    WOAH!!! NEVER thought I’d see BUF-LAX service! This is huge news for people who live in Upstate, NY. I can see a lot of people willing to drive 2+ hours from as far away as Ithaca to be able to get non-stop service to LAX and avoid connecting through DTW/PHL/EWR etc… Will be interesting to see how this route does!

    That is great! I really wish I could ride on this one with you! I did fly the inaugural JetBlue flight out of Buffalo back in 2000 so this would be another nice one to add to that.
    Have fun! Glad to see this route.

    Air Canada is becoming a domineering, not just dominating, transcon carrier at YYZ (Toronto-Pearson) with other airlines dumping their transcon service. At least from SFO and SJC, the transcon airfare has carried a significant premium vis a vi connecting at ORD, DTW, etc. since Air Canada’s last bankruptcy reorganization, but United has gone from about the same number of flights operated as AC to none and Air Canada only has daytime transcons eastbound (the SFO-YYZ transcon redeye was shifted to LAS).

    BUF has a real chance to compete with DTW as a near-transcon hub for Jet Blue and others flying non-stop from the West Coast.
