On Pprune is a very interesting topic about the possible start-up of a new longhaul airline from London Gatwick. Apparently they are looking to start 'luxury' flights to the US and the Carribean with B767/B777 aircraft. Rumored is that this airline is being set up by ex employees of AML (the people who operated some of BA's Carribean flights?). Now that BA has discontinued some of it's Carribean routes (after the contract with the aforementioned operator ended) it's possible that these people want to restart them as 'Hart Air' (similar name to Heart Air which was rumoured to be a new BHX LCC.........)
BA dropped the LGW- Cancun, Montego Bay and Havana routes.
By 'luxury' I suppose they're implying scheduled as opposed to charter flights(?).
