I think that this is an overly-simplistic conclusion. These two "vacationer" routes must not have panned out as well as hoped. However, BUR
seems to be the marquee airport on B6
for travel by entertainment industry types. Any time you see a mention of someone in The Business being on a JetBlue flight, it's coming from BUR
. I understand that the loads and yields to NYC are very good. It isn't that they're not doing well from BUR
-- it's that the type of passenger that they're attracting from BUR
isn't flying to Vegas or Orlando...
What's more interesting to me is that it appears that they are dumping the 4pm-ish LGB
flight. That leaves them with 4x BUR
and 4x LGB
. Woulda thought that LGB
would be doing better than that...
