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.
