Pretty disappointing that JAX didn't feature at all in Breeze initial plans. Hubs in Tampa, New Orleans and Charleston. Looks like their business plan is mainly unserved p2p routes between mid/smaller sized cities on reduced frequencies to keep them viable. MSY and CHS especially gained a lot of previously unserved routes out of it. With the population growth in Jacksonville I thought we would have had a shot. Wonder what put them off. Lack of leisure traffic? Silver adding a few routes recently?

My theory I'm hoping is true is that Breeze Airlines is a front for JetBlue to slowly get rid of their old Embraer planes so they can replace them with new Airbus jets. The JFK-JAX flights were always busy but the most recent EWR-JAX flights I took were totally packed and a nice wider A320 for the flights would have been welcome.

As for the JAX-LAX flights they seemed to be doing ok with the special introductory airfares - not a ton of unsold seats for many flights I looked at. I really hope this run is successful enough for JetBlue to keep this year-round. I have friends wanting to head with me to LA for the Jags-Rams matchup this fall.

Work on Concourse B moving forward again

Quote
Just over a year ago, the Jacksonville Aviation Authority hit the pause button on its plans for Concourse B — a multimillion-dollar project designed to deal with ever-growing passenger numbers.

With the number of travelers cratering as the Covd-19 pandemic took hold, that project became less necessary. Now, though, as fliers return to the sky, the $200 million project is back on track, with the engineering team of Jacobs and RS&H returning to the design process.

Would love to see PHX, SLC, SEA, or PDX.

JAX-LaGuardia just announced 2X Daily by JetBlue as part of a massive JetBlue expansion at LGA. Only downside is JetBlue is leaving the Marine Air Terminal which was a nice convenience for those travelers.

And now Delta is dumping JAX-RDU. Not a shock there.

Personally I was more shocked when they announced the route.  Didn’t realize there was a need.

I have regular business in San Juan so this route is very much appreciated. I just wish it was almost any other carrier besides Frontier.
