RE: B6 To SRQ, HOU, & TUS

Tue Jun 27, 2006 2:49 am

Quoting Azstar (Reply 47):
The assumption in TUS is that PHX fares are always lower. As a result, 300,000 Tucson passengers originate in Phoenix per year. That's a lot of Airbuses and 737's. If fares were always competetive, Tucson wouldn't be struggling to maintain nonstop air service to a lot of cities.

For the most part that is true, and the availability of more nonstop flights. However when CO had their EWR flight they priced it in competition with B6's PHX-JFK flight...that was part of the reason why they lost money on it. One way fare was about $150....pretty cheap!

Tuscon - why? There is a limited market on this route, there must be better opportunities.

I think it would be better for jetBlue routes like JFK-PHX-TUS-PHX-JFK.

And also, what about BDL?  Smile

Ok guys I just got home and talked to my buddy at B6. They said it showed one flight each to SRQ and TUS, 3 flights to HOU. Dont know the type of plane being flown or any times so guess just have to wait for the annoucement.

I would of thought that the plans were for St. Louis and working there way west with the E190. But i guess they have some extra A320's around and are going to start Houston. I would have hoped for DFW, but i guess they are not that brave yet! But it will come i am confident.

What do you guys think of MKE, CLE, CVG and IND in the near future. It is only a matter of time, but at somepoint B6 is going to have to saddle up and take on one of the majors... the question is which one!

Hey Mcofreak...

Does your buddy work at the airport? How can he get access to this info? I'm sure that the B6 managment wouldn't let this info out of the bag until it is offically announced. That's why I'm skeptical about this thread.

We are really trying to expand the E190 flights. TUS would have to be an A320 flight if it came from JFK, but the others can be E190. While the E190 is good for the short flights, we are just not getting the amount of hours out of them that we would like because they are doing a lot of short hops. So by adding a few longer flights (i.e.: currently serving AUS and TPA) we can start using the planes more.

Wait just one minute - a few weeks ago, we heard that JetBlue was going to cut back on longer segments (ie, transcons) since the revenue generated by these longer flights was not suffecient. To solve this issue, JetBlue was going to start flying more shorter haul segment (ie, routes where an aircraft can do several turns per day) in order to increase revenue. Now, you are saying that the E190s are not flying enough hours (thus not producing enough revenue) on short haul routes and the answer is to add longer segments? I must admit that I am confused.

The two most recently announced JetBlue routes are long segments....JFK-CUN and JFK-AUA.......there are the cities mentioned in this thread, all long segments except for SRQ, and there is the Reno and Palm Springs rumors flying around (almost transcons).

Is JetBlues expansion going to focus on long haul or short haul?

I wouldn't classify them long haul...we are looking at a lot of short and mid-range flights. I am surprised to see TUS to be honest with you...then again I was surprised to see the connecting of BUR and MCO. Sometimes I get thrown for a loop LOL!!!

No offense to the thread starter, but other B6 Crew Members on this thread have already stated that they have not seen such information already loaded into their software. In addition, B6 is smart enough to not release any information on future destinations until about a day before the formal announcement.

well the JFK-CUN flight was actually planned already before our whole "Return to Profitability" plan took action. IIRC, we applied for the authority back in December i think. and our RTP plan commenced at the beginning of this year.

TUS is/will be a surprise if it is true. i really hope we'll start adding wisconsin in the near future. have friends up there i'd love to visit! Either MSN or MKE!

This is totally off topic, but I kinda wonder why B6 hasn't shown any interest in MYR. Granted it isn't a business market, but I do remember Midway used to clean up in the winter time with all the golfers flying down from NYC, BOS that they upgraded from about 4x daily on a J32 to about 5x daily with CRJs. Seems like it would make a good candidate for 2X Daily from BOS and 1X Daily from JFK.

My sentiments exactly.

I recall some years back that "well informed and reliable sources" were saying that DFW was next up on B6's route map. Now some 2 years later, do we see B6's planes @ DFW? I have a feeling that this is just another one of those "I have a friend who...." threads that shows up all too frequently here. Now, if I am wrong an B6 does begin a HOU flight then I will happily admit that I was wrong. Believe it or not I want B6 in H-Town as well.

The chances of TUS seem very slim to me. CO struggled with EWR-TUS even with connections. TUS is generally a low yield airport and I don't see B6 making a go of TUS. Even if they did announce TUS I would guarantee a red-eye return.

RE: B6 To SRQ, HOU, & TUS

Wed Jun 28, 2006 12:50 am

Regardless of B6's actual plans, their service to TUS would be (a) successful and (b) highly utilized. I've often wondered if B6 would initiate service from IAD in fact because it would make oodles of money.

Consider the following:

(a) TUS has no low-priced service to the east coast. US, being a low cost airline, should have low-price fares to the east but they don't. Just ask any Tucsonan. Only WN comes close with a flight to BWI. The 1000's passengers are going to PHX for a reason, and it sure as heck isn't convenience. Make flights TUS-east coast reasonable and the passengers will flock, guaranteed.

(b) "CO's TUS-EWR route failed." This appears to be true, at least until the next winter season, but B6 is offering a different product. Per point a, CO's failure could be attributed to the route's high price versus going to PHX. I am a big CO fan, but low-price east coast service would be a huge boon.

(c) Whomever thinks TUS is a low-yield market has not checked prices lately. When I flew BWI-TUS a few weeks back the fare on CO was over $500. If B6 offered a routine sub-$400 fare on this route I bet they would sell out plenty of planes. This average fare would make it easily higher yield than the east coast-LGB flights.

(c2) It should also be noted that only leisure travellers originating from TUS and with lots of spare time go to PHX. It takes at least 2 hrs each direction, making this a 4+ hour addition to travel time. Most trips are in 18 passenger vans with low-back bench seating. For passengers who don't live in TUS, the travel time does not include getting to/from a hotel once arrived in TUS. So if someone has the $$ to stay at a nice TUS resort, they will not go to PHX. Ditto for business travelers, who conclude that saving $100 is not worth four hours of lost productivity in a 18 passenger van outfitted with low-back bench seating.

(d) Consider also that the rumor does not rule out an alternative LGB flight. Just about every airline flying into TUS right now has a flight to SoCal, and by most accounts these flights are always full. So B6 adding this route may make sense as well.

Well I am happy to say that this skeptic (myself) was wrong. While I would have preferred that B6 service IAH (10 miles from my home as opposed to that horrific 37 mile drive to HOU) than Hobby, I am still elated to see B6 in H-Town.

I normally make NY, 3 times a year and this give me an opportunity to try B6, which I have been wanting to do for some years now. Heck, I might try B6 on the way up and TZ (from LGA) for the flight back.
