David Neeleman has founded four successful, independent airlines. Jet Blue was the first airline to earn $100 million annually within five years and became world renowned for its low fares and exceptional customer service. This year, David will launch Breeze Airways, which will fly non-stop service between places currently without meaningful or affordable service, and aims to be “the world’s nicest airline.'”
