Hurricane Irene Will 'Impact' Quarter: CEO JetBlue
There is no question that Hurricane Irene will have an impact on quarterly results, Dave Berger, president and CEO of JetBlue Airways, told CNBC Monday.
JetBlue cancelled 1,252 flights due to Hurricane Irene.
"There's no doubt there was a revenue impact. In fact it's probably in the mid-teens in terms of the millions of dollars," Berger said.
"We kind of had this hockey stick, right, from the Caribbean across New York into Boston along our route system," he added.
With so much of JetBlue's operation based along the east coast, the company had to "reposition over fifty aircraft's out of harms way," Berger said.
JetBlue will resume flights starting midafternoon Monday, and will be back to full schedule on Tuesday.
