Actually yes it does. If this route does happen. MANY Canadians about 40% now fly out of Buffalo to fly to warmer parts of the US. Buffalo also has cheap charters from sunwing that go to Cancun, Dominican republic, and Montego Bay.


Back to the original Instagram post: Its obviously the entire airline making a change. Some kind of image change or rebranding. JETYELLOW! Coming to your city! Okay, probly not jetyellow. But some kind of re branding is coming.

If it was merger, business news, twitter, or other social media wouldve picked up on it by now. It wouldnt be such a big secret.

Think just an Instagram promotion. Think all will be disappointed. With other social media showing nothing, thinking nothing special.

It looks like jetBlue has deleted all of the content off their Instagram profile and replaced it with a single plain white photograph with the caption, “Our pics may be gone, but your chance to win big is arriving 2.27.29”. Any idea what the “big” reveal is for?


JetBlue can no longer afford to pay for color pixels, therefore: blank screen.

It seems to me that the only people who made a big deal out of this - flying to Europe, new routes to the DR, closing LGB and what not - was on this site. All B6 did was announce a marketing promotion....if there was a 68-post thread for that every single time an airline did that, you'd never be able to find any useful info on a.net.

Neither is WOW and they fly TATL but B6 would take a significant penalty by operating TATL routes that far north.
All B6 needs to fly TATL is ETOPS 120. Even ETOPS 90 might be sufficient at first just to get to Ireland and the UK.
The airplane/engine is already certified for ETOPS 120 from the factory. I believe for the airline to obtain ETOPS 120 is a pretty quick process (less than 1 year). Given that their A321NEOs are more than a year away, they could easily have an ETOPS program in place before their first aircraft arrives.
Hawaii is a very different ball game as it requires ETOPS 180 and that's a far more stringent and lengthy certification process.

With whom, however? I don't think any of the US3 would be allowed? I might be wrong. With AS? NK? The mind reels. What exactly do you predict?

Hard to believe they delete their Instagram content for a promotion. But you never know when you put marketing people in charge of something.


The pics aren't "deleted". They're doing a promotion and the pics will reappear in a week or so.

I was thinking the same thing.... they could have just advertised on their social media platforms to get the word out..removing your content and teasing about a big announcement for an announcement that didn't even move the Richter scale :banghead: talk about missing the mark

So because the "big" announcement didn't excite you, you think B6 will merge with somebody by the end of the year? Those are not good odds.

Dropping DCA-BDL and TPA and reallocating slots for 4 more BOS-DCA. Also more BOS to NY but no specific airport cited.

I'd settle with a replacement of the chairman of the board as well as the executive team, but a merger would be welcomed by tgose of us that care about our futures

a merger would replace them all anyways i'd imagine and give a bunch of other benefits as part of the package.

merger or bust

What makes you think Jetblue needs to merge with some other airline? They still have a decent brand to protect. Alaska wouldn't be a good fit because chasing different markets, Spirit no idea why they would merge with Jetblue. United they just finished a merger no way they want to go through another one.
