Yeah, I see B6 off to GRR soon honestly.

I’m just super happy for MKE because of all the new routes and airlines they’ve received, JetBlue almost finishes the puzzle for them.

I see that, I’m also excited to see Midwest Express’ flight from GRR-MKE (eventually), also GRR is almost operating at max capacity, a terminal expansion is ongoing, but for the meantime, almost every gate, if not every gate, is full after 1AM

I literally have a post for this in the review queue. I submitted it like an hour ago, how did this get approved first… Just a little salty 😂

Very good news! Although when I messaged you you didn’t seem too enthusiastic about MKE just a joke 😉. I know @Balloonchaser’s happy about a direct flight to YVR

The battle of who’s topic goes first. Next on CBS.


It’s going to be really fun seeing this come alive. I’ve always wanted to go to Vancouver, so a stop in New York on my favorite airline now seems reasonable! Since Air Transat was stupid enough to cancel Fort Lauderdale to Vancouver. 😤

So, quick recap:

JetBlue and American went on a date, this happened unit Jetblue purposed to American, American said yes, had a marriage told the world, and now their children are now adventuring to new places like Delhi, and YVVR which means that they can take care of their grandpa: David Neelman😎

Cool recap, right?

Does anyone else see JetBlue joining oneworld (or announcing it) this year?

I’m excited for American finally returning to New Delhi. Last year AA said they would expand JFK with flights to India, South America, Europe, and Africa. One more region and they’ll keep that promise.

I did too, 11:18 EST 👀

No, the one world livery would look not so good, but then again it might work

They won’t. JetBlue has came out and said (multiple times) that they will not be joining an alliance

I mean, I would think they would after the partnership with AA
