Saarinen's TWA Terminal Restoration

travel jet blue saarinen terminal It's about time for this restoration.

The T.W.A. terminal at JFK airport is getting some serious cash. $19 million to be exact. The Port Authority of NY and NJ plan to renovate the famous Eero Saarinen designed terminal. It will reopen as the Jet Blue Portal for the enormous new JetBlue Airways terminal that wraps around the T.W.A. building in a crescent shape.

Skytrax Airline Rankings 2007

travel jet blue tail Click through for the airlines that made the top of the Skytrax airline rankings.

Skytrax recently released its 2007 World Airline Rankings, which grade airlines from one to five stars. And of the five star picks, there’s not a U.S. airline in the bunch. It probably won’t surprise you to learn that, when you troll through the four-star rankings, the U.S. airlines that make the grade aren’t the large ones. Instead Jet Blue, Frontier and Midwest Airlines are the ones on the list. You can check out all the rankings on your own, but here are the lucky few who won five stars:

Marketing Research: Don't Believe The Hype

trave jet blue tv screens Jet Blue makes the top brands list.

Last week, MediaPost printed results from some Gen-Y research. There’s a sweet sweet list of the top 15 brands according to 100 of the most trend-forward individuals. Wow…100 people! And they’re trendsetters so I have to believe them! First of all, here are 15 of the top brands (note, this was before the whole Jet Blue fiasco, but I’m still down with Jet Blue. Sure I may have to wait a long long LONG time, but hey - DirecTV!):

The Vacation Is Set

travel jet blue building Taking Jet Blue to visit Disney World.

We opted to fly Jet Blue, if for no other reason (and their price compared to other was more than enough), but if you have ever traveled with kids on an airplane, you know how entertaining them for the flight can be a daunting task. Well, LatteGirl when she gets excited is no different, but since Jet Blue offers DirecTV at every seat, it will keep her busy and save me from having to answer “Are we there yet” or “How much longer?” about seventy bajillion times.

Help Virgin America Take Off

travel airline cabin design Will more competition improve airline cabin design?

Here’s a chance to encourage better design of airline experiences. Goodness knows the industry could use some more design-based competition; in addition to Jet Blue (isn’t this what air travel should look like by now?). Go to Virgin America’s website to petition the U.S. Department of Transportation to allow them entry into the market. After my less than optimal experience on Northwest this past week (their seats are narrower and the pitch is shorter than many airlines), I would welcome Virgin here.

Roll On

travel jet blue cabin Great deals at Jet Blue!

Mike and I are expecting quite a decent tax return because of the house and our student loan interest, so we may be going to the Fazed: Vegas gathering. He’s going to have to pay for it because I am dead broke, owing money to medical institutions all around this fine city. I spent the last of my Christmas money to get prescriptions that make it so that I can get up and move around daily. Anyway, we’re also likely going to Cleveland, which, while not being much of a vacation, is a city I’ve always loved. And of course, there’s my requisite Rhode Island trip. I can’t pass that up as plane tickets through Jet Blue are extraordinarily cheap right now.

Cracks At JetBlue

travel jet blue tails As long as the cracks are in JetBlue's customer service and not their planes.

What would make JetBlue even better than it already is? As an aside, I love flying Jet Blue, and racked up over 40 flights on the airline last year, but it is already showing cracks in its customer service. I hope they don’t let that continue to slide.

Last Stops To Buffalo

travel jet blue buffalo Even with Jet Blue, the commute to Buffalo didn't work out as planned.

This last year of commuting has been terrible, I will readily admit. I had stars in my eyes for a while. I would get everyone to use the telephone and email, and for some, IM and video Skype. It would be like I was completely there. After all, we’re academics—telecommuting is nothing new. Sure, I’d need to show up now and then for some things, but most of the heavy lifting could be done through the wire. And when I needed to go, the flight on Jet Blue is only 50 minutes.

Why I Like Jet Blue

travel jet blue saarinen terminal A Jet Blue fan here.

