"jetblue" Discussed on Squawk Pod
"The bank bailouts ever were. Well, I think, Andrew. The Way I look at that is what is the right return on investment for the government and there's a number way of doing that I. Happen, to think that the way the cares program has been very thoughtfully structured is already offering that return on investment because first of all, as I go I said, the alternative is spend that money in unemployment and lost tax income, and secondly it's to make sure that this industry is here ready to go. Next year I mean what will happen in the event of significant follows significant fleet retirements is it and we've seen this before it falls disproportionately on smaller and medium size communities, Robin I'm prepared. As a taxpayer unprepared to give you the money I'm just saying what are you I'm asking you forget about I appreciate what it's GonNa do for the economy broadly that was by the way the argument that was made by the banks that the time which you need to save the banks to save the economy. So let's all agree on that. What I'm saying is why are you saying? Sure? Let Com dilute the shareholder. The US government will end up owning a stake in this and if successful, the taxpayer will be beneficiary of that. Are you prepared to go into bankruptcy rather than take tax payer money that would ultimately hurt your shareholder in the short term if you're really here to care about employees and the whole thing doesn't make sense. Andrew I. I understand the point you're making an I an I. You know I think this all comes back to making sure the taxpayer gets for money. What I'm what I'm saying is that I believe this program offers great vibe for money because if these mass furloughs take place, there is a real cost of that and it's a significant cost. And I think we can't forget that we can't that. We can't be surprised about that if that if that happens and so that is where the government is getting a return and of course, the the impact, the multiplier effect on a have all of that goes back to the government order that goes back informs of revenues, and so that's what we had focused on cow and that's what we believed. Powerful should be Robin. You sign a letter to to Mayor de Blasio and and in coma I know you wanted to make some some comments about how important it is you know that people can come into I'm here at the time scrap luckily surrounded by and the NYPD's finest but.

But we want to make sure that the that we can do that safely, and we WANNA make sure that some of the quality of life issues and some of the issues are people are raising with us that address. If you look at the US domestic aviation market New York is recovering more slowly than any other part of the country, and that's even though we can. We really kind of saw the krona virus peak earlier than anyone else. So we need strong economic plan to dig US out of this in a way that obviously keeps everyone safe. You know the good news is we have fabulous was also in New, York we have somebody amazing talented people across the public sector communities that need to come together and help is through this I mean we all know people that are saying, they don't WanNa come back into the city we are. We see the pressure on small businesses. We see the hotels closing some of these things are. Going to be very hard reversed and as we start working on it very soon. So That's important to us. We see these. We also have a quantum that has an impact on a air travel in new. York, and we need to find a way of stimulating Ataman keeping people safe at. We're committed to do that and. Speaking to you more about. Well January first is coming someday Robin. We can just forget about a lot of stuff that happened in twenty twenty. Maybe there's some good things that happened as well. No anyway. Robyn. Thank you. We appreciate it. Thank you. Okay. We'll see. Coming up on squawk pod a new report reveals that if the lat next community in the US were its own country, it would have the eighth largest GDP in the world investor and founder of latitude Solomon Toribio through thirds of the US fortune one, hundred have no Latino four which doesn't make sense to me we'll be right back. You're listening to Squawk pod with Joe Kernan Becky Quick Andrew. Ross Sorkin. Here's Joe.

US Latino GDP living here Saul would be the eighth largest GDP in the world in bigger than. Italy Brazil or South. Korea just just living in the United States that that's something that people need to know about because we need to probably react in certain ways that info well, good morning good morning, Joe You're exactly right and I think one of the Keith keep points of bringing this. To the conversation here on on your show is that at the end of the day, you can talk about tech you can talk about trans. You could talk about a lot of things, but you need customers. and. You need workers. And you need people that are creating the pro- productivity in the economy. So GDP becomes a critical number, not just the do W NASDAQ and the S&P, and so one of the key things that were were doing is trying to bring this reality to us in terms of how we think about our economy and they'll US Latino or is driving so much growth that in the latest study from the time we talked last year.

