How come AA dropped BOS-SEA and why would it work for JetBlue?
|Quoting LH423 (reply 12):|
Simply said...AS have kicked their ass. AS announced the service in co-operation with AA shortly before AA announced their own service. AS flourished starting with a daily 73G before upping it to a 739 and then adding a seasonal red-eye. I think it has to do with the fact that AS have such a loyal base in the Pacific Northwest that has made this flight so popular.

As a frequent flyer on JetBlue, I have to disagree with you FA4B6. I really think AS has a better product than B6 and have to agree with LH423 that JetBlue has not caught on with the business traveller. As I said, fly on B6 quite often, at least 3 times per month and really only see the leisure crowd so B6 will flourish in the leisure market. B6 has a good product as is expanding fast so who knows. (kind of reminds me of Air Florida in a way...remember what happened to them?) B6 has found a niche in the leisure market and should expand on that, leave the business market to the other airlines.

Do you think B6 wants to go head-to-head with America West on the BOS-PHX route? At a later date maybe. I think for starters there are other routes where they could do better, mainly SJU and SDQ.
