As you are all no doubt aware Openskies (EC) will start AMS - JFK op's next month. But what will be the next move and how quickly will it be?!

My personal feeling is they'll start op's from Milan, whether that be from LIN or MXP I know not?!

But does anybody have any info regarding as an when we are likely to see the next move?! Is Milan, if indeed it is Milan going to start........before year end?!

Yes Milan could be a very good move.

And as soon as possible, now it is a very good moment. Because AZ troubles.

What about FRA or BRU?? or more freq. to Paris and Amsterdam??

If Milan, it means MXP.

Any chance EC will fly JFK DUB? With WW running BA he would have some idea of its value.


It is what it is.

It will all depend on when Openskies get there 3rd aircraft.

The second aircraft has had it's cabin and winglets fitted and is in EC colours.

If AZ ever go out of business would think MXP would be a good bet. Especially since BA already have a good rep in Italy and they carry a large number of premium pax already between Italy and the US via LON.

I do think though after LH buying a stake in SN from under BA nose wouldn't suprise me if BRU or FRA are next.

It is on their shortlist of destanations they want to serve.

More ORY flights are very doubtful. Remember Openskies have bought L'avion meaning they currently operate 3 flights per day between ORY and NYC. When it comes to AMS, additional capacity will not be added until they see how popular the flights are.

I assume this is G-BPEJ as it does not appear to have operated a BA flight since it flew BA481 (BCN-LHR) on 8 August. Can anyone confirm?

I also assume that 'EK has been configured with a cabin for 64 J/W passengers and will take the CDG-JFK route over from G-BPEK on 1 October so that 'EK can have its cabin reconfigured for 64 passengers before the launch of AMS-JFK on 15 October.
