Some at the company had urged moving the headquarters to Orlando, but its employees – who are all called crew members – voiced that they were against that idea.

At the opening of the new headquarters, Sen. Charles Schumer said that was a good thing.

“Look what happened when TWA and Pan Am left New York. They went under. I remember when American [Airlines] left New York. Mr. Casey was the head of American, left to go to Dallas. He’s bankrupt. When you leave New York, as an airline, something bad happens,” said Schumer.
