Thu Oct 13, 2005 8:29 am

well with all the other announcements that came out yesterday regarding RIC, AUS, et al...i was doing a little inquiry at jetblue.com and checking airfares...looks like OAK-FLL will be offered nonstop starting Jan 19th.

Thu, 19 Jan 06
Flight 270 11:55 pm Depart Oakland, CA (OAK)
8:15 am Arrive Ft Lauderdale, FL (FLL)(next day)

Thu, 19 Jan 06
Flight 271 7:30 pm Depart Ft Lauderdale, FL (FLL)

Excellent news! I've been waiting for this flight...it was merely a matter of time. Glad to see B6 continuing expansion at OAK.

I'm glad to see expansion in FLL!

I sure hope that JetBlue will announce it - and expand even more in FLL!

Well it is official. It is now on the Route Map!
Here is the Press Release:

JetBlue Introduces New Coast-To-Coast Service

-- Oakland Becomes the Second West Coast Destination for Fort Lauderdale
Sale Fares Start at $89(a) Each Way --
New York, NY (October 13, 2005) -- JetBlue Airways (Nasdaq: JBLU) today announced it will begin service between Fort Lauderdale, Fla. and Oakland, Calif. starting Jan. 19, 2006 with one daily flight each way. With this route, customers in South Florida will have seven nonstop destinations on the low-fare airline, and Bay Area customers will have a fifth nonstop option on JetBlue. This route will be served by the airline’s A320 aircraft.

JetBlue will offer an introductory sale fare between Oakland and Fort Lauderdale of $89(a) each way. This sale fare must be purchased by October 31, 2005, for travel between January 19 and February 14, 2006. Regular fares in this market will range between $149(a) to $349(a) each way. Round trip purchase is never required on JetBlue.

“There has been tremendous customer response to our nonstop service between Fort Lauderdale and Long Beach, so it makes sense to offer more nonstop, low-fare service from South Florida to the West Coast,” said JetBlue’s CEO David Neeleman. “It’s just our way of making Florida a JetBlue state.”

In addition to announcing this second West Coast destination from Florida, JetBlue currently offers the most flights of any airline between Florida and New York, the airline’s hometown, and will have up to 76 flights for customers by Thanksgiving.

JetBlue offers the most nonstop flights between New York City and the West Coast, including destinations in California. With this new service to South Florida, Northern Californians will have five nonstop destinations on JetBlue.

JetBlue’s new schedule:

Fort Lauderdale (FLL) to Oakland, CA (OAK) Oakland to Fort Lauderdale
Daily service begins 1/19/06
Depart - Arrive Depart - Arrive
7:30pm – 10:55pm 11:55pm – 8:15am


JetBlue is a low-fare, low-cost passenger airline, which provides high-quality customer service. JetBlue operates a fleet of 82 new Airbus A320s and plans to add three additional A320s and eight EMBRAER 190s to its fleet in 2005. Based at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport, JetBlue currently operates 304 flights a day and serves 33 destinations in 14 states, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and The Bahamas.

All JetBlue aircraft feature roomy leather seats; all equipped with an in-seat digital entertainment system offering 36 channels of free DIRECTV® programming – no other airline offers more live satellite TV options. On flights longer than two hours, a selection of first-run movies and bonus features from FOX InFlight™ is also available.(b)

With JetBlue, all seats are assigned, all travel is ticketless, all fares are one-way, and an overnight stay is never required. For more information, schedules and fares, please visit www.jetblue.com or call JetBlue reservations at 1-800-JETBLUE (538-2583), 1-888-538-2583 if calling from Puerto Rico, or 1-200-9898 if calling from the Dominican Republic.

Why do I have a nagging feeling AA is going to wait and see how B6 does on the route. At that point if it proves well AA would start a 737-800 on SFO-FLL.

Yes! AA will start it and Song will add more flights on SFO-FLL to.

If they did, well wow. I don't think they would ever but you could only imagine what would happen. I wonder what B6 would do. They would either add more flights to everywhere and have much more marketing. Or if B6 moved over to SFO, lololol, but that would never happen.

I thought the same thing...or I can see AA adding more non-stops SFO-MIA. Who knows!

A fourth daily MIA-SFO flight, with a 738, is tentatively set for next spring, though way too early to tell if it goes through.

That would be great as the three current ones are fairly well booked.

Mark, off topic, any word on SAN/SEA/PHX-MIA?

Mark, any word on a possible FLL-SFO on US? I know that it was floated around but have not heard any buzz lately.

Nothing that hasn't been stated. All will likely happen in the near term future, but I don't have a timeline. MIA-PHX is the most likely to come first, though.

HP management isn't very fond of the FLL focus city, so there hasn't been much talk lately about adding FLL service.

I think I mentioned this on another thread. What's next for B6 out of OAK? OAK-EWR? OAK-MCO?

I do believe song will retaliate with FLL-SFO 2X daily and in a similiar announcement upgrade LAS and/or LAX to 2X daily.

Yea, I can sea OAk-MCO coming on but OAK-EWR will probably not be for a while. I see EWR as being just Fl for a good amount of time.

I think B6 will do well on the OAK-FLL route. Maybe they'll had a daytime nonstop in the not-to-distant future. Although, that might have to wait until T2's renovation is complete and open.

I would love to see JetBlue add flights from MCO-OAK and add a second flight from FLL-OAK.

Song announced double-daily FLL-LAX a few months ago.
