DL Adding JFK-MSY Schedule Identical To JetBlue

DL announced today new n/s service between JFK-MSY. The irony is the flight schedules are almost exactly the same as jetBlue's new service. Given a choice of 3 hours on an MD-88 or an A320 Im going to select jetBlue. New planes, leather seats and tv's make a huge difference on flights of that length. Looks like DL is trying to protect their turf - God, I love competition.

Gotta love those SkyMiles though!

Doesn't DL serve MSY nonstop from LGA??

the reason the sked is the same, is that allows both B6 and DL to only use one aircraft for the route flying both daily trips. Any different timing would require a second aircraft.

Reward the reformers wherever possible, I say. JetBlue has a great product, and forces the Six high-fare Families to lower fares on routes where they compete.

As obviously as the new DL JFK-MSY flights are a competitive response to JEtBlue, there is some truth I think to the claims in Delta's press release about international flights. Two MD-80s a day might easily be mostly filled with international travelers hooking up with DL's big int'l schedule at JFK.

Keep an eye on capacity. Delta's new JFK-MSY schedule offers slightly fewer seats per day than JetBlue. IF DL suddenly doubles or triples capacity on the route, at the same or lower fares, then they're getting predatory.

Delta currently operates one 767-232 and one 763 on LGA-MSY at 1200 and 1800 from LGA, yet Delta does not offer MSY-LGA service.

Go JetBlue. Capture the $50.00 a seat o/d passengers.

DL is aiming for the higher yielding international passengers in the market.
