Big Jetblue Announcement In October

From what I am hearing internally, Dave Barger has stated to a few departments that Jetblue will be announcing something rather significant in the month of October. All types of rumors are going around between crewmembers internally. Anything from E-190's going to the West coast to a merger. All guesses among us at this point.

Any of you guys want to take a guess?

Or someone bought B6 for $2. I recall a recent rumor here about someone considering a purchase/merger of/with B6.

Mergers, in my view, aren't the kind of thing you telegraph like that a month ahead of time. So much can derail a merger, where it would be foolish to say the announcement is 'coming in October.' I'd side with something more 'operational' in nature.

Is that big enough?

I thik your western predictions are off a bit. Why would you move all of the flying out of LGB after so much has been invested there?

I don't mean move the flights.. I mean just move the hub status to ONT.. LGB is at capacity for B6 and there aren't any more flights they can add without some of the other airline(s) departing... ONT, on the other hand, has plenty of space and is not restrictive..

Here's my five bets on what will and won't happen at JetBlue in the near future:

Moving many of the E190s out west: 100%. The bugs have been worked out, and Barger has made many hints about moving some of the E190s out West.

Tests of buy-on-board: 100%. Buy-on-board, as long as it's restricted to meals and such, would be a good idea for B6. Some people don't have time for buying a meal at JFK. And since this is JetBlue, they could throw in some innovative twists... maybe B6 could be the first airline to offer fresh-grilled panini sandwiches (served with Terra Blue chips, of course) on board. Still, they need to stay away from selling Fossil watches and Vera Wang Princess perfume like Skybus does. Oh, and keep the snacks and Coke free, so you'll keep pax happy.

In-flight Wi-Fi: 100%. Virgin America is launching it next year, and Southwest is seriously considering it, too, so JetBlue will need it for competitive reasons. After all, you know that it's mainstream when every new laptop has it and when Apple put Wi-Fi and a web browser in the iPod touch. B6's LiveTV division already has the spectrum from the FCC and is developing the system, so I could see them launching it real soon. But will it be free to all pax or pay-per-use?

The long-rumored Midwestern focus city: 80%. Someday, B6 has to have a Midwestern focus city of some sort. Currently, B6 only serves ORD and CMH in the Midwest (I consider PIT to be East Coast), and they need more Midwestern cities. A strategically-placed Midwestern focus city like STL with about 8 Midwestern cities plus JFK, BOS, SFO, and LGB after the first 3 months of launch would work great.

Merger with Delta Air Lines: 0%. Dave Barger doesn't want JetBlue to merge with Delta. Period. Richard Anderson is salivating over B6, but Barger will do anything to stop a red widget from appearing on JetBlue's tails.

This would make sense. They didn't even serve the midwest for a long time, and if they opened a Midwestern Focus City, I would think they would bring more service to Ohio, Illinois and make a long awaited entry into Michigan

And while I agree they will probably move some of the E-jets out west, I would think they would start with about 5 and see how they do. It would have been nice to see them try and get the E-jet certifed as a "regional" jet for use at LGB, so they are not as slot restricted.

That wouldnt surprise me. Someone has to chase the legacies over the pond. Midwest focus city works as well. Of course it may not be anything related to customers, and might just be a new crew base opening. But theres a lot of opportunity for B6 in the midwest, lets hope they start using those 190's to take advantage of some opportunities.

I disagree. Long-rumored Midwest focus city: 20%. Do they really need it to serve more midwest cities? No!! They could just as easily serve the Midwestern cities from all their current hubs and focus cities efficiently with the E90. Having a midwestern hub/focus city just for midwestern cities is inefficient. Like I said many times before, anything jetBlue wants to do in the midwest, they can do it from their east and west coast hubs and focus cities.. just like they are doing with Chicago...

I'd bet money on this one. Its long been rumored. I see a base announcement coupled with expansion of flights.

Given that B6 has already announced a/c delivery slow downs and is selling a handful of 320's, I can't see where a "huge" expansion would happen anywhere. I agree no one hints of a merger a month ahead of time, especially when the airline, in this case B6, would probably be the buyee and not the buyer unless they are looking at someone smaller. More than likely it just going to be a few new routes, maybe shifting a few flights off of JFK in anticipation of what is likely to be mandated reductions by the FAA. Otherwise, I think it sounds a lot like another sensational a.net "what if" thread.

I would love to see additional OAK service. Maybe they will make OAK another west coast hub and start flying to SAN, SEA, ONT, SLC, DEN, etc. with E-190's. There are one or two open or somewhat open gates in T1, even with the construction that's consumed gates 8 through 12.

If this was to happen would the planes be configured in all coach? What would the seat pitch and width be? And where would they fly? Major airports or secondary ones?

