"John brings a wealth of industry experience to JetBlue, and his perspective as the former Director of Flight Standards Service for the Federal Aviation Administration will greatly serve JetBlue, our crewmembers and our customers going forward," Mr. Hnat said.  "I expect John will contribute greatly to JetBlue's culture and on behalf of the company's 15,000 safety-focused crewmembers, we're excited to have him join the team."

I look forward to joining a great team and continuing the tradition of serving JetBlue crewmembers with programs and guidance to ensure we keep learning from each other and our industry peers."
