A few interesting markets B6 should consider:

Cologne/Bonn (CGN)
Prague (PRG)
Düsseldorf (DUS)
Geneva (GVA)
Berlin (TXL)

All of these are a good mix of business and tourist traffic with very limited non-seasonal connectivity to North America.

Exciting times ahead!


Prague certainly not. PRG is seasonal, tourist heavy, with very limited business demand and that market is sufficiently well served with DL and UA in the NY Area market (seasonally). The rest of those markets are also not likely B6 candidates. If JetBlue goes deeper into Europe, they'll likely go to Spain, Italy, France.


Just curious - is that your impression of Prague or is this driven by data you have seen? The number of business pax transferring to North America via LHR, FRA, AMS, ZRH, CDG, VIE and MUC on any given day is in the hundreds or lower thousands (and vice-versa). And while tourism peaks in the summer, it is very strong throughout the year. Yes, I understand they will evaluate leading markets first but am not sure why the A321XLR could not open new markets like this one, where competition is limited.

Exciting! LRs then XLRs. I would love a Mint LGB-BOS-LHR or LGW.

Yes, I dream of Mint at LGB. Yields say otherwise... :cry2:

The A220 top off is very interesting. I didn't expect that prior to EIS.

Lightsaber


I dream of someone finally going away & LGB being allowed to open more slots for B6 to truly expand & yields improve.

I’m curious to see the config. I think it would be wild if they put a mint type product in an A220. Maybe 6 or 10 seats.
Welcome to Nothingburgers. May I take your order?

That leaves Jetblue with 50 options for A220s. I am curious to see how many will be 100s. I don't think it will be that many but I do think they need a few. I also wouldn't be surprised to see a mint-like product on the A220 in limited numbers. I think a mint "lite" product will work well for Jetblue

Could the 321XLR open the door for a B6 JFK-NRT nonstop?

Yeah, If you flew it with 3 passengers maybe.

Even then it’s still like.... 1500 miles short. It’s not even close to being a thing.
