Westjet has said that it will be flying to the States within a year. JetBlue has been rumoured to be flying to Canada soon.
There is some history between Westjet and JetBlue in that David Neeleman (if I'm not mistaken) was part of Westjet in their earlier years. JetBlue installed DirectTV on its aircraft, and Westjet has followed suit and will be doing the same starting in the fourth quarter of 2003.
Having said that, I'm going to speculate a little bit..
JetBlue starts flights to Westjets hub in YYC. JetBlue offers connecting flights within Canada on Westjet aircraft. Westjet starts flights to JetBlue's hub in LGB. Westjet offers connecting flights within the States on JetBlue aircraft. You see what I'm getting at? You could also add in flights to Westjets eastern hub in YHM and JetBlue's eastern hub at JFK.
Both of these airlines offer similar customer service and (soon) inflight entertainment. Would if be financially feesible for an "alliance" to form? There is no such LCC alliance in the world, so this would be a first.