111 Avrocomet : Hey Drgmobile, on the 10 Sep 07 in reply #79 on the Jetblue to YYZ post you stated you had spoke with the company and they advised they had visited YY
112 AsstChiefMark : Cambodia International Airlines flies Embraers?[Edited 2007-09-18 06:30:06]
113 Viaggiare : It's anybody's guess at this point, but some sort of innovative codesharing with non-aligned foreign carriers operating out of JFK's Terminal 4, perha
114 B6MoneyGuyJFK : Since this is all purely speculation, why not partnering with Vueling? Jetblue: JFK - Iceland Vueling: Iceland - Continental Europe Far fetched I kno
115 Post contains images CitrusCritter : This is getting old. XE = ExpressJet. Why would we be talking about Cambodia Intl. in this thread?!? Use your heads people!
116 SkyyMaster : There are obviously some out of date databases out there.
117 Ptugarin : Going transatlantic with A350?
118 747fan : I think that JetBlue's Embraer 190's would still be too much airplane for the type of routes mentioned above - I can't see RDU-SDF and ABQ-SMF being
119 PlanesNTrains : It would seem pretty clear that, if you listen to the folks in this thread who sound the most "in the know", that JetBlue will announce Orlando as a f
120 ERJ170 : True. There is only enough room for one airline on RDU-SDF to be profitable and i think AE should let XE have it. JetBlue would be crazy to even cons
121 Aerofan : Response to wrong post. sorry[Edited 2007-09-18 19:51:55]
122 Clipper136 : Not the ILS critical area...the end of the new wing would penetrate (the top corner by approx 5ft) the imaginary approach surfaces. The plan has been
123 MAH4546 : Within a year, nobody will be on that route anymore. I think the only good thing that has came out of the whole XE/RDU/MQ battle is that one airline
124 SkyyMaster : I have to agree. People get really carried away when things like this "leak" out. If every rumor on a.net came true, the effect on the industry would
125 Steeler83 : What are the yields at PIT and CMH, cargohold or basement? Due to fares in the cargohold/basement. They haven't increased fares to $59-$69 to JFK or
126 CuriousFlyer : It looks like JetBlue is eagerly expected, be it in FL, in Canada, for WiFi or for international travel: everyone wants JetBlue. I vote for Canada (I
127 N623JB : I hope that jetBlue's home base will still be JFK. let them expand as far as the eye can see. They can use terminal 6 when terminal 5 opens..and guess
128 Post contains images 747fan : The performance of RDU-SDF for both AE and XE sucks. Hence the reason AE will be dropping the route soon. Although maybe XE will keep their standalon
129 Rheinbote : They are going to buy A321ER
130 N623JB : did someone tell you that they were going to buy those types? I wonder: are those planes capable of flying futher out than the A320?
131 747fan : No. The A320, depending on its MTOW, has a range between about 2600-3000 nm. In comparison, the A321-100 has a range of 2300 nm. and 2600 nm. for the
132 USAirALB : B6 could go JFK-AUS-West Coast or something like that
133 EMBQA : I doubt highly the E190 will go west right now as the route structure is not set up to support it....unless they establish a west coast hub..but even
134 Rheinbote : You are driving by the rear-view mirror.[Edited 2007-09-22 20:18:29]
135 SANFan : How hard is it to add a daily 190 r/t between, say, SAN and AUS, tagged on to one of the existing 3 AUS-JFK flights? You have an instant flight acros
136 EMBQA : Harder then you think. Your also talking parts, training, spares......a lot more to it then you'd understand. Then with your routes there is no other
137 Post contains images Af773atmsp : B6 is going to start service at MSP and MSP will be a focus city. B6 will fly out of the Lindbergh Terminal and start MSP-BOS, MSP-PDX, MSP-SEA, MSP-L
138 CitrusCritter : Heh. If they were going to go into a fortress, why not go into CVG where they can put a hurting on primary JFK competition DL?
139 N623JB : I dont think anyone here thought about the future of jetBlue inflight service. not sure. Anyway, what has been around is now going to say here. On boa
140 Flybyguy : The trans-atlantic service will be remenicent of the failed People Express business model. A merger with Virgin America is even less likely because t
141 Deltaflyertoo : Actually trans Atlantic worked OKAY at the time for People Express. I believe the EWR-LGW runs on those 747s were always packed. The problem was what
142 N623JB : B6 should go across the "pond"(Atlantic Ocean).. who ever said about the confirmed but unknown order of A330's from the EADS book? can you send me a l
143 RW717 : I have a very good source that has told me that B6 will start SFO-LGB with the E190 in March or May.
144 JerseyGuy : 2 problems with that 1. F9 couldn't make SFO-LAX work 2. LGB is slot controlled and the E190 doesn't qualify for commuter slots.
