I like it

2 more to RDU

Looks like Southwest and Jetblue ( which allow at least 1 free checked bag) are expanding while the other airlines are contracting.

The flying public is voting with their wallet and market share. Hopefully this isn't just an anomoly.

Very nice for RDU and CLT, obviously, RDU is working very well for them, there's now more gates for them to use and several JFK frequencies are now on the 320s

Wow, that's a lot of expansion out of BOS.
Is anywhere being pulled-down to make up for this increase? Last I heard, JetBlue is not receiving any new planes for a while.

Great to see SAN get a second flight and a daylight flight on the SAN-BOS leg.

Is the SDQ flight additions going to be seasonal?

I wonder when we'll start to see LH codes on B6 flights out of BOS. I wonder if LH will ever start towing its aircraft to a B6 gate in order to facilitate transfers for outbound passengers. That would be really cool.

B6 tried BOS-PHX and outside of October through April, the flights did not do so well.


78 flights to 33 destinations is not so bad. Has any airline ever offered so many destinations out of BOS?

Thats there I think it would be smart of B6 to add PHL since its really only a matter of time for WN.

First pax to fly on the new code share is on Nov 11th Mumbai-JFK-PIT. Couldn't fined anything out of BOS. As far as towing over to B6, I haven't heard anything about that but there are lots of plans for the future in BOS and JFK concerning the new codeshare.

I had a certain premonition about this last night. Seems like it came true!

Nice to see increased frequencies on all these routes, especially RDU, CLT, and ORD. 3x to each of these will be more attractive to lucrative business travelers. I wonder if JFK-ORD is being brought down at all, but I doubt it since ORD no longer has slots...(right??)

The 7th additional flight to IAD is not surprising. This route has been stellar since the beginning. With the 5 BWI flights as well, B6 has the BOS-WAS market pretty well covered. Now only if they could get some slots at DCA!

The second BOS-SAN is kind of surprising, especially since B6 has been pulling transcon frequencies lately. Has AA officially given up on this route?

The second BOS-DEN is a clear reaction to WN. Do note that JFK-DEN is losing a frequency.

Quoting Richierich (Reply 4):

Good question. I think the majority of this new flying will have to do with increased aircraft utilization, which has been gradually decreasing. B6 can get at least another 2 hours worth of flying out of each plane.

Nice job, B6! Hopefully these flights go without a hitch...

They already do to Florida, and I imagine we'll see the codeshare expand over time to cover more routes. With all of these new flights, connecting in BOS will be easier, so I'm sure we'll see LH adding their code to Boston flights. It would be cool to see LH towing its aircraft to Terminal C, but I think it's more likely for EI to move into Terminal C when DUB gets US preclearance. Then pax won't have to walk from E to C.

I do too. I'm always looking forward to what they are doing next. I always go crazy when I wait for a few months for them to do something new here, imagine what it will be like when they reach their peak here and it takes years!

I wonder how long it will be before they go to MHT or PVD. Not all B6 pax are going to Boston.

I also wonder what destination #34 and destination #35 out of BOS will be. I'm going to have to get on one of their flights sometime.

United can not be happy about this announcement. Of the 5 current United Hubs, 4 of them are seeing increases in BOS service from B6 here. While ORD will be fine I think, DEN is getting added service, with WN already in the market, and then there is also the possibilty that Republic may try to throw something into the mix with either YX or F9. IAD is getting added service as well, and given the fact that UA runs a lot of RJ's on this route with a mainline here and there, B6 is going to always guarantee you a Mainline plane, which can only help them, not to mention the fact that since there is other carriers with DCA service, thats where the real yields are going as well. SFO getting added frequency is going to further trash UA yields on a route which has become an absolute bloodbath and which UA is losing yields fast (With VX and B6 now firmly entrenched in the market. I don't know if AA is on the SFO route from BOS or not, but with their SFO mx base going away, or at least downgraded, I wouldn't be surprised to see AA just pull the plug on this route altogether.

Correct, though they still only have one gate - unless they get closer to UA and bum space from UA as CO did.

How do you mean? Each of the dropped mainline routes and a number of the Connection routes have a new carrier.

Hmm. I hadn't noticed that. I guess they're better off than I thought. But BOS doesn't seem to be losing service the way STL has over time. It's possible that the situation at STL isn't too bad, however.

