Default Jetblue significant hiring?

Now I hear RUMORS of triple-digit numbers of new f/o's 2nd half of 2010. 10-11 new airplanes starting the Summer. Any inside info?

Might have to do with them getting as many low-paid pilots in before they merge with AA and displace those pilots.

Nice! I like it. FWIW, the times I've asked jumpseating not one person has said no that they didn't think they were going to hire this year. Even had one guy told me that they bought back 6 airplanes they had sold. Bought them back cheaper or something.

I spoke to the guy at JB who sets those numbers a week ago....He said 125 this year. This is based on JB reacquiring 7 A320 we sold a now defunked German Airline...Blue Wings? We stand to make 2 Mil on each A320. So 4 190's and 7 A320's for 2010. We should hear something in a week or so...standby.

I was able to update my app just now, no problems.. I understand you cannot officially apply until the window opens again..
