Is JetBlue Going To Expand SEA?

I've recently noticed that JetBlue's JFK-SEA flights have been doing well. I quick look at their last minute fares on jetblue.com shows that their flights go out pretty full (I would guess above 80% LF...I'm sure a B6 employee could give the real figure), but they only have one flight in/out of the market.

It seems that SEA really isn't a hub for any airline except AS, and AS only has very limited service to the East Coast. My question is: Why doesn't B6 expand their SEA operations? I bet they could run a 2nd JFK successfully, and can even perform well to BOS, IAD, and FLL. Is there not enough gate space or something? It looks like SEA is a bit of an underserved market - it's a huge city and if more seats are available, I would think that they'd be able to be filled up easily.

Your thoughts...

Most people on a.net hate JetBlue. Get used to it.

hopefully we'll be able to expand into SEA more...at least a daytime flight between JFK-SEA. hell, DEN has always been just the one flight and it was a red-eye. just this year we finally added a daytime flight. hopefully this coming year instead of adding SO many new destinations we focus on connecting the dots. and yes...the loads to/from SEA have been doing very well...the lowest LF i saw in the last cpl wks was about 120(ish)... but mostly full the rest of the time.

According to David Neeleman at a meeting recently, SEA ONT SJC SMF will all get a second daily round trip seasonally, starting in Spring '05. If they perform well, they'll be year round.

I dont know why they havent done a second SEA yet, as they are consistently full.

Leneld - take a deep breath and repeat after me:

Portland will eventually get more jet service....Portland will eventually get more jet service...Portland will eventually get more jet service...

Repeat as needed.  Big grin
