1 update to JetBlue's Wikipedia entry recording the gruesome details of the past 6 days.
Folks, this has gone beyond being a small, regional problem. Heck, it's not even national any longer. It's getting international attention, and JetBlue is the laughing stock of the entire travel industry, not even the airline industry alone.
It's gone beyond business sites reporting on the long term effects and worked its way into Leno and Letterman jokes on the TV in the living room (good one from Jay tonight about how even Amtrak spends more time airborne than JetBlue!).
This is not some small incident that will be easily forgotten. We're at 6 days and counting of mess, people being touched by this from California to Maine and beyond, and no signs of the media slowing down their coverage.
JetBlue will have trouble staying above the 10 mark when the market opens; it may even test the 52-week low.
This is going to be treated like a business that's in the midst of a major crisis by Wall Street, and rightfully so after having alienated a huge portion of its customer base and created enough bad PR to wipe out years worth of good will.
It won't even come close to $10.00 PPS.As long as JetBlue keeps their Prices as low as they are, people are willing to give them a second chance.It's all aboutspending the least amount f money to travel and thats what Jetblue does for people. This isn't "RYANAIR", it's a good low cost carrier that owned up to it's mistake. Watch the bigboard today and learn.It will stay where it's at.

Some of the comments and excuses by Jetscum management is beyond belief.
I will be very pleased if the losses go beyond $50- $75 million over this. But my guess now watching 6 days after the event and they are still running around without a clue could push the losses even higher.
Looks like no more pay raises for the 190 Smurfs. They are going to have to keep subsidizing this incompetence.
