Quoting FA4B6 (Thread starter): • JetBlue celebrates the opening of the new 11 gate terminal at BOS. Ribbon cutting ceremony at 0930 in Terminal C
I am a little confused.....how is Terminal C new? Did they close it and renovate it or something? Also, does this mean that all 11 gates are now for JetBlue? I didn't realize they had that large of an operation at BOS already?

Well Terminal C isn't new, but to us it's new. And yes, we are renovating .. we're investing $9 million worth.
"New York, NY (February 2, 2005) -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) today announced it has reached an agreement to lease the long-term use of the 11-gate Terminal C, Pier C facility at Boston's Logan International Airport subject to Massport Board approval and execution of definitive documentation.
Beginning this May, the carrier expects to occupy five gates in Terminal C as well as 14 ticket counter positions. Starting in 2006, JetBlue will continue its growth in Terminal C by adding one gate every six months over the next three years. The carrier currently occupies two gates at Logan's Terminal E.
Similar to the carrier's successful Terminal 6 project at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport, JetBlue will invest over $9 million improving its new Terminal C location in Boston with facilities and concessions its customers have come to expect.
With JetBlue's current schedule, plus a recently announced west coast expansion, the carrier offers 19 daily flights from Boston with nonstop service to Oakland, Long Beach, CA; Denver, CO; Fort Lauderdale, Tampa, Fort Myers and Orlando, FL. The carrier recently announced plans to add new daily nonstop service from Boston to Las Vegas, NV and San Jose, CA effective May 3."

I think he meant 'new for jetBlue'... I'm sure the terminal is being somewhat modified or slightly renovated - perhaps changing of signage, carpeting, and fixtures. I believe we're immediately taking over three or four gates in TC with an additional gate being taken over something like one gate every six months... I believe BOS is going to be an operation very similar to that outta JFK or us...

May will be a big month for expansion and better facilities in BOS. though i'm not planning on working BOS flts anytime soon so it will be nice once i finally get back there to see how the new terminal looks.
also on a side note...heard on the rumor mill that we'll be announcing another new city in May. wonder where it will be. and sorry for the E190 fans...i'm sure its for the A320. fly safe all!

Apparently B6FA4ever, it's a west coast city. I've had Planning Dept. people on my flights lately to OAK, a lot. Something tells me it's going to be RNO, but that's just my guess.
Also, whatever happened to the rumor floating around on here about Ponce, PR?

You forgot to mention the potential Song impact. I believe Song starts its frequent (7x daily) JFK to LAX, plus a host of flights JFK to SFO. Will be interesting to see what happens between Jet Blue and Song, in addition to AA and UA on the transcons.
