  1. The four principles of David Jaxon are solid. I would summarize them like this:
    – provide choices or share thinking;
    – have empathy;
    – preserve self-concept;
    – share control (if you light one’s candle with your own, is your candle any less bright?).

  2. I think Virgin was a better fit for JetBlue.
