    jet blue Airlines Competition Why Airlines Need Competition .
    by: James Post
    The airline holds a virtual monopoly for intra-Caribbean flights, and it shows. Once they canceled a flight because of "technical reasons". Most people realised that the real reason was economy as the flight was poorly booked. No apology, let alone compensation. Another time I almost missed a flight because it left half an hour early. Since I only had hand luggage it was so convenient to kick me out.

    Jetlag has been a problem for air travelers ever since air flight was invented. Our bodies are creatures of habit and once we have adjusted to a specific time zone, they don't like things to change. When we do disrupt our circadian rhythms or biological clock to the layperson, we experience jetlag. Depending on how far we have traveled, in which direction and what shape our body is in ....

    by: Luis JJ Teixeira
    You need to understand that there is no such thing as discounted airfare and/or getting the cheapest airfare available. This is simply because there is no base price to work off. For example, a flight from New York to London should cost $600, but airline companies are offering it at $400. People really need to understand the reason for this is that there is no such thing as a fixed ticket price.

They always manage to mess up your ticket or seats...or something. Besides the fact that I hate flying ...

    Many people are concerned about flying and are often referred to as "white-knuckle-flyers." I retired after thirty six years as a pilot for a major airline. Every pilot during his or her career has experienced situations where they've thought it would be nice to be on the ground instead of in the air. However, such experiences are not reasons that would make us afraid to fly ...

JFK Hub Link with Jet Blue - Lufthansa plans

Lufthansa plans JFK Hub Link with Jet Blue
Lufthansa plans to use Jet Blue as its feeder partner in New York by linking booking systems and frequent-flyer programmes. The German airline said the link-up with the US carrier, in which Lufthansa took a 19 per cent stake at the end of last year, was aimed at creating a quasi-hub at JFK airport. It said the move would add to the benefits of owning BMI British Midland, the UK airline in which Lufthansa holds a stake of just under 30 per cent and in which it has an option to buy a majority stake from December.

The German carrier has long wanted to challenge its rival British Airways on the lucrative routes between London Heathrow and the US. Buying out Sir Michael Bishop, BMI's founder and chairman, would give Lufthansa BMI's 11 per cent of take-off and landing slots at London's main airport, making the German carrier the second biggest slot holder at Heathrow.

Wolfgang Mayrhuber, Lufthansa chief executive, would not be drawn about taking over BMI.

Boasting record profits for last year - partly through a copybook integration of Swiss - and a bullish outlook for this year, Mr Mayrhuber said Lufthansa was ready to seize buying opportunities even though he was not working on any specific deal.

He said Lufthansa would have no interest in investing in the large US carrier that would be created if United Airlines, Lufthansa's partner in the Star global airline alliance, and Continental were to develop recent exploratory talks into a full-blown merger. With a strong presence in the Asian and the transatlantic markets, Lufthansa sounded a more optimistic note about the year ahead compared with rivals such as BA, which earns most of its money on US flights and at present has a higher operating profit margin than its German rival.

Lufthansa last year saw operating profit rise 63 per cent to €1.4bn ($2.2bn) and its adjusted operating margin rise by two percentage points to 6.9 per cent. ***

Food Thoughts – San Francisco’s Waterbar, Peet’s, Top Chef and more

Flying Alaska Airlines today for the first time and have thus far been unimpressed… as far as ‘cheap’ airlines go, I am very loyal to Jet Blue. After twittering about this probably being my last Alaska flight, I got some very funny responses.

Steeleydaniel: @berecruited what’s wrong? They taxi the plane by dogsled?

Anyhow, here a few quick food thoughts:

1. Terminal 2 at SFO has Peet’s Coffee.
I ordered a drip and reaffirmed how much I dislike Peet’s coffees. I think their espresso drinks are better than Starbucks – but their drip coffees aren’t flavorful. I get a lot of criticism for saying so, but its hard to find chain coffee that beats Starbucks. Sure, some of their blends are bad (ie Kimono Dragon – terrible), but they rotate the roasts daily and several are terrific (my favorite is Sumatra).

2. Going to Seattle for the first time - which is embarrassing since Russell has lived there for four years (my long-time friend and beRecruited partner). Every time I have planned to visit him, business drives us elsewhere (usually Bay Area or Vegas)… Just my luck, Russell won’t be in Seattle as he is in Atlanta for beRecruited business!

3. Interested to see if the Starbucks in Seattle is really better than the one’s outside of Washington. I hear they are.

4. Top Chef starts tonight… I will set my DVR accordingly. 4 contestants are Bay Area chefs. Great show.

5. Interesting article in the Mercury News about Whole Foods now air-chilling their fresh chicken rather than with water (a Bay Area test that is now moving national). Just last week I was raving about how superior their chicken is compared to other grocers. I suppose this is why.

6. Randi was in town for the last few days and we ate like kings. Our favorite restaurant was The Waterbar (the new seafood place on Embarcadero and beside the Bay Bridge). Spectacular views, amazing food, great wait staff – and everything came out instantly. This is my new favorite SF restaurant – and if you like seafood, do yourself a favor and make a reservation. Amazing. Also enjoyed Blowfish Sushi (better than the Santana Row location). ***
