Personal Travelling

For the love of God, YES, I still travel on JetBlue. I'm not turning down free tickets AND as Neeleman said in the investor relations call that I posted before, since most people won't be cashing in on their vouchers, they shouldn't have to worry about the bottom line (I'm heavily paraphrasing, listen to it if you want to hear exactly what he says.)

So in some ass backwards way, NOT using their vouchers would help them and hurt me, all for what? Principle? I'm not holier than thou and I'm cheap, which is why I started traveling them in the first place, so there's where I am with the whole not traveling JetBlue hypocrisy stance.

BUT, as I said once before, it's all about price shopping for me now....My monthly August trip is with Continental, which is the favorite of a reporter who interviewed me, who shall remain nameless for the sake of him remaining unbiased in his reporting.

I AM MORE THAN SUPER DUPER THRILLED TO ANNOUNCE THAT I AM FLYING ON VIRGIN AMERICA IN SEPTEMBER! I mentioned months ago that they were caught up the FAA Red tape and despite being ready for months, were still grounded for issues that have to do with nationality. Too much to go into here, but THEY ARE NOW AIRBORNE!

In October, I am back to flying on JetBlue because I am 8 measly points away from my True Blue Reward. BUT AFTER THE AWARD, NO MORE, unless they are remarkably cheaper than the rest. (I would like to say in JetBlue's defense, they have been very accommodating to my demands as of late. For that, thanks ya'll.)

I am very excited to tell you all about my Virgin America experience once I fly with them Thus far, I had a really wonderful phone experience with a Patrick in Burlingame. After being hung up on numerous time by the at-home moms in middle America who work for no benefits for JetBlue, I am happy just to have someone on the phone who sounds like they love where they work.

I cannot believe how hypocritical you are. I could care less about JetBlue but you devote an entire website to bashing them yet you still fly them. After numerous reports stating how unsafe they are etc etc. I could care less about getting a free flight/meal etc for a company that wronged me..out of pure principle I would not contintue the patronage. You my friend have lost all credibility.

Hi Me, I don't write those posts on unsafe conditions, they are sent to me. Duh. Jeez, you swear I would know anything about the anything that has to do with aeronautics.

Where did I say you wrote the reports? Obviously they aren't written by you DUH. However you do post them on YOUR blog.

Well this is obviously a webpage owned, operated, or funded by another airline in the low-cost flight industry. As an employee of American, I think JetBlue is a quality company. A lot more horrible things happen than getting trapped in an airplane for a day--remember Kentucky? Plus, I would be A LOT more concerned about the safety of the numerous other competitors in the low cost airline industry than JetBlue, e.g. southwest, or any of the others that buy their planes used and have low maintenance standards. This blog is a joke.
