Gatwick isn't inconvenient for London - to get to Victoria you have the choice of either the slower Southern train or the Gatwick Express, or the Thameslink service to London Bridge or Kings Cross. The issue arises when there is engineering work and there is no alternative!

I agree! LGW is very convenient for London. In terms of accessibility I find LGW and LHR to be on the same level, regardless of tube access. On the other side, I find LTN extremely inconvenient because you need to catch a bus in order to go to the train station. I know for some this isn't a huge deal, but honestly after a flight I find this inconvenient. Needless to say, I find LTN to be stuck in another decade in terms of facilities etc (no offence to anyone that has LTN as their main airport!)

STN isn't that bad as well, but I believe LGW is a no brainer in comparison to LTN and STN.

It's obviously just a representation of London and not necessarily of the airport they are going to use.

Apparently you and many others never bothered to read this thread from the beginning. Gatwick's airport code does not start with LH.

It doesn't get any more obvious that it will be LHR, whether it's announced on Wednesday or at a later time.

I think he is referring to the video where LH was already in the destination box and they had "Reach for the ..." at bottom. we will see what happens, but I won't be surprised if they don't announce an airport, while keep fighting for those LHR slots.

Well patronising tw*t of the year award goes to you. I clicked the link, I see the picture with the destination set as "LH" and commented that it could be interpreted as Long Haul.

Don't fancy arguing with willy waving B6 fanboys today so i'll let you have your moment and we can pretend that LH 1000000000% means LHR :roll:

Then I'm convinced they are starting flights to Lahore, Pakistan. And the marketing about London is just a clever misleading stunt based on London's large Pakistani community.........

This is the most interesting part of the Boarding Area article...

I suppose this could all be a cruel trick from JetBlue, but I doubt it. Rumors of European service have been going on too long. One self-identified JetBlue crewmember even emailed me yesterday with the following:
Crewmember London brief has already been done. Boston to Heathrow on the A321XLR with mint configuration to start (no date set, waiting for new 321). Widebodies being looked at for fleet expansion if London is a success (330 and 787).


I would imagine with 787's and 330's, Blue is looking at more than just Europe....Japan maybe?

So you were 'foolish and ridiculous' enough to miss the 'LH" + "R." That, plus my point about the tube not going to LGW, seals the deal. If they wanted to represent 'London' in a general sense
they'd have picked from any number of equally subtle icons.

Announcing an airline purcthase would hardly be cause for a party. Quite the opposite in fact.

No merger or acquisition in the history of aviation, has ever been loved by those on a seniority list.


And...?


What is unclear?

The likelihood that this party has anything to do with a merger - as many have speculated - is almost zero.

My psychic powers tell me with 99.99999 percent certainty this "party" is to announce the decision to modify some future 321 orders to the long range option and commitment to start flying to Europe. Also predict the subfleet that flys to Europe will be premium heavy.

NO ONE is going to be surprised on the 10th.

After that, I assume any of these 3 will be likely.
CDG
AMS
DUB

And further down the road, not likely on this announcement though
BCN
MAN
BHX
EDI
SNN
FCO
GRU/GIGI/EZE out of FLL

After creeping on this forum for the last 18 months, I finally decided to join after reading this post... I’m a Wall Street analyst covering the commercial aviation industry, and I won’t say which firm as I simply can’t disclose that information.... but the writing on the wall couldn’t be any more clear. If people read through the forums, or access the external sites (which in this case was put out by JetBlue itself), it is clear they are insinuating flights to London, and shooting for London Heathrow (unless factors have prevented them from going to LHR, I agree any LON airport is possible, but they are striving for LHR)... based on a confluence of factors, this conclusion can easily be drawn (the first two letters of the IATA code put into the ‘destination field’ on the app are “LH”; B6 has stated the largest unserved market out of BOS is LON; the background of the invitation for their big announcement ceremony matches the fabric on the London tube... Come on people, connect the dots and quit spinning all the conspiracies....

I agree... if European flying for B6 is an ambition, they need to have a presence in the largest leisure/business markets... as well as some unserved markets (which aren’t served from Boston)- LON, PAR, AMS, DUB, MAD, FCO, FRA, MUC, MAN, BHX?, GVA?, BRU?

For all the speculation, would there be enough time for airbus to deliver that “new tail” A321Neo (without engines) that was photographed last month in Hamburg to JFK for the party? Curious “if” there is some European announcement if there was enough room in the JFK hangar to drop the curtain on an airplane kinda thing as a surprise.

It doesn't get any more obvious that it will be LHR, whether it's announced on Wednesday or at a later time.


