I noticed that too, i asked the JetBlue social media team and they said they had no plans (not sure if they were actually aware) of codesharing with Silver on FLL-DAB and Silver stated the main reason for the flight had to do with people in Volusia and the surrounding counties catching cruises out of FLL
This is poor networking on the part of B6 if you ask me. This is a golden opportunity for them to claim to fly to a destination that they just announced they were closing to quite the uproar (they can essentially say they're staying). If you saw DAB's social media post the day the route cancellation was announced, it was total chaos. People were VERY upset. In addition, the lack of codesharing from both UA and B6 is going to hurt Silver's attempt at operating in DAB unless they can manage with people sticking to Silver's network alone, and I don't think the demand exists for that. They need the feed from jetBlue and United, more so United because they're in the same terminal and connections will really be easy.
However, the reason Silver gave about the cruises seems to be justifiable to at least give it a try. The flights are timed out perfectly for cruises.
I live in DAB... Have some family in NY... was a big blow when they said they were pulling out of Daytona
