Since JFK-Nassau Starts tomorrow, A new city should be announced soon. Any Guesses?

I hope they open ATL back, but try a JFK-ATL. I was dumbfounded why they didn't do it last time

I wonder if the new cit(ies) to be announced wouldn't be the E190 cit(ies)? Perhaps a December/January announcement? This would give them at least 4-6 good months of booking, or is that too much?

ATL is NOT coming back.

I will place my bets on SAT for two reasons:
A. Very little SAT-NYC competition
B. B6 has expressed a decent amount of interest in SAT

Speaking of B6.. it is time for them to redo that route map.. it is getting a bit complicated... too many lines going too many places... time to pull a HP or WN and get the interactive kind..

Even if B6 wanted to come to EWR, where would they get the gates from? CO snatched up every available gate in Terminal A in order to prevent new entrants from coming in (and to provide business pax with quick access to the gates), and everywhere else is maxxed out.

Please no airline is going to announce a city 4 to 6 months out, to let the competition gobble up the market share. I would be surprised if they announced anything before March of 2005

The Canadian cities and MHT and a few others have been held to the side for the entry of the E-190's. I do wish for MCO-LGB tho.

i think LGB-MCO would be a good addition to our route map. we actually have quite a few PAX who connect in JFK from OAK/LGB to MCO and having a one-stop/non-stop to MCO through LGB would be so much more convenient for the pax.

and in regards to the 190's new cities...just like Luv2fly said...no airline would announce a new city more than 6 months in advance. when we announced service to PHX, it was less than 3 months from the announcement to the launch flight.

i'd say for '05 just add a cpl new cities and focus MORE on connecting the dots and adding the frequencies (as we've seen already for spring w/ addt'l ONT and MSY flights from JFK and more BOS-LGB/OAK)!

I doubt that MHT will see B6 for a long time simply because of the very strong presence of WN there. WN leases 6 out of 17 gates at MHT, and all gates are currently leased by other airlines. Now, if one of the airlines serving MHT went belly-up (i.e. US DL or DH), then I could see the possibility of B6 coming in and taking the vacant gates. Then again, there is no MHT-JFK service... The only NY area service is CO to EWR and DL and US to LGA and service to JFK would offer connecting opportunities. Maybe it is a possibility in the distant future for a small presence there like a few JFK flights daily when gate space becomes available. I suppose they could share a gate with another airline, but I'm not sure of what gates are underused.

If I seem scatterbrained, you'll have to excuse me, I'm taking a break from writing a long paper and my brain is a little fried right now.

From a friend whose father is a B6 pilot...

CLT WILL be a new route city once the E-190s come full swing.

The only question is WHEN CLT will be opened by B6



If landing is about "kissing" the ground, you just about raped it.

Is the ISP still a roomer??
I don't think they will just start service to FLL. It's kind of against their concept to serve ISP with only one route. FLL nor ISP is a hub or focus city for them. I could see them taking over the AA gates. The only thing is that they do not have jetways. There is also a shortage of gate space- especially if they are going to load an A320!
I think if the do ISP, it will be ISP- FLL and MCO at least.
They also stated a while ago that the Embraers will replace the A320s so that they can use the A320s on other routes that need the longer range A/C.

According to JetBlue's CEO, they'll only be opening 2 new 320 stations this year before the 190's come in. My guesses are:

JFK-PDX
JFK-MIA

I said PDX b/c there is very little if any competition on the route, and JetBlue could get some excellent yields out of there. I said MIA b/c there is also not too much competition on that direct route (only one airline serves it - AA), and JetBlue has been doing very well on both JFK-FLL and LGA-FLL.

On the other hand, I really would not be surprised to see B6 starting ISP-FLL and ISP-MCO. Both routes do excellently out of JFK and I'm sure JetBlue would like to capture some traffic out on the Eastern/Suffolk County side of the island.

With that, I think B6's first E190 destination will be Richmond followed by GSO or JAX, followed by BOS-Upstate NY.

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

I wish for LAX....They serve ONT- but it caters more to the Inland Empire/Riverside areas. LGB is slot restricted, and people from as far as San Diego (even though B6 flies to SAN) drive to LAX just to fly domestically. The benefits of flying from LAX would be that it's closer to a larger population of people than ONT .... and gates would not be hard to find. Of course, trying to obtain many gates at once probably wont be possible, finding one or two to use isn't too hard. The terminal I work in has several periods in a day where it's absolutely silent and the gates are not occupied.

Cheers!

Norfolk, VA (ORF) or Newport News, VA (PHF), since they both serve the same metro area. There's competition from AE, FL, and WN to cities including BOS, JFK, LGA, MCO, and LAS. I know they would instantaneously become my preferred airline, as I fly home to MCO often, from PHF and ORF. I'd even take a connection thru BOS or JFK to get to Florida.
