Yep!! This is very good news for Song and expand more new international flight to NAS. IT make response with jetBlue is service to NAS goes on Nov 1, 2004. It is competitive with their flight. Yes, they already announcment for service from NAS today.

looks like B6 beat them to it. However, song does not have to apply for government approval (not saying that B6 won't recieve approval), so they could have just added it today or had it in mind for a while.
I think Song might be making a last attempt to fight B6.
Currently, DL does not operate JFK-NAS, but they do operate LGA-NAS, will that be canceled?

I love the thread title!
I might be a little bias - but I will attempt not to be. JetBlue did file its interest for authority to operate service to Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Mexico, Bahamas and Canada some time ago.
In all honesty, DL has been operating LGA-NAS with a 757 daily and will continue to do so PLUS a second weekend 757 in addition to new Song service for JFK - so naturally I think this is just a market evolution.
Incumbet DL (and US and AA - just entered nonstop NYC market), entrant JetBlue, response Song + additional mainline for competitive reasons.
Songs fares starting as low as $139... I believe JetBlue pricing would be a little lower.