Ill And I was back home in February. Visiting my parents can also do an assignment and I had an injection and I try to go see a doctor. And it was the prices just exorbitant. Like thousand two hundred dollars just to get a doctor to look at my. I get a prescription so I just can't even imagine what it's like to deal with co bit right now as an American. So you're in lockdown which means you can't even go to restaurants and enjoy food no so everything is closed except for the essentials. They're quite strict about it. Because the cops. I live in the center of Paris and the cops have been actively I guess. Checking with people I went out yesterday for the first time because my laptop screen shattered on over the weekend. Which is so unfortunate. Never happened once. My life and Apple France has no way of fixing it side to find like a third party person of exit and I went out for the first time yesterday and it was terrifying. Explain that what was terrifying about it. I I'm reporting a lot of stuff for US news source new sites right now and so. I'm really up to date with like everything. Cove it And so I was reading a report from Finland about how like even sixteen might not be enough of distance. So it's a bike a four kilometers away yesterday to drop off my and people outside. Were not respecting social distancing A lot of people aren't wearing masks. Their parts of the city with half open produce shops and it was filled with people I was biking to dodge other people on the streets. A lot of cars have stopped respecting driving rules. I don't drive never driven in my life so I don't know what they are but I know for a fact. You should not be you turning wherever you want. I was on my bike. Like dodging cars as well It just seems very foreign world outside. It's society I don't recognize anymore now. You're also photographer. Are you documenting any of this? Not only for you sort of personal history but the back in the US. So I did a story. Few weeks ago for business insider about the first few days of walk down so yes I was documenting actively I'm still shooting from my window I just. I don't feel comfortable at all going outside. I've severe asthma even before this started like I'm always sick with like my lungs. I I just don't want to be outside right now I'm trying my best. I have a food diary with those going on of the foods. I'm eating at home Documenting life in my fifty square meters apartment as much as I can buy also fell like this crippling anxiety Trying my best to balance it out and I've been reading a lot about like why creatives don't feel very productive right now or anyone. Actually I was reading about grief at the beginning of how we're grieving like the old world and society we used to know. That's a bit much but now I've really under I think that's what it is like. I go through these weird cycles. I've never experienced really before. The other part is that my partner and I are in lockdown together. And he's a very logical person in. He's just doing what he has to do going to work from his off from our couch every day on like he's just like it's out of my control whereas I'm like spires really on my own. How do you think travel is going to change? Eilly the thing. The weird thing is that I travel so much so in the past three or four years. I've graduated from photography school. I was travelling like nine months of the year. And it's weird. I have like a background in conservation. Biology some all about being ECO friendly. I was just like Kinda gross out by how much I was traveling. Bozo where the The travel world was heading towards it was just too much like all these people taking weekend trips like for me. Traveling is about really understanding place and it requires time and so I told all editors I would not be traveling as much this year and so for me. It feels just like the perfect storm like I now don't have to explain to everyone. I'm not traveling as much. I've ING moving forward. We won't be traveling as much. We'll be chopping in a more thoughtful way. Which is a good thing definitely. I'm worried about all the people I've written about who works who make their income off tourism. That's one of the scariest things for me. And I have lots of family. Also still in Korea and Korea's kind of ahead of everyone else with the pandemic I would say and even they who have mostly under control people aren't moving as much So I think we won't be traveling for like a good year until the viruses totally controlled which means we have a cure or vaccine.

