As Stansted is being hailed the "new Heathrow" by the British Government, huge focus is being placed on the growth of the airport.
Would a US airline theoretically be allowed to switch all of its Gatwick flights to STN while beefing up frequency to The States, and offer connections via air from STN to LCY onboard an aircraft (operating in a shuttle, quick-turn manner) such as the ARJ-85 or Dash 8-300? The segment could not be sold as a separate STN-LCY flight, of course, but could be touted as a continuation service to the heart of London.
If the answer is yes, would this option actually be a good idea? Is LCY that convenient for the majority of business travellers into London? Would a LCY spur flight be more convenient than, say, taking the train from STN into the city?
