Today, Airnation.com, a frequent traveler's web site, reported that Jet Blue is starting service from Worchester Central Massachusetts Airport to both Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood and Orlando, Fla. Jet Blue is a major "east coast" airline with hubs in Boston and JFK that provides service to Florida, Chicago and to some California cities. If Worchester, a city and area about the same size as the metro-east and about the same distance from a major airport (Boston-Logan), as Mid-America, can Mid-America attract Jet Blue here? Have Tim Cantwell and Mark Kern met with Jet Blue marketing officials? If Worchester can pull in enough flyers for Jet Blue, shouldn't we be able to do the same? Now that would be something. I bet the St Louis-Lambert Airport Commission and their airport director have already been lobbying Jet Blue.
