I am curious if the addition of new service from SJC and SMF will affect JetBlue's OAK flights. I realize that all three cities are different markets, but there is definitely some overlap there, especially when you are attracting people with low fares.
I too was curious about that. But I've heard that the loads have been very high on the route, so hopefully some of the new flights will help relieve that high load.
As far as AA
doing something about B6
, I really don't know what else they can do. Every single other attempt to do something about JetBlue has failed. There really is nothing else that AA
can do other than add flights, lower fares, and offer more promotions. But as long as JetBlue is expanding out of NYC (where they have a very large loyalty base), AA
is going to have a tough time competing.
It's funny that American flies almost every single route JetBlue flies. I don't think that JetBlue is specifically targeting AA
, but JetBlue is the type of airline to jump on a market where you can make a lot of money, despite the competition (JFK
I really do hope that there is no loser in the situation. I do hope that both JetBlue and American can be winners at this, but we all know that airlines can be stuborn and greedy.
