Re: Jetblue “Save the Date” All Hands - April 10

One of my sources at B6 corporate said "don't be surprised if the first flight to Europe isn't until Q1 2021" with a wink and nod.

If true this will be a super early announcement.

PS he did confirm it will be announced April 10. No doubt about it.
