Where do they currently fly to MCO from (or have previously announced service)?

I can only think of JFK, BOS, HPN, SWF, SJU... SYR too?

Then my guess is BTV & ROC (the latter is a FL route, isn't it?) Air Tran and JetBlue seem to have a thing for copying each other lately.

FL does serve ROC via MCO but I'm sure its 2x daily. If B6 can match these fares i'm sure more people would B6 because of Live TV.

That would be interesting. I'm not sure though, I agree with MCOFlyer that it is more likely to be upstate and more likely to be an A320 market.

Threadstarter: do you know or are you going off of rumors? Is it possible there is another Caribbean market too?

if it is connecting the dots, it won't be to a NY airport since the 5 NY airports we serve already have service to MCO. i'm thinking its probably going to be BTV and/or ROC.

though i'd like to see an MCO-LGB flight (since BUR didn't work w/ the O&D)...at least in LGB there are connection possibilities w/ OAK, SMF, LAS, and SLC.

or go head-on w/ Southwest and do IAD-MCO.

I think that IAD could be a winner. Maybe even LGB or OAK.

I doubt you'll see anything from LGB thanks to the slot restrictions. It doesn't make sense for JetBlue to essentially waste a precious slot on a redeye to MCO when JFK, ORD, BOS and IAD make more sense. Too bad the Disney express route didn't work out....

Awhile back, B6's route map had a 'mysterious' BUF-MCO when you clicked on Denver, but it is now gone. Could it be that? Then again, BUF-MCO has a good chunk of capacity on it already, with WN up to 3x daily, FL 1x daily (maybe 2?), and I think US might even have a seasonal Saturday service still. Also, fares are low enough already, so B6 isn't "needed." Same goes for ROC- good amount of capacity, and low fares on FL and, seasonally, DL. ALB makes me think, though. Maybe they'll start with a daily flight to MCO? Maybe they'll just leave WN alone.
I can't think of a city that doesn't have MCO service (that B6 would likely serve, anyway), that could warrant it. Who knows; we could see LGB and OAK-MCO pop up on the route map. OAK could have some nice potential for jetBlue. I'd imagine the yields would be pretty good as well, with only UA going to the Bay area from MCO.

I would think of PIT being on there... but with low load factors to JFK and BOS, their main bases, and with a slew of other airlines on PIT-MCO like US (737s and A320s), WN (737s) and FL (one daily 717), I don't think B6 will put an A320 or even annother E90 there...

I suppose RDU... but how about ORD, or a Western destination? I guess there is too much competition from ORD with AA and UA and other airlines?

I don't think IAD is one of them because of WN on the route. The 2 don't really compete head-to-head.

What about SAN!?!?!?!?

AUS

Not totally out of the question since DL just backed out on the route, but the route is still operated by WN and my suspicion is that there are lower-hanging fruit for B6 to pick from.

Of course, I'd like to be wrong in this case.  Smile

SAN-MCO?? Why would that work? If they couldn't make BUR-MCO work, and assuming they are not willing to use a slot for LGB-MCO, why SAN? I guess anything is possible but I doubt it will be a Calif. city.

I'm guessing it will be more upstate NY or VT, possibly PWM. If it even happens at all. I realize life has to go on at B6, but it seems a little soon after last weeks' negative press to be announcing new routes. I'd think another week or two, at least, but I can only guess.

SAN has no non-stop service to Florida whatsoever. So SAN-MCO is definitely a possibility and could really be a great route for JetBlue. I heard that it has over 600 O&D.

SAN in the Highest ranking O&D market from MCO that is not currently served by a direct flight (217 daily passengers 4th QTR 06)

PDX is the next Highest (167 daily passengers, 4th QTR 06). This will be served by AS in Sept07.

It's probably not ROC, since as MCOFlyer noted FL runs 2x daily nonstop. What I can't believe is that no one is serving ROC-South Florida daily. FL only brought back Saturday-only ROC-FLL this winter. Granted, Faremeasure is 2-year old data but if anything, the route probably has more than the 146 daily pax they're showing right now. JetBlue could probably easily run a daily EMB-190 on the route. One more flight they wouldn't have to run through JFK.

jetBlue would love to add more flights, but outside of adding flights in the early morning or late night, they are maxed out of gatespace at FLL. And the new routes they have added lately to HPN and SWF have come at the expense of JFK and EWR frequencies.

26 MFEFlyer : Maybe MFE..............maybe to compete with G4 (MFE-SFB) during the summer. Just my two cents.
27 JetBluefan1 : Wow...2 daily to IAD! I guess the FLL and PBI flights are doing well. And this goes head-to-head with WN. The only other route with such a claim is IA
