Hello World!
As you may know, British Midland are re-comencing flights to the U.S. after 18 years.
Does anyone know:

b) Which cities they flew to?

In April 1970 the first 186-seat Boeing 707-321 joined British Midland and were but to work on the New York, Toronto, Caribbean route. I will try to find out more information as to why they stopped.

I mite be wrong on this   In September 1971 BMA lost £1.67 Million. so it started wet-leasing it's B 707's to other Airlines needing short-turm capacity.
