Why JetBlue can’t crack a smile

by Walter Olson on August 11, 2010

The airline’s legal department is almost certainly insisting on a sober demeanor, and as a result JetBlue has to stay on the sidelines as the Steven Slater episode becomes the internet story of the week. [Parekh/Bush, AdAge via Balasubramani]

This seems like a made for BO moment, he should be getting the miscreant passenger, Slater and the feds to all drop by for a beer and chat in the Rose Garden. We already know Steve drinks beer, but what brand? Enquiring minds want to know.

On a semi-serious moment, given the public support for Slater I can’t imagine the DOJ would allow this to go to trial, just one or two regular airline passengers on the jury and free he would go.

JetBlue comments, or more accurately, no-comments.
