Will Jetblue Downsize FLL?

With the announcement of MCO being a focus city, and very limited gate space here in FLL, does anyone think that FLL will be downsized ro possibly the base being taken away for B6? The gate situation could be taken care of by simply moving Northwest over to terminal 3 with Delta since Delta's gates always seem to be open and not being used. You cant start any international service because the customs in FLL sucks and lets face it Term 4 is a dump. So what else can you do out of FLL if your Jetblue?

jetBlue's growth potential may be limited at FLL due to gate restrictions but why would they downsize simply because they cant grow? Its all about maximizing what assets you do have and it looks like B6 its getting high utilization out of its FLL facilities. AW

There are zero plans to downsize. B6 will continue to expand the jetBlue route map, and look for it to mirror MCO's route map in many ways, at least domestically. FLL-BTV is pretty much a given for next winter. FLL-STI is looking likely, too.

I agree that B6 will not make cuts at FLL, but I wonder where they will expand. They don't seem commited to transcon flights out of FLL as they cut OAK, so that leaves me to believe that cities such as PIT, ROC, ORD and the Caribbean are the likely targets. Although most people believe PIT could be an endangered species.

Quoting B752OS (Reply 4):

They only had two in the first place, and they are certainly committed to LGB which has been running for almost five years now.

With fuel prices the way they are (which is what killed OAK), trans-cons aren't likely in the short-term, but in the long-term I would not rule out SFO, BUR, or SAN.

Wouldn't BUR be a stretch? We all saw how well MCO-BUR did.

Any chance we could see B6 enter STT from MCO or FLL?

I don't think so. Look how well FLL-LGB has done over the years. Miami-LA is a larger market, with more business travel. They relied too heavily on the idea that Disney folks would use the flight.

Though now that JetBlue is flying to LAX, I do think FLL-LAX would be more likely than FLL-BUR.

In no way would JetBlue ever downsize FLL. It's a profitable station and is a great way to increase efficiency to secondary and tertiary cities in JetBlue's system, such as BUF and AUS. With access to 6 gates, JetBlue still has the opportunity to add a few more flights.

Considering that LGB has been a success, BUR is not a stretch in any way. Further, MCO-BUR did poorly because the flight took up an aircraft for the entire day, unlike a FLL-BUR flight which would most likely be a night flight and then a redeye turn.

Most people on a.net hate JetBlue. Get used to it.

Na because the reason they do JFK-LAX is because so many other airlines do that over LGB or BUR
but no one (or barely anyone) does FLL-LAX

American Airlines and Spirit do FLL-LAX. Delta did it until last month. How is that nobody?

Not only that but let's also not forget that, unlike other Florida markets such as Orlando, the FLL station has significant Florida-originating traffic. Especially during the summer time when flights like FLL-SYR are filled with South Floridians, who love to escape to New York in the summer months. I'm a little surprised they haven't tried out FLL-PWM, yet. South Floridians love Maine during the summer, that flight could be a winner.

It would be nice if NW and DL go ahead and tie the not so NW can move to terminal 2 so that frees up 2 gates for B6...
