There will still be a market from Gatwick to the US, and with reduced service by other carriers, it can be even more profitable than it is today. American Airlines also plans to remain at Gatwick.

Ive wondered something. Why doesnt AA switch both frequencies from DFW to LHR and put the LGW frequency at ORD? ORD-LON market is a lot bigger than DFW and instead of serveing both LON airports from DFW, why dont serve them from ORD?

So is it worthwhile for BA to fly to both JFK and Newark? Of course. The catchment areas are different so are the demographics of the passengers.

This question stems from the thread DL to Announce Latest International Expansion This Week' , where a few fellow a.netters speculated which US Gateways will get some of the 3 LHR slots DL purchased.
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 3):|
ORD-LGW will be a MUCH stronger possibility if AA and BA get ATI, as the two would have a ridiculous frequency advantage on ORD-LHR even if AA ran a flight to LGW.
|Quoting Nickofatlanta (Reply 10):|
Anyone think they may announce LHR on Tuesday?
|Quoting ConcordeBoy (Reply 11):|
One may not lead to another... remember, intercon carriers are often not allowed to invoke ATI on hub2hub routings.
However, with the amount of non-OneHeathroWorld competition on ORD-LHR, AA/BA may be allowed (some) collusion after all.