"jetblue" Discussed on Here & Now
"From NPR and WBZ YOU are. I'm Jeremy Hobson. I'm Peter o'dowd this is here now. The World Health Organization is now calling the spread of Cova nineteen a global pandemic and here in the US. The Federal Aviation Administration said today that it will waive minimum flight requirements at some airports through may throwing a lifeline to airlines. That have seen a drop off in travel demand due to the outbreak. Airlines can lose their slots at crowded airports. If they don't use them in many in the industry had been calling on the FAA to waive that requirement. One of them is Robin Hayes CEO of jetblue. Who joins me now in Robin? I know you're hoping for that. Change because business is way down for jetblue and other carriers. How bad is it? I would say we're in the middle of a very significant impact. Some would say devastating impact to the airline industry. We really see these sorts of events every ten years or so. I mean for me. Nine eleven is the closest to what we're seeing now a that was a very sort of fear driven event. There were lots of concerns just after nine eleven about flying and we really saying the same now with the corona virus. How would you quantify it? I mean could you tell us how many flights you've had to cancel? How much you've seen. Revenues go down show so again. Let me compare it to nine. Eleven nine eleven we saw the US in on industry full about thirty percent from just before to just after that. Tragic event with saying bookings Come off to an even greater extent. How long are you prepared for it to go on what we're planning this to go on for vice significant Time the good news for jetblue is that we have a voice strong balance sheet. We've been preparing ten years for this event acting very quickly to cut capacity would use call so we can weather this A. No one really knows how long this will lost. Some people will point to China inside the Airline industry has started to Kaba. Aye Off Deny Eleven. That was really. It was two years before you would say. The industry was back to a white walls before nine eleven. So we're able willing to sit this out for a long period of time and we're willing to do what it takes to make sure jetblue can come through this successfully willing. I've already heard you say that in some ways it's worse than nine eleven and as you know at that time. The federal government bailed out the airlines offering billions of dollars. Do you think that will be necessary this time are you? Do you want federal help from the federal government? Yeah the industry here in the. Us is innovative in place to where it was even ten years ago. Pre The financial crisis. it's pretty healthy We've built stronger balance sheets. We've all got good liquidity. And so I think the economic backdrop the airlines is very different airlines much more able to withstand something like this and they were a ten years ago. What are you doing to accommodate your flight crew? They are exposed to people more than anybody else on those airplanes. Show so festival. That's a very important question. You know a number one priority is the safety and security of both our crew members and our customers so I remember the train to to handle customers when they get sick. We have protective equipment on bold. Also we've also changed out service routines to Would remove some of the Contact Point so for example we've suspended service And also we enabling out in flight crews to wag gloves if that's something they would like to do and I would also say that When we think about flying we really want people to think about it. It's the safest anything else you do on your date in your day to day lives are going to the grocery store going to the library grabbing a coffee Jetblue is deep cleaning airplanes overnight. We're sanitizing them with disinfecting them. We have Disinfectant wipes on the airplane for customers if they want to wipe down their own seats and the systems in the airplanes. I think there's a lot of misconceptions about this but we use hospital grade Filtering systems on planes. The in a cabin is recycling every three minutes and it flows from top to bottom. There's not really any lateral movement on an airplane off the at and so the thing is if you're feeling well don't fly. I mean jetblue is offering a free changes and cancellations to customers at the moment. So take advantage of that. If you can delay your trip what do you think this could potentially due to the airline industry if we're still struggling a year from now Do you expect either bankruptcies or reshuffling mergers that sort of thing to to kick in what I think the. Us industry is is about the strongest in the world at the moment. So I think the. Us Industry is best equipped to survive. I think that You took a number of airlines in Asia and Europe. That were already struggling to get by. They will only already very highly leveraged I think it's going to be a real challenge for them. And and many of them may not lost even a year. We've already seen one. Uk based airline go into bankruptcy last week and I think that'd be all to follow in the in the near future. Actually that's Robin Hayes. Ceo of jetblue. Thank you sir. Thank you very much. Well the epicenter of the Corona viruses the Chinese city of Wuhan which has been locked down for weeks but yesterday President Xi Jinping visited and said there has been a promising. Turn in containment there. Npr's Beijing correspondent. Emily Fang joins us. Now Hi Emily. Hey Jeremy so you're in Beijing but what are you hearing about whether life is returning to normal in Woo Hon? It's still incomplete. Down officials are debating right now about whether to let people's travel again and return to work. But you could understand. The officials are still really wary of allowing reinfection surge of new cases to happen and so who province where it's