I personally read absolutely every thread from the very start so that I'm fully upto scratch with what's being discussed unlike many on here who jump in halfway or at the very end and ask or post information that's already been discussed, something that annoys me intensely as I personally find it lazy!

I'm absolutely aware of the London airport codes especially London Heathrow Airport which is only sixty miles from my front door.

I'm afraid that your totally jumping the gun with your reference to the use of LH, your the one making an assumption that it obviously refers to LHR!

No one knows what JetBlue are going to announce in their press release that's shortly to be announced if they did we would be discussing that not what the use of LH actually means.

You know just as much as anyone else does on these forums regarding JetBlue and their interest in going Transatlantic, no one knows anything definite at this stage except the higher management at JetBlue.

The CEO had an interview with Business Traveler a few weeks ago where he stated that obviously LHR would be the airline's preferred option but the appropriate slots would be hard to come by and although LGW was the second preferred option the slots available weren't at the times sufficient to plan a full schedule which left STN as a possible option due to the available slots.

His words not mine.

I'm sure if you do a search online you can read the article for yourself.

I will will say it again but I honestly think that STN is the best option if and when JetBlue finally make an announcement regarding going transatlantic and their airport of choice for London.

But they wouldn't announce that tomorrow. Tomorrow if they're indeed announcing London service it will be LHR.
It doesn't mean that a few months or a year down the road they won't go back on it and says something like "we couldn't get appropriate slots at LHR so we chose to start at LTN/LGW". But there's no way, after all the LHR hints that they are saying anything but Heathrow tomorrow

My theory from the very beginning is that they will serve all 3 (LHR, LGW, STN), but not right away. That's how they serve "Los Angeles" from both BOS and JFK and I anticipate that they'll use the same strategy to London due to the scarcity of slots at both LHR and LGW. STN as the sole destination to London would never work, it simply doesn't work. All one has to do is look at the number of airlines serving that market to/from the U.S.

I also think a lot of people here will be very disappointed. As usual, a.net is blowing this announcement way out of proportion. Jetblue does not have the planes or the slots so there will be no schedule announcement. IMO the announcement will be a mere communication of their intent, and little more.

On the topic of which airport to serve, I think STN is out of question for now. The reason is people here don't really know about STN. There have been service from NYC/BOS to LHR/LGW for a long time, so I personally don't think LGW is a bad choice. In the end, B6 is concerned about US point of sale, so even if STN is convenient for many Londoners, it's not really relevant.

Also, I think they won't announce an airport tomorrow. It will just be we are serving London and still looking for slots.

Serious question...would it be impossible for them to have been working on etops certification without telling the public? Or would they have given it away because it would have become public record with the different government certification processes.

There have been a few mentions in the past (including in this exact thread), that B6 has already been working on their ETOPS program. How much truth there is in that I don't know but I think it's plausible.

I mean if they announce their ETOPS program will be done by the end of this year....that's going to be pretty crazy.

A photo of an employee pin ‘JetBlue -London’ for tomorrow’s announcement is floating around social media.

Maybe JetBlue Airways will have ONLY Mint Service on all of their routes. :-)
Why endure the nightmare and congestion of LAX when BUR, LGB, ONT & SNA is so much easier to fly in and out of. Same with OAK & SJC when it comes to SFO.

Can you post a pic?

I mean it's not a shocker. LON is kind of a given.

Do they really want to "bite the hand that feeds them" by going to DUB? Wouldn't that blow up the EI-B6 alliance, or at least strain things a bit?


They’d be nuts not to go BOS > DUB at some stage , lots of flights at the moment and still not enough seats during peak season , no taxes , quick turn around , it’s a cash cow , perfect use for a single frame .... wouldn’t be surprised to see EI code share on a BOS service if the oneworld psychos don’t clamp down , lots more feed for EI EU flights ... it’s a win win for JetBlue and EI

Interesting. The "jet" in jetBlue is gray on that picture, which went away with the logo change years ago. There's been a big push to remove that logo from everything at JetBlue, so the fact that it would make it into a pin announcing London is surprising.

I'd never visited their website in my life until today. LHR came up before I'd typed anything.

Milan too.

Just go to "Regions" on the "Where from" box and click "Europe".

Edit to add: I call BS on Bergen (BGO), Trondheim (TRD), and many other destinations mentioned in Europe. No way JetBlue going to fly THEIR metal there.

If you notice the triangle next to the city as you type it in, you'll see that's on a partner airline. As to why it showed up before typing anything I have no idea.
