Re: AA Starting PHL-BUD/PRG; ORD-VCE; Move JFK-ZRH to PHL

Re: JetBlue Adds ATL-FLL/JFK/MCO

B6 will do fine to JFK. 7-8 flights on 2 different airlines is fine.

BOS, there is a lot more competition. They need a more agressive schedule and BOS business people.

MCO and FLL are for feed. Nothing more.

They can get you from ATL to SJU etc now

It's fun to land there. There's always a fire in arms distance of the runway (normal for many islands) and a man in a booth at the end of the runway (also seen in DR)

That's on a normal day.
