History of Travel Industry

David Neeleman, JetBlue

Neeleman talks about how JetBlue has been able to succeed in a really bad industry. The airline industry has lost more money than it has ever made. In the beginning of human transportation, be it steam ship lines or railroads, there are very few companies who have survived. It has never been good business to move people. It was with that backdrop that Neeleman decided that he wanted to start an airline.
