Just going back to this one – and the reason for Lufthansa making the investment in Jetblue – this story from the FT website
Lufthansa seeks JetBlue code-share
seems like sometime this week the application will be filed, allowing Lufthansa to “broaden its footprint at John F Kennedy International Airport, a key US gateway to the world”, (Lufthansa acquired a 19 per cent stake in JetBlue last year for $300m).
“JetBlue possesses a large trove of take-off and landing slots at JFK – one of the world’s top international airports in the largest US city. Last year, the carrier opened a new, state-of-the-art terminal at JFK capable of handling as many as 250 flights a day.”
“We’re looking to capitalise on our position at JFK, where we’re the largest domestic airline,” JetBlue said.
