I wonder if JetBlue will ever start (seasonal) BOS/JFK-PVR. Seems there is plenty demand
I agree. Honestly, it surprises me that BOS has only 2 destinations in Mexico, I think another destination such as PVR could do very good from BOS.
Add SJD as well. The numbers are there for either route to be served weekly from BOS. PVR/SJD had bigger numbers in 2011 than UVF/POP/BGI (slightly higher than PVR) /LIR and are now all served.
When B6 BOS-LIR was announced I thought B6 BOS-SJD was going to happen sooner rather than later since its a 2300mi niche route. The extra 200 miles must be a turn-off to B6 - that's the only way I can explain it.
For the legacies - better off going 1400-2000 miles to Caribbean destinations - better RASM by far.
Besides distance there's another problem with SJD - late December and January is somewhat a cooler time there. Its not as warm as the Caribbean both air/water.
EDIT: Also out of the top 10 CSA's in the USA, BOS/PHL/MIA do not have SJD/PVR service. WAS only has SJD but at both IAD and BWI.
