I'm excited that JetBlue is expanding all across the country! I'm glad that they'll be recognized across the country as a lowfare carrier, not just the East Coast. I'm also glad that they'll be having flights to major business destinations like Seattle and Denver, not just leisure destinations in Florida. They have a very good product and there's enough people in New York for them to succeed without relying on connecting passengers or lower load factors. They have a good commitment to New York and are acchieving high goals because they're sticking to one hub.

N509JB, any possibility that JetBlue could come to the Washington DC area in the next year? I travel Washington-Rochester regularly, and for once the problem is on the DC end instead of the Rochester end! :+)

I second Ishky15--good to see JetBlue taking on more clearly-business destinations. You guys are a class act and can expect to earn business travelers as well as leisure travelers. As soon as that frequent flyer plan is in place all the better.

And as soon as you're in DC (Reagan or BWI my preferences, I live in the District) you'll have a loyal customer on DCA-JFK-ROC.

LN-MOW :
that depends on what you want to do of course, but we pay significantly higher than avarage across the board.

DCA-ROCguy:

I have heard IAD in the past, but i wouldnt hold my breath. since we arent gonna open as many stations this year, and with the whole UA/USairways gimick, that one might be on the "long term" list.

but then again...you never know  Big grin

Kansas City anytime soon? It's been awhile since I've seen an Airbus, and I think Vanguard is getting good load factors on the MCI-LGA service at the moment, competing with Midwest Express. I bet there are people here in the KCMetro area that would like to JFK service so they can connect to International destinations overseas easier. I would prefer to have Vanguard and Midwest Express stick around  Smile/happy/getting dizzy, but maybe you could add some more color to our already colorful airport  Smile.

There's a real winner of a thought process:

"Let's begin serving XYZ because they don't have any Airbus service there."

"Or maybe they need a new color to show up because the existing variety is not aesthetically pleasing to the plane spotters there."

Forget about such petty and frivolous secondary reasons such as whether or not there will be a substantial customer base in the region.

SYRACUSE SUCKS FOR AIR TRAVEL.
CHarles Everete (SP?) is the worst airport cominisher(SP?)ever! It took him soooo long to get a cheap airline to come in and didn't protect the traveler when tickets were 800-900 yes those are right from SYRACUSE NY TO BW INTERNATIONAL! Picture that. KICK THAT DORK OUT!

I hope JetBlue comes to Grand Rapids Michigan! GRR is growing swiftly, and our number one destination is NEW YORK CITY!!! Right now, there are only 64 seats daily to NY-LGA. CO EX will begin twice daily in May, but that is still not much. We need low fares here in Grand Rapids, too!!

Dear Max,

Before consigning the SYR airport manager to the fate of the Black Knight in Monty Python ("It's only a flesh wound," consider....

SYR is a smaller market than either Rochester or Buffalo. In regard to low fare carriers:

JetBlue went where the pax and money was first, and still fulfilled their promise to be at SYR within 18 months of operation.

WN picked ALB for its location--juncture 87/90--and BUF for its size and location (proximity to both Southern Ontario (muchos hermanos) and Rochester). ROC got screwed on that one, but maybe not for long. WN is doing great in Upstate NY and probably could make piles of money at all four major Upstate airports.

AirTran picked BUF for all of above reasons. Vanguard the same.

Rochester also has the feisty Rep. Louise Slaughter. When I asked her how we got JetBlue so soon, she looked me in the eye and said, "I made them." I don't doubt it. They wanted her to support JFK slots? Rochester had better be an early destination. Period. I disagree w her on most issues and have never voted for her (I'm a conservative Republican and very pro-life) but she's our lady on airline issues.

Jim Walsh (who I would vote for) could take lessons from her in this regard.

Meanwhile, all upstate NY airports need to get on ATA's case about flights to Chicago. They probably are on ATA's case and I haven't heard.

Take heart, Max. Relief is coming to Upstate including SYR. SYR has a bad demographic and geographic hand in the matter which isn't SYR's fault.
And don't forget Max--write all these airlines, and Walsh, and local govt, and newspaper columns yourself. I do these things for ROC. We Upstaters need to be noisy wheels. :+)

I thought that jetBlue was adding 10 cities per year? At least that that what their press release said. They're going to announce a new city every 5 weeks.

Correct me if I'm wrong here.

Also, any guess when they're coming to either Providence (PVD), Boston (BOS), or Indianapolis (IND)?

Er, I meant *squeaky* wheels. As in the kind that gets the grease. :+)

Thanks Eric for the suggestion. I would love to have Slaughter's job but love studying (and soon, I hope, teaching) theology even more. BTW, I had the conversation with her aboard a DCA-ROC US 737-300 last Christmas. I've probably been on the same plane with Slaughter more than once and not realized it, because I'm usually so busy pointing my camera out the window. :+)

Matt D,

I included some good reasons for MCI service in the post. I know just as well as you and everyone else on here that SOME of my thoughts weren't good reasons for service. I'm on here to express my thoughts about aviation and I would appreciate it if no one made derogatory comments about them. I'm sure you have you're own thoughts about an airline, similar to my thoughts about JetBlue, and I haven't criticized you for it, nor would I if I had the chance. I simply stated that I would sometime like to see a JetBlue aircraft here in Kansas City (because everyone likes to see something new every once in a while). Along with the convenience of not having to take a bus to JFK to connect with an International flight after arriving at LGA, and Midwest Express and Vanguard's profitability on the Kansas City to New York route, the latter being good reasons, the ones before being more like extra little comments. Thank you for your time.

Long-hauls to Seattle, San Diego and Denver (while popular and fantastic cities in their own right) from JFK, are not wise business decisions (in this poster's opinion).

There is a whole host of cities within 1-3 hrs of JFK that make better choices. One roundtrip to Seattle, for 200 or so passengers, is 10 hrs of aircraft utilization. In the same time that aircraft could fly multiple RTs to high-fare cities all across the eastern seaboard.

Ontario and Oakland, are niche markets that are exceptions to above comments. What works there for jetBlue, may not be as rosey (or as satisfying) in the other places.
