Further complicating the route map
It’s been said that whenever anybody travels, all they’re looking to do is get from Point A to Point B as quickly as possible while making little to no stops in between. With the exception of aviation enthusiasts, that’s probably true, and that’s precisely why Mike and I were proud to witness N807BW takeoff from Long Beach yesterday morning. Other than the fact that we always gaze at the way the bluWave livery reflects the “piano keys” when one of our 737s are roaring down the runway, we love knowing that with every flight that we operate, we come one step closer to further expanding this great airline.
With the expansion to the Bay Area, all of us here are making it easier for our customers to get to their final destination directly rather than adding additional travel time in a car (yuck!). This was particularly prevalent to the engineers in Silicon Valley who, when flying into San Francisco, would have to spend (in some instances) up to sixty minutes in their cars on Route 101 to begin their vigorous workout in C+, C++, C# or whichever other coding language they might use. Now, they can get back to doing what they love faster than ever.
So, what’s next? Dallas? Houston? St. Louis? *chuckle* I can’t spill the beans on where we’re headed next, but Mike and I always have a plan. Unfortunately, this plan always has a consequence, and recently that consequence has been further complicating our route map. I’m sure there are more serious consequences, but until we find a new way to display our destinations on the “Where We Fly” page, Photoshop will continuously give me grief when I try and connect routes with destinations within miles of each other.
But, in one week’s time, we’re going to be announcing something big–something that involves major operational changes to our infrastructure. Are we finally getting that new crew lounge at the corner of Haven St and E Diablo Ave? How about some more 737-800s? Or maybe that long awaited ACARS system! I’m not telling! *zips lips* Just stay tuned to this blog on Tuesday. We have a press release scheduled for 10:30am PT at our headquarters, so if you’re in the area, stop by. You won’t want to miss this!
Mike and I both want to thank First Officer Johnathon Neilsen for making this possible. Since the purchase of four (4) Boeing 737s from SnapJet Airlines, LLC. back in February, we’ve had some trouble finding pilots to ferry these aircraft from Miami-Dade to Vegas, but with his help, this aircraft is now flying high.
That’s all I’ve got for now, folks. Off to lunch!
