JetBlue to trim NYC Summer '23 flights due to FAA staffing

It must be play time in the jetblue executive offices. I wonder if my summer flights out of JFK are going to get canceled. What a worthless airline.

This is totally expected. I know I'm usually the last person to come to JetBlue's defense, but the article notes that Delta and United have already submitted their requests. The only complaint I have is that JetBlue hasn't done it yet and the clock is ticking.

The issue I have is jetblue should look in the mirror before going out and bashing the FAA. Jetblue went from a great airline to a joke. Their IT is incompetent. They are playing games with travel bank money. Tons of issues they need to fix inside jetblue before they bash others. Still waiting for the seat maps to work too.

I don't disagree. I was disgusted when they started putting stickers on the planes in support of FAA privatization several years ago. Talk about biting the hand that feeds you.

Crank had predicted that Jetblue would not in https://crankyflier.com/2023/03/28/w...a-this-summer/

In particular:
American and JetBlue seem like unlikely participants in this plan. After all, their agreement with the Department of Transportation (DOT) to allow their Northeast Alliance (NEA) partnership says that in 2023 they must operate 110 percent of the seats at JFK and LaGuardia that they operated in 2018/2019. I don’t know if DOT has offered to waive that requirement, but it would certainly require an extra step, and one that I’m sure DOJ would hate to see. Even if so, it seems unlikely that American and JetBlue would pull back.

If they were forced to cut back, it might improve their odds of operating the rest of their schedule on-time this summer
