JetBlue’s 2022 historical past of route pulldowns

JetBlue beforehand needed to cut back its summer time 2022 flight schedule by 10%. This was after CEO Robin Hayes admitted to taking Amtrak as an alternative of JetBlue from Boston to New York Metropolis. JetBlue needed to eradicate a complete of 36 routes for the summer time additionally in two batches, the primary batch largely round Fort Lauderdale and Newark. The second batch included flights out of John F. Kennedy Worldwide Airport (JFK) and extra Newark flights plus a Boston to Port-Au-Prince, Haiti one. The Los Angeles (LAX) to Richmond (RIC) flight was suspended, then turned on, and now’s suspended once more as per the above desk.


The reductions had been a results of, in accordance with FlightAware, JetBlue having 33% of its flights canceled and one other 35% delayed on Sunday, April 3, 2022. The issues continued when, on Saturday, April 9, JetBlue canceled 18% of its flights (191), and 48% of its flights had been delayed. On Sunday, April 10, 13% of flights or 146 had been canceled, with 37% or 407 flights delayed.
