Re: American Airlines Boston LHr, CDG and other Europe.

UA and AA are token players at Logan nowadays, and I never thought I’d see myself type that. DL and B6 have grown up around them. Across my many years of business flying, I never ‘invested’ in one carrier’s FF program until two years ago when I decided that JetBlue would achieve a critical mass at L...

Re: JetBlue Network Thread - 2019

I can't help but think WN's arrival at BOS wasn't such a positive thing for them. They hold no leverage with Massport and they can't turn their planes anywhere near as fast as they might like. Plus, I see all sorts of 'bargain' fares at BOS, signaling (to me, at least) that they are pressured from a...

How likely is it that BOS gets something from ANA? We only have the JAL to NRT and I tend to think the demand for HND is equal to that, at least.
