The low-cost carrier JetBlue (which flies out of Burbank and Long Beach) was voted America's best low-cost carrier, and we couldn't agree more. What better way to fly than with leather seats and satellite television?

Cattle Call Air, also known as Southwest was ranked #2, and they might have a little more to worry about. Who hasn't been on a SWA Friday flight from Burbank to Las Vegas, with a sea of humanity standing under the A,B and C signs waiting for their chance to grab a window or an aisle seat. But now JetBlue has announced a new flight from Burbank to Vegas, too.

According to CBS2.com:
