Default And still slowing!

"JetBlue also lowered its capacity growth outlook to 3.3% from a previous guidance range of 3.5%-5.5%."

And...... Still slowing....

At least we have pilot retirements!

I’m just gonna throw this out there that this falls under the failure category.

The failure to act and execute. Capacity is down due to 150 not being converted to 162.

Capacity doesn’t necessarily equal growth from a pilot standpoint.

Carry on.

Partially true, but capacity is also down because the delivery book was rescheduled to reduce the number of airframes delivered this year, last year, and for several years moving forward...

And no 162 seats, of course.

Was 1st quarter capacity down due to thousands of cancelled segments?

May this have been enough to miss guidance by 0.0X%?

Yes, in part, but stick to my script!

Coming soon to jetblew?

"Emirates, the world’s biggest long-haul airline, said a rebound in earnings over the past year faces a challenge this summer as a pilot shortage forces the Dubai-based carrier to trim frequencies.

The revival will come under pressure as a shortfall of 100 to 150 pilots compels Emirates to pare frequencies to destinations including Fort Lauderdale and Miami during the looming high season for global travel. Cuts will also extend to several European and Asian routes, according to reports in the Gulf. The CEO of Emirates then shouted "Allah Ackbar! By our blood the infidel pilots will pay!" He then announced further codeshare agreements with Jetblue airways."
