Re: JetBlue To Launch BOS-SYR

This was more than expected. B6 is picking off AA's non-hub routes. ROC should be next. Good point, I forgot AA continues to fly this (and ROC). And if I recall correctly, AA is dropping BOS-BUF (and DL will add it)...I wonder if DL will follow the same playbook, given that SYR is arguably less imp...

JetBlue To Launch BOS-SYR

But SYR certainly makes sense, and is not a surprise by any stretch...perhaps Schumer's pull continues to be significant: One flight a day clearly aimed for connections over BOS.

Re: Embraer pitches E195-E2 for JetBlue

I was at BOS yesterday for 5+ hours (flew CDG-BOS-LGA on AA), and I didn't really understand the extent to which the E190 acts as the backbone to B6's operation until now. I would say over 2/3 of active B6 planes I saw were E190's. It's hard to see how B6 would get rid of its 100-seat aircraft - at ...

Re: OAG Changes 5/21/2017:AA Drops LGA-MCI, B6 Drops LAS-SFO, DL Drops SLC-MIA

Re B6 dropping LAS-SFO - This route never made sense given neither is a B6 focus city, and B6 is very limited in gate space at SFO. With just 2 gates, B6 turns 6x to JFK, 3x to BOS (soon to be 4x), 2x to FLL, and 5x to LGB. Dropping the 2x to LAS gives B6 some breathing room, which could be especial...

Re: JetBlue New NYPD Livery

Beautiful plane. Happy to see B6 continue to differentiate itself with its special liveries.

Happy to see the NYPD honored. They have one of the toughest jobs and do an incredible job keeping NYC safe.
