A Bad Day for JetBlue

Not one of JetBlue’s best days:

First, they announce that they had a loss (a slight loss, to be honest, but a loss nonetheless) in a quarter when other airlines were reporting profits.  They also said they were scaling back growth plans, which sounds like a bad thing but is actually a good thing, as they weren’t able to grow as quickly as they wanted to profitably. 

Then (or perhaps before), the FAA reprimanded the carrier for performing its own little study (without the FAA’s permission) where they allowed pilots to fly 11 hours in a day — instead of the normal 8 — to study how alert they were when they flew the additional hours.  You probably didn’t want to know that.
