Wonder where they'll get slots/gates from.

That seems to be from NY area. EWR-BOS looks to be 4x daily.

Is all the other service at EWR staying in tact? They are just getting four additional slots? I wonder if the additional slots has anything to do with Continental and United tying the knot?

Indeed; I was on my BB earlier and misread it.

Doubt it. CO/UA yielded 18 pairs to WN but that's all that was required of them for the merger by the DoJ.

Here's what I bet happened. Jetblue has about 15 slot pairs at the moment, using them to fly to Florida. 5 daily to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, double daily to Fort Myers and West Palm Beach and once daily to Tampa. Since those are mostly snowbird routes, they usually drop some of their summer flights. Maybe down to three apiece to FLL/MCO and maybe cut one of the RSW/PBI flights. Thus, they freed up some slots for Boston service.

OR

Jetblue moved some of their Florida service to off peak times, freeing up the slots for Boston. Porter did this, allowing them to add another three daily flights to Toronto, half of their eleven leave before noon.

Great ideas!!! Lets try to freeing up to acquired the more extra slots in EWR. I think there is something else. B6 could startup on transcons flight from EWR-LAX/SFO/LAS/PHX/LGB, too.

BOS-EWR was SOOOOO expensive, now prices will drop to normal BOS-NYC levels.

This is great news.

Not only will this bring down BOS-EWR fares, but it makes it possible for those in NJ (esp. those coming from the south) to get to the west coast via B6. e.g. EWR-BOS-SEA.

no, only CO for now. AA has been discontinuation service EWR-BOS back in 2007. Because the reasonable fares is getting too expensive. It was so much competitive against another carriers out of NYC.

That would be my guess but I could be wrong.

Saw this on the news this morning...B6 is now the airline to serve all major NYC airports from BOS...did not see this coming

They have served all three major and the smaller airports (EWR, LGA, JFK, SWF, and HPN) in the NYC area for years.
