With HAL’s addition of a flight to LGB, I’m thinking there will be a merger sometime soon.

You heard it here first.

With out the help of Alaska's west coast routes I don't see JetBlue and Hawaiian airlines serving any great feed . Jetblue doesn't fly to enough cities on the West coast to really connect enough passengers. Thy already fly to JFK so we connect them from there . And they fly to LAX.

Now some investor put up a map of Jetblue , Hawaiian and Alaska's routes combined . That would be a real threat and route map compared to others. Jetblue and Hawaiian solo , Meh, doesn't work well , unless it's part of a long term 3 way merger to go down in the future.

But we can use their gates at other airports we don't currently serve. It would give us the gates we desperately need out west. I woulda thought it might happen while their CEO was British but I think he retired.

I guess that's a small point . But they dot really own that many gates actually, their wide body gate doesn't really give Jetblue two gates . Plus they still need to park the wide bodies when they come in. I think it's possible but not without more west coast connections . This coming from a regular line guy . Clearly don't know anything

Hmmm...Blue Hawaii + an airline with a picture of Elvis on the tail?
You might have a great combo there....call ‘em The Flying Elvii. :D

Understand there will be a revised hair requirement for the Captains. Those unable to adhere to it will be issued wigs.

There are no maps on the walls in airline boardrooms. Just PowerPoint slides with numbers.

The days of Juan Trippe’s giant globe are over—nobody cares about the route structure. Just yields. Not saying a merger couldn’t happen; but.

It’s doesn’t make any sense at all. Throw in Alaska and it makes sense but highly improbable. 3 ways just don’t happen despite what your college roommate said.

Can we pick our own? I’ll go with one of those English barrister ones. Ladies love the curly whites.

What happens March 2? Base transfer?

It better be a base transfer.......not a new airline. No.......we’re all in this together.........Where do you think you're going? Nobody's leaving. Nobody's walking out on this fun, old-fashioned family Airline. No, no. We're all in this together. This is a full-blown, four-alarm holiday emergency here. We're gonna press on, and we're gonna have the hap, hap, happiest IROP since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny Fukking Kaye. And when Robin squeezes his fat white ass down that aisle tonight, he's gonna find the jolliest bunch of azzholes this side of the nuthouse.
