What are some of the bets on cities JetBlue will serve with their new RJ's? It was mentioned here at GSP that we would be one of the cities when the RJ order was announced, but who knows? Anyone have any concrete info??

ERJ170: Thank you for correcting him before he gets flamed by the E190/170 fans! Though this topic seems to come up every month! But I'll give it a chance since the search option stinks on A.net
707guy: Is B6 getting the E170? From my understanding (which can be corrected) they are only getting the E190. Cleveland does seem to be a likely choice for a E190, though it may be lost to CAK with the way things run in NE Ohio lately.

Quoting 707guy (Reply 5): Yeah - E170/E190 whatever it takes.... Smile I couldn't remember which one they ordered. The pilot I talked to said that when they "get the RJ's" they'll be coming to Cleveland.
To clarify.. jetBlue is getting the Embraer EMB190XR jets.. supposedly arriving end of 3rd to 4th quarter...

Now, I will give 10 guesses for new E90 destinations not currently served...
RIC, RDU, ORF, JAX, PHL, MHT, BWI, CLT, BDL, BNA
Interesting guesses, ERJ170. I'm not sure I agree with PHL and MHT as these are already highly active WN stations. PHL is obviously a "hub" type focus city for Southwest and MHT is arguably too close to Boston (where B6 is already).
I'd add Portland, Maine to the list though. And perhaps some more midwest cities... it is my understanding that their E190s will have quite a range (I'm not sure about BOI-JFK though!). Certainly anywhere east of the Missouri River could be a consideration!

Quoting Luv2fly (Reply 9): CAK would not only draw from CLE it would also draw from PIT
According to Mapquest,
Pitts. to CAK: Total Est. Time: 1 hour, 59 minutes Total Est. Distance: 119.17 miles
Pitts. to CLE: Total Est. Time: 2 hours, 10 minutes Total Est. Distance: 134.61 miles
11 min. isn't really that much time. CLE could draw from PIT just much as CAK. Plus, PIT could eventually have it's own B6 service, as could CMH. It wouldn't be wise for an airline to bank on drawing pax form other areas, when they might just be drawing from themselves in the near future.
Of larger concern is what kind of deal CAK will offer B6, and will CLE even come close to matching it.

I'd look for the smaller cities in FL, and the cities in the N.E. with little LCC service. So id say JAX, DAB, SRQ, SAV, MYR, PWM, and ill say BTV gets the 190's in exchange for frequency. Thats my pick for round 1.
Experience is what you get when what you thought would work out didn't!

In the Boston Globe after Jetblue announced a major expansion of flights from Boston to the westcoast. The article mentioned that Jetblue would be using their E190's Bos to JFK and possibily MHT JFK as well. However I agree that PVM would be an excellent E190 route for Jetblue. I wonder if they would add additional flights between BTV and JFK with the E190's?

Although not likely any time soon, the E170 would be just the right tool should jetBlue decide to attack the network carriers on all fronts. The E190 itself is a move away from the "cherry picking" model, the E170 would be the next step if B6 wants to become a "NG legacy" carrier - a company that does what all the others are failing so miserably at.

A higher up at work was telling me how the state can't wait for us to leave the gates that we currently hold on the C pier in order for B6 to possibly begin flight to BWI. The feeling that I got from them was that because of that we'd be holding on to them until it was no longer economically viable.
United 717 heavy, you're facing the wrong way. Any chance you can powerback to get off of my deice pad?
I didn't realize B6 pilots were involved in route selection or marketing. In my experience, any time you hear a crewmember telling you where the airline will be flying to next, it's usually the place theyd like to see the airline fly to. Very rarely does it ever have any credibility.
FL has 3x daily CAK-LGA service, who would want to fly to JFK? CLE is going to protect CO at all costs, why would they let B6 in to hurt the CLE-EWR and CLE-LGA monopolies that CO enjoys? Unless the powers that be at CLE suddenly see the light, there's no credible reason to think B6 will be coming in any time soon.
: AUS and SAT are also said to be near the very top of the list.
: PWM will be getting the E-190s. not sure when but fairly soon once the new jets come online. PWM would also benefit with the JETBLUE A-320 as well. BT
: Everyone seems to be focusing on routes out of JFK, what about some routes out of LGB?
: As far as I know, LGB is slot restricted and full.. therefore, no new LGB unless some other flights are exchanged.. same with BUR, ONT.. If anything,
: And before anyone else says it, I will clarify... ERJ170 should be referred to as EJ170. -Mike
: I know.. I wanted to be renamed EMB170 but I would have to cancel this account and open another one.. and everyone already loves/hates me as ERJ170..
: If anything, I would say "how about some routes out of OAK".. Sorry, ERJ170 - I'm not trying to pick on you. I believe JetBlue had made it known that
: No worries RichieRich.. I wasn't stating any notions of E190 based out of OAK (although there probably will be some at some point I believe).. What I
: You mean 22? As far as CLE, I actually think it's a good possibility. We have alot more potential for a New York route with people connecting than CA
: TOLtommy, Your words are so true, so true. Everyone heards a employee say something and takes it for the truth. Seriously, we discuss this on a weekly
: Well i want to make some guesses too YUL YYZ ORD JAX BNA DFW IAH DTW CMH IAD (from JFK) TWA902
: MHT will not happen seeing as there is no space right now gate wise, the only way you'd see B6 there is if US or UA went under and WN did not take all
: SYR will be one of the first, I believe. SYR has performed well, but we'd be much better off with 6x E190 rather than 3x A320. Also, don't forget that
