Air Berlin & BA CityFlyer Starting LHR Flights?!

I have only read this on Wikipedia, so very unlikely to be true - especially as there is a huge lack of slots at Heathrow, but if you click on the link below, it says that Air Berlin and BA CityFlyer are starting flights to various European destinations in March 2011.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LHR

Is any of this true? If so, where have they got the slots from?

Apologies if this has already been discussed...

BA Cityflyer has no plans to fly into LHR, why would they when mainline serve all the destinations and having LCY based crew would increase costs where as there are thousands of LHR crew

I believe Air Berlin have applied for 2x daily slots to Gatwick each from Berlin, Nuremberg and Hanover, to start in February.

Thanks. Will this be in addition to the flights operated from Stansted?

I think AB should start flying PMI-LGW-PMI as it has a hub there and share codes with BA on those services.



Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

In case AB should start flying into LGW, it is highly likely that STN will be dropped; this also would mean that they were no longer going head-to-head with 4U ...
At least for HAJ its is safe to say, that additional flights to LGW would not be warranted, as already now the (up to) 4 flights among AB plus 4U cannot be filled regularly.
