Being from Boston I am lucky to spot a wide variety of traffic in and out of Logan Airport. I have noticed that there are more and more transatlantic flights both on american and european carriers. For example, three BA flights daily to LHR, two Virgin, two Swissair, two Lufthansa, Air France, Alitalia, two Aer Lingus, Sabena, Olympic in addition to United, American, Northwest/KLM to various points in Europe.
I am intrigued, can anybody explain the reason for this increase? Where is the demand coming from for these additional flights?
