You can go to the Bureau of Transportation Statistics and look at the on time summary statistics for B6 in AUS to determine how many flights B6 operated in and out of AUS for the month.
Choose "origin Airport" and when that screen comes up, enter AUS for the airport and JetBlue for the airline in the drop-down tables. Then enter your date range. (ex: January 19 through January 31, 2006). The table that comes up will sub total B6 flights at the bottom (51) That's how many departures B6 operated from AUS in January.
Then go back and do the same thing only this time choose "destination airport" and repeat the above process. B6 had 52 arrivals at AUS in January for a total of 103 total flights.
Multiply 103 total flights by 100 seats on each flight and you come up with 10,300 available B6 seats in and out of AUS during the month of January.
Then, you can go here to see how many B6 passengers traveled in and out of AUS by month. In January, B6 flew 6,406 passengers in and out of AUS.
6,405 passengers flown divided by 10,300 available seats = 62.18% load factor - not bad for the first 13 days of new service by a new carrier.
Statistics for February show much improvement.
There were 112 departures and 112 arrivals for a total of 224 JetBlue flights at AUS in February which translates into 22,400 available seats. JetBlue carried 17,1777 passengers at AUS in February.
17, 177 passengers divided by 22,400 available seats = 76.68% B6 AUS load factor for February.
Historically, January and February aren't busy months for AUS, but March is usually the second or third busiest month, so it will be interesting to see what B6's AUS loads are for March. Should be about another month before that info comes out.

AUS-SEA could be another good potential market for B6.
|Quoting WMUPilot (Reply 3):|
AUS will be recieving an A320 turn this month I believe.
|Quoting Dolphinflyer (Reply 4):|
AUS-SEA could be another good potential market for B6. With over 150 PPDEW and no present nonstop service, 1-2 daily nonstop flights on the route should perform well, esp. using the E190 a/c.
|Quoting WMUPilot (Reply 5):|
The E190s won't be making an apperance on the west coast until we can work out all the software issues with the plane. But I have heard rumors that with in the next 3 or 4 years they may start making their way out ot California. Nothing concrete yet though.
