It's an absolute MUST READ. JetBlue Advocates and Victims, Discuss amongst yourselves.

I have a slew of additional factual commentary...let me know if you would like more.....

Jet Blue's passenger "Bill of Might's" Comb through the Jet Blue web site, and laudatory "Press Releases" abound. The airline, from prior to inception through present day has been unrelenting in it's willingness for self-promotion and the corporate mantra of returning "humanity" to "air travel". In defining air travel in general as an "inhumane" experience, Jet Blue has seemingly exposed a willingness to place itself upon a very high pedestal. The effect of such a pre mediated assault upon perspective passengers, other airlines, and the press has been, for the most part, robustly lauded. It defies belief, that prior to Jet Blue suddenly and unexpectedly imploding upon itself during Valentine's Day 2007, that the airline hadn't fashioned a "press release" identifying itself as the "only airline to conduct nearly full operations at JFK, while all other airlines left passengers stranded!". Very simply, the expectations of Jet Blue were that this specific weather event would ultimately become "just another" proverbial feather in the airlines cap. The failed, and seemingly cascading, results of such an emboldened approach have been reported to the point of nauseam.

Jet Blue, upon cognitive recognition that its storm related failure, and subsequent efforts to "reboot" operations, were morphing into a twenty-four hour news cycle headline, abruptly assumed a "Management" led campaign of contrition. The culmination of this posture was a "humiliated" and "mortified" Chief Executive assuming full responsibility, apologizing, and proclaiming that a "Bill of Rights" for Jet Blue passengers would be quickly forthcoming. The carrier, appeared to be shrewdly "back atop it's game" for crafting the "message" it wished to be conveyed to the traveling public as a manifestation of the "inhumane" failures endured by it's passengers during the storm.Yet, both a passive and a vigilant reader/advocate will find that although, Jet Blue's "Bill of Rights" is unique in defining precise re-numeration directly correlated to passenger "exposure" time, it is a truly hollow promise. Had the Management of Jet Blue been wholly engaged and wanting to formulate a "Bill of Rights", they clearly would have realized that creating a "self imposed" standard that would be "self policed "is the height of insincerity and hypocrisy. The only true process by which a "Bill of Rights" would possess any "teeth" is by way of electing to have an independent entity oversee and determine it's rightful application. Jet Blue's "Bill of Rights" is a disingenuous farce, meant to un tarnish a blemished image due to a self inflicted malady.
