JetBlue receives ok to cancel flights to major cities through September

This article popped up in my local news feed yesterday. JetBlue requested and received approval to stop service from Boston to several major cities through the end of September. The article says more details will come once final decisions are made, but I'm very surprised by some of the cities included (Chicago!?) I have trips to both Las Vegas and Chicago scheduled for June with them, and have just been holding tight playing the credit vs. refund game, but if they cancel I'll be entitled to the refund. I'm not sure if they requested similar relief out of other cities, or if it's just because Boston is a big hub of theirs?

Cities in the request:
  • Atlanta (ATL)
  • Charlotte (CLT)
  • Chicago (ORD)
  • Dallas/Ft. Worth (DFW)
  • Denver (DEN)
  • Detroit (DTW)
  • Houston (IAH)
  • Las Vegas (LAS)
  • Minneapolis (MSP)
  • Nashville (BNA)
  • Philadelphia (PHL)
  • Phoenix (PHX)
  • Portland (PDX)
  • San Diego (SAN)
  • Seattle (SEA)
  • Tampa (TPA)

JetBlue, as with other airlines, does not want to fly empty aircraft. In order to maintain valuable slots, regulatory agencies have required some semblance of regular services. In the case of Boston, JetBlue has had lots of recent competition from Delta and American, and they argue that for the time being, their service is not essential. Longterm, JetBlue has seen Boston as a logical spot for their international expansion plans with service to London. They plan to be back, but they don't want to lose their space in the meantime.

I fly from MCO to Albany on JetBlue and was about to make an August reservation. Hoping it would be better than driving and stopping at hotels and rest stops.
