Jet Blue Goes Burbank

I’ve never flown Jet Blue but I know people who have and they’re total retards about how amazing it is. I guess the DirectTV in the seats does that to them. The only complaint I ever heard (outside of them handing over all their clients personal info to the feds thus violating their own privacy policy a few years back) is that people had to drive to Long Beach to catch a lift. Well those days are over, or will be over soon enough (May 24th). The news from Franklin Avenue is:

“Jet Blue will take over the gates in Bob Hope Airport’s Terminal A that are expected to be vacated by Aloha Airlines. Aloha, which recently filed for bankruptcy, is leaving Burbank this year.

Writes the [paper]: JetBlue will launch the new Burbank-New York service with a promotional, $99 one-way fare. Regular one-way fares will range from $124 to $299, excluding security fees and taxes. The same fare range applies to the carrier’s Long Beach to New York flights.

By comparison, the one-way fare on a Delta flight for May 24 from Burbank to New York’s LaGuardia Airport, with a stop in Atlanta, was $159, a check of Delta’s website showed Wednesday. A United flight the same day from Burbank to LaGuardia, with a stop in Denver, was $270.
