I doubt that Fly First will ever fly at all - the company starts with a major competitive disadvantage by operating from out-of-the-way Luton, and the other NYC-LON operators have demonstrated time and again that they can aggressivley defend their C/F traffic turf through fare sales, FF promos, and even by enhancing the product when necessary.

yeah. these things only appear to work when they are from a sensible place to another - eg DUS-EWR and DUS-ORD. I can't imagine pegging it from central London to Luton to catch a flight to NYC in J class. Maybe I am being unfair because maybe you can get their quickly, but perception is key and a lot of people will simply not give it credibility as an option.
