    jet blue Airlines Competition Why Airlines Need Competition .
    by: James Post
    The airline holds a virtual monopoly for intra-Caribbean flights, and it shows. Once they canceled a flight because of "technical reasons". Most people realised that the real reason was economy as the flight was poorly booked. No apology, let alone compensation. Another time I almost missed a flight because it left half an hour early. Since I only had hand luggage it was so convenient to kick me out.

    by: Luis JJ Teixeira
    You need to understand that there is no such thing as discounted airfare and/or getting the cheapest airfare available. This is simply because there is no base price to work off. For example, a flight from New York to London should cost $600, but airline companies are offering it at $400. People really need to understand the reason for this is that there is no such thing as a fixed ticket price.

Saarinen Terminal to Reopen at Kennedy Airport

After a long darkness, the Trans World Airlines terminal at Kennedy International Airport — that abandoned embodiment of the “Come Fly With Me” era of jet-setting — would reopen this year, under a plan advanced Thursday by the Port Authority. The authority’s board approved a $19 million project to perform the essential repairs needed to allow travelers to pass through the 46-year-old terminal on their way to the enormous new Jet Blue Airways terminal that wraps around the T.W.A. building in a crescent shape.

Both buildings are known as Terminal 5. The hope is to open them simultaneously this fall, said William R. DeCota, the aviation director for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. If not, he said, the T.W.A. building — an official landmark designed by the architectural giant Eero Saarinen — would reopen soon thereafter.

Except for a brief stint as an exhibition gallery in 2004, the Saarinen terminal has been closed since T.W.A. ended operations in October 2001. The main terminal building, called the headhouse, and two tubular departure-arrival corridors have been preserved. Those corridors will connect the Saarinen and Jet Blue terminals.
Jet Blue logo. “When Terminal 5 launches in fall,” JetBlue says on its Web site, “customers will have the option of checking in at a Jet Blue kiosk in the Saarinen building and taking in this landmarked architectural wonder’s exquisite modernist design on their way to our new terminal.” The airline has already adopted the gull-winged profile of the T.W.A. building into its Terminal 5 logo.

Before it can reopen, Mr. DeCota said, asbestos must be removed, deteriorating exterior concrete and interior tilework must be repaired, sections of the roof must be replaced and life safety systems must be improved.

One element of the Saarinen building will almost certainly not be salvaged.
That is the trumpet-shaped flight departure lounge that used to sit at the end of one of the tubular corridors. Last year, at a cost of about $800,000, it was cut apart from the rest of the structure and moved about 1,500 feet to get it out of the way of construction crews while preservationists, airport officials and airline executives tried to figure out if it could be reused feasibly.

Though Mr. DeCota declined to say flatly on Thursday that there was nothing to be done with the “trumpet” structure, he hinted strongly that the money needed to thoroughly rehabilitate it, which he put at more than $10 million, would be better spent on the Saarinen headhouse.

The Municipal Art Society, a civic organization that belongs to the redevelopment advisory committee involved with the Saarinen building, believes that any decision to remove the “trumpet” structure would be “premature, fiscally irresponsible and historically inappropriate,” said Frank E. Sanchis III, its senior vice president. ***

Far from the holy Hudson

hen it started up, JetBlue said it was proud to call New York homebecause it was a New York type of airline, sort of hip and cool. Well, in the eight years since then JetBlue has grown a lot and it seems has Web2-Austin %2520Stevie%2520Ray%2520Status%2520on%2520Water%2520Front%2520Sept%25202002.jpg found a few other Jet Blue kind of towns that are nowhere near the holy waters of the Hudson River. Since the beginning of this year, Jet Blue, conceived and born within sound of both of new York’s big airports, JFK and LaGuardia, has made moves to boost two micro or minihubs pretty far west of Broadway. It set a May 1 expansion of its service from the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas, with new daily non-stop flights to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando, Florida, and San Francisco.

Austin is a government, hi-tech and entertainment centre, with a large live-music industry - a city trademark that is has a presence at the airport with frequent live performances greeting passengers. A statue of legendary pre-rock guitarist Stevie Ray Vaughn (left) sits near icons of Texas heroes Stephen Austin and other forbears (below). Austin mayor Will Wynn characterised the move as “creating a bridge between the East and West Coasts for their E190 aircraft”. Jet Blue chief executive Dave Barger quipped that "Jet Blue struck a chord with Austin travellers and vacationers."

These new Austin flights, on its 100-seat Embraer E-190s are in addition to its recently announced new service between the capital city of Texas and Long Beach, California, near Los Angeles. JetBlue’s planning vice president, Marty St. George, told the local paper, the American-Statesman, that "We have a very clear brand image, and Austin has the very attractive demographics Austin.bmpthat are consistent with that - younger, college educated. It's a Jet Blue kind of city." They took note of the Austin news up in Fort Worth, where the local paper, the Star-Telegram, ran a story headlined “Jet Blue to expand non-stop flights from Austin; still nothing in North Texas.” Jet Blue, will also up gauge its Austin service May 1 by substituting an Airbus A320 on its two-year-old Austin-Boston Logan route.

Jet Blue is also building up a city that has little in common with New York other than the fact that they are both in the lower 48 states. It announced a new route, Salt Lake City to Las Vegas, starting May 1, making the ‘Sin City’ its sixth Salt Lake City destination. This will be an Airbus route, as are the other Jet Blue routes out of the Utah capital. They are to four cities in California (SFO, San Diego, Burbank, and Long Beach) plus JFK. No quotes about Salt Lake City being a Jet Blue kind of town.***



Solar sunflowers to sprout at Mueller; Jet Blue weighing more Austin flights

'Sunflower' power coming to Mueller
Some pretty weird-looking sunflowers will sprout this spring at the Mueller development. The 30 giant blue structures — 16 feet high by 14 feet wide — will be made of solar collectors. They'll provide shade during the day and, at night, will help power lights along part of a hike-and-bike trail within the development.

They'll be planted along the Interstate 35 side of Mueller.

Applied Materials Inc. this week donated $50,000 to the project, topping off an earlier $500,000 donation from Catellus, the master developer for Mueller. The City of Austin will ante up $65,000 in rebates from its solar rebate program. Applied Materials has more than an aesthetic interest in the project. The company is getting into the business of making equipment to manufacture solar panels, along with its core business of supplying the semiconductor industry.

The solar flowers, designed by the Harries/H├ęder Collaborative in Cambridge, Mass., were chosen from among 37 projects submitted.

Jet Blue considering more nonstops from Austin

Jet Blue made a splash in Austin this week when it announced three more nonstop flights, bringing its total from Austin to six. More could be coming: Chief executive Dave Barger, who flew in personally to make the announcement, said Jet Blue would consider more routes out of Austin. One possibility: Dulles International Airport outside of Washington.

"We're working on it," Barger told business leaders at a breakfast meeting. An airline representative said JetBlue will first want to see well how the new Florida and West Coast routes do before adding more. Those flights start in May. ***
