JB Reaching Parity With UA/AA On SF-NY?

Mon Apr 07, 2003 3:19 pm

It seems like JetBlue is slowly moving itself into a position where it will be the number one SFO/OAK/SJC-JFK carrier... wow...

By my count, jetblue has almost as much capacity as AA and UA (individually) on the Bay Area - New York route (I assume one of the more profitable set of routes for all of them).

Jet Blue has 6 dailies from Oakland on A320s
160x6= 960 daily seats.

American has the lead, but not by that much, with 4 dailies from SFO on 762s, 2 dailies from Oakland and San Jose each on 752s
4x158+4x168= ~1300

United has 6 dailies from SFO on 762s (there might be a 763 in there some days)
6x168=~1000


By the way, does anyone know how JetBlue is handling all the passengers at Oak with all the OAK-LGB flights now? When I was there about a year ago it seemed like the lines were packed just for the JFK routes.

FYI

AA no longer operates JFK-OAK. Those flights ended last month. Instead we have JFK-SNA 3 flight a day.

Yikes. That was short-lived. I guess that cuts AAs capacity to that of UAs...

Delta Flies JFK-SFO using 767's as well. I took them recently. Flights were at least 3-4 time daily.

Currently, Delta has 2 flights daily (nonstop) JFK-SFO.

One also has to look at how many flights AA, UA and DL operate out ot EWR. JB only has flights out of JFK.
