JetBlue Promotes Dave Clark to Head of Revenue and Planning – JetBlue Media Room
This is good news for Dave Clark who used to run network planning, then revenue management, and now will be in charge of both. He should do a great job. But the bigger news is that he is getting this job, because he’s replacing Scott Laurence who will leave the airline. I have heard from three entirely unrelated parties that Scott is heading down south to work for another airline, but that airline did not respond to my request for confirmation. If it is true, that will be very bad news for American and JetBlue if a chief architect of the Northeast Alliance is now defecting.

Hello There. We Decided To Hang Out Over Here. At Least For Now. – PlanePerspectives
In case you missed it, Holly Hegeman has decided to hang it up over at PlaneBusiness. The PlaneBusiness Banter, a staple read for me since I was in college, is now gone. For now, she’ll be posting updates at PlanePerspectives which is linked above, so you can follow over there until she resurfaces. Thanks, Holly, for helping kindle my love of the business side of this industry way back in the day. I look forward to seeing what’s next.
