Frontier threatens to displace JetBlue in the Caribbean

San Juan – JetBlue’s flight leadership in the Caribbean region, especially in operations between the United States and the Dominican Republic, is under threat, as Frontier seeks to capture part of that valuable market.

Both low-cost airlines are starring in an eye-catching competition from Puerto Rican soil to the DR. For example, in the connection between the capital of Puerto Rico and Santiago de los Caballeros, Frontier has opened up powerful competition to JetBlue, planning to offer almost 34,000 seats. In the same way, it is proposed to operate five weekly flights to Santo Domingo from various airports in Puerto Rico, making JetBlue reinforce its offensive, as in fact, it is already doing, betting on its sweetest strategy: great offers, as it could. check As a disadvantage for JetBlue, this fierce competition comes at a time when its image and reputation in the Dominican market are simply faltering. The cause? Its constant service failures, ranging from cancellations to delays that in many cases exceed 20 hours. Everything seems to indicate that the battle that Frontier is posing to JetBlue from Puerto Rico is just the beginning and that will then expand to other American destinations where JetBlue dominates at ease.

Frontier service is horrible, and they actually have a really bad problem with cancellations and on time. The only airline worse than JetBlue is frontier with on time. I don’t think frontier has the strength to put up a long fight there

JetBlue is the best. You have to pay for everything in Frontier airlines.

Haven’t you heard? The “New Frontier” is being rolled out. No more cancellations no more fees just cheap tickets:)

I fly Jet Blue in the US and between SDQ and JFK a lot. Delays are a problem as is their apparent lack of urgency and poor organization not he ground in the DR. Other than that, JetBlue is a solid airline with good service and excellent network in the US for flights originating in New York. On the other hand Frontier is a dumpster fire of an airline with rude indifferent staff, terrible phone support, a pathetic US network and dismal record for on time performance and cancellations.
