we will have to shut down operations.

I know your post was toung in cheek, but you'd be amazed how many people actually believe this stuff.

We dont pay for our airplanes. We elect Joel Peterson to the BOD and then he cherry picks the right deals for his aircraft leasing firm.. He acts as both buyer and seller in transactions. Where do I sign up for this deal?

Now and into the future we will supply azul with airframes for growth.

So I guess you didn't know the pay rates when you took the job?

Huh...

Let me guess you have the same idea as Mr. Craine, all 190 pilots at JB Express should have to reinterview to fly the Bus? How about same seat payscale and then all is fair. Don't tell me that 49 seats in your big airplane is worthy. SW has it right all equip same rate (737-500 110 pax/737-700 140 pax), we should as well.

OK BOB. I was told as were others they would revisit our pay and benefits to remain competitive. This isn't my first rodeo so I knew they were lying. I was hoping they weren't but my gut told me different.

8viate grow a pair and stand up for yourself. Our management is as crooked as any legacy carrier. I can't wait to vote for ALPA!

Dave Barger knew what the job paid when he came... However, he received a 300% pay increase this year. Hmmmm.....

You sound like an idiot with that comment. I guess we should all live off our 12-18 grand a year and live in our $36,000 houses while driving our $2,000 mustang... oh ya, inflation?

Is part of being a "chameleon" FO at B6 also having to listen to this and keep your mouth shut?

Nope, rather have you speak your mind, too many here doesn't even realize what they don't have and they are to dumb to research it. Many here haven't even read the PCRB report from end to end.

Speak up, but expect the "deer in the headlight" look!
