Future Outcome Of San Jose Intl Airport (KSJC)

As I was driving home the other day from school, I was listening to the radio and there was a news report on how San Jose Airport is losing some flights to the East Coast from jetBlue, United, and Continental (if im correct). Apart from the airport reducing fees for airlines serving the airport, do you think that once the new terminal is opened, there will be an increase and improvement of service into San Jose or will the new terminal and the costs of developing and building the terminal spell disaster for the airport?

On a personal side note, I really like flying out of the airport. I have done so five times and it is always so easy to go from dropoff to the gate for Southwest Airlines. I find the terminal to be a "no hassle" environment (excpet TSA but when is that neveer a problem  Wink ) and really hope that more carriers consider the airport as an option for their network development.

Personally I find SJC to be at least as big a pain as SFO when I'm doing business in the Silicon Valley. When things go smoothly it's nice, but I seem to have more problems there then SFO (not necessarily the airport's fault). When things go wrong at SJC, there are often few if any options for alternate flights. Last time I tried SJC (for work in Cupertino) I ended up being shuttled in a van at 85mph to SFO to catch an alternate flight. That wasn't the first time I'd had such luck. Since then I've just started booking flights from SFO. At least there are more options.

I see it as a situation that will feed on itself. The fewer flights there are, the fewer options there are and the less I like to use the airport for business.

the reductions are inline with the respective carrier's cost-reduction schemes outlined for the upcoming down season (SEP-NOV)

com Sep jetBlue will be the only carrier operating a transcon from SJC
(SJC-JFK daily will still be operational)

dont be surprised if jetBlue brings back more trancons during the holiday season
or new routes possibly- wouldnt count on CO or UA bringing anything back

"come fly with me"

Yea a bunch of B6's cuts are seasonal, or are routes that were decent/good performers and could come back if things get better cost structure wise.

I think SJC needs to get through this major phase in its redevelopment before you see the return of any signifigant service to the airport. The airport is far more convienient for west coast travel. But right now its a real pain to get in and out of and the TSA screening areas are to small for the morning rush. The completion of the A term remodel and the opening of the B terminal will help the airport and its users fully realise its convience factor over other bay area airports.

I totally agree with all comments! I have only used SJC for flights to Los Angeles and I think.......... San Diego but im not sure. I live a lot closer to OAK which is nice but there were few times when i was staying at a friends house and SJC was closer for me due to the timing of both of my visits.

Completely inaccurate. Delta will still operate their SJC-ATL double daily, except on Saturday's. (Unless you don't consider this a transcon)

You are correct: SJC-ATL is absolutely not a trans-con.; a long-haul but certainly not a trans-con. Maybe in 20-30 years ATL will be on the east coast but let's hope not.  Wink

(BTW, Happy Anniversary Flyi'.)