located is still very much under quarantine but the rest of China is slowly returning back to work and we are seeing the numbers of new cases fall. Dramatically in China. Is it clear why that is? It's because of the stringent quarantine and social distancing measures that China has taken. There was a recent paper that was published yesterday. from researchers Both from the US end from China. That said these quarantine measures work albeit at a very high cost to the economy to civil liberties and in fact they pointed out one thing that might be new and also effective. Which are these new quarantine center? Is that China built over the course of several weeks to put Patients with mild or suspected symptoms of the corona virus because a major source of transmission. Was these people are going home and affecting their family members. Emily in this country. There is a lot of anger about people being able to get tests if they want if you want a test for corona virus in China. Is it hard to get it at the very beginning of the outbreak? Particularly in the epicenter and they province it was very difficult to get tests and there were multiple private companies that we're putting forth These tests which were not entirely accurate you saw a lot of false negatives so the testing issue is something. That's universal Emily what about your life in Beijing on a daily basis? What is it like there now? Honestly I cannot remember what life was like before the outbreak. Things are still really quiet. Beijing isn't a unique place because it was A. I hear city a major Cosmopolitan Center. That was never completely sealed off in part because it's a seat of government in China but it's also where a lot of international travelers come in and so the fear now in Beijing is there will be imported cases from Japan Korea even the US which was reported yesterday. So Beijing is now tightening quarantine measures with the rest of the country with the exception of who bay are loosening them just yesterday. Said there's a foreigner should not travel and then today they announced that anyone who comes from abroad comes back to Beijing has to self quarantine for two weeks one of the things that you almost never see in the press when it comes to stories about China and China's government is criticism from people in China. But in this case we have seen some of that. How do people feel about how the government has handled this? It's complicated there has been a lot of criticism and interestingly enough. Some of that criticism has been allowed to survive publicly. The reason for that is a lot of the frustration as with how local officials on the ground bungled the initial approach to containing the outbreak and then tried to cover up the illness but now the central government has come in and impose these very rigorous very many people's is responsible quarantine measures and so the anger is directed not at top leaders like Xi Jinping but people in one and who may province who had been fired. Do you think that this experience is going to make China and China's government more transparent going forward? No I don't think so and it might end up being a PR win for the Chinese Communist Party. At the beginning people were saying this might be an incredible embarrassment because they haven't been able to contain this virus but as countries like the US in Italy struggle with how to test and take care of their own patients. China has been saying we've done a great job with quarantine measures because unique centralized authoritarian model of governance and it could be a PR win for them. And what about surveillance? How is the government tracking people in their daily lives.

"jetblue" Discussed on How I Built This
"Don't work at the office so you can call someone someone in their in their furry bath slippers or in a row. Whatever so I was in a group like this with about three hundred of our people and I said how many of you have spoken to someone someone who have spoken to me on airplane? Almost every single hand went up so that was a mark for them. Hey I talked to your CEO on the airplane. It wasn't just that I talked to those people bull. At least three hundred people knew that I talked to people on airplanes and that was important to them that I was the kind of Co that would talk to the customers. It's just the cultural thing and it's symbolic but it's also very important and it keeps us in touch with our customers. I mean there's a flip side to that right so if you think of a of an airline spirit. Their value proposition is. It's cheap and they're very open about it. I mean I've I've had good experiences on it. But that's not what they're selling they are selling cheap cheap ticket jetblue southwest. They're selling an experience. They want you to feel good when you're on their planes and feel good about the price you paid but when there's a crisis like there wasn't two thousand seven it was a big blizzard. Jet Blue Airlines grounded you got a disproportionate amount of the grief for that. Yeah I did. Did you almost set yourself up for that because you said look. We are all about the customer. We're all about you know I think in that case there were all the customers. I mean I. We should just briefly. Explain the planes grounded. There's a blizzard. People were stuck on the tarmac I ice pellets and so it was some the FA had come up with this rule just lasted that one in year. Two thousand seven. And that was it said if you have ice pellets. You can't take off. People were on airplanes. It wasn't really my responsibility. It was our coo to take care of it. But I took responsibility ability. I started with today show in the morning and I ended with Letterman at night. And I did twenty interviews in between and we created a customer bill of rights. We took a media hit hit but within two weeks because of the customer bill of Rights thinks