I've flown in first and business class a few times, usually because the airline screwed us over somehow so they had to put us up in a plane somewhere, but for the most part, its good old coach. Thats what I love about jet blue, there is no first class or business class. Honestly, it is extremely degrading to be boarded last, having to walk past all the rich people while they get served drinks just to be crammed into a small box and be treated like shit. Being as tall as I am they usually give me the exit row which sometimes is a lot more roomier than business class. But when I can't get it, I have a miserable time ahead. My knees are in my face, my butt falls asleep within minutes, and I come that much closer to suicide.

Bummed And Broke

travel jet blue a320 jfk Sometimes travel vouchers aren't worth much.

So, now I have a plane ticket credit on an airline that I will never use (Jet Blue). Sure, I could apply it to a trip to, say, The Bahamas (that sounds like fun!), but I used grant money to pay for the flights, and so I have to travel on a grant-related trip. Jet Blue was going to work fantastically for flying to Syracuse (I saved almost $300 over any other airline). But, the other places I have to travel to this year – Chicago and Lubbock – Jet Blue doesn’t even go close to. (They do fly to Richmond, but not until April…and even then a trip to Richmond wouldn’t be grant-related.)

Bermuda Blues

travel bermuda boat Well, there are boats.

Another one is the airlines. We’ve heard a lot about Jet Blue running regular trips to Bermuda for greatly reduced prices. What I’m interested in is what they refer to as the “Jet Blue” effect, which is a ripple effect in the prices of airfares. If we suddenly see a dramatic drop in Delta, American, Continental and British Airways, we should all scream bloody murder to the government. This would in fact prove what Bermudians have been complaining about for years, the fact that we are being gouged by the airlines (who also point to the government) needlessly. Living on an Island we have little alternative but to fly if we have or want to go anywhere off Island. We are quite literally at the mercy of the airlines and whatever price they choose to inflict upon us.

Thinking Outside The Cardboard Box

travel jet blue cabin Jet Blue is everything it's cracked up to be.

You gotta give it to these guys. I mean, presumably they could migrate, snow-bird style. What’s a one-way ticket to Nassau, Bahamas? Seventy-nine bucks on Jet Blue. Very doable. That’s less than the price of half a gram of crack (a “working half,” as they call it on the street). You gotta give something up temporarily, but look what you’re getting in return: it’s gonna be 79° and partly sunny in the Bahamas tomorrow. You know what it’s gonna be here in Boston? 36°, with rain/snow showers. All the crack in the world can’t make up for that cruddy forecast.

Red Eye

I’m taking a bird west later today for a wedding in Washington this weekend. I’ll be flying Jet Blue’s new non-stop service to Portland. Non-stop rocks. What does not rock is that the flight back will be a redeye. Never flown one before and I can’t sleep unless I’m horizontal. Should be interesting.

Flying, Not Driving

travel jet blue ground up With gas prices so high at the pump, I think a lot more people are flying.

i decided to fly to vermont now instead of drive for two reasons. first, there was a super cheap fair on jet blue to boston, half what i would normally pay. second, the program i was hoping to attend at karme choling in december was changed and no longer meets my meditation practice goal. there’s another program, however, in the pacific northwest. so now my plan is to head to vermont for a couple months, then come back for that program, before returning to the east coast.

Comin' On A Jet Plane

travel jet blue in-n-out burger Why think about the plane crashing when you can have one of those In-N-Out moments.

As the plane began it’s initial decent into the Los Angeles area, I was reminded of the Jet Blue flight that landed with the gear all messed up. I was sitting in my seat watching DirecTV thinking about what that must have been like for those passengers. And then, I got excited. I was landing in the land of In-N-Out. I started salivating over the thought of a double-double, fry and chocolate shake. It has been over 7 and half years since I’ve been in LA, more than 3 months since I’ve seen TLBO, and I was more excited about having a hamburger that I was about seeing my best friend.

At least seven other landing gear incidents have been identified with the Airbus A320 planes, of which JetBlue Flight 292 was one. JetBlue owns 81 of the A320s and would be one of the biggest customers affected if changes needed to be made to the landing gear on the fleet of A320s worldwide.

