Update: Jetblue will start with 3 daily flights to JFK and 1 to Boston on 05/21. They will fly out of LAX T6 (Yay-President’s club access!) They are also adding flights from their other SoCal cities. Full info in this just-released press release.
This should hopefully reignite transcontinental competition once again-There will now be 6 carriers serving the LAX-NYC market!
Unfortunately I doubt we’ll see a repeat of AA’s best promotion ever which they launched in response to a growing Jetblue. You know which one I’m talking about. The fly twice from NYC to Florida or California and get a free systemwide ticket promo!
I got 8 worldwide tickets from that promo-Did anyone else participate in that promo? Unfortunately it pre-dated the launch of this website.
However I do think there will be some sort of promo response from the major carriers to Jetblue’s entrance into Los Angeles International-we’ll just have to wait and see.
