An island couple is doing their part to encourage Jet Blue to begin service to the islands. The low-cost/high-service airline announced plans last year to acquire more planes and increase service to the Caribbean, but didn’t get specific. Now, Mark and Nanci Shekleton are suggesting an e-mail campaign to persuade the airline to put St. Thomas on its route map. "We’ve blitzed them with e-mails the past week. although it’s a long shot," conceded Nanci who, with her husband, own Sea View Vacation Homes, a villa management agency.
