American Airlines and JetBlue have a strategic Northeast Alliance, allowing both airlines to coordinate on routes. Customers from both airlines can experience loyalty benefits on either airline and have more flight options to choose from major cities throughout the U.S. The Northeast Alliance is now expanding and adding new routes that passengers will be able to choose from.

New and Expanded Service on American

American is adding these routes on May 5, 2023:

  • New York (LGA) to Birmingham (BHM)
  • New York (LGA) to Buffalo (BUF)
  • New York (LGA) to Columbia (CAE)
  • New York (LGA) to Grand Rapids (GRR)
  • New York (LGA) to Greenville (GSP)
  • New York (LGA) to Knoxville (TYS)

New York (LGA) to Asheville (AVL) will also go from a seasonal service to year-round, and American will add an additional frequency from Boston (BOS) to Louisville (SDF).

American is also expanding service on these routes in 2023:

  • Charlotte (CLT) to Frankfurt (FRA)
  • Charlotte (CLT) to Paris (CDG)
  • Dallas (DFW) to Santiago (SCL)
  • Dallas (DFW) to Tokyo (HND)
  • Los Angeles (LAX) to Sydney (SYD)
  • Los Angeles (LAX) to Tokyo (HND)
  • Seattle (SEA) to London (LHR)

In addition, American is upgrading its Dallas (DFW) to Anchorage (ANC) route to a Boeing 787, which will have more seats to take passengers to popular outdoor spots in Alaska.

New Service on JetBlue

JetBlue will be adding several new routes from New York (LGA) in spring 2023, including:

  • New York (LGA) to Atlanta (ATL), served 4x daily, replacing a previous service offered by American Airlines
  • New York (LGA) to Bermuda (BDA), served once a day during the summer season
  • New York (LGA) to Hyannis (HYA), served once a day during the summer season
  • New York (LGA) to Nassau (NAS), served once a day

Out of Newark (EWR), JetBlue is introducing Mint class, a premium lie-flat cabin, on summer 2023 flights to Aruba (AUA) and Montego Bay (MBJ).

Boston (BOS) to Vancouver (YVR) will also make a debut during the summer 2023 season — a route added due to the success of a similar route launched by JetBlue last year from New York (JFK) to Vancouver (YVR).

Hot Tip: Remember, you can earn miles on either carrier when you enter your American Airlines AAdvantage or JetBlue TrueBlue number in the reservation.

Final Thoughts

The Northeast Alliance is in full swing, with American and JetBlue launching new routes, and in some cases taking over routes operated by the other carrier, to provide better coordination on schedule. Be sure to check out some of American’s increased service to key international destinations, new routes on JetBlue’s Mint product, and some additional smaller cities served out of New York (LGA).
