A quick look at random prices showed that VS/DL and BA/AA have reacted quickly to B6.
Also of course B6 has no lounge.
So the big boys aren't giving up the routes easily, but with that said, I don't see B6 having any issues filling the Mint cabin on every flight.
The biggest change in J pricing is the Close-in pricing. Pre-pandemic, the fares on there was outrageous compared to what you see on transcon market. I think big drops in that pricing will be what really ends up hurting legacy airlines here. A 15% drop in yield long term on a route like JFK-LHR will be catastrophic for an airline like VS.
not announced yet, but that doesn't mean it won't have loungehttps://liveandletsfly.com/jetblue-lounges/https://thepointsguy.com/news/jetblue-l ... h-details/
"One thing conspicuously absent from JetBlue’s announcement: any information about lounge access for business-class passengers.At the moment, there is no lounge access available. But there may be something in place by the time the flights actually launch.
“We’re working through the details right now,” Laurence told TPG. “While we don’t have anything to announce with this, I will tell you that it’s our intention to make sure that we’re competitive across the board.”
“We’re finalizing it as we speak,” he said."
I'd be very surprised long term if they don't have lounge option at JFK.
