I was wondering the other day why none of the US carriers have not set up a regional airline of their own in the United Kingdom. E.g AA with American Eagle UK or something similar. Surely it would mean that more passengers could connect through hubs such as LHR where there is very limited services with frequent services to smaller airports. Seen as BA does not have any citiexpress a/c based at LHR it would make sense to do something about it.
Also surely wouldn't americans prefer to travel on their home countries airline?
Any views would be great. Cheers.
