I really doubt any airline would announce plans this far out.

True though in all honesty PVD has WN and why go up against them, if you can attract the business by having BOS all to yourself.

honestly i think WN needs some competition at PVD

I don't like to fly on WN because everytime i fly on them i get poor service but i could write a whole trip report on it.

I would like another LCC at PVD

I think FL should try to get in to.

any guesses at what those 14 cities could be? Is the long rumored STL focus/mini hub going to be announced? Would love to see them here in the midwest.

Well I made up my own list of possible destinations:

1.) SAT.
2.) PVD.
3.) CLE/CAK.
4.) MSP.
5.) STL.
6.) MYR.
7.) IND.
8.) DTW.
9.) DAB.
10.) SXM.
11.) ALB.
12.) YVR.
13.) YYZ.
14.) MCI.

Though I'm sure there are some cities that JetBlue would want to add before some of these other cities I listed. (SXM, YVR, YYZ.)

Amen.

Finally someone agrees with me. Everyone i talk to says they love it.

I'll give a quick example of their poor service. It was July 2, 2006 MCO-PVD. We pulled up to the runway, then immediately turned around nobody knew why. of course the only gate open was the one on the other side of the terminal next to the air train. So we sat on the ground for 45 minutes couldn't even get up to go to the bathroom. On top of that i had this cocky lady from Cranston sitting next to me shouting "When the f**k are we gonna Leave"
So we get in the air. The seat belt sign never comes off even though there was no turbulence. The flight attendants (all 60 yrs +) wouldn't let us go to the bathroom, on top of that they keep bringing drinks down the aisle. So 3 hours later we land in PVD and everybody from the flight is sprinting to the bathroom. And the lady from Cranston sitting next yo me wouldn't shut up for the whole flight, and she even yelled at the the f/a's because they wouldn't let her daughter go to the bathroom.

huh what a nightmare.

To be fair, there's a list of cities served by Southwest and jetBlue. This whole thing about other LCCs being 'scared away' from airports that already have Southwest is overblown. It's not as though it's an iron-clad thesis.

Yeah - there are a lot of cities that JetBlue flies to that are also served by WN. However, JetBlue flies to different destinations than WN. Though, I do agree that other LCCs being scared away from airports that Southwest already served is overrated.

I have to agree as well my point being that BOS and PVD are closing enough that B6 is probably attracting passengers to BOS that they would get if they offered service from PVD. And why upset the cart, i.e. WN when you do not need to right now.

but if you lived up in the northeast like i do, its frustrating to go up to BOS which is and 1 hour away when PVD is 20 Min. I think i would much rather go the 20 min to PVD. PVD is an altrenative to BOS. Most people actually go out of PVD or MHT to get away from the BOS traffic and its actaully a lot easier too.

While that might be the case domestically - BOS attracts a lot of international passengers. I remember when I lived in Houston, I lived about fifteen minutes away from Hobby, and fifty minutes away from Houston Intercontinental. So I understand your view... but I often preferred to fly out of Intercontinental. I can see JetBlue adding service to Providence but JetBlue's ops in and out of PVD wouldn't be very large at all.

I agree with you but usually the people i travel with would prefer PVD, as i would prefer BOS. So i kinda like PVD, but if B6 decided to fly there it would be beneficial.

the more you (and other people) go to BOS, the less and less likely B6, FL, or anyone else will come to PVD. These airlines want to see as clear an opportunity to be profitable at a station nefore they enter, so by taking your business to BOS, there is little incentive for them to add service at PVD!

At certain markets the LCCs avoiding each other is NOT overblown. Large hub markets are fine, but not medium hub airports in close proximity (lets say less than 75 miles?) to other medium or large hub airports.

The thing to remember is that with all the aircraft WN, F9, FL, and B6 have coming on-line, there will be less and less places where they will be able to avoid each other (SWF comes to mind).

PVD is highly unlikely... with the mini-hub in BOS, I don't think they'd want to dilute the market share. Though they do fly into EWR and LGA, I think there is more market share to be had there, without stepping on WN's toes...something B6 is trying to avoid.

