spur of the moment decided to go to fort lauderdale via jfk friday afternoon

buying a ticket at the airport boarding all went nicely
at ticketing it was interesting how enthusiastic the employees were

i asked what jetblue plans to do with the old terminal after the new one is built

one employee said it remains a matter of debate at the company whether to keep the space of vacate it

another said we better keep it because we are growing so fast we need the space

and added we dont wish delta ill but we are growing fast as they do the opposite

anyways........we are hanging just a bit to long on the plane at the gate when the pilot announces

there is a problem with a secondary braking system and they need to make some phone calls to determine whether its legal to fly the plane without that backup system...he said he had plenty of other ways to stop the plane if necessary

about 30 minute later the word came down ....

nope ...not legal

so we deplane and wait...........5 hours for a spare plane


couple of thoughts..

waiting 5 hours really really sucks!!!
(i cant even begin to imagine what it must have been like during the valentines day massacre)

why did at least two subsequent fort lauderdales planes take off while we still waited?

why at their largest hub could they not scrape up another plane for 5 hours?

why did no one ever make any announcement about what our compensation will be although we did talk about it among ourselves
(jetblue bill of rights)

bottom line is i hate them today
