OAG update: No UX refile. FI 4th frequency was some sort of misfile or schedule change.
S4 increasing BOS-PDL/TER again
PDL - is 9x weekly - no Wednesdays and one mid-morning departure which means early morning arrival from PDL
TER- is 4x weekly - one of the new frequencies is a mid-morning departure on Monday. The inbound flight for this comes from PDL not TER.
NK made frequency cuts for DFW/MSY/ATL for May.
Surprised JetBlue has not yet commenced any TATL routes.... I think time is running out for them as Norwegian is picking all the low hanging fruits.
I'm not sure the two carriers are mutually exclusive.
Ya, I agree. I wouldn't be surprised if B6 starts its TATL service from BOS before JFK. It has a very loyal customer base and much less competition there. And BOS is an affluent market that can easily fill the small-ish Mint cabins.
They have to make the A321neoLR order official first.
However, D8 choosing PVD was a gift to B6 if they choose to go transatlantic. With the USA feed B6 could easily pull off EDI from BOS and get MINT buyers up front.
I wonder if they wanted to be the first mover on STN too. Trains to Liverpool Station leave every 15 minutes from STN. Its not a horrible alternative to LGW or LHR. They have to do LON and PAR - would be cool to see BOS-ORY. BOS-British Isles/DUS/AMS/BRU/GVA/NCE are all other possibilities.
B6 needs to decide a couple other things - do they want to tick off or cooperate with their current partners (especially EI and FI) and/or make new ones (European LCC's? niche Euro carriers like Air Malta, Baltic Air, Aegean, Croatian?).
