They can’t place say 4 weeks of vacation available for bid in December and 20 weeks in September.

There is a difference between that and negotiated, violated, litigated, and winning

Good luck guys.
Are those growth planes or replacements? 500 -700 new growth planes?

Jetblue is lucky to get around 12 a year. And those aren’t all growth.

There’s something like 430 MAX 120 A321 NEO/XLR and 100 787s (with an option for 100 more) and a consistently deferred order of 45 A350s.

Allegedly a mix of up gauge and RJ replacement (300) as well as replacement aircraft. Lie flat MAX 10 (50?} and 321 XLR (50) to replace 757s, 787s to replace 767s and early 777 (72). Of the 787 order, 53 will be up gauging to jets on the highest pay scale

Napkin math puts just under 200 narrow body for and 28 widebody for pure growth, beyond bringing RJ flying in house, not including 787 options or A350.

77% denied for RSV coverage is unacceptable. That is all.
