Ten years after taking its first flight out of Boston, JetBlue Airways has gone from “Jet who,” as chief executive Dave Barger puts it, to the dominant airline at Logan International Airport.
The airline flew nearly 8 million customers out of Boston last year and is adding its 50th destination out of Logan this week. By comparison, the second biggest carrier at Logan, the now-merged American Airlines and US Airways, carried 6.8 million passengers out of Boston last year.
This summer, JetBlue will take over all 24 gates in Terminal C. But being a major carrier in the Northeast means dealing with congested airspace and winter storms, and JetBlue took a beating during the storms in early January. The airline canceled 1,800 flights over a six days.
