MSY has been on B6's route network since July 2002, and it hasn't seen much growth at all. Currently the airline offers 2 flights to MSY from their JFK hub, and from what I've heard, they have excellent loads on both flights.
My question is: Why doesn't B6 expand at MSY? They could easily add a 3rd flight to JFK, and even start service to upstate NY when the E190's come in. I could also see them being successful to OAK, BOS, IAD, and ONT/LGB. I know that WN has a large presence there, but I used to live in New Orleans, and WN's presense has never been too large.
Has anyone heard anything about new B6 service to MSY? What are your thoughts about this - would JetBlue be successful if they made MSY a larger operation?
Any comments and feedback and welcomed and encouraged.
