According to to the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (ajc.com) JetBlue sWhile the letter didn’t mention specific routes JetBlue intends to serve, “ said the article.

This would be JetBlue’s second go-round in Atlanta. They served Atlanta for about 6 months in 2003, and ended service in December 2003 after stiff competition on trans-con routes from Delta, and AirTran who was later acquired by Southwest Airlines in May 2011, but ran as a separate airline until late 2014.

Bottom Line:

With the addition of JetBlue’s larger Airbus A321 aircraft, their Mint premium cabin, and competitive pricing, JetBlue seems to be ready to cut into Delta’s 73.20 percent, and Southwest’s 10.35 of Atlanta’s market share (Apr 2015 – Mar 2016).
