Identify the year and describe the factors that played the largest role in making it an exceptional year for the comement (Exhibit 4)? Given what you know about JetBlue from the case, how would you explain these changes? Develop recommendations(s) for a 3-5 year strategy. Provide an overview of the timetable and required resources.
