JETBLUE EXPANDS IN BOSTON; BOARDS MILLIONTH CUSTOMER

-- Low-fare Carrier Celebrates First Anniversary at Logan this week with
New Flights to Florida; Two New Cities to be Announced on Friday --


New York, NY (January 5, 2005) - JetBlue Airways [Nasdaq: JBLU] welcomed its millionth Boston customer aboard over the holidays and is adding new flights this week to Florida for the winter season. The low-fare airline celebrates its first anniversary at Logan International Airport on Friday, January 7, and will announce two new cities to be served from Boston.

Tomorrow, on January 6, JetBlue will add a second daily roundtrip between Boston and Fort Myers, Fl and a third daily roundtrip between Boston and Tampa, Fl. On January 10, a fourth daily roundtrip between Boston and Fort Lauderdale, Fl will be added, along with a fifth daily roundtrip between Boston and Orlando, Fl. Also, on February 3, a third daily roundtrip between Boston and Fort Myers, Fl will be added. With this additional service, JetBlue will offer 17 daily roundtrips between Boston and Florida. From Logan, JetBlue also serves LA/Long Beach and Oakland, CA, and Denver, CO.

“Thanks a million, Boston!” said David Neeleman, JetBlue's Chairman and CEO. “What a wonderful milestone to enjoy as we commemorate our first anniversary at Logan this week. We’re adding new flights to our Florida destinations based on strong demand and, on Friday, we’ll announce two new cities to celebrate our first year of Boston service.”

JetBlue is a low-fare, low-cost passenger airline, which provides high-quality customer service. JetBlue operates a fleet of 69 new Airbus A320 aircraft and plans to add 15 additional A320s and 7 Embraer E190s to its fleet in 2005. Based at New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, JetBlue currently operates 276 flights a day and serves 30 destinations in 12 states, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and The Bahamas.

If SJC is added from Boston, I bet JFK gets a second flight there as well.

The 2 new destinations will most likely be PBI and SJU, on account of PBI being the only FL destination that they do not serve from BOS, and SJU is overpriced and has a lot of demand.

If not, then I'd expect new flights out west, but not just from BOS...

There is a top exec with Jet Blue that has a home in Santa Fe, our local paper reported about a month ago that ABQ was on the list for Jet Blue.

I hope so, I really like them!!

FA4B6:

To a certain extent PBI is seasonal, however there is a lot of year round business to the Northeast. B6 runs 5 - 7 nonstops from PBI to JFK in the summer depending on load requirements and up to 14 per day this winter season. BOS - PBI is a perfect fit for B6 espicially with Song's 3 flights year round between BOS and PBI. American has 3 BOS PBI flights in the season but none in the summer. B6 would no doubt go year round aginst Song.
PBI is South Florida's BEST airport!

reading all this i'm sure PBI is one of them. adding PBI will complete the florida cities we fly too from BOS. the only other city i can imagine we fly to from BOS would either be LAS, SEA, and to a certain extent SAN. (wasn't SONG suppose to drop their BOS-LAS?) i have had many passengers on my BOS-LGB flights who actually drive all the way from SD county. if it is a west coast city...at least there's another option for that city to fly on us instead of just only JFK.

B6FA4ever ...

Im pretty sure though that AA dropped their nonstops from BOS-SJC and it just seems like a logical next step for us ... as does BOS-LAS. But now that you have mentioned BOS-SAN, that also makes sense as youre right, a lot of our LGB-BOS pax do ask about that.

How long have you been at jB?

With the cost of fuel being so high I would imagine that maybe B6 is looking to do more medium to short haul routes, even with the price of fuel going down it's still pretty high.

I'm guessing PBI and SJU are likely canidates I would guess more along the lines of JFK and IAD being added to Boston's route map. Boston has now at least 15 or so flights but with limited access to parts and supplies from JFK it would make sense to add JFK flights even if only one or two a day, and the same applies for IAD. Any needed supplies that come from JFK have to be sent to an out-station and transfered to IAD or BOS. Kind of the round about way to do things.

DH just started doing IAD-BOS with the A319 so that market is there.

We all know the market is there for NYC-BOS. The real question is could B6 tap both markets - especially getting people to travel to JFK vs LGA to take a Blue Shuttle to BOS...

PBI is very seasonal and BOS-SJU is overserved, no?

PBI, as stated above, can be successful year around. It has been "proven" by Song, and your many flights do very nicely between JFK-PBI all year, right? However, BOS-FLL hasn't been the strongest market, so perhaps PBI isn't the best guess. But one would guess that JetBlue would want to link all their Florida markets to BOS, right? I could go either way on that route prediction...

As far as SJU, the only airline that serves it is AA, correct? If not currently flying it, I know US used to operate BOS-SJU. But in any case, JetBlue will come in, lower fares, and stimulate demand -- as shown in every single other market they have entered...