While i agree that it is unlikey anytime soon, it would actually INCREASE regional marketshare. There is a large population that is in a shared catchment area for PVD and BOS. Legacy airlines like US can thrive because the people can choose whichever airport is conveneint for them at the time (closer to work or home etc...) without having to compromise on their preferred airline.

Someone who lives in New Bedford for example who wants to go to MCO or FLL, but doesnt want to drive to BOS in the morning rush hour may settle for WN or NK out of PVD, whereas if B6 served both, B6 could serve those pax every time.

A simmilar example can be seen with JFK and LGA,EWR and now SWF, its the same concept.

JetBlue Expands Service in the Empire State: Newburgh to be Low-Cost Airline's Sixth New York State Destination
Wednesday October 25, 9:30 am ET




-- New York's Hometown Airline Offers
Hudson Valley Travelers $79(a) Introductory Fare --

-- Two Daily Flights to Florida Begin December 19;
Three Additional Flights to the Sunshine State Begin January 5 --

NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- JetBlue Airways (NASDAQ:JBLU - News), New York's hometown airline, today announces it will begin service between Newburgh's Stewart International Airport (SWF), the airline's sixth New York State destination, and Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida, with daily nonstop flights to each city beginning December 19. Beginning January 5, a second daily flight will be added to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando. Additionally, one daily nonstop flight to West Palm Beach, Florida will begin January 5, making the low-cost carrier the largest airline serving Stewart International Airport.

To celebrate the new service to the low-fare carrier's 49th destination, JetBlue is offering introductory one-way fares to/from Newburgh starting at $79(a) each way, with regular fares ranging between $99(a) and $299(a) each way. Introductory fares, which are subject to availability, must be purchased by November 9, and travel must be completed by February 15, 2007.

''In addition to the convenience of low-fares and nonstop flights, our Newburgh customers will enjoy extra legroom, live entertainment options like DIRECTV(r) and FOX InFlight(tm) movies at every all-leather seat, as well as our friendly, award-winning customer service,'' said David Neeleman, CEO of JetBlue. ''We look forward to providing Hudson Valley customers with more options and more value for their airfare. With the addition of five daily flights from Newburgh to Florida onboard our A320, JetBlue will now offer more nonstop seats to Florida from New York than any other airline.''

''Hudson Valley residents are hungry for air service in the same way all of Upstate was when JetBlue first came to New York. I have big plans for Stewart, and will continue to work to build up the airport for years to come,'' said U.S. Senator Charles E. Schumer. ''JetBlue is going to be a shot in the arm for this region, because where there is affordable airfare, new visitors and new businesses will follow.''

''Once again, JetBlue has shown its commitment to New York and I am proud that we are continuing to strengthen Stewart Airport's capabilities as one of New York's premier regional airports,'' said U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton. ''This announcement is good news for the Hudson Valley. JetBlue's new service to Florida will not only increase low fare travel options for local residents, it will also benefit local businesses and further our efforts to strengthen the local economy.''

''December 19, 2006, December 19, 2006, December 19, 2006, December 19, 2006... If I say that another 10,000 times I still may not have answered all the people who have asked me, 'When is JetBlue coming?,''' said Charles Seliga, President and COO of Stewart International Airport. ''Thank you, Mr. Neeleman; The Hudson Valley has been waiting for this for a long time. You have many customers here, and your company's outstanding reputation precedes you. I could not be more honored. Welcome to Stewart International Airport.''

JetBlue will operate flights to and from Newburgh with its Airbus A320 aircraft. The 156-seat aircraft offers customers roomy all-leather seats, 36 channels of free DIRECTV(r) programming(b) on seat-back televisions as well as a selection of first-run movies and bonus features for a small additional fee from FOX InFlight(tm). JetBlue customers enrolled in the airline's flight gratitude program, TrueBlue, will earn two TrueBlue points each way, with double points awarded for travel purchased online at http://www.jetblue.com. Customers can earn TrueBlue points even faster by using the JetBlue Card from American Express. Every time cardholders purchase JetBlue travel with the Card, or earn at least one TrueBlue point through other purchasing using the Card, all TrueBlue points in the member's account automatically extend for another 12 months.
