Does anyone know if JetBlut is at all planning to fly to the midwest in the near future?

Thank you

Not for while from JetBlue to begin nonstop out of JFK and either way to the midwest city and you probably will see into the future. I'm pretty sure about hear rumors about more new routes.

I was thinking more of Chicago and the surrounding areas.

Thank you

Omaha... we've got serious business O&D here. Also, our only non-stops to the coast were on Midex and they are really slowing down. Now we have an occasional CO to EWR but that's about it.

Concordeloss: You may be in luck. I read an article on jeff neeleman (ceo of B6) this summer and he said that they are trying to get ORD.

Once they get the 190's we will probably start to see more midwest action.

N766UA, I don't think there are any definite dates for future expansion. As their quick entry and departue from ATL shows, B6 is very flexible and won't stick with a moneylosing station just for the sake of it.

I agree with Frontiers4ever. The -190s will allow them to fly east and west from whatever new Midwest cities.

Note though that B6 really is missing a geographical section. Just look at their route map, there is a huge whole in the Midwest. We will see expansion here soon.

They're going to have to get more room at JFK in the near future. Terminal 6 isn't that big, and I'm sure it's getting crowded. It's also the worst one at JFK in my opinion, and I'm glad they're going to replace it, but that won't be done for a few years. Or might we see another midwest focus city? Somehow I doubt it with ATA and Frontier in the area, but you never know....

when jetblue announced the order for the 100 erj-190s, the airline stated that these planes were to be used to supplement the a320s, as well as expand service to the midwest and northeast from the jfk hub. among the list of cities that were mentioned were: chicago, grand rapids, milwaukee, cleveland, detroit, st. louis, memphis, nashville...

i unfortunately cannot find this press release (actually, it may have been a newspaper article and not a press release), but i do recall that the airline stated they were interested in these cities. obviously, no formal announcements have been made.

If they can make SLC work, I don't see why they couldn't pull-off MSP or MKE.  Smile

JetBlue would like to fly to ORD, but they want at least 4, if not 5 gates. ORD doesn't have that many open gates, unless United gives some back to the airport.

I just wonder if JetBlue would be getting into a market that is already saturated. AA and UA already fly hourly to LGA. UA and AA also fly to EWR and HPN. AA flies to SMR. UA flies to JFK. WN flies to ISP from MDW. ATA flies MDW to LGA, as well as AA. DL still has one ORD-JFK flight, connecting with its European departures and arrivals.

If an airline starts a new route, it wants to create traffic, and not merely take traffic from another carrier. It seems to me that there isn't a lot of traffic left to create. Supposedly, New York metro-Chicago metro is the most heavily travelled route in the world.

Considering that DL ran JetBlue out of ATL, I could see AA and UA trying to do the same at ORD. If JetBlue does start ORD-JFK, AA will also start service on that route, connecting with its European, Carribean, and Latin American departures and arrivals.

Does anyone remember what B6's start-up cities were? What did that very first route map look like in February 2000?

Thanks in advance...

I know we were seriously looking at Chicago but like CKFRED said ORD doesn't have much for gates. As for the other midwest cities, once the 190s comeonline i think you'll start seeing a lot more point to point service and less of the hub and spoke.