had returned. The only people who weren't convinced was the Jet Blue Board. That kind of I don't know what they were thinking. They kind of lost their away and they had decided to take the CEELO who is in charge of the company that time making the CEO. Yeah I mean you were you were like just to make a point. I mean when you were pushed out of the company that you create. Yeah Yeah and you're not involved with it anymore today. Well I'm a shareholder currency. Oh thank goodness the board now has him there. He's a good guy calls all the time for advice and we talk and you still fly jetblue all the time for Free I love it. So does my family so we all we all Joe Blue so but you know the company. We had some some academics on our board. That started thinking. Oh this is the entrepreneurs dilemma. It's time to turn this over to professional management. Let's do this and kick David up to be the chairman and I think there's nothing like an entrepreneur. You know there might be isolated cases. Where the entrepreneur dilemma you know is the case but in most cases? There's this is nothing that can substitute for passion. I'd love to do a business case I teach courses at Stanford actually with my high school diploma. I don't even have a college degree degree. And so and so I teach a couple of different courses and I would like to say okay. How you doing physical? You're like okay. Here's the case. This is what happened now. You determine if the removal of this entrepreneur as the head based on what it happened in the last twelve years was smart decision by the board or a bad decision. I would love to have that case and debate that yeah and personally I mean I've gone on to create a goal has an amazing company and I think I said this on the podcast but I've got fifteen thousand people that work for me in as well and we actually survey our people every year and ask them. Hey do you like us. Do you like the job doing. How do you like your job? How you on your salary? Hey like your benefits. How do you like the way your supervisor treats you? And the scores. There are just unbelievable. I've never seen eighty seven percent of our people. Just love it and the mantra down there is. We want this to be the best job of your life so I walk around to everybody. Is this the best job your life. Is this the best of your life. And if they hesitate a why not. Why not? What can we do better? I WANNA ask a bit more about how you motivate employees. I remember Howard. Schultz was talking about starbucks. And some of the things they do to make sure that their employees are you know feel fulfilled and they actually have some of the lowest employee turnover rates in the business. I mean this is important because you lose an employee it's really expensive. You WanNA retain employees. The airline business really tough. Being a flight attendant is a tough job. You're on the front lines of customer complaints. Or if you're at the ticketing counter or at the gate eight and you're getting a lot of abuse what do you do. You mentioned that you walk around. He says is the best job you've had but of course you're Neelam in your founder and the best job I've ever Brad. They're not gonNA say it sucks. I mean this is an important part of a business and culture right even if you're on a building a business small-scale how do you make sure that that is the first second or third most important thing you do. It's just critical. I mean if you are service business you have to figure out how to make people excited about coming to work or at least make them feel that they don't dread coming to work. I want really wanted. There's someone to kind of wake up in the morning and say it's workday and not say hate my job and I think it all starts with hiring people with the right attitude. I mean some people. Just don't like an Isis. Say this law the time we get hundreds of thousands of resumes. We really got to find out if you like people. And it's okay if you don't like people it's okay just don't don't work for us you know. And the people are just wired different than others so gifts right with right people and then you have to train them really well and you have to create expectations uh-huh and you have to support him and you have to give him great tools to work with and new airplanes and dre looking uniforms and then you have to stand behind find him and you have to teach them. Look if you go and you'd be nice to people and they love you and they appreciate you your jobs just a lot more fun if you go and it just be angry people and treat them like garbage then they treat you a garbage and then you hit your job. How difficult is that? Yeah it'd be nice to people I mean. I remember one time time. I was talking to one of our our agents at the airport in Buffalo New York and she says I love my job so much and she goes and I'm celebrity in in my town because I worked for jetblue. What do you mean she goes? No I go to the bank to cash my check and I said you should have deposit but and the bank teller said Oh you were. What's it like to work for that great company? I Love Jet Blue and she goes I smile and then I go to church some Feuilles. He Jet Blue Jet Blue and so and then I went on my day off where all my jetblue tire because people just love meek because I worked for jetblue. So that's what you WANNA create. You know you wanNA create a friend where people are excited to work for you because you're helping other people. You're helping them find their you. Don't get to their family members and and that's what you have to try to do and if you can do that doc you're going to have a company that will be more successful. We'll make more money and you business. That's David Neilson now. Under of Jet Blue and Azuma Brazilian airlines and just recently announced plans to launch a brand new company RES Airways a low cost airline based out of Salt Lake City.

