Jetblue is going to massively expand out of EWR they just got their 3rd gate at EWR and they have already secured the 4th gate for the 1st quarter of 06. This is going to be interesting as all the Gates are not together. The plan calls for a BLUECITY bigger then FLL!!! SO expect Transcons on Jetblue out of EWR Very Very Sooon!!!

Five gates does not a CITY make!
First , do you have some kind of link to this info? And don't you think calling five gates a city is a little silly?

If that gives B6 a city at EWR, then CO surely has an entire continent.

well if htey start adding transcons from EWR...they should be doing all sorts of fuel stops. Anyways, if they do, look for us to add some frequency as well, just as HP/TZ did, we should match them in every market.

Maybe will see EWR-OAK soon from both B6 and CO. Naturally, you would think CO would reopen EWR-OAK if B6 announces service on the same route.

People, People a bluecity is any city that Jetblue goes to!!! Even if they only have one flight a day to that city!!! And by the way I never said 5 Gates I said Jetblue will have 4 Gates at EWR. Surely Jetblue will prob. Have 40-60 flights a day out of EWR by next year but that is no where close to what Continental has. The EWR Market is huge and I believe that both Continental and Jetblue are going to do JUST FINE.

The best WN does with their gates when they really try is 10 flights per day from each gate, that's if they really try.

If/when B6 gets a 4th gate the best they could muster would be 40 flights per day, that's pushing it though and would probably be less.

Think of it this way, they started with 15 flights from two gates so 30 flights from four makes sense.

This may seem like a silly question but does anyone here know how much jetblue can expand operations out of EWR ? If Jetblue expands operation greatly out of EWR would they fly to cities that they currently serve out of JFK ?

With gate space being so tight in EWR that you needed all those gates in A which cities will most likely get reductions in service?

those were more seasonal services only like the SMF, CLE-SAN/SLC services, I imagine sooner or later, and maybe sooner if B6 does something we should see it again.

Well you wouldn't believe all the B6 tags that we see from JFK-IAH.......you cant say that we are losing customers on that route......we see all sorts of different airline tags on bags, so to make a statement like we seem to be losing customers rapidly is preposterous.

WN has 12 flights of a gate in some cities, but I do doubt they can get 15 flights a day out of 4 gates.

CO will fight, but B6 will lower the fares so much that it will create a huge amount of traffic, and there already is a massive amount of O&D from/to NYC. There should be enough traffic for both CO and B6, especially to the popular destinations like Florida where there is seemingly endless O&D.



Next flights: WN DSM-LAS-PHX, US PHX-SJD.

they have made a number of tech stops flying eastbound from the west coast.....and many of the cities you were looking at on UAL were being flown on 767 or 757 equipment, little bit of a difference there.

113 Falcon84 : Hello! And, as I said, it keeps a competitor from using it. And if the Port Authority doesn't mind them having it, why do you? You think CO should ju
114 Flightopsguy : The other factor in this equation is that the increased service brought by B9 and CO's response will make for ATC flow control to EWR almost every aft
115 Post contains images JerseyGuy : I didn't know that Air Bangladesh (B9) had launched new service between EWR and Florida
116 Post contains links and images Kahala777 : Never? Los Angeles-Narita? Check your facts! Error, my mistake, I forgave a foray to Delta Airlines 767-300. Delta is the one with widebodies in the
117 Falcon84 : Delta is the one losing money hand over foot; CO is the one, because it flies what makes sense, and not what a naive armchair CEO on a website says i
118 Kahala777 : Wasnt it Continental Airlines who lost about $100 million? Isnt it Continental Airliens that is attempting to ask for wage reductions? Isnt it Contin
119 CALMSP : Kahala777........what kind of comment are youmaking???? Did you not see we made money last quarter? We already gave our reductions. And only once. Eve
120 Slider : FYI- CO does have to maintain a frequency base on the A gates to keep them, whereas the other gates are on exclusive lease and not subject to those c
121 Post contains images Cory6188 : Okay, this definitely isn't the case. CO's fleet is the youngest out of all of the majors, and they're still almost perfectly immaculate. I just flew
122 Cory6188 : Yes, and it makes sense. HA is based out of HNL, they have a FF base in HNL, and they're known in HNL. It's not surprising that they're making money.
123 Crogalski : you made $60mill in 3 months, and then lost $100mill in the month after.
124 777gk : Kahala- I don't need to check my facts; Continental has NEVER flown LAX-NRT, end of story. The numbers are already above: between EWR/LGA/JFK, taken a
125 Cory6188 : I know that this is totally off-topic, but what is the deal with that? How far have they come to making an agreement?
126 SHUPirate1 : US Airways is no longer in bankruptcy either. They emerged on September 27, 2005, when the merger with America West officially closed.
127 Cory6188 : Sorry - I didn't realize that. Ever since this whole merger thing started, I haven't really been too sure about US's overall status. Thanks for clear
128 Kahala777 : In Continental Airlines defense, the tables are now turned and Delta is the one with more than management issues. That has never been in question. Fo
129 Airzim : CO never operated LAX-NRT nonstop, although Kahala may be confusing the HNL-NRT flight. Also 777gk, CO did serve LAX-PPT nonstop with 747's. It was af

131 777gk : If we operated LAX-PPT, it must have been brief; the only one I recall is HNL-PPT but since I was DC-10 crew around that time, you may be right. Also,
132 Post contains images Airzim : In fact I found an old routemap of the Pacific in 1989
133 777gk : Fair enough. Quite the operation we used to have- pass travel was always exciting!
134 Letsgetwet : KAHALA777 has finally agreed (on another thread) that Continental is the largest carrier in the largest O/D market in the US!
