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.

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.

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.

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.
