Only four months since dropping its original complaint against the Dutch government, JetBlue has filed a new one against the state and the European Union. The US airline fears that under the latest capacity reduction plan, it will be expulsed from Amsterdam Schiphol Airport at the end of March. JetBlue only launched services to Amsterdam in late August.

JetBlue has been aware that its long-term position at Schiphol is most uncertain, as CEO Robin Hayes confirmed on August 30 during a media roundtable on the occasion of the inaugural New York-Amsterdam service. In March, the carrier did secure slots for this summer season, which ends on October 28, and for the winter season until March 30. Hayes said that he was working very hard to get slots for the 2024 summer season as well, but was fully aware that he might not get them.
