I have read this and thought its a great idea. I wonder how it will benefit someone that lives in NYC. Also, what is going on with expansion into Latin America and The Caribbean? I thought they said they'll announce 2 new caribbean destinations this year. Any news on that front? Thanks

Bring JetBlue To Mexico City! (TLC and/or MEX would be great)

It's an interlining announcement. Yawn.

It has almost no benefit for someone living in NYC, or any other city where both airlines operate. The main benefit will be for passangers buying tickets in a city only one or the other flies into.

For someone living in, say, LA, they could buy one ticket from a third party that covers both the JetBlue portion and the Icelandair portion.

It won't, really, other than probably having the flight listed on jetblue.com. It's more of a benefit to the folks that can hop on B6 from a Blue City not served by Icelandair, fly to JFK or BOS and connect.

They announced the interline with LAN, opened PLS, and announced SJU-SXM. It's only May...there is a LOT of time left in 2011.

Let's keep this thread in reference to the interline agreements folks, thanks!

One would need check in and a get a boarding pass separately from each airline, right?

i have seen interline tickets where they are able to print boarding pass for all segments at the origin station! American Airlines is real good about this!

It would be an excellent addition to help fill the BOS flights with higher RASM traffic.

Interesting... welcome to the B6 alliance!

i think we're getting to the point that the world can note these B6 interline agreements without comment. Presumably there will be many more, as B6 approaches the norm in this respect.

I think sooner or later JetBlue will start flights around the world with their own aircraft.First, Latin America and The Caribbean and then Europe and then other places(maybe) As they say, they are becoming a worldwide brand. One person told me sometime ago that "we will remain a domestic carrier" ..and look what happened..they are becoming more and more international by the year.

This one was interesting to me. I can understand airlines like LH, VS, AA and the really large international carriers, but this one was something a bit...different (IMHO).

It's good business for Icelandair and B6. Why not, right?
However, forget premium traffic between US and Europe. An extra stop in Iceland just to show/keep my loyalty to B6 or Icelandair? Must be bottom fares...

Right...  

If anything, it may steal some potential traffic from DL (xxx-JFK-KEF). Not even sure if DL would do this route, or hang on to it, if fuel continues to rise.

Nope. One-stop check in. Both boarding passes at once, and bags checked through to the final destination.

Will this effect Icelandair at SFB with Blue at MCO?
