Sure enough, this was talked about a long time ago.
Rumor: Jetblue To Start BDL-SJU (by boeing71234567 Nov 17 2010 in Civil Aviation)?threadid=4986700&searchid=4987497&s=BDL-SJU#ID4987497

Jetblue has announced service to SJU out of BDL

http://www.courant.com/business/hc-j...juan-0630-20110629,0,3476779.story

Now SJU, hopefully we can get some service to other airports like Houston, and Pheonix from BDL.

As it stands right now, I doubt we'll see BDL - PHX or HOU. HOU is still only seeing 2X daily to JFK, PHX was "expanded" to have service to JFK and BOS.

I was assuming that was not a B6 related comment since theres not a chance in hell of that. but BDL- PHX (WN) or IAH (CO/UA) are both probably low-hanging fruit.

My guess is the next B6 BDL route would be RSW or PBI, Then (preferably before) im hoping they will hop over to PVD with MCO/FLL then eventually do the same thing there.

I agree - I think BDL will grow into a HPN-sized operation with between 1-3 daily flights between MCO, FLL, PBI, RSW and TPA. And of course SJU. My guess is that at least one or two of these rotations will involve the E190 and possibly a second gate, if B6 can acquire such a thing.

The SJU flight is a no-brainer.

Yea I think all you have to do is look at what DL offered last year and essentially replace it with B6. (2x MCO 2x FLL 1x TPA PBI RSW).

I am ( and Im sure B6 is too) that DL is still flying BDL-MCO.

Do you think we will see B6 create hub at SJU the size of AA's former hub? I would think they would need to add some non-stop services from places like ORD, IAD, PHL, PIT and also add a few more caribbean destinations from SJU...

If it did become a B6 hub, could we see some flights to Latin America. I always thought SJU could be a MIA like hub but it was too competitive/repeative with MIA in AA's network...

I believe that SJU is going to be a "Focus City" by summers end. Also, in 2012, look to the south as more Latin American cities will be announced.


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

They may as well add CCS, as BDL and CCS were the only two remaining non hub routes and I think it was done with the same aircraft.

With Delta's flights to all of those airports once of twice a day out of BDL, and WN's 2+ flights to many of those same destinations, its very competitive. I don't thing DAL, nor WN would give up those routes. I am still hopeing US Airways, or WN comes back with the BDL-PHX flight, and COA comes back with the HOU flight, but its not likely to be soon. There is a market on these routes, but its not a huge one. Take into consideration that AAL makes a very good profit on the DFW-BDL flight, and DAL seems to be banking on its flights. I guess time will tell what will be next. It was very obvious that B6 would start this service, but after this its fair game as what is next. Could be HOU, PHX, even DAL to SLC.

The BDL-Florida routes are pretty much the only mainline P2P mainline routes left in the DL system. I assume there's a reason they've stuck around so long. I don't have any numbers to back this up, but I'd guess these are pretty high yield routes for what they are. They are almost always significantly pricier than DL flights to Florida out of the New York area airports.

On a somewhat related note... take a look at DL's fares on their BDL-ATL flights on short notice. Those fares are consistently insanely expensive. I frequently have to takes trips out of ATL back to CT with only 1-2 days notice. Being roughly equally far away from LGA and BDL, I always check both. Every time, the BDL trip was approaching $1000, if not more. Even with short notice, I could usually fly into LGA for about half of that.

Don't forget HPN! They have DL and AirTran service to ATL (granted, DL is not mainline, but the CRJ900 is not a terrible aircraft!). The competition between these two carriers keeps the fares down, somewhat...

Not surprised if AA drops SJU-BDL; they have no interest on competing w/B6.

Could someone please inform me about the extent of VFR and vacation traffic on flights to/from SJU, e.g. BDL?

I used to live at BDL, and flew AA twice to SJU. A full A300-600 and 757. To answer Pe@rson's question, there's a large Puerto Rican community in Connecticut as well as pockets of wealth that want access to the Caribbean.

I once heard that Hartford-PR is actually a bigger market than Boston-PR, not sure if that is true. But I would expect the backbone of BDL-SJU traffic will be VFR, if I had to guess 80% of passengers.

I would suspect that is true.
