City Manager Discussing How We Are Paying For Polar Park

JetBlue Arriving at FLL At Midnight


How can we spin this to be a good thing???

If you own a place down there , I guess that works good.   

  •  You do whatever you need to do up here
  •  Catch a late night flight
  •  Arrive at your place by 2AM 
  •  Wake up in Florida to start the next day..

Other than that flight does not work well for:

  1. families traveling for vacation
  2. people want to make a connection
  3. Think the list could go on and on. 

Got to believe that the consistent 70-80 loads for this flight will suffer with these times!

The only thing that will improve these times is competition. Landing a Spirit, Frontier or Avelo to FL destinations will increase loads across the board at ORH!

Chill. It’s just temporary. It goes back to afternoons in February. Probably just some creative scheduling while the address resources. Heck. Better than suspending the flight.

Flew to Orlando today from Boston (only because I wanted to see what the newer JetBlue A320s are like) and had a connection to DCA. I really question why American isn’t flying there instead of JFK. There were so many American planes going to every east coast destination imaginable that they serve and a lot of flights looked to be fully booked considering the people outside of them. I mentioned it before a couple of days ago that they should be flying to DCA and not JFK and I now fully believe that should be the case. DCA is definitely one of the biggest hubs for american for flights within the United States and there are a couple of JetBlue flights that go there too (there’s one that goes from Boston every hour and the one I was on today was 100% booked). If the alliance stays, I definitely believe American should consider switching the flight. Plus, when my family went to Orlando in 2021 on a plane (I took the auto train down so we had our car down there), BOS to DCA then DCA to MCO was the cheapest route the Saturday before thanksgiving and it usually is one of the cheaper routes with one stop when you have busy times. I hope even with the runway work delaying potential new airlines, American can make that switch to a late morning flight. Another thing that’s great about DCA is it’s not hard to go from the JetBlue to American area or switch gates for your next flight. They’re all super close and convenient to each other.

Also, terminal C (JetBlue’s terminal now) at MCO is one of the nicest I’ve ever been in. While work is still being done to it, JetBlue has taken full advantage of it. Lot less traffic to that terminal (if you’ve ever picked someone up from MCO or flown out of there, you know how much of a mess terminals A&B are), bigger areas for pickup for ride shares and other things, lot more open space inside the terminal, and very accessible and easy to navigate. It’s also I believe the only terminal where you don’t have to take a tram to get to the main building. There is still work being done to the terminal and there’s very limited gates (I believe less than 20 and JetBlue isn’t the only airline in that terminal) but if they decide to expand that terminal and add gates, there’s definitely room for it by the looks of Google maps.

The A320 that is being used into Worcester for the FLL flight, I’m sorry but If you’re flying out of any other airport you’re making a mistake. Regardless of the time at the moment, it is one of my favorite planes I’ve ever been on. While Delta’s flight entertainment is the best, JetBlue’s isn’t far behind it, and there’s plenty of legroom, seats are very comfortable, plenty of overhead space for carry on bags, the WiFi is excellent, and it’s very roomy and comfy. When you have the cheapest flight to FLL in New England with a bag, and it’s on a very nice aircraft at a place with the cheapest parking for an airport, why would you be flying out of anywhere else? I can see why a lot of seasonal people really enjoy the flight and I’m looking forward to going back on it next week Flying to ORH.
