Beginning 5/17, JetBlue is opening up PDX. Good news for PDX, they've struggled to keep non-stop service to the east coast. Nice to see new service being added.

Haha, great minds think alike. I think PDX is a good addition, but I wonder if the SEA market can support so many flights, now that Delta has added service as well (soon to be switched over to Song, with even more capacity than the current 738s). Over the years, AA and UA have added and dropped JFK-SEA on and off...it seems to be a challenging market. It will be interesting to see whether JetBlue and Song will both be able to stimulate demand with their low fares and popular products, or if one will be forced "off the island," so to speak.

I wonder the same about the SEA-JFK market. This will be 2 daily for Jetblue, 3 for Delta/Song, and AA has it's 2 daily summer flights as well.

Then SEA-EWR you'll have 4 daily on CO and at least 2 on AS.

However.....way to go PDX. That flight will be very popular and I bet PDX sees more of Jetblue than SEA does once they see the market in PDX.

Great news for PDX! This will be a very successful flights for jetBlue.

In the future, American will probably eliminate its flights from New York to Seattle, effectively ceding all East Coast flying to Alaska. With one or two exceptions, AA simply isn't interested in competing in secondary transcon markets anymore.

With B6's recent expansion taking place at BOS, could BOS-PDX service not be too far behind?

Funny about the AA transcon, last night I had the joy of listening to an AA pilot whine and moan about AS flying SEA-DFW, after they entered the SEA-BOS, and SEA-ORD market, coming in on his beloved AA's turf. He was going on about how AA will be increasing services in SEA.

I wonder if this is his broken heart talking??

It was funny to listen to him. "How dare they fly to Dallas. arent we a code-share? Maybe we should start flying to ANC!!" I have so many comments to make.......

I haven't heard a thing about that. I will be flying into BOS on FL on March 11 (and then back to PHL on March 12) so I'll find out fairly quickly as towards whether FL will stay at Terminal D.

This is an interesting move for B6 to add another flight along with DL's huge song expansion. B6 does have one benefit though over song; they can connect people to upstate New York as well as florida. The prices from the west coast to smaller cities in New York are outrageous. 400 or 500 dollars might be as cheap as you can get to ROC or elsewhere without B6. My opinion is that the Song flights will stay empty because there isn't enough O/D to warrent that much service, and connections on song are limited. People would go on DL through a hub if they wanted to connect to a Song destination.

B6 has a following among college students and young people wanting to go to New York from SEA. The only thing that hurts them is the horrible timing of the red eye flight that doesn't make business flyers and others happy flying with B6.

AS and CO can do well also because in addition to O/D they have connection opportunities. AS can fly people to Alaska, Canada and around the Northwest, while CO goes to all over the east and to Europe. Both those carriers are solid. UA went from a 767 to a 757 to an A320 and then dropped it all together. They relied only on O/D since they had a presence but no hub at either location.

AA has consistently reduced service out of Seattle due to the ridiculously high airport fees. SEATAC is out of control and with PDX a short hop away, I expect seeing it keep growing as SEA loses more and more service.

I remember when you could see AA's entire fleet in SEA in a single day, over 20 daily flights, nowadays, all MD80 except for the one 757 to JFK. No more BOS flights, no more NRT and down to only 14 daily departures altogether.

wow...i'm excited about this news!!! Finally SEA won't be all alone on our route map!  Laugh out loud also to its great to hear that SEA FINALLY gets a daytime flight after the last few years of it only being a red eye! PDX will be a great destination for our crewmembers too since we have quite a few that live in the OR area...easier commute for them to get to JFK rather than driving all the way up to SEA or catching another airline to get to work.

Of course, for one redeye flight, they probably won't have their own gate anyway, no need to pay for 24 hours of gate space for only one flight.

Padcrasher, those flights are once a day, and you can already connect to DL's international network. You don't need 3 flights a day for international connections. The two 738s fill that job fine, and do not justify doubling capacity. I was just saying that B6 is in a better position to increase service, not that DL should cut service. B6's new afternoon flight from SEA-JFK is timed to connect to the last set of flights out of JFK in the day.

Either a port gate on D or they will use one of UA's gates at PDX, as I believe UA has a contract with B6 to provide ramp/mx service at some or all of their locations. B6 operates out of the north satellite in SEA.

I knew it! I started a thread awhile back that talked about Neeleman's plans to open a new red-eye city this year...well here it is! I'm sure it'll perform well and hopefully we'll see BOS and IAD service in the near future.

Also, FINALLY they're adding a second flight to SEA...the destination has basically been deprived of attention from JetBlue, but I guess they decided it's time to step up the competition -- especially after Song's announcement.

Best of luck to B6!
