I have a feeling that DEN will be seeing a lot more of B6 in the very near future.
I actually have a complete opposite feeling. I really don't think DEN
will be seeing any more B6
future in the near future...actually one of the execs said that there will be no more expansion there.
JetBlue's flights already aren't performing too well on JFK
. If you look, B6
is offering the Free Friend Fare on both DEN
routes. Say if you wanted to fly between BOS
tomorrow, or vice versa. I just checked a few minutes ago, and the fare was $89 on each flight. $89 is not only the BASE FARE on that flight, but it's also the base SALE fare. Therefore, I can only imagine how many people are on that flight. If I were to make an educated guess, I would think it's going out with under 80 passengers. I'm sure a B6
employee has the exact number.
However, I should admit that this isn't the fairest of all ways to judge a route. I know that DEN
does excellently in the summer, on the other hand. But I don't think great summer loads would cancel out the weak winter season for B6
Another reason I don't see B6
operations is, 1.) F9
, an airline with a very similar product, has a base there, and; 2.) The airport fees are VERY high because it's a new, extremely modern and technologically advanced airport.
Just my input.
