I would like to see those bluebrids flying in this fall. What do you think are the chances of it actually happening? Saw a large commercial jet flying into ORH this weekend, I miss seeing them fly by my house.

That was a Miami Air charter. I've changed my stance on JetBlue desinations from ORH, JFK would be added after significant success. I think starter destinations would be Orlando (duh!), Sarasota (replace Punta Gorda), Ft. Lauderdale (or Palm Beach). 1-2 flights a day to each would be wonderful.

Today marks the day Direct Air said they'd return to flying... No planes at the airport.

JetBlue please come!!
