Does anyone know when jetblue eliminated their morning flights from JFK-ONT and ONT-JFK? Their schedule now is 8:30PM departure from JFK and 12:30AM from ONT. Total joke. Just what everyone wants......late arrival and redeye coming home.

ONT is a joke. It is far from the population center and even further from the business center of Los Angeles. That is why B6 moved into BUR. Demand at ONT is limited and LAWA cannot press B6 to serve it since they do not fly to LAX.
The NIMBYs are forcing the politicans to back a "regional plan" which mostly involves preventing any improvements at LAX and if that fails, the plan calls for removing gates at LAX. ONT is expected to pick up the slack because LGB and SNA are capped and BUR has night restrictions and a tiny terminal. The only thing that will send passengers to ONT is much lower fares than LAX, BUR, SNA or LGB.

ONT is the closest airport to San Bernardino County and there are tons of people living there and everyday I arrive or depart from ONT, there seem to be more and more people passing through the airport.

Quoting Laxintl (Reply 6): The Inland Empire (San Bernardina & Riverside Counties) is the fastest growing region in California.
As years pass, Ontario will continue to see its traffic increase and is perfectly located to capture the regions economic and population growth.
I was in the ONT area a couple of years ago and couldn't believe the amount of development. Huge industrial buildings practically as far as the eye could see. It certainly isn't some backwater.
