JetBlue: Big(ger) Plans At Boston?

I was checking out the flight tracker today at jetblue.com, and it seems JetBlue is using gates E1A, E1B, and E1C. With those three gates, they could probably handle about 30-40 flights/day. My question is: Is JetBlue planning on making a big operation out of BOS? I'm sure they don't need all three gates for the 13 flights they operate now (15 this winter). Also, I was also wondering whose gates these were before JetBlue got them.

Thanks!

From what I understand, Boston is supposed to be one of JetBlue's focus cities. I'm sure they are going to do a fairly good size expansion there. The EMB190's may fly out of BOS, I think. But don't quote me on that.. it's just what I understand. Perhaps an employee can shed some light.


Aiming High and going far..

From what I see in the computer in gate lists, Gates E1A and E1B are used the most and E1C is used for Irops and Aircraft that RON there...

I'm sure BOS will see even more aircraft soon, There are rumors of more aircraft orders and taking options that we had talked about...

I'd much rather see more aircraft in MCO - but if wishes were horses we'd all be ride'n...

Kepping my fingers crossed...

Personally, I think that jetBlue should start flying to Canada, YOW in particular. Now that would be FUN!

E1A and E1B used to be Northwests gate. we only use E1C for our LGB morning Depart, and our Night OAK dept. E1C is a common use gate the the airport uses for charter flight and things like that so its not souly ours.

Am I missing something?  Confused Are these the only 3 they use or are you sayin these are 3 EXTRA gates?

Because if it's the former, I'd say that's a tight schedule.



Listen Betty, don't start up with your 'White Zone' s*** again.

Nothing wrong with 30-40 flights out of 3 gates. JetBlue has low turn-around times and operates similarly at other airports - specifically FLL. Their crew is very dedicated to making sure everything goes out on-time. I'm not saying that it wouldn't be tight, but I don't think it would be a big issue.