If not SJU, then I would assume something else in the Caribbean. NAS has been seeing very nice loads -- especially the last few days -- from JFK TO the island...which is surprising as there is virtually no traffic from the citizens of the Bahamas. Therefore, I don't see why BOS wouldn't work out.

Another scenario could be more North California flying. SMF is a very strong possibility as B6 has made it publicly known that they are looking to fly BOS-SMF sometime in the future. If BOS-SMF is announced, I would also assume FLL-OAK and SJC-IAD to be announced. This prediction is on account of what happened last year around this time (IAD-SMF, JFK-SJC, BOS-OAK were all announced).

I dont think that just because JFK-NAS and JFK-SJU and JFK-PBI are successful for B6, that automatically they'll be equally as successful for B6 at BOS.

But maybe you're right -- we shall soon see.

FA4B6:

BOS-OAK is already serving the "bay area". look how long it took for us to start service to SJC from JFK. yes the loads are doing quite well (though its only one flight a day) but we're already gonna be adding a 3rd BOS-OAK flight. i believe that should do us well for right now. (i see SMF-BOS first before SJC since SJC is in close proximity to OAK for people to get to.) thats why i mentioned LAS or SAN would be better because of the connectors going through LGB to LAS or people driving to/from SAN.

i also don't see BOS-JFK/IAD just yet. not till we get the E190's. it would be great for those flights right now because of the connecting possibilities in JFK for those pax. but to much compition along those route to run it profitably w/ the A320.

(ok as my mind just wondered....) there were those rumors about BOS-PHX....hmmm....any thoughts on that?!? *LOL*

I think the BOS-SJU might work out because only AA and US are running that rout now (I know those two are but there might be others)

The BOS-JFK has been brought up before and it doesn't seem like it will work with the A320's. Maybe the E-190's when they arrive.

BOS-LAS seems like it is a good market to announce because JFK-LAS is doing pretty good so that doesn't only mean NY wants to go to LAS. Maybe people from Boston want to fly there too.

BOS-PBI it might happen. It is mostly a seasonal route you are right. That is tough because is jetBlue going for the full NY and Boston to Florida or are they not.

jetBlue could also introduce a new city that they don't serve. They might pick BOS-RDU or BOS-IAH/HOU or maybe another Florida city like JAX or MLB.

BOS-PHX probably not because they probably aren't going to expand there because of WN and HP.

I guess we will have to wait until Friday!  Crying  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I know that jetBlue doesn't have hubs or banks persay, however, I think one 'Bus per day, until the Embraers arrive, might be a good idea BOS-JFK. That flight, of course, would be timed to connect with the outbound evening flights from JFK to the West Coast, and the JFK-BOS leg would be timed in the morning to connect from jetBlue's litany of red-eye flights into JFK. Certainly, the Embraer's would be better for the job, however, jetBlue does not have that luxury just yet. JFK-IAD, however, would not be such a good idea, because only a Blue Chips and DirecTV freak would fly IAD-JFK-SAN, for example, when there are plenty of other options on low-fare carriers, to say nothing of the legacies.

If it's SAN, I wonder whether AA will put up a fight on the route--they only have one flight a day. Yields must be good, however, since they use a 738 and not a 757.

If you think about it the BOS-LGB can't run with a full plane of passengers and it can't run with heavy headwind. So BOS-SAN is probably strething it a little too much. It is from one corner to the opposite when the A320 isn't meant for that long of a trip with passengers. I don't think that will happen.

I know this is a little off topic but I didn't want to start a new topic. Why is B6 in the international terminal at BOS?It would actually work if they expand to the Bahamas or Dominican Republic, not saying that they would or should. Is it because BOS had no space? Do people who fly B6 (and NWA) get to take a separate path around customs or something else? Sorry to be off topic.

Exactly. I think I heard that when DL moves to Terminal A I think we're inline for a lot of gates at Terminal C. Terminal E is relatively easy ... just as go through security our gates are right there and its not a very long walk to baggage claim.

Terminal E is a little dumpy though.

It is most probably because of lack of gate space in Logan. It is a pretty compact airport. Though, on a side note, flights to Nassau (as well as Freeport, Aruba, Bermuda, and Shannon, Ireland) do not require international gates.

I work on the Terminal A Project and it is going very well. We are in schedule. The terminal will open in July. I will try to get some photos. I am badged.

As for JetBlue, congrats. I never flown it. BOS to LAS I fly Song. I really hope they continue the service. I planned to visit my family in Oakland on JetBlue

The more I think about it, the more convinced I am that PBI will be started. JetBlue would LOVE to pounce on the opportunity to compete on yet another route with Song as long as they know that they can do it profitably (and they obviously can). Also, B6 now has 2 gates at PBI. They're definitely not at full utilization as their maximum amount of flights this winter is 13x to JFK.

