The B6 topic started made me think (Doesn't happen often). Where do you think B6 will fy to next from OAK? They seemed they were going to make a small hub from OAK. Have they trashed those plans so they don't step on WN's toes till as late as possible?

Just from my observations at OAK, I don't think the airport has a whole lot of room left to expand until the T2 expansion is complete and WN moves out of T1. However, I had heard in earlier discussions of additional Boston service and maybe a FLL flight. Also, did B6 add another LGB-OAK flight?

Fort Lauderdale is the most likely one. FLL-OAK has been talked about for years now. I've also been hearing that they are looking at OAK-CUN. jetBlue definitley would like to fly to Cancun, but since two US carriers fly FLL-CUN (US and NK) and NYC-CUN (AA and CO), jetBlue cannot fly to Cancun from either market.

Mexicana and North American will soon start flying between OAK and CUN. Well, NA already does with Suntrips.

Correct. OAK has zero space for any airline. However, I can imagine that there will be a big fight between the other airlines for the T1 gates WN vacates.

I'm hoping HP gets another gate or two.

JetBlue is maxed out at OAK with two gates, 9 and 9A. I haven't heard of any serious plans but would guess OAK-FLL is a possibility.

is there really that much a market for non stop service from OAK to Florida?

I don't think there is much of a demand from Florida to Oakland but there may be a demand to the city across the bay, San Francisco. B6 actually advertises its' service into San Francisco with (Oakland)

Yes.

They may be higher yielding, but that doesn't matter. Besides, DCA-OAK can't be flown without beyond perimter slots.

Well yea. Higher yields = more $$ and that is what matters, right?

It's an important factor, but still, this is jetBlue, an LCC. The cost associated with opening and operating a station in ANC for an OAK-ANC flight would be ridiculous, and not justified.

For jetBlue, the money is in Florida. That's where most of their revenue comes from.
