What are everyone's thoughts on this? Will this bring better service to SJU?

If they can treat jetblue like royalty then it will work.

I think midsized airports really have to cater to a single airline in order to get the most service as possible. Places like NYC and LAX have so much demand for traffic that a carrier doesnt need to have a fortress hub to survive there. Will the prices be slightly higher with only one dominant carrier? Yes, but what is the alternative? A marginal amount of service from several airlines.

Yes, CUN is one of the 13 Mexican airports handled by ASUR.
