Hello,

A friend of mine was talking last night about general topics and she mentioned she had heard that Jet Blue may be coming to serve SDF. I can't imagine them doing this with the A320 but hopefully we'll get service from the RJ190.

Does anybody have any information to substantiate this great rumor?

John

If I was Neelman, I'd go to MSP now. I have friends that live there (13 and 15 years old, to aviation people) who knew about jetBlue and wanted to fly them! They are probably the most popular airline in MSP that doesn't fly there. after MSP, I'd start ATL-FLL and ATL-MSP and ATL-JFK.

How about Honolulu from Oakland or Long Beach or Seattle?
Anchorage?
Canada?

No more new destinations this year, and no ATL-JFK either. Look for FLL-OAK by December, however, and probably one or two either "connect the dot" routes, most likely involving FLL or LGB.

JetBlue need's to come to more locations in the midwest, such as Chicago or Detroit, or even smaller cities such as Ft. Wayne, IN and Grand Rapids, MI. I think they would find there place nicely in these communities plauged with nothing but major airlines (in most cases anyways, ATA flys to both of theese locations, but more LCC carriers would be nice).

MAH,
Neeleman has said that Jetblue would add one more new city this year. When did you hear otherwise?

Jetblue would be very welcome in GRR. We're dominated by NW.

OAK-SEA or LGB-SEA would be sweet. I love flying Alaska Airlines and Horizon Air on these routes but flying Jet Blue would be something new! I would love to watch TV on the flights.

Anybody know why they haven't started either of the two routes?

Nope not going to happen. Aloha Airlines has carved a VERY nice niche in the OAK-HNL market (and other OAK to Hawaii Routes) and there is NO way they would let someone else enter that market.

That being said however, Aloha and Jetblue COULD (I am purely speculating) launch a 'codeshare' of some sort. For example they could coordinate their schedules and allow people to buy tickets on each other carriers direct from JFK-HNL etc. I know LAS is a BIG vacation spot for Hawaiians and they could codeshare on those flights as well.

They should start flying more midwest cities. The yield premium is the highest in Detroit and the fourth highest in MSP.

Exactly. Chicago and Detroit have a LOT of air traffic, one being the largest hub and second largest hub for the world's largest airlines, and the other being the largest hub for NWA. It would really help in the Midwest market, that is completely and utterly dominated by NWA and UAL.

I think jetBlue will be introducing the JFK-RIC route. Now that Phillip Morris has moved many many employees to Virginia, this route will be utitlized very much. JFK is the number one destination out of KRIC. Also, there are no low-cost carriers at RIC yet, and jetBlue will revolutionize RIC. Southwest plans on coming to Ricmond, but not for a few years when their financial status tells them they can. I'm almost positive that this will happen, after all, he did have lunch with the Governor of Virginia and took a tour of Richmond International Airport.

It has been rumored for the past couple of months that JetBlue would be adding SJU-FLL, I wish we could see these 2 city pairs connected in what's left of the year.
Or will we see an increase in frequencies on the SJU-JFK flight which is already being operated 5 times a day.

Keep in mind the stage length of each flight. JB will try and fly long routes. Only when the RJs arrive will they start flying short distance.

The Manchester Union Leader recently reported that MHT was in discussions with Jet Blue about starting service from MHT. The article also indicated that Jet Blue was also in discussions with Massport about begining service from BOS. I can only speculate on which routes Jet Blue would fly from MHT, most likely MHT to JFK. The article also indicated that MHT was in dicussion with both American and Airtran about begining service from MHT. Presently SWA is the dominate carrier at MHT in terms of number of flights and passengers carried. SWA on September 10 is to begin nonstop service on the MHT-LAS route.

Mah,
From what I read, there will be one more city after San Diego, time will tell. Also, as of today JFK-SJU is being flown 6 times per day. I do not know for how long though.

The second daily SAN-JFK flight starts tomorrow. (7/14) After that we have no new routes, cities, or flights announced. I can only assume a big announcement is on the horizon.

Station manager for JetBlue in New Orleans said he expects a 2nd JFK nonstop by the end of the year. That would be good to see.

"JFK is the number one destination out of KRIC"

Are you sure it's JFK? I don't think there are any flights by anyone between JFK and Richmond, perhaps you meant NYC not specifically JFK?
