"United has begun charging passengers $2 for each checked bag at its major hub airports including Washington's Dulles International, Chicago O'Hare and Denver International."

Is that for curb side checkin, or for actual checkin?

All these little nickle and dime charges the legacies are pulling are not going to be good for publicity.
Unless Southwest and the others join them in these charges, I would expect some retaliation as other airlines grow their business.

Quoting the JetBlue section of the article, "The airline is also considering adding more longer-haul flights, trips of about 2,000 miles, that could connect the East Coast to many Midwestern destinations".

...last I checked, the Midwest was not 2000 miles from the East coast. By road:
OMA-MIA: 1700mi
IND-BOS: 1000mi
STL-EWR: 950mi
MCI-PHL: 1150mi

If they can turn a profit with many of those $25 fares, they can manage my business right now. I don't think they will though.

I believe JBLU could open Albuquerque, San Antonio, El Paso, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Des Moines, Omaha, Wichita. Or you may see them open Las Vegas big time with many non-stops from smaller cities in the midwest. In any case, the schedules will probably be very limited with two to three flts per day. Jetblue is not afraid to open up cities with a limited amount of flts per their past history.

Well, forget about new cities, what about new pairs? Expansion in BOS to the west? How about a BOS-PHX? Or more JFK-PHX besides the redeye. I'm sure the E190s will allow them to grow into markets that the 320 would've been too expensive to operate in. Maybe some west coast expansion, i.e. LGB-PHX/LAS/SEA or the like.

Curbside check-in. Inside, lobby check-in for bags is (of course) still free. AA and a few other airlines if I remember correctly have followed in instituting the $2 charge for each curbside checked bag as well. Only UA has also upgraded the system to where Skycaps can now issue boarding passes, standby cards, etc. - in the past they have not been able to do so, only to issue bag tags.

B6 already serves LAS with 3x-6x to JFK (depending on season), 2x-3x to LGB (depending on season) and 1x to BOS.

I too expect more than 8 new cities this year. I would be willing to bet that there will be some major announcements about new Florida cities very soon.

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

I'm aware that they already serve them, but it is on a limited schedule. I was referring to the 190 and a spiderweb route system from LAS similar to SWA, but opening cities that WN ignores. LAS is the perfect market to run the 190 on 4 hr redeyes within range to the East, and add cities like Akron, Flint, Dayton, Memphis, Cincinatti, and Milwaukee.

Sarasota and Jax may see service this year, but I think they are rethinking going into MIA due to cost. PBI seems to be on a steep growth track, so I see them catching most of the growth to S. Florida until or when Ft. Lauderdale is ever capable of handling more growth.

After the JFK-NRT B744 got pulled out of service, isn't all DC-9s from MSP and DTW?

And go up against Alleigent? I think that will be a good match JB vs. G6. But some of those smaller routes can't support 2 carriers in the case of G6/HP/HPX, G6/NW or G6/JB.

The times I've been there have all been on half-empty DC9's, I doubt an E190 will do much better. In the context of getting a job though, I wish you luck.

Maybe on NW to DTW/MSP, but other carriers are doing great- the EWR/LGA flights are always "nearly full"

Ding ding ding. I would call this one a winner.

With the collapse of DH, I would expect DTW and Charlotte. I'm also thinking the RJ hubs are pretty vulnerable right now. I would also expect much more service out of IAD. I hope for MSP and JAX, but that is only a hope at this point.

40 Asteriskceo : We won't see the E190s at LGB.
