First question is "what competition?" United Express/ACA
has a half-dozen or so Junkstreams between JFK
, and that's about it. Given the travel time to/from both JFK
and security delays, you might as well take Amtrak; LGA
isn't a whole lot faster than the train as it is.
jetBlue's model doesn't seem to be optimized for short-haul flying; the vast majority of their routes are over 1000 miles.
