Hmmm, did all the CEOs book tickets with their companies? Probably. And I hope something good comes out of this!

Highly doubt it. Most airlines have a few corporate jets. On a side note, Boeing has a CRJ for their corporate jet believe it or not. image

Not even funny. Safety never takes second string to Patriotism.

Also, Do you know just how low the chance of a 4 engine failure simultaneously is?

The only way would be fuel starvation.

Thats not the only way but the most likely way. EXTREMELY LOW chance of all 4 failing. And a little more but still a VERY LITTLE chance that a 4 engine bird strike.

I was going to add that but thought it too obvious. 🙃

This is nice, I’m glad that our president is taking action to better help our aviation services. (And jetBlue is represented there!)

That’s what people said about a dual engine loss, then cactus 1549 happened. It’s only a matter of time, not wishing bad things, but there is a first time for everything.
