The article discusses the decline of the number of passengers taking flights in JetBlue Airways Corp. and ExpressJet Airlines in Tucson, Arizona. The author added that the low numbers posted by both airline companies could put Tucson on the chopping block, unless passengers start coming up to the service. Director of corporate communication Bryan Baldwin states that 2008 will be a "critical proving year" of JetBlue's non-stop flights to John F. Kenney Airport in New York.
