If JetBlue doesn't want to compete with Southwest than JetBlue will be forced to pick only the major airports for now on because Southwest has just about everything else.
That IS JetBlue's gameplan. You won't be seeing B6 going to Lubbock, Midland, El Paso, or Tucson any time soon. B6 is sticking to a fairly successful strategy of long-distance flying, with some short hops from each of the two coastal hubs (JFK & LGB). Likewise, you won't be seeing WN flying LAX-NYC any time soon.
There are quite a few airports at which B6 can expand that Southwest currently does not fly to (B6 already flies to DEN & ATL, and other airports could include MSP, DFW, & ORD.)
