If you've set up your login with mycrewhotel, you can use that site to view API-negotiated rates at all the area hotels. It's been awhile but I used to be able to get the Hampton for 98 plus tax. Priceline and Hotwire are dicey in that area IME since they call certain hotels 3-star that I wouldn't call 1-star...

Try the Hilton JFK, you can get it for around $125 depending on the night

What is the least of amount of time people have got picked up with? I am currently at 3,500ish but working in an airline training department and not building time that quickly.

Civilian TT mins seems to be at 4,500-5,000+ as stated in another jetBlue thread just recently.

Possible but would need well connected recommendation.

Pretty low:

YTD Pilot Attrition Data
2015 Planned Attrition = 130
2015 Planned Attrition To Date = 64
2015 Known Attrition To Date = 50

Is that expected attrition from retirements or total?

If the company expects 130 pilots to leave B6 for greener pastures and only 50 leave they they will surmise that things aren't so bad here. For contract negotiations we can't point to a "mass exodus" to prove we need much better terms.

It's actually high. Acceptable attrition is about 3%; 130 is 4.5%. It may not sound like a lot but it costs a lot of money to train pilots to leave.

The actual attrition is lower than planned, and if you extrapolate for the year, is at around 3%.
