JetBlue travel packages exceeding pre-pandemic volumes: Andres Barry

JetBlue Travel Products President Andres Barry argues ‘there’s more supply in the market than there was a year ago.’

A passenger on a JetBlue flight from New York City to Detroit was arrested after allegedly exposing himself and masturbating on the domestic flight. 

"There was chatter what had happened when we were on the plane," Chris Farina, a FOX 2 Detroit employee who happened to be on the flight, said of the incident. "The talk was he exposed himself and now find out it was a little more than that."

"It’s not something you expect flying home," he added. 

The incident reportedly unfolded on Monday evening during a two-hour flight from Kennedy Airport to Detroit.
