Re: News on JetBlue cabin restyling

Is it fair to assume that the "phase I" improvements will be for the N5/6xxJx planes and the "phase II' for the newer N7/8xxJx equipment ?

Re: Another United gaffe - forces doctor off plane

The flight was by Republic Airlines, not United mainline but then nobody would take the click bait if the headlines said Republic now would they? That's an important point that it actually wasn't United, but with a video showing that, I'm pretty sure it would've gone viral regardless of the carrier.
