I doubt it.. too close to BOS which is a prime city for them

B6 would be nice at MHT but I just don't see it quite yet.

As is OAK, but they are going to fly from SFO, too close to OAK.
Same can be said of LGA, EWR, SWF, and HPN vis-a-vis JFK.

Not even close to being the same travel wise. MHT grew directly to take business away from BOS. With jetBlue's market out of BOS they can offer no new cities that would make it worth picking one city over the other..

I'm no expert, but I'd say with B6 starting service to PWM only eight months ago, that MHT is too close-by in proximity? (75 miles by air, vs. 1 1/2 hours by car) I question whether B6 coming to both cities would also hurt load factors for the carrier at PWM and MHT, as the catchment area for a lot of the passengers would be overlapping in parts of Southern Maine and Easter and Northern New Hampshire?
