    When did JetBlue announce that? Was it a match to AirTran’s promotion? Southwest also matched this week with double Rapid Rewards.

    Until August this was AirTran’s market with nominal competition from Comair. Then Southwest came in, and JetBlue quickly said it would start operations in BWI. Delta/Comair wisely dropped the route once Southwest had announced.

    jetBlue announced the promo a couple days ago. I didn’t realize that Southwest was in on it, too, though that makes sense since they have a few frequencies on the route, too.

    Still strange that such a random route has so much competition and appeal to those carriers. It doesn’t seem like a particularly premier route nor does it appear to have particularly great yields to make is something in such demand.

    I just went and looked and don’t see the Southwest bonus on this route. Are you sure there is something going on there for Rapid Rewards?
