I keep hearing that JetBlue will begin hiring in early 2009 for the EMB-190. All future new hire pilots will go directly into the EMB and no future hiring into the A-320. JetBlue is no longer granting Capt.'s LOA and is in need of some additional crews. No hard numbers yet, but I would suspect somewhere between 100-200 new pilots in 2009. I want to reiterate this is not offical yet, but I am hearing this almost daily and from people that should know.
