I've been doing some thinking, and I just can't come up with an answer: Why doesn't JetBlue fly BOS-Fort Myers (RSW) and BOS-PBI (West Palm Beach)? Florida is a VERY big destination for Bostonians, and therefore, I would think that these routes would be very popular for JetBlue.
Just another thing: How's B6 doing currently on their BOS-Florida flights? I'd assume they're doing well as they'll be adding a 5th MCO and 3rd FLL in November.

That's true. DLX always served RSW nonstop from BOS, but never from JFK. I always wondered what was the strong demand to RSW, but it works for them.
As for AA to FL, why don't they have a bigger presence in the NY-FL market. I know they serve MIA from LGA, JFK, and EWR but other than that, they do LGA-MCO/PBI/FLL. What happened to all the JFK-FL routes they inherited from TWA? And why no EWR-FL routes?
I know they flew the JFK-MCO route for a while. Even upgraded it to 757s--then it was gone.

Song's loads on BOS-PBI flights are extremely high. JetBlue would do well on the route, however, FLL is their focus city. They mistakenly believe that there is a high volume of people in palm beach county that love B6 sooo much that we'd be willing to drive to FLL to fly to BOS instead of flying Song (or AA during the season). it's the same reason we don't see an IAD-PBI or LGB-PBI flight on B6 even though there's no question it would perform very well.

I think, and this is just from observation, that Bostonians tend to flock to the Gulf Coast of Florida while New Yorkers tend to Flock to the Atlantic Coast of Florida. Fort Myers is huge with Bostonians and New Englanders in general. The Red Sox have their Spring Training there. Can't blame them, the last person I wanna see when I go on vacation is a New Yorker

probably one thing i can think of why we havn't started more flights from BOS is because of lack of airplanes. because we start new routes where we see the most profitability and as you all know we focus more on trans-con flts. I'm sure once we get maybe another gate in BOS and more planes you'll see more destinations out of BOS! See you in the skies