Well as most of you have probably seen, there was that whole Jet Blue incident today. Yes I’m a sucker for these things that’s why I’m writing about it. I found out about it when Karl IM’ed me and said “there’s an emergency landing in LAX!” I was like “who, what, where, when, how!??” Unfortunately, I didn’t get to see it happen live.. by the time I got home the plane already landed.

Almost Home

Right now my sister is attempting to fly back to California (she is stuck at Dulles airport on a delayed Independence Air flight). She has now sworn off that airline and suggests that you do the same too. Jet Blue is a much more convenient way to fly to DC. In fact, for any of you who want to come to visit in the fall, Jet Blue just announced the $99 one-way ticket between Dulles and Oakland/Long Beach.

Price-Quality Trade-Off

travel jet blue cabin Whenever a company reaches economies of scale, it can provide services for a lower price.

What’s going on here? It used to be that if customers couldn’t pay a premium, they’d have to accept low quality in return. In other words, the low price vendor was by definition the low quality vendor. That’s not true any more, witness the success of companies as diverse as Dell, Jet Blue, Progressive Insurance, and Men’s Wearhouse—all recognized for good products and good customer service as well as low prices. Note the fact that in both the AAMA and MSDW cases, representatives of both organizations conceded that lower price competitors were offering, in effect, comparable quality goods and services.

What Not to Watch While Flying

travel jet blue landing LOL:

One of the nice things about flying Jet Blue is DirectTV at every seat. But I have a suggestion for whoever is in charge of program selection: don’t show National Geographic’s Air Emergency. It’s just probably not a great idea to show programs—well-done ones at that—about fatal airplane incidents while flying.

Retirement Package Masquerading as Merger

travel jet blue in the sky A good post on the possible merger of U.S. Airways and America West:

Really now, how likely is this company to effectively compete with the likes of rabidly lean, entreprenurial, price-slashing, and profitable Jet Blue (which, by the way, has earned repeated accolades for customer service)? Southwest Air is already eating US Air’s lunch at Baltimore-Washington and is steadily chomping away at US Air’s traditional stranglehold in Philadelphia. Against these and other trim, agile, hungry, low-fare "roadrunners", how in the world is a US Air/America West "wile e. coyote" supposed to attract a bevy of new customers with profitable growth?

If Airports Were Food Providers

travel jet blue cowgirl creamery Clever to think of airports as food providers.

I am sitting at the Long Beach Airport, waiting to fly home via Jet Blue. If airports were food providers, the Long Beach Airport would be like Cowgirl Creamery -- a pure delight, always surprising, and very low maintainence (well ... Cowgirl Creamery cheese is low maintainence in that it goes with so many things). LAX, on the other hand, would be Sysco -- a huge conglomerate, necessary sometimes but not often, and much more ubiquitous than Cowgirl Creamery. I could live on Cowgirl Creamery cheese.

Will Everyone Turn Into Jet Blue?

travel jet blue counter Maybe the answer is that all the airlines adopt the Jet Blue business model?

Air travel has been undergoing a steady metamorphosis since 9/11, with carriers shrinking legroom, pulling free meals, and even eliminating complimentary pillows. And thanks to high oil prices and intense competition from upstarts like Jet Blue and Southwest, the process is only accelerating.

Today major air carriers begin reporting results and it’s not looking good. American is expected to post a $400 million loss. US Airways, which has filed for bankruptcy protection twice in the past two years, might go out of business entirely. United is expected to remain in Chapter 11 for some time to come. Delta is expected to be next in line to file for bankruptcy. Higher fuel prices add to the burden as the industry faces its fifth straight unprofitable year, with an estimated $5.5 billion in losses this year. Stepping into this apparent...

Racing Upwards

travel jet blue tail This blogger detects big differences in service depending on how well things are going at corporate.

I found the same contrast up in the air. American Airlines is racing to the bottom as fast as they can. The staff has given up. No smiles, no service, no effort. Saving money is the order of the day. Jet Blue, on the other hand, continues to strive to get to the top. From the free wi-fi at JFK to the terminal they want to build there, to the snacks (they even suggest mixes--created by taking say, animal crackers and pretzels and mixing them up--even though it means people are taking twice as much!)