145 JetBluefan1 : Unless JetBlue miraculously worked out a deal with LGB to have its E190's qualify for the commuter slots, I don't see LGB-SFO starting. Unless....coul
146 Deltaflyertoo : The only "big announcement" would have to be LAX at this point. As pointed out moving the 190s out west isn't feasable and, is it really that exciting
147 YVR1968 : I am sure we would see YVR flights well before flights to YYC. I could defnitely see YYZ flights starting soon.
148 N623JB : anybody have hints with jetBlue flying over the Ocean?
149 Post contains images GoBlue : They already do when they go to the caribbean
150 SKYYBLUE : LGB-OAK doesn't seem to be a steller performer, maybe a switch to SFO would be a good thing. You are right, effective March 01, 2008 FLL-OAK is no mo
151 Richierich : Trans-Atlantic? On JetBlue? Come on people... you've all let your fantasies take the place of common sense. JetBlue is reeling from debt at the moment
152 WepaMan : I agree with you, the big news propperly is not going what we think...or want Wepa
153 SkyyMaster : I'm glad someone else thinks this way too. Last time I made a similar statement, I was flamed big time as being a B6 hater. This is going to be one o
154 Rcardinale : yea add me to the list I think that the possibilities of B6 going to europe are slim to none at this point in time. I'm wondering though if FLL-OAK di
155 Richierich : I admit that I don't have any skin the game, so it doesn't matter to me, but I hope for everybody that it is good news. 2007 will go down as a diffic
156 MAH4546 : FLL-LGB has been a solid performer for years. Oddly enough, FLL-OAK is a bigger O&D market than FLL-LGB, and FLL-OAK's loads were great. I find the c
157 ERJ170 : Okay.. this may be a silly question.. but I'm gonna ask it. IF jetBlue moves some of the E90 to the west coast.. where are they going to go? On the ea
158 SKYYBLUE : I don't know which loads you witnessed? Those flights consistently left with an average of 60-90 passengers. I wouldnt call that great on a 150 seat
159 JetBluefan1 : My feeling is that if OAK-LGB is cut (and OAK-SFO replaces it), OAK will become a 1-gate operation for JetBlue with 3 flights to JFK, 2 to IAD, and o
160 N623JB : I hope that they dont take all the E190s away from JFK. lol. I love those planes. I just hope that they get another type of aircraft like the A330/A35
161 Iaddca : wonder how B6 will do going up against BART
162 B6FA4ever : *LOL*
163 RW717 : There will be 5 new cities next year and SLC will be expanded. Any ideas?
164 JetBluefan1 : LOL. I meant SFO-LGB. My bad. Where'd you hear this from? It sounds perfectly feasible - the SLC-SAN flights have been doing very well (with SLC-SFO
165 B6MoneyGuyJFK : Well don't know if this counts as "big", but just read another thread on A.net. According to the DOT, we filed filed for service to POP.
166 FLYB6JETS : CLASSIC
167 Post contains images N623JB : What ever is going to be announced is "big"..."significant". What can that be thats so significant? moving E-190's doesnt sound that big. Mergers? I d
168 JerseyGuy : As far as I know there are no more gates and full utilization of the current gate (A7) is difficult due to the proximity to Frontier's gate (A5).
169 JetBlueAUS : There are so many more markets that jetBlue could grow in and be even more successful than growing in SLC.
170 SANFan : I beg to differ, 'JB. "Moving E-190's", in my opinion, could be HUGE. If jetBlue does create a sub-fleet of 190s in the west, it could include an all
171 N623JB : Keep JFK as their home base still. and move some of their E-190s to the west for the routes there. Like...OAK-LGB. Thats a good one, to use a E-190.
172 KarlB737 : Why not? Prices are too high there for most travelers. It is the midwest. WN and AirTran aren't there. Well?
173 EMBQA : As I've said above, moving the E190 west is highly-highly unlikely. The current route structure in the west does not support its use or movement.
174 SANFan : But how can they develop route structure in the west without a/c? I don't know why so many seem to think they have to be flying all these intra-west
175 N623JB : jetBlue Airways should fill in the empty spaces on the map...like...South Dakota,North Dakota,Wyoming,Minnesota,etc.
176 JetBlueGuy2006 : Don't forget Michigan.....
177 Post contains images SANFan : There ya go; the 190 would be perfect for an hourly shuttle between Bismarck and Rapid city, no? bb
178 N623JB : sure why not..yea..i almost forgot about Michigan.
179 Post contains images B777ER : An inside source at B6 let it leak: They are ordering 4 A380's for JFK-SFO/LAX service and redeploying the A320's on routes to Haiti. Each A380 will h
180 N623JB : ur joking,right?.....oh also..where is that site where you can modify the aircraft online. like modeling a 747 for jetBlue?
181 N623JB : When is the annoucement going to be? (If anyone knows). Thank You.
