Although there are a lot of threads relating to Bermuda 2 I couldn't see the question I was looking for under them so here goes ....
Flights between the UK and US by UK and US carriers are governed by the Bermuda 2 agreement which , amongst other things , specifies that some destinations can be served from LON via LHR ( eg LAX , SFO , ORD etc ) but some can only be served from LGW ( eg ATL , IAH , DFW ect ) .
There are a number of airlines operating 5th freedom services between LON and US ( NZ / AI / KU - I think , not sure if LY still does or not )
so , my hypothetical question is :
are those rights governed by BII , or not . If not , could NZ for example choose to switch their LAX-LHR service to another airport such as DFW/ IAH / ATL etc from which neither UK nor US carriers can fly into LHR . Before anyone starts flaming me , I repeat this is hypothetical , I am not saying that they would or should ... just asking whether in theory they could
any of you BII experts out there know ??
( apologies in advance if this has been answered before )
