Three American citizens were aboard a Boeing 777 airplane that has gone missing.
JetBlue Airways announced destinations for its flights at Washington, D.C.'s Ronald Reagan Airport that were acquired from the merger of US Airways and American Airlines.
JetBlue was awarded the right to operate 12 flights at Reagan airport that US Air and American were required to relinquish in exchange for approval of their merger last year.
Flights at the Washington, D.C. airport, as well as New York's LaGuardia Airport, are regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in an effort to reduce airplane congestion.
JetBlue said Thursday that it would use three of the pairs of flights to and from Reagan Airport to offer service to Charleston, S.C. and Hartford, Conn.; and Nassau, Bahamas.
The measure, dubbed the Transparent Airfares Act of 2014 (H.R 4156), would eliminate regulations that require airlines to include taxes and fees in the price quotes they give to passengers when they shop online for flights.
Passengers who board flights at airports that have passport kiosks spend half as much time waiting for custom check-ins for their flights as those who do not, according to a study reported Thursday by USA Today.

A passenger on a Canadian airline flight left a sexist note for a female pilot, according to multiple media reports.
The passenger took issue with the fact that the pilot of his WestJet Airlines flight was a woman.
"The cockpit of airlier [sic] is no place for a woman,” the passenger wrote on a napkin he left on his assigned seat when he was exiting the airplane.
“A woman being a mother is the most honor not as ‘captain’ Proverbs 31 (Sorry not P.C.),” the note continued. “P.S. I wish WestJet could tell me a fair lady is at the helm so I can book another flight! Were [sic] short mothers not pilots WestJet.”
Officials in Wichita, Kan., are moving to rename the city’s Mid-Continent Airport after former President Dwight Eisenhower, CNN reports.
If the name change is approved, Eisenhower would join fellow former president Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush, Ronald Reagan and John F. Kennedy in having an airport named after them.
The American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE) is calling for Congress to increase the airport user fees that are paid by airline passengers to higher levels than President Obama is calling for in his fiscal 2015 budget.
Obama is calling for lawmakers to increase the passenger facility charge that is added to the price of airline tickets from $4 to $8 in his budget proposal that was officially released on Tuesday.
AAAE President Todd Hauptli said the fee should be increased to $8.50, instead of the level Obama is proposing.