I take it the UA pier of Terminal C will be available to B6 by then? I have the impression it's just the lack of gates that has kept them from expanding. I don't see any obvious signs of a post-security connection between the piers, but I keep hearing it's coming.

I strongly agree with those wanting to see BOS-PHL. The current fares are extortionary.

and one more flight to BWI. wish i could see the numbers on how that battle is working out.

Another possibility... could JetBlue be jetting from Gate E8 over to Delta's old L gates that are going to be vacated in a few days? That way, they could add LAX, FLL, SFO, and MCO (among others) and neutralize the Peotone supporters' three core age-old arguments in the process:

"UA/AA have a duopoly from Chicago to LAX/SFO/LGA/BOS!" (Never mind that WN flies all four of those "duopoly" routes nonstop from MDW, which is far closer to downtown Chicago than a south suburban airport in Peotone would ever be.)
"Airlines and passengers alike will flock to a third airport!" (Even though no airline has signed on to use it, cargo or pax, and there's no way UPS would move from RFD. And who would pay $80 for a cab fare to downtown Chicago from a proposed airport that would also have no CTA/Metra access? Shades of BLV...)
"A third airport is needed to stimulate competition!" (There is a third airport in Chicagoland, and a fourth one, too, and they're both paid for, approved by the City of Chicago, and expanding them won't cost $2+ billion. One even has airline service from G4, and the other is working on DEN and IAD. Their IATA codes are RFD and GYY.)

103 MAH4546 : It doesn't matter. Interlining is cheap for passengers. They interline with AA to LAX and MIA; US to LGA and DCA; DL to ATL. You name it, you can int
104 EA CO AS : It has nothing to do with humidity - it's all about cost and travel time. That's why Hawaii is more popular with West Coasters than the East and why
105 Airbazar : There are some examples like, if a plane pushes back on time but it sits on the tarmac for 2 hours it will be recorded as a on-time departure. And II
106 Tharanga : Good point on the departures, but I think I was looking at on-time arrival percentages; that would take care of that. Well, you have to give a little
107 JetBluefan1 : Schedule for summer 2010 has been released on jetblue.com. All of these flight additions have been added to the schedule. Nice to see BOS-LAX will rem
108 ChrisNH : I hope Alaska Air doesn't cut Boston in the face of this. That's such an iconic livery we rarely see. However, I do see that they are so on the other
109 B752OS : I don't think you will see AS cut BOS-SEA. It is a large market to being with and B6 adding 3 x weekly 320 flights is not too large of a capacity inc
110 Tharanga : a bit off the topic, but any word on how sun country is doing in BOS? Are they going to stick around? They have absolutely zero brand name recognition
111 Airbazar : I think a bigger challenge for AS will be if WN decides to enter the market. As has a strong following in Seattle but they're nearly a complete unkno
112 Tharanga : They don't have to. I thought the BOS flights all had codeshares of some sort. AA or DL, I forget.
113 PI731 : I remember Back in the late 90’s US had over 200 flights a day out of BOS. It was mainly Beech 1900’s. They also added Dulles on their Shuttle net
114 BOStonsox : I think B6 will be able to take over some of UA's gates down the road. Especially if UA merges with CO and then they could get into Terminal A or may
115 Cubsrule : With WN moving away from longhauls, I'd be shocked to see SEA-BOS.
116 Airbazar : Away? They are just starting to embrace it What do you call MHT-LAS/PHX, PVD-LAS/PHX, BWI-SAN, even DEN-BOS is pretty long. Little by little you will
117 JetBluefan1 : I really can't see this route being feasible for WN - at all. BOS is a very small WN station right now, and SEA is relatively small in comparison to
118 Cubsrule : It's apples and oranges; there's a 200 flight WN operation on one end - just as there is on every WN flight of this length.
119 Airbazar : That depends. Does your data show that the majority of passengers on that flight are connecting? When I took it the vast majority were not connecting
120 Tharanga : I'm guessing sooner than later. Once the two piers are connected.
121 DeltaRules : Come back to CMH! They'd have had my business with that travel pass they offered recently had they still been in town. DL still runs BOS-CMH, though t
122 Cubsrule : Connecting is only part of the story; folks in BWI are probably more loyal to WN than those in BOS because WN has a much larger market share. The sam
