JetBlue's (JBLU +5.5%) winning bid to nab 8 landing slots at LaGuardia and Washington Reagan could rattle rivals if the carrier sets up a shuttle service between the two airports. Delta Air Lines (DAL +2.7%) booked $49M in revenue over the route in the 9 months following Q2 2010, while US Airways (LCC +5.4%) tallied $58M. But if JBLU replicates its presence in the National-Boston market, fare prices could drop 30% as competition heats up.
