Personally I donít want to eat any of it.


And nobody wouldíve been happy with full meals we negotiated either because they come from the same processing facility.

Which is kinda the point. Iím glad we didnít waste any capital on crew meals.

If the flight is long we get a sandwich. Great. Otherwise I would much rather pick something to eat on my own.

Some guys would complain about winning $1million because it comes in $5 bills.

And some dudes are happy to lose $1million+ over a career just to be lucky enough to wear a BlueJet shirt...

Should have been guaranteed a Mint meal on a 5-6+ hour flight in my opinion.

Simple explanation of mx and wx delays and nutrition requirements. Non event.
Unfortunately a lot of Capts here donít think that way, and I blame JB mgmt on some of it, but JB Capts are some of the weakest guys I have flown with in my career so far (3 airlines). They are more concerned about getting out 15 mins early and saving gas. They get talked down to by gate agents, ramp agents, and take sh!t from just about anybody and rush all the time! Not all CAs here like that, but most guys I fly with a are very, very weak.... and thats how we ended up with this crap CBA!

Definitely should have been a guaranteed mint meal when itís a mint plane at a minimum.

Not a lot to disagree with there. Hopefully next time around the MEC leadership and the NC will have a better understanding of who Jetblue truly is. I mean, its not like there were examples or anything over the past few years.
