As I said before, you people asked why B6 is keeping some of these routes around. I said they want to keep these routes along for a time when A220 becomes available and attention shifts away from Boston. Obviously, some markets are underperforming to the piont they don't even want to wait for 2 or 3 more years.
In another 2 or 3 years, they will shift their focus back to FLL and have A220s around. We will see what they add. B6 is far from done with its FLL station.
And B6's biggest competition in South Florida is NK, not AA. AA has plenty to worry on its own hand with DL/Latam partnership.
So, B6 is dropping flights to BGI and reducing to POS because of an airline that serves neither destination? Anyway, this decision to drop BGI and reduce POS significantly came after AA increased frequencies on both but NK I guess.
I mean according to some, B6 is supposedly eating AA’s lunch out of MIA (which is why B6 is dropping some routes?), and the A220 is the magic touch which will soon turn underperforming routes around.

I understand that you are not happy that I keep telling the world that AA's JFK cuts are real, but please do make sure to read what I wrote. Is it a secret that mint has been eating AA's lunch at MIA? don't conflate different arguments to suit your need.
Overall, the biggest threat to B6 at FLL is NK expansion. It may not factor in on BGI/POS, but as a whole to their FLL network, NK is the biggest issue they are dealing with. Again, you can keep focusing on the 3 or 4 routes and assume that tells the story for the entire network.
