Jetblue To LAY Out Growth For 2007 Tomorrow

Neeleman will give a synopsis of the growth plan for 2007 at the cc tomorrow. On tap are 14 more cities for 2007. It will be interesting to see how this will unfold and just what focus cities will grow.

BOS, JFK, and MCO headline my list of stations that will receive the majority of growth. STL will probably be named the midwest hub as they try and connect the East with the West for the 190s. I believe most of the new 190 cities will consist of small to midsized markets along the East Coast and Midwest. Look for MCO to be the big growth catalyst.

If they are going to open 14 new cities next year, when are they going to start connecting the dots more? I am hoping that they start connecting the dots out here on the west coast!? I travel to SMF/OAK every other month and would love to do that trip on B6, even though after 4 flights I get a free one on WN.

Can't wait for the webcast tomorrow, even though I have to go to class I do have a few breaks that I can listen in on.

Riddle me crazy.. but I am thinking the following are just snippets of what could possibly happen..

Opening of at least SAV, MCI, and ORF (why am I thinking OKC?)
STL mini-hub creation with flights to JFK, BOS, MCO, OAK
Additional destinations from CUN or SJU, MSY, RDU, CLT, CMH, OAK, AUS.. etc..
More international flights to MBJ, Cayman, YYZ or YUL, STT

Like I said.. call me crazy.. but that's what my 8-ball is showing me..

I'm hoping for DAB-JFK, and SYR-FLL. As for new cities, I'd love to see STL on the map (and I'd love to see it be a BIG station, but we'll just have to wait and see).

At some point I expect B6 to launch flights from Atlantic City and or Trenton Mercer to serve both the Philadelphia and New Jersey markets, especially given the dominance and head start WN has in Philadelphia and the difficulty B6 has experienced at EWR.

Atlantic City and or Trenton Mercer gives B6 the ability to serve the New Jersey and Philadelphia markets without competing head to head with WN, US at PHL and CO at EWR.

I don't see TTN happening-too many NIMBY's in Princeton, West Windsor, Yardley, etc.

ACY would be good as Spirit's fares are very high.

What's the source for this? Also, why would groowth plans for 2007 be announced (to the public) in 3rd qtr. 2006?

IMO, 2007 will be a much quieter year than 2006. I think there will be a maximum of 10 new cities (although I may very well be wrong.) I just don't see where they can grow especially with the new T5 still being constructed. Once T5 opens, then therre will once again be a huge growth especially at JFK.

For 2007, I would say MSP, STL, ABQ and DAB. In terms of connecting the dots, maybe BUF-FLL, BOS-MSY, BOS-CLT, BOS-HOU.

Remember, not all growth means new cities or connecting the dots. I would say jetBlue has something up its sleeve regarding an international alliance with a foreign airline or 2 for interlining.

Also, from a VERY reliable source: look for the ability to view seat maps before purchase online (will first be introduced for TrueBlue members only)!!

Out of curiosity, does anyone know if B6 has a static route map, or if an enthusiast has put one together? I can sorta get an idea of their network by playing around with their Flash map on their website, but I'd like to see the whole thing in one place, if such a beast exists.

Edit: Actually, nevermind, that may be a dumb question. Looking some more at the Flash route map, it looks like all their flights pass through one of the "key cities." Is this correct? For some reason, I was under the impression that B6 did more point-to-point flying.

That seems like a lot to me. I'd expect considerably less than that but I am guessing.

I think they have 21 gates now and can run up to 185 flts per day. Also, I believe they have use of 4 other gates for international arrivals.

If they open up a mini-hub in STL, I could see them expanding into Ohio more, Illinois a little more and even Michigan (by bet would be on FNT if anywhere).

There most recent talks with MIA this past May did not produce anything. jetBlue doesn't want to pay the fees MIA is charging. I still think we'll see them at MIA, but not until they are in a a) situation where they "have to" to expand in SFL or b) MIA offers them a better financial incentive.

For PVD, I could see JFK and possibly IAD..

what does PVD have for gatespace? I dont think they have any open gates do they? They could probably share with Spirit/Delta.. maybe not.. hmm.. Ponder with me about this one...

well PVD does have an AA gate open because in 04' they pulled out all their mainline fleet and stuck 2 eagle flights in instead. so basically the AA gate is empty for most of the day and the Spirit gate is empty for most of the day having also 2 flights a day. So there are two gates free they could also share a gate with CO they don't come frequently but more frequently than AA or Spirit. I think they'll have the most luck with AA or Spirt though and as part of the FAA's plan to spruce up New England airports they plan on extending the south side of the terminal which is the us airways side.

The 2 gates on the right are the 2 AA gates they use 2 times a day.

The Delta/Spirit gates are the 3 on the left the spirit gate which is also used 2 times a day is the one on the far left. also the 2 next to the spirit gate are the DA gates which can be shared with B6 because the most DA planes there at a time are 1.

So there are 3 gates which is probably plenty considering they only got 4 at ORD
