Grand Rapids, Michigan was on the original list for JBU but never saw service, so I imagine that if that area continues to grow the way it has over the last decade, GRR will see 190 service. I think that there were a few other cities that were on the intended destinations list but did not get service, I'll look into it.
As far as a base, the midcontinent idea sounds like a good plan, especially with STL
now without a major hub operation, and I think that although the infrastructure isn't there, MSY
wouldn't be half bad if JBU continued to expand in the Caribbean Mexico and Central America. I remember a thread on a proposed mega airport for the New Orleans area, but those plans sounded doubtful at best. Still, if that ever went through it'd be a great place for JBU. One thing is for sure, I can't see 100+ more planes based out of JFK
