JetBlue is the No. 1 airline in San Juan and has been for almost a year now, according to a Bureau of Transportation Statistics chart published in the aviation blog at DallasNews.com.
According to the chart, JetBlue surpassed American Airlines/American Eagle in market share last February, and the gap grew to a 7-point edge for JetBlue last September.
Reporter Terry Maxon said that American’s fall is “probably more dramatic” than the chart indicates because American’s numbers don’t include Executive Airlines, which will cease flying out of San Juan on April 1 (Executive operates under the American Eagle brand).
