    Pretty decent numbers, even with the storms. They took a couple percent hit on RASM but still solid numbers.

    JetBlue Airways Corporation (Nasdaq: JBLU) reported its preliminary traffic results for January 2011. Traffic in January increased 5.1 percent from January 2010, on a capacity decrease of 2.6 percent.​
    Load factor for January 2011 was 80.0 percent, an increase of 5.9 points from January 2010. JetBlue's preliminary completion factor was 94.6 percent and its on-time (1) performance was 65.0 percent. JetBlue's preliminary passenger revenue per available seat mile for the month of January increased 13 percent year over year. Approximately two points of this increase was attributable to the impact of snow and ice storms at the end of the month, which resulted in a lower than expected completion factor.​

    I am impressed since it seems that every week there was a weather waiver .

    Its hard to do well in the snow. Delta had poor numbers also (66% on time at JFK vs 60% for B6) , but they have can make up for it since they have hubs in other cities that were not as much weather bound. They did not have any 3 hour tarmac delays (United had one from SAN to SFO [​IMG]) . I think it is better to cancel the flights rather than have people get stuck at the airport (or on a plane).

    B6 definitely has a disadvantage because of its concentration of flights at JFK and BOS, and the weather was awful. But other airlines beat them easily at both airports, which suggests that B6 isn't doing as well as they could be. When I was a crewmember (~2 years ago), they were working hard on dealing with IROPS better-- but clearly there's still more work to do.