"Annoying the entire state. He wants to talk about Being a good economist. That's the worst return on Investment I. I wouldn't invest with that guy in one hundred years so you can't buy your way in. You gotta spend time person a person here. That's why Bernie does well this way. Trump does well here. Frankly because what you see is what you get a understanding handle that governor it is it is. What's on your license plates? Live free or die. I just don't understand it more than four words on a license plate. It's how we live here. That's what I mean so when you live under socialism or are you free no of course not in. That's right away with New Hampshire it makes the trump maybe trump wa. I still don't even the Democrats in New Hampshire Oughta be imbued with a little of that sentiment. No and they're going to support a socialist. Well they are I mean look. That's why Bernie got sixty percent. Six hundred thousand sixteen. He'll be lucky to get thirty percent. this this time around. You have more moderates that are trying to be moderate colobus ours going to search. He's going to surprised a lot of people today. Biden Buddha. jig Is Socialist. He comes off as a motor but he's very social along with warne which ultimately is going to lead to a very brokered convention convention. This summer is going to be very ugly. It's going to be like. W W E matching Milwaukee as they try to figure it out and they're not going to be able to right. They're just not going to because they don't the two sides of that party. Don't play well in the sandbox with strong economy. That's what's GonNa give trump the momentum to win November. So have you been Dixville Notch. I Have I won. I won their sixty two two and my first election in sixteen and that was present. So what about Bloomberg. He won three of those people. There is that is that a harbinger. No basically I don't know for sure I think all the folks voting. They're pretty much all of the same family so you know. They just had a burp Bloomberg on the mind. Going to go vote for Bloomberg Bloomberg is Kinda thumbed. MD's knows here in terms of New Hampshire. He's trying to buy an election which the progressive socialist are not going to allow a OUGHTA touch white old billionaire by his way into the nation. That's just just not going to happen. Now he will be influential because he's ultimately going to get a lot of delegates as will biden and some of the other candidates they're going to have to figure all that out but I just can't see nationally nationally Bloomberg walking away with this thing the socialist pushed Pelosi around their shirts that can push Bloomberg and binding around. I don't care how much money they have to use. Think when it's all said Said and done then at Bernie Sanders is going to be the nominee. I think that's the most likely scenario but it's going to be ugly. It is because it means the the moderates aren't gonNA come out for him if if it's a moderate socialist won't come out for them they just don't play well together those two sides and I don't think they're gonNA just magically get it together all of a sudden and right before right before November so that it could be also somebody that we don't even know I mean it literally could be a candidate that isn't running that's how brokered convention sometimes play out out so it's GonNa be exciting on their side. But in the meantime we're focused on the economy is booming. Economy here in New Hampshire. A lot of states are doing very well economically. That means more money in people's pockets. Get for themselves for their neighbors their community. That's how they're going to vote in November because it's in their interest to secure for themselves their family and their future economy really does drive. Live a lot of what happens in that ballot box governor a brokered convention could be the best bet for Bloomberg though. Obviously he's coming at this very unconventionally. It could be because I don't know what what happens with a guy with they've never had a broke convention with a billionaire that doesn't care about his billions it will spend whatever he needs within that convention medium. I don't know how that would work. It's going to be. It's going to be interesting to watch. That's for sure you know who knows who who really knows. I think Warren is GonNa really start falling off if Biden doesn't do well. He's got to put all his money into south. Carolina Hopefully Win South Carolina and give himself a little bit of momentum to win some of those southern Democrat states where he should do well in Bloomberg spending a fortune in in places like Texas and Massachusetts and other states right now states that he could not win in the general by the way but he could get him the nomination are well. Thanks for coming on wall. Maybe we'll check back with after we get the results but you bet on absolutely bet I got all the answers. No nothing that you're never in doubt we liked uh-huh coming up.
