Re: Rumor: AS trying to get B6

You like to reference pilots. Who or which pilots are you speaking with. I’m a pilot. At b6. I don’t hear or see what you see. And since you’ve been on this sight, nothing you’ve predicted has been anywhere near accurate. Just wondering where your intel is coming from? How's the Coke to Pepsi trans...

I could see the pilot union acting in cohorts with Neeleman/Moxy to enable a coup d'etat. Judging from their allegiance to him and absolutely distaste with current management, I could totally see it.



No...

It will Be interesting to hear what changes they have planned for LGB and SJU. This additional flying out east has to come from somewhere else in the system since JetBlue not getting that many aircraft this year.

Airlines stretching their funds to their limits can’t be good for the company long term either. B6 needs to be cautious with their expansion to Europe.

Even the regular A321NEO should EASILY reach Western Europe. So...no more excuses NOT to fly to Europe, B6!

Re: Man removed from WestJet flight after falling asleep prior to takeoff.

I guess it’s up to the court to decide then if the passenger chooses to take that route.

Its never wrong to err on the side of safety.
Kalvado we can agree to disagree. It’s unfortunate this guy was inconvenienced, maybe next time wait till you’re airborn before popping your pills.
