CHICAGO (Reuters) - JetBlue Airways Corp (JBLU.O) Chief Executive Officer Robin Hayes said on Thursday that the U.S. aviation system is nearing a “tipping point” due to the partial government shutdown, which is in its 34th day.

On a conference call with investors, Hayes said the shutdown may cause delays, long lines and cancelled flights.
