The folks in the Massachusetts town have been publicly wooing JetBlue to offer service from their airport. Apparently part of the challenge there is getting the folks at the New York City-based airline to learn how to speak the local language so that they can properly discuss whether to offer service or not. In most cases pronouncing a city name is pretty easy. But as the Massachusetts-native SVP of Marketing had fun proving at the expense of the NYC staff he spoke with around the office last Friday, Worcester is not one of the easy ones.
Yes, it is silly, but it sure is fun.
Oh, and for those still a bit confused, the proper answer is something like Wuh’-stuh, though as a native of North Florida trusting me on this one is probably not the smartest plan.
On a more serious note, no official word yet on whether JetBlue will be launching service from the central-Massachusetts town. But based on the public comments over the past several months I won’t be too surprised when it comes to pass.
