Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

I took a look at T-100 numbers for JFK-ORH in July and August and it's not good. I'm only see load factor of 40%, which is really bad considering these are peak summer month when load factors are normally in the high 80s. I'm sure B6 will keep flying it to get MassPort happy, but this route is prob...

Re: B6 Mistreatment of Parkinson's Pax

Apparently a Cornell professor, flying from LAX to SYR on B6, was treated quite shabbily by B6 personnel at LAX. What they apparently did not realize was the fact this individual suffers from Parkinson's. Someone(s) should have some explaining to do. https://cnycentral.com/news/local/parkinsons-awa...
