    JetBlue will begin non-stop service between DFW and Boston in May.

    JetBlue will offer nonstop service from between Boston and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport starting in May, the carrier said Wednesday.

    Fort Worth is the home base of American Airlines, which filed for bankruptcy protection last week.

    DFW will be JetBlue's 71st destination. JetBlue will have three flights a day, which go on sale Tuesday.

    American said it will continue to fly a regular schedule through the Chapter 11 process, but it plans to trim some flights to reduce costs.

    JPMorgan analyst Jamie Baker predicts that AMR, which also owns the American Eagle regional airline, will cut capacity by 10 percent.

    Last week, Spirit Airlines said it add flights from Dallas to New York and Atlanta. It offered $11 introductory fares.  On Wednesday, Spirit also announced travel between Phoenix-Mesa and DFW that will start March 22.
