That is pretty impressive. I've never heard of a CEO doing anything like that. I'm convinced now that my next flight will be on JetBlue.

Apparently, Neeleman and his partners are heavily into using IT to streamline operations and make JetBlue efficient. Ya gotta love someone who actually knows how to use IT properly.

While we've got a new CIO - watching the entire team work together is amazing. Training for crewmembers, paperless systems for pilots, and rolling out Wireless to a few terminals, it makes me proud to be here.

If he hadn't volunteered passenger information to test CAPPS II, I would think he was a lot cooler. Fortunately, he changed his mind.

A smart move from Dave Neeleman, but he seems inspired by Stelios (founder of easyJet), who did similarly back in 1995/1996 when easyJet started.
