JetBlue spokesman Alison Eshelman told LBReport.com that three daily long-haul flights from LB to JFK and 1 daily flight to Boston will be shifted to LAX and two daily LB flights to Washington, D.C./Dulles will now go from Burbank. JetBlue will continue to fly other long-haul flights from LB, she added.

Yeah, like Southwest, Virgin America and the like haven't been doing that already, what a novel concept by JetBlue
Actually, SWA does NOT fly ISP-LAX, or even MHT/PVD-LAX non stop, we do offer connections but thats it. So B6 and VX could lower the non stop fares for AA and the others on the JFK-LAX, because WN doesn't serve that market whatsoever.
