Cheap Fares and DIRECTV for Everyone!

After years of trying to get some gates at O'Hare, JetBlue has finally gotten authorization for 4 daily departures. JetBlue has until the end of January to start flights out of O'Hare, and they're not yet sure where they'll be flying to.

2006_10_jetblue_tv.jpgThe reason JetBlue needed FAA approval is because of the cap put on flights out of O'Hare. They'd originally requested 8 flights/day but halved it last week and was approved. This is a big win for JetBlue ... but not so much for United and American. Luckily, JetBlue doesnt have Southwest to compete with at O'Hare, as Southwest only flies out of Midway.

Where do you want JetBlue to provide service to? Since they already have a strong presence at NY's JFK Airport, we're thinking it's a no brainer. Where else? Vegas? Boston?
