Deja vu?.......In April 1981, People Express Airlines was launched - and a business phenomenon took off. By the beginning of 1986, People Express had grown to be the fifth largest airline in the United States, and had revenues of about $1 billion per year. Its innovative management style and structure were praised as the wave of the future, and companies around the world rushed to imitate them. Yet by September of 1986, People Express was nearly bankrupt, and was acquired at the last minute by Texas Air.


Hopefully JB will avoid the errors made by others. Remember the quote about those unfamiliar with history being condemed to repeat it.
Oh no...here we go again! :D

Heretic! Thou shalt never compare jB to PE, nor Neeleman to Burr, lest thou be smitten by the true believers...

...although if jetBlue ever swallows up Frontier 2.0 I'd start to worry!
(For you kids out there, PeoplExpress bought out the 'real' (original) Frontier in 1985, right about when things started to go into the proverbial toilet for them.)

I've never seen any difference in loads between day flights and red-eyes, either direction.

Of course the reason for red-eyes to the West Coast is for aircraft utilization...why have the aircraft sitting on the ground at JFK when it can be making money overnight?

I see a whole lot of people on the east-bound red-eyes who love 'em because they can still have a full day on the West Coast and not lose a day flying east...and many of them will hit the ground running when we land and head right to work...UGH! :blink:

Planes333,

It might be the most demand exists for the 9pm departuresfrom JFK, My criticism is the Redeye back to JFK, BOS or IAD where the clock shows no mercy. Are those flights as popular? I can see a redeeye to Europe since there really is no other alternative but from California to the east I will take a 3pm arriving at midnight. AA has flights at that time to JFk from LAX & SFO, isn't that the bird JB is trying to wrestle.

Dissension can be a good thing. I welcome it. Who knows what the future holds. By now anyone remotely familiar with this industry realizes we are along for the ride.
