Agreed. Maybe they'll simply change it to SAN-MIA.

I thought that the A320's range was just a little short for the BOS-SAN route. Is that not the case?

BOS-SAN is 2,249 nm according to Great Circle Mapper http://gc.kls2.com/ and A.net's aircraft DB indicates a range of 2,615-3,065 nm for the A320, assuming 150 pax and also depending on engine model and reserve options.

Not necessarily.

This is a daylight flight - B6 is a night flight.

AA225

Similar times BOS-SAN, yes.

SAN-BOS = 2249 nm.
SAN-JFK = 2125 nm.

Normally, this is within the A320's range; however, winter jetstream problems will mean a LOT of fuel stops westbound.

The only worry I would have is since this is an overnight flight, the outbound SAN-BOS depends on an on-time arrival from Boston. Because of SAN's VERY strict curfew, if you're not airborne by 11:30, you're either going to pay $$$$ to house the travellers or $$$$$$ for a curfew fine.

There's about a two hour window provided, but in winter, if that flight is late leaving BOS and has to stop for fuel enroute, you could conceivably have a lot of cancelled departures to BOS.

I don't see why you think AA will stop the flight? BOS has huge demand to California and should have no problem supporting 2 daily flights to SAN. If anything, this will only increase the market.

AA doesn't like competing with jetBlue in niche markets, and this is one of them. American Airlines will definitely keep the route going over the summer and see how it performs versus jetBlue. There is no doubt that the route is at high risk of being discontinued. AA might keep it going, but I doubt it. They can use the plane somewhere else without jetBlue competing.

Then I would expect B6 to increase to 2 daily IF AA is to pull out.

Hallelujah! How did I miss seeing that? Oh this is wonderful news; thank you for finally seeing the SAN light, Blue! (I know, I really do need to get a life...  Sad )

I like your point '747 -- maybe AA will leave their flight (and could they actually add MIA too?) Where are you MAH4546? Got any update on that for us?

The last numbers I've seen are from DOT 3Q06 which shows SAN-BOS O&D at 619; I sure don't see a problem with that count supporting 2 n/s a day (plus B6 should carry some connecting folks as well, right?)

Looks like B6 will be spreading out a bit at Lindbergh. Assuming there are no major changes to their existing flights, there will be a couple of Blue-tails at T2W simultaneously (and at a pretty busy time of night.)

(Is this the appropriate time to beg B6 to consider that SAN-MCO flight I've been screaming about?  Wink )

Thank you for listening JetBlue; this is a great move!

Pending aircraft availability, so would I.

American Airlines pulled out of Boston-San Jose, Boston-Orlando, Boston-Ft. Lauderdale, New York City-Oakland, New York City-Phoenix, New York City-San Jose, and New York City-Long Beach, mostly all (all except BOS-SJC, IIRC) due to jetBlue.

This isn't a question of American Airlines and jetBlue being able to fill planes, they both will. The question is if American Airlines, who will have to match jetBlue's fares on their higher cost structure, will be able to keep the route profitable. The answer is most likely no. They've suffered enough on BOS-LAX and BOS-SFO, and jetBlue doesn't even compete directly on those, yet.

(Is this the appropriate time to beg B6 to consider that SAN-MCO flight I've been screaming about? )

If you see jetBlue do Florida-San Diego, put your money on SAN-FLL, not SAN-MCO. Higher yielding market, more business travel, and slightly larger. jetBlue's only Florida-California routes go to Ft. Lauderdale, and after the disaster on Orlando-Burbank (which was announced as being discontinued something like four weeks after the first flight), I don't think that will change.

This long-awaited service will definitely perform very well. BOS-SAN seems to be a way underserved market and JetBlue has brand name recognition in both markets, so it will be successful. BOS-AUA will hopefully mirror the success that JFK-AUA now is.

Has anyone recognized that B6 hasn't announced a new city since (ironically) February 14th? It's probably best for B6 to "lay low" by connecting the dots instead of announcing new cities as the media of any new cities would probably report, "JetBlue, the airline which stranded its customers on jets for 10 hours during a Valentine's Day snow storm, has announced that it will launch service to XXXXXX, XX". JetBlue doesn't want any negative attention as its first true interaction with new cities, so it's best to connect the dots between cities that already know the brand. Besides, there are already over 50 markets in JetBlue's network that need a lot of connecting, and connecting the dots is arguably much cheaper to do than to start a whole new station.

On that note, does anyone know what B6's gate situation is at SAN? Last time I was there they were using 37 and 38, but now with three red-eyes, what's going to happen?

Actually BOS-SAN and BOS-LGB are within a dozen nautical miles of the same distance point-to-point. Jet Blue up until now been playing games "dual filing" flight plans to the west coast. That sort of thing is normally reserved for the ultra long haul set like Singapore and Thai Air on trans-pacific flights. But until a Fed ramp checks them and finds out they have below minimum fuel at destination nothing will be done. Still it's most unlikely a B6 A320 will land on top of the Laural Parking Garage with fuel exhaustion.

I dare say that there will not be "lots" of fuel stops - its a much overplayed theme here on airliners.net. I hear that, yes, there are the occasional tech stops but they are rare even in the winter. Much more frequent, although still somewhat rare, are fuel stops out of BUR eastbound.

and I don't see the BOS flight even listed yet on the on-line schedule. I want to wait until all the schedules are in so it can be verified just to make sure B6 hasn't done something major (like cancelling the SAN-IAD flight or something.)

B6 has used 37 and 38 but lately has been only in 37 (with no need for a second gate.) As there are over 50 RON a/c per night at Lindbergh (with 41 gates), after 9PM, real estate is very tight so looks like more towing may be necessary.

I thought B6 was real tight on AirBi; anyone know where this plane came from? (It could almost be added op's on an existing a/c but it starts out of BOS kind of early in the evening for that...)

Quoting MAH4546 (Reply 11):
If you see jetBlue do Florida-San Diego, put your money on SAN-FLL, not SAN-MCO.

You're right MAH'. I usually beg for SAN-Florida, being quite happy for MCO, MIA, FLL, TPA, or Pensacola, but this time I thought maybe B6 would be watching MCO closely as FL has already announced SAN-MCO (2x weekly) and WN is really growing that Florida station big-time (along with fairly substantial growth in SAN). I also thought gates were very scarce at Lauderdale and B6 was pretty much maxed out there.

If B6 would give us a FLL flight, I would be more than happy! [Can anyone in San Diego say F-O-C-U-S C-I-T-Y?] Maybe we should start practicing...  stirthepot

There is no doubt BOS has a lot of demand to California, on straight O&D, it has to be a top 3 east coast market. But AA has enjoyed being the only airline on the route and a B6 entry could and probably will lower yields on the route. As I mentioned, if AA decides to stop the route in favor of sedning the 752 for a route out of ORD or DFW, I would bet that b6 will add a second daily flight. The other benefit is that with the lower yields come more daily passengers. We shall soon see.

As MAH just said, JetBlue's configuration is now only with 150 seats. Compared with last year, this is 6 less seats, 6 less entertainment systems, 6 less passengers (on a full flight), and one less flight attendant. I have a feeling that the relief in weight will help with the fuel stops that JetBlue sometimes has to make over the summer.
