Anyone else catch the little boo-boo when someone redrew the map? Looks like BOS-ONT is a new route instead of BOS-SJC  Wink.

http://www.jetblue.com/travelinfo/routemap.html

Also, am I the only one that thinks B6 is in need of an interactive route map?

And yes, I'm incredibly bored.

If you follow the nearly-invisible arrows from the destination names, you'll see that the route is out of SJC.

Unless they've fixed it since your wrote your post it looks correct to me. If you see the little flags next to the dots with the city names on them the orange line actually does go from SJC to BOS.

Yes, at this point they do need an interactive route map.

So many transcons it's nearly illegible.

Yea they put those lines in when they made the boxes around their names many months ago. I was confused when I first saw it back in August for the first time.

some one should write to them and say that their route map is illegible and impossible to read. To many lines. I might have to go to the speak up column and say something.

I'm sure the folks in Ontario would love to see service to BOS.

I didn't know they flew to Burbank! Must have been studying when that thread was up...

It seems everytime I blink, they fly some new route!

Go B6!

I read the map as a new route from BOS to ONT too! Doesn't help that the ONT dot is poorly placed, too - ONT is well to the east of LGB, not directly above it.

JetBlue definitely needs to get an interactive route map - add a couple more routes and this thing will be absolutely useless.

I'm sure ONT-BOS will happen soon I hope ... I think with the new gates, BOS will mimic a lot of what routes we fly from JFK.

PLEASE DO!! I wish everyone would. I know that they are working on it, but even WN and FL have interactive route maps. I especially love FL's, I hope we do something similar.

I can't wait for the 190's to come because I am sure you'll see service to your airport *cough* RDU *cough* soon. RDU, CLT, RIC, etc i'm sure will all see 190 service.

 alert I have emailed B6 about that route map 3 or 4 times.. they never write me back and have yet to do anything about it.. Do I need to travel to Forest Hills or whatever the hell name of that place is? It is beyond attrocious! <-- how do you spell that?

Anyway, I believe B6 would be most beneficial with an interactive map also.. much like F9 has.. It would be soooo much more user friendly.. and ain't that their stichk?  boxedin

Ontario is a province in Canada .. a province is like what we call a state but many people make that mistake.

The province of Ontario is huge, maybe even bigger then the size of California itself!

It seems to me that B6 has forgotten many middle america cities? Wouldn't they pick up more customers if they began service at airports other than those located along the coasts of the country? Why are they avoiding the midwest so much. I, who live in Detroit, did not hear of jetblue until last summer when there was a news article about them (I just recently found this site). Denver is the closest city to middle america with B6 service. Is B6 considering adding service to places like Chicago, DTW, MSP, IND, STL, PIT, or any other major midwestern city? How can an airline not service the second largest airport in passenger traffic in the country?

When we take delivery of the 100 seat Embraer 190's, I'm sure you'll see service to the midwest on B6. Right now we're focusing on NY-Florda/CA & BOS and markets that will utilize our aircraft most. East-West coast flying accomplishes that. Originally, the west coast cities were RON relievers ... too many aircrafts were RON'ing at JFK and so they starting sending the aircrafts out. Might as well send em somewhere overnight, get them back at 6-7AM .. and then send them to Florida and Upstate NY all day. Great idea, and it proved to be very successful for us.

As we grow, we'll find better ways to use our aircraft and that will include service to the major midwestern cities.

I've been e-mailing jetBlue for ages with comments about the route map. I've done it at least 5 times this year. Usually they write back an email. But concerning the route map, they haven't written anything. It is seriously impossible to read.

I've done the same with NW. I even called them. They list that they don't fly to Russia, but they are exclusive partners with KLM, and I have flown this route. I even called them to tell them of the mistake. They said they would fix it, but they haven't. This is concerning NWA.com route map and does affect that of skyteam.

ERJ170 and AEROFLOT777...try sending an email to the folks who maintain the webpage...not the airline. Jetblue doesn't have a whole lot of control over the webpage itself.

I had a similar problem with Allegiant Air once when they had outdated material about their inflight service.

So, see if you can figure out who controls the webpage...if it's not B6.

I totally agree that they need to have a interactive route map...kind of like Air Tran's route map.

I am sure it will be fixed any day now. AirTran and Frontier have both recently changed to interactive (finally).

ALSO...no one noticed a BIG change from a couple of weeks ago: BOSTON IS NOW LABELED AN OFFICIAL FOCUS CITY!!!  Smile

Now just imagine how hairy that non-interactive map would get when they add PHL  Wink

Yeah, I was just going to say. BOS has now been placed with JFK and LGB a focus city. Any chance that they'll open a BOS crew base?
