Jet Blue To Nassau, Bahamas

Wed Sep 01, 2004 12:44 am

I Just did a search on this and am amazed that it didnt come up.

I was looking on jet blues website and noticed that they are going to start service to Nassau on November 1, 2004. Outbound flight departs at 8am return departs at 1150 am.

The search feature should have come up with something, because this has been discussed a lot. When jetBlue announced JFK-NAS, Song announced the service on the same day.

MAH, you sure? I checked Nassau and NAS but neither came up. Also, it was announced yesterday so how much could it have been discussed?

Yeah, I'm sure. The search feature on this website isn't the best, IMO.

The service wasn't announced yesterday, it was announced earlier in August. Yesterday, jetBlue announced that they would start selling tickets.

Will the DirecTV IFE work on the NAS flights?

Actually it will depend on the routing of the aircraft to NAS. As with our other flights to the islands after you go 100 or more miles offshore the PTVs aren't much good as there is no signal to the dish.

I believe (little birdys spreading the word) there are plans in the works right now for something as B6 seems to be finding a happy following in the islands and they'd like to have movies or something for those flights since signal for the PTVs is not avlb.

It will be fully available. DirecTv service is available throughout the upper Bahamas, and DirecTv actually has a huge customer base in Nassau and Freeport, as it is well within signal.
