They've been picking off their partner's Caribbean destinations one by one, so I'm not sure how close they are. I think B6 is clearly defending against NK here--whether or not AA gave them implicit or explicit approval to do so is anyone's guess.

Wow DFW, way to go!

Virgin America
Qantas
Emirates
Spirit
Jet Blue

I am surprised DFW-JFK is not the first route but I imagine it's a weak market and not one they want to waste slots on for DFW-JFK since AA only flies it one daily. I wanted to argue the competition with Spirit for DFW-LGA plays a hand but...NK will be flying DFW-BOS as well.

Maybe this will stir the rumors more

Wow, I did not see this one coming. Now I'm wondering why BOS-HOU hasn't come yet. This is obviously a reaction to NK, but NK launched LGA service also, and this route is BOS-only. Interesting they would serve one Texas city from one hub and another Texas city from another hub as well as the third Texas city with flights to both hubs.

B6 already competes with AA on every other hub route except BOS-MIA (B6 is at FLL), so I don't think that is the case. For that matter, B6 competes with all of pre-merger UA's hub flights also.

Nice to see #44, I thought it would be LGA (that should be coming soon). I'm happy to see that PVD is under review for future service as well.

They've been discussing DFW-BOS for over a year. JFK isn't as high on the radar because the DFW-New York market already has three majors offering at least dailies (AA, DL, UA) and B6 wanted to go to a less crowded market. Glad to see them in DFW and hope to see them, in a few years, at DAL

Note: I doubt LGB/LAX due to VX already serving DFW. But perhaps far in the future?

Great news for DFW... it certainly seems like some parties are smelling AA blood and trying to nip in while AA may not be so readily able to defend DFW as they have in the past. First NK with several extra destinations, now B6 finally starts DFW service. Will VX expand?

As texan (who is from New Zealand) rightly noted, DFW-BOS has been kicked around by B6 for years. The real interesting part comes in 2014, when B6 tries to start BOS/JFK/MCO-DAL.

This just made my day. Now I don't have to change terminals when I fly to PVC. Welcome Jet Blue. DAL is gate limited regardless of the Wright Amendment expiration in 2014. I sought if B6 will be coming to DAL.

These services were being talked about long before AA filed for bankruptcy, and I dare say would have been announced either way.

NK's expansion at DFW is driven by two factors:
-WIN buying FL and removing it from the market;
-The large population West of DFW that likes low fares but isn't convinced to drive to DAL to fly WN. That market was largely untapped at DFW (FL flight to ATL excepted).

As for B6, I think it was just time. DFW was one of the largest, if not the largest untapped market left, it was only a matter of time before they came in.

VX already doing it would be precisely why we would connect LGB and SFO to DFW. If for no other reason to lower the yield that VX gets on the route(s)

What makes you wonder that? I wouldn't be surprised if some deal between AA and B6 are in the works, but I don't think they would (or even could) do that.
