JetBlue Introduces New Service from San Francisco to Vegas

Posted in Domestic US, In the Air, JetBlue

Bay Area Gamblers rejoice! Today, JetBlue launched service from SFO to LAS and that means two flights daily will now head to Vegas non-stop for all the blackjack, showgirls, and Alaskan snow crab legs you can handle. All of the standard JetBlue amenities (free snacks, drinks, and wi-fi) apply and the aircraft will be the 150-seat Airbus A320. Here’s the schedule:

LAS – SFO SFO – LAS
7:00 a.m. – 8:40 a.m. 9:25 a.m. – 11:01 a.m.
12:50 p.m. – 2:31 p.m. 12:45 p.m. – 2:20 p.m.

 

Those flights are barely over an hour and a half, which means you can take a half-day at work on Friday, climb on the 12:45pm flight out to Sin City, blow your 401k on craps, and be back in a puddle of tears by 8:40am the next morning. Awesome! Conversely, you can also gorge yourself on cheap prime rib, take in a Cirque show, dance your ass off to Bruno Mars in da club, and be back with a giant smile on your face — it’s your Vegas trip, pal, do with it what you will.

To make this new development even better, JetBlue is offering $59 fares each way from January 19 – April 30, 2015, but you have to book by January 11th.

  1. Heck yes, the 2x round trips, SFO-LAS daily is a wonderful boost for Jet Blue fans. One thought and one question: From SFO, LAS is likely not the best target if one is really seeking crab and yes, Snow Crab may not be the world’s best crab choice… Kings and Dungies are a lot better, but that is strictly a personal opinion.
    Since Jet is such an efficient airline, and the mostly morning cycle of flights ends about 1420, I wonder where they apply the airplane for the remainder of the day. Any ideas? Seven hours use (in 24) is not enough to pay their rent/mortgage on the airplane. The schedule sort of suggests that the airplane overnights at LAS, but I cannot imagine that they just park it between 1420 and 0700. Any ideas?

  2. @Cook: the crab remark was merely a reference to the multitude of buffets that offer Alaskan snow crabs on their buffets. I totally agree that king is better, but I’ll save that for another time.

    As for the JetBlue aircraft sitting around, I wonder if it has to do with utility. They fly direct to Long Beach, JFK, Ft. Lauderdale, and Boston, so I wonder if they found having an extra plane available helps in case there are issues with the other planes. Just a theory.
