What is the likelihood that a NYC to STN flight would do well?

Obviously, FR operates a lot of service from that airport. They have a legitimate route network that can feed passengers across Europe cheaply. The flight would be at its cheapest flying out of SWF, but I imagine that one could squeeze in a flight from JFK or EWR as well.

Biz only has been tried from NYC to LON secondary airports and failed.

BA is trying LCY-JFK in Biz class only, but the draw of that is the stop for preclearence at SNN.(Avoiding JFK customs and immigration).

What market are you thinking as the target market?

Long time has passed since I heard anything about "RyanAtlancic" or whatever FR's TATL branch would be named. Proposed airports in Europe were STN, DUB, HHN if I recall correctly, liking to secondary US East Coast airports (fares from 50 Euros...), but the whole matter has become very silent.

FR does not offer connecting flights, so people would have manage connections on their own risk. If the fares are really thus low, these flights might well be work, though. Still, there obviously would be more demand if connections would be guaranteed, but I dunno if FR really would change their biz model. And they would need a longhaul aircraft type including crews, layover costs etc.

AA has tried a New York flight out of STN twice I believe in recent years, and if I am right; both times it failed because of poor yields. I stand to be corrected on that however.

AA has attempted JFK-STN only once, operating between 28th October 2007 and 2nd July 2008. They did announce their intention to begin a second daily flight in the market in addition to the first, but ultimately pulled off the route altogether before the plan materialized.

AA also operated ORD-STN previously between 15th June 1992 and 31st May 1993.

I would say that it's second attempt was actually a roaring success! It killed off Eos and MaxJet within 9 months before either could make a significant dent in AA's other London operations...

The last time AA flew to STN was purely to kill off EOS and MAXjet as they were taking a lot of business passengers off the JFK-LHR route, the loads AA was flying were good and a lot of cargo seemed to be loaded every day,though no idea on figures. As soon as they 'killed' the competition they withdrew services very quickly. There is definatly a want for transatlantic service from STN by a large number of passengers, just with the economic climate at the moment no-one is willing to take a chance and see if it will be sustainable long term. all services have been started and ended within 2-3 years, hardly long enough to establish a route.

Canada would have more chance of working than America for the moment as services to Toronto with zoom were always full when they did operate. In the next few years they only new routes i could see happening would be charter service to SFB or YYZ. Continental and US Airways have held slots to STN for a number of years but have just been sitting on them not acting on them. Rumors fly round it just depends on which ones turn out to be true.

FR passengers are used to flying without interline agreements. If one is motivated enough to fly FR with little or no human help, I'm sure that they would be able to find said connecting service and use it. Especially if they are going to fly onward on FR for ~$7.50. That would be more money for the international service. The NYC-London BA pricing is becoming more rational, so it may be time for such a service.

CO's EWR-STN was launched in Summer 2001 and seemed to be off to a reasonably good start, but was yanked with the initial post-9/11 turndown.

It is unlikely that CO will return to the EWR-STN market, instead they have focused their London efforts on LHR. Any additional London service beyond Heathrow would probably only serve to dilute CO's existing traffic, since no NYC-STN options are presently available.

Typical AA for you.

It can work with connections in NYC (similar to CO at BHX). I believe either CO, AA or DL will give it a try using a 757 eventually. STN has a larger cachement area than some of the secondary airports that work fo CO today, so I think it can work.
As for an FR operated STN-SWF, think Freddy Laker's SkyTrain.
