Despite all JBís talk about technology and JBTV, Ed Bastian is the one invited to speak CES - bit.ly/2TutDcZ

Embarrassing. Of course, Delta actually executes instead of waving it in everoneís faces.

If you havenít noticed, Blewjet isnít anything special anymore, almost everyone has TVs, Wifi (free on Delta soon too), extra space seats, etc. All we have left is the whole can of soda. I feel Delta has way better in-flight entertainment, snacks, etc.

But! They donít have culture or potato farms!

Delta most certainly does have culture and while they don't force it down employees throats, they absolutely make maintaining and protecting their culture a top priority. They also recruit for it.

You should see their first day of indoc. Its about a "blue juicy" as ours.

Sorry, but with their pay, benefits and profit sharing program DL corporate has EARNED the culture they have. Not perfect, but not a scam CULT like JB.

Dude. You do realize itís not 2011/12 anymore at DL and those same guys from your JFK pad are now CAís or very senior FOís in just about any seat they choose out of JFK or almost every other DL base right? Nobody hired at jetblue can expect the kind of meteoric rise those guys had and will continue to have... I urge you to reach out to them and see if theyíre still unhappy with their positions. Iíve seen you bring this up a couple times and it makes me cringe. Sorry for the thread drift...

No kidding! If only Hyper had told them he was a JB recruiter! I'm sure Hyper would have been innundated with resumes from Delta pilots...

You are quite the stalker...... For someone that hides behind their identity you sure like to "out" others.

Exactly BN. Everyone complains but none of the would leave DAL,UAL,FedEx,UPS,SWA to come to Jetblue. Pilots was a career with good pay and benefits. Pilots are putting "culture" at the top of their list.

I just don't understand why you wouldn't help those poor Delta pilots get a job Bluejet?

And their airplanes are CLEAN and the IFEs actually work.


Oh yes, and they don't try to get free labor out of their pilots. Great job ALPA!

I am just wondering if your as tough and bullying in real person as you are on here? Your personal attacks get personal and old. Yet you get to hide?:confused:

I don't trust you and your irrational love for BlueJet. And I think it was a total Alpha-hole move to not help those poor Delta pilots get a better job at BlueJet.

So if you think that me pointing out how selfish you were for not helping those Delta pilots better their position by helping them get a better job at BlueJet is bullying, then ok.