Being a Critic: Jet Blue VS. United

travel jet blue crew It's hard to draw accurate comparisons based on a couple of flights, but this seems like a fair comparison to me:

Last time I flew, I was going to Pittsburgh for my annual trip with my dad. We flew United.On the way back, we had to make a stop in Denver. It was awful. Our plane was delayed 5 or 6 hours, literally. We went to customer service and the lady wouldn't even let us in the red carpet room. I thought that was the least they could do. We had to fight with them for a meal coupon, they eventually gave us 12 dollars. And knowing airports, that did not even pay for our whole meal. I was very dissatisfied and never want to fly with them again. My mom flew...

Making Your Culture Lead The Way

Jet Blue Checkin Girl If you like casual, you'll like Jet Blue. If you sell to Jet Blue, you better like casual.

I attended an SAP business conference in New York last week, where they held a panel discussion with a few of their customers. One of their newest customers is Jet Blue Airways.

As always seems to be the case with Jet Blue, their comments seem simple but are certainly not the norm.

SAP showed up for the first meeting with a large team all dressed in suits and ties. They were quickly told that the culture at Jet Blue was casual, and if they wanted to continue to be considered they needed to come with 2-3 people that dressed appropriately. SAP complied and won the account.

Clearly, if you want to work with Jet Blue you better get with THEIR culture.

So there.

More Fallout From TSA Use of Jet Blue Passenger Data

travel jet blue tail Department of Homeland Security is still coming clean about its use of Jet Blue passenger data.

When The DHS Chief Privacy Officer requested documents about the Jet Blue/Torch Concepts data leak for a report to the public (issued Feb 20, 2004), the TSA provided some documents but sat on others for six weeks, until Feb. 17th. "The CPO said that... gave the impression that TSA had withheld the documents." Further, the CPO said that she requested information about any other airline data transfer and "TSA responded that the JetBlue matter was unique and suggested that TSA did not have a role in any other airline data transfers." If TSA made this statement, it was both false, and consistent with the false information TSA was retailing elsewhere. However, the report does its best to whitewash the TSA: "We have been unable to find documentation that unequivocally corroborates this account and TSA staff..." of course, deny everything.

Report: TSA Misled Public on Data Use

travel jet blue tail TSA wasn't up front with Jet Blue passengers about the way it used passenger data.

•In September 2003, the agency's Freedom of Information Act staff received hundreds of requests from Jet Blue passengers asking if the TSA had their records. After a cursory search, the FOIA staff posted a notice on the TSA Web site that it had no JetBlue passenger data. Though the FOIA staff found JetBlue passenger records in TSA's possession in May, the notice stayed on the Web site for more than a year.

Kids In Control

jet blue cabin interior This article talks about kids getting a chance to check the flight deck on Jet Blue and elsewhere.

Jet Blue pilots, too, are very gracious and will, if time permits allow kids to have a good look at the cockpit. Further, they let them flip any switches they wanted to and never yelled, even took time to tell them what each area of the dashboard did.

Leaders React to Ferry Acquistion

travel jet blue tail We saw this interesting item at www.rnews.com:

"It costs them a $1,000 to fly from Toronto to New York City. They want to come down here and go out on Jet Blue and Air Tran and Independence. There's no doubt about that,” said Slaughter. “But we have lots of attractions here. They came when the ferry was running. They came over. Charlotte was booming and we want to see that happen again."

Really Relax Before You Fly

Jet Blue Cart Here's something you don't see every day.

From BizNetTravel Travel Log.

Our friend Rick sends us this story published in Incentive Mag last month, but who are we to complain since we left this weblog unattended for 10 days? Ah, the joys of business travel... But I disgress. The fact of the matter is:

"travelers leaving from, transferring through or arriving at the Jet Blue terminal at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport will soon be able to spend some of that down time getting a facial or massage."

The service, ...

I was shocked, simply shocked.
