JetBlue would like to fly to ORD
, but they want at least 4, if not 5 gates. ORD
doesn't have that many open gates, unless United gives some back to the airport.
I just wonder if JetBlue would be getting into a market that is already saturated. AA
already fly hourly to LGA
also fly to EWR
flies to SMR. UA
flies to JFK
flies to ISP
. ATA flies MDW
, as well as AA
still has one ORD
flight, connecting with its European departures and arrivals.
If an airline starts a new route, it wants to create traffic, and not merely take traffic from another carrier. It seems to me that there isn't a lot of traffic left to create. Supposedly, New York metro-Chicago metro is the most heavily travelled route in the world.
Considering that DL
ran JetBlue out of ATL
, I could see AA
trying to do the same at ORD
. If JetBlue does start ORD
will also start service on that route, connecting with its European, Carribean, and Latin American departures and arrivals.
