Re: F9 Could Use A321XLR Order for Transatlantic

I would be surprised if they chose to go via KEF. Costs are high and the weather, particular during their long winter season, is quite bad. I would think they would pick a lower cost market in Europe, with higher traffic volumes. N.E. United States to Ireland may