May 3rd is a busy day for the folks at JetBlue:

• JetBlue celebrates the opening of the new 11 gate terminal at BOS. Ribbon cutting ceremony at 0930 in Terminal C

• Press conference at McCarran International Airport to commemorate the new LAS-BOS service, as well as to celebrate B6's new home at Gate D-16

• Press conference at Mineta San Jose International Airport to commemorate the new SJC-BOS service

• JetBlue also begins IAD-SAN

May will also be a great month for JetBlue as we welcome our 30th and 31st destinations, PDX and BUR which start May 17 and May 24th respectively.

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?

Make sure you bring a HUGE flashlight. You'll only see it there from 11pm to 12am, at least for now.

Well Terminal C isn't new, but to us it's new. And yes, we are renovating .. we're investing $9 million worth.

Here's from the press release:

http://www.jetblue.com/learnmore/pressDetail.asp?newsId=297

"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."

Maybe by 2006 PDX and PHX will get second flights .. and being as the second SEA is going to be seasonal, maybe 2006 SEA will get their second flight back as well

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...

That's what I'm talking about, Erik.. can we get some destinations? I mean, it's less than 6 months to launch.. shouldn't they be throwing some out by now.. dang! Some people are impatient and stuff... and I really hate to wait too!

The B6 manager in MSY says B6 will start two daily 190 flights between BOS and MSY once the 190's come online. I will be looking forward to that to say the least.

Maybe after the get the planes and stuff they do tell where they´ll fly.
Think 6 months is way too much, and give others a hint of where U´ll be going to, but it´s just a guess.

a question, are B6 pilots already training for the E-190?
How long after beeing delivered a plane is ready to be flying on routes?

thx

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!

Well, Neeleman has said hes interested in MHT-JFK, and some local newspapers had reported not to long ago that the MHT airport director had been in talks with B6.

the only problem i see is that theres no free gates at MHT unless they can share one with another airline.

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?

Cant't wait to see what it is!

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.

I believe that they will be up to 7x daily JFK to LAX and 5x daily to SFO. Service starts in May and them ramps up throughout the Summer.

I like B6 as much as the next guy, but getting from OAK to SF is a hassle. Perhaps the Song service will affect UA, AA, and CO more. Will be interesting to see.
