BA only operates LHR
- BDA a few times a week (it might be LGW
doesnt really care for the route and has sole rights on routes starting from the Island.
They only operate it to keep the competition out.
High prices on the island and BA
's monopoly make it expensive from Europe so the island suffers because of this.
Bermuda needs to get rid of the BA
monopoly and all of a sudden a few more european carriers may discover the island... and prices may fall.
It's called the free market.
Until then it's an Open market for North American carriers to the island without fear of "local" competition.
Personally BDA as a hub from the east coast US with a BDA based airline.... now theres a winning idea, especially with the stop over options....
Lets face it i'd rather connect in BDA than DCA
! if I were heading from North to South ?
and probably less East Coast traffic in the way
So far in 2008 45 flights and Gold already. JFK, IAD, LGA, SIN, HKG, NRT, AKL, PPT, LAX still to book ! Home Airport LCY
