JetBlue Re-times San Francisco - Austin Route

From the Flyertalk forums comes word JetBlue has re-timed their daily non-stop flight between San Francisco and Austin, Texas. The adjustments mean the flight to Austin will depart late in the afternoon, returning back to San Francisco early the next morning. The changes have been updated on the JetBlue website.

-Current schedule through September 8, 2009:
AUS-SFO 1850-2032
SFO-AUS 0832-1403

-Schedule beginning September 9, 2009:
AUS-SFO 0815-1005
SFO-AUS 1630-2156

Last month American Airlines announced they were pulling their 'Nerd Bird' route - San Jose-Austin effective later this August, citing operating costs exceeding actual revenues. This announcement caused Alaska Airlines to quickly get into the action and replace the American Airlines flight with one of their own, believing they can find a way to turn a profit on this route. That flight is expected to start on September 2, 2009, a week after the American flight ends.
