David Neeleman interview


Recommended Posts

This link will take you to a long interview with David Neeleman, JetBlue, WestJet, Southwest, MorrisAir.


He has some interesting points:

1. Are legacy airlines dead?

I don't think it's dead. I think that there will be a certain shakeout in the industry.

2. On the Southwest 'model':

we thought they may be a little too much of a prisoner to their success.

3. On unions:

We don't want a third party who may or may not have our best interests in mind or our crew members' best interests in mind because they may be serving a union of one of our competitors.

4. Salaries:

You continue to bring people into the company and income-average those salaries.

5. Fast growth:

And the second thing is that because you have too many planes or too many stores open or whatever, you basically don't have any more business.

Have a read.
