Will Jetblue Look To Savannah (SAV)?

hey sports fans. the post about plattsburgh inspired this one. Do you think jetBlue will ever fly to Savannah, GA? The facilities here are excellent and I think the local community would welcome a change. Currently the only LCCs here are Airtran and Independence Air. The rest is legacy carrier stuff, who (at this time) do not seem to fly to NYC. Since B6 seems to dominate in Florida, moving up the coast seems to be a reasonable plan.


If it was said by us, then it must be true.

I think you might want to check your figures on that one. Between WN,DL,and AA it would seem that would be over 60% of the Florida traffic flying with them. Also do you remember B6's attempt at ATL? DL and FL 'joined forces' to drive B6 out of town by offering dirt cheap sales and other offers promoting DL and FL. B6 was gone after less than 6 months. I believe that B6 is going to tread very lightly if they get too close to ATL. Then again this is just one opinion.

Hold up one sec-- you said that SAV has no NYC service--- Delta Connection has three daily flights to LGA, and two to JFK all on the CRJ, while Continental Express flies three daily ERJ-145 flights to EWR. Thats eight daily flights into the NYC area. SAV only has about 45-50 daily departures last i knew of, and around 15 of those are FL and DL flights to ATL, so that means that around 25% of the non-ATL bound flights are headed to NYC.

That said i think B6 could make a go of SAV with the 190, maybe with two or three daily flights.



Go Blue!!

Yes, I remember jetBlue's half-hearted attempt at ATL...the problem was, it was a western-originating utilization run, which effectively meant the aircraft used on OAK/LGB-ATL would be out of position for an entire calendar day (flying, say, JFK-LGB-ATL-LGB-JFK), and was basically just a creative way of getting to their utilization strategy of seemingly having every plane they own flying a redeye! If they had tried JFK-ATL-JFK with any sort of frequency, the results might have been different.

I don't necessarily agree with this statement. Between CO, DL and AirTran, I think the NYC-ATL market is pretty much covered. JetBlue may serve Atlanta one day from JFK but it would only be a token service with a few flights a day - nothing like the hourly (or more) frequency DL offers. ATL also serves a lot of connection traffic from NYC, mostly to smaller destinations in the South as well as a few international destinations not served from directly from New York.

As for the LGB/OAK flights to ATL, this has been covered numerous times in here. I think it is fair to say one reason B6 pulled out was the lack of slots at LGB. There were simply better places to utilize the precious slots. Clearly the huge increase in flights by both DL and AirTran had an impact too - the latter probably came as something of a surprise as they only had DC-9 equipment at the time.

I would assume that SAV is one of a potential 100 US airports JetBlue could and may serve in the future. When or if they serve there is anybody's guess.



None shall pass!!!!

American didn't feel that way. That's why they now offer 5 flights a day from LGA.

That's what they should do. Lots of airlines, including legacy, have token service to other airlines major hubs. You think you will ever see UA offer hourly service from ORD to MIA?

US Airways Express also serves SAV-LGA on weekends for most of the year.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.

If this is true, i stand corrected. are these flights non-stop?

Where does WN fly to in florida? I am unfamiliar with the majority of WN's route system

Quoting DeltaGuy767 (Reply 3):

Dont think this is a problem. It is part of B6's buisness model to not fly the same routes its direct (LCC) competitors do, while it is ok to fly to the same destinations. If B6 was to fly to SAV, it should be ok, as long as it doesnt fly direct to ATL from SAV. ATL isn't a hub for B6, since B6 doesnt fly away to non hub (unless it is a connection) destinations, i think they will be ok. Agreed, a JFK-ATL on B6 would be a bad idea. Please fill me in if i am wrong.

I am working in the savannah area now and it would be great to get a cheap flight up to ROC (obviously not non-stop)  Smile

Yes all the flights are non-stop, DLConnection/ComAir 3x daily (CRJ) to LGA and 2x daily (CRJ) to JFK, the 3x daily (ERJ145) to EWR on CoEx and weekends on US Airways Express to LGA at least seasonally to LGA are ALL non-stop to the NY metropolitan area. SAV now also has three nonstops to DTW on NWAirlink (and seasonally a DC-9 went down once daily), they have 5-6 to IAD on Indy, and three to IAD on United Express. And now American Eagle also to ORD and DFW....

Incidentally United's service 3x daily to ORD will be seeing 70-seat regional jets soon also.....SAV is booming without me, but I'm happy to be gone- tough place to live.

Too bad I won't be in JAX in 2015 (hopefully). Oh well.. I can finally sleep at night knowing that B6 can take me anwhere I want.  Smile

And I think that Jetblue's goal of "every runway in the US by 2015" might be a little impractical. What about the the smaller airports? Like HDN? And what about like Vail and all those small airports? I find that a little hard to believe... we'll see...

MAH is simply poking fun at the fact that so many "When will JetBlue fly to ___?" and "JetBlue looking at ___" threads have been posted. However, everything is a rumor. No one knows anything about what JetBlue is going to do. Who knew that they would be serving 3 PR destinations? Who knew that they would start EWR and LGA service? Who knew that they would choose LGB and BOS as focus cities?

So, will JetBlue look to Savannah? Maybe. Maybe not. Maybe it'll be a huge focus city. Or maybe it'll have just one flight a day to Clute, Texas. There is no answer.

Most people on a.net hate JetBlue. Get used to it.

Just mouse over NK and it shows up. NK is Spirit Airlines and they seem right for the market and they are into Florida and Mid-Atlantic service. They already have DCA and MYR and ACY, so SAV seems right.