While I think that SMF is a good possibility, I don't think it would be the best route for JetBlue to start right now. SMF still is seeing weak loads to IAD, and I'd assume that BOS would be even weaker as BOS-LGB/OAK isn't as profitable as IAD-LGB/OAK (a simple look at walk-up fares on the majority of days will show IAD being fuller, and the yields are just about the same, if not lower at BOS). However, if it's a redeye, I guess it couldn't hurt...

In the event USAirways colapses maybe a BOS-LGA/JFK then finally B6's disjointed route network will come together. The people of Boston will have easy access to the Hub at JFK and the entire Jetblue system.

Terminal will open on March 16 I have heard, just for Shuttle flights though (maybe Connection since they're in the main concourse). I would assume the satellite might be July, but Delta's website says March 2005, and there are strong rumours of it being the 16th.

I'm hoping its SAN too, we really need an additional flight to Boston, the loads on AA are good for the high fares they are charging, but its not efficient.

Distance shouldn't matter as SAN is closer to BOS than Long Beach - San Diego lies east of LA and LB.

BOS-LGB = 4,187 km

BOS-SAN = 4,165 km

Hummm I'll check on the date. Maybe I read a date for something else. I will get you the proper actual date tomorrow from the contract it's self. Remember my company is the contractor. We will still be on site after the project opens. It is not 'finished' to us until the punchlist is done and the client is satisified. Then it's off to terminal E to repair that mess.

Honestly, if it is, I don't think AA will stay on the route much longer. jetBlue will kill the yields.

Umm for the sixth city, can you say MIA??????? Long been a rumored
destination. Would make perfect sense to expand their markets from
the NorthEast. BOS/MIA and JFK/MIA would fit very nicely into the
route system

US have such a huge presence here in BOS, if they (god forbid) didnt survive then Terminal B would be a super place to gets those Embraers flying! I flew BOS-OAK-BOS with B6 last memorial day weekend - very impressed, that DirectTV just means i cant sleep on any of their flights!

I do think that LAS is a very notable exception to their routes from BOS so thats my choice....
Next Flight: DUB-BOS (EI), BOS-DEN-PDX (SWA), SEA-BOS (AS)

It is almost definitley going to be Miami...MIA officials and jetBlue have been talking about it for a while now, and things are definitley moving nicely. The launch routes would likely be 3/4 daily MIA-JFK runs, and a daily MIA-BOS run, though IAD has been talked about too. It would be nice if MIA-BOS was announced this Friday, although I doubt it will be. I would say BOS-LAS and BOS-PBI.

MIA will probably be announced in February or March because they did say late winter '05 so... MIA would be great for a BOS run too along with the JFK flights. Tomorrow is the day of the announcement!!

I just got out a meeting. Substanal completion date is March 9th. First flight is indeed March 16th. We will be on site after until July or whenever to satisify our client. Anything for Delta. It has been a pleasure serving them and building this lovely terminal for them.

I still think LAS because on the website when you click on the drop-down menu LAS is a choice but it is a connection in LGB. That might mean they are working for a non-stop.
Just my guess! I hope for PBI too.

JetBlueAtJFK,

It has been like that since February or so of 04. IAD-LAS has been an option since LGB-IAD/LAS was launched too, and there currently isn't a non-stop flight. However, I'm sure if B6 sees a large amount of people flying BOS-LGB-LAS, then they'll start it. I actually think LAS is very likely...but only a redeye flight.

RE: B6 Expands In BOS, Boards One Millionth Pax

The fares via LGB have been pretty rediculous unfortunately so i dont know would it be much of a marketing tool for them when America West are offering pretty good direct one way fares.

Terminal E is a little dumpy though

Actually, they just got done renovating Terminal E recently and it's a lot nicer. Now, they just need to do something with Terminal D as it is a lot worse than Terminal E was (unless they already renovated it). Anyone wknow what they plan to do with Terminal D?

As for new B6 routes, I would think that PBI would probably be a good choice as it seems to be a big destination in southern New England. It was one of the top 5 most popular destinations not served nonstop from PVD, so I would think the route could do very well out of BOS. LAS and SAN would be nice to have as well.

I do not know what, if anything, they plan to do with D. Being it is strictly Air Tran right now, and they are doing well, who knows? I know American had planned to do something with their gates but Sept.11 th killed that. E was renovated, however, the project was not completed. I do not all the details but I can tell you it was a mess. I believe Massport asked the previous contractor to leave the project. The bid went out for a new General Contractor/CM to come in and finish the project. My company was awarded that bid and we will begin work soon.

Terminal E departures was opened in May of 2003. I flew NW the first Thrusday it was open. Arrivals was supposed to be completed sometime this year. I assume that will not be happening now?

Looks like I was right! *does a lil dance*

B6 announces that they are adding BOS-LAS, BOS-SJC, and a second JFK-SJC. Press releases to be out shortly.

This is great news for San Jose but I cant help but wonder when SEA and SLC will get second dailies from JFK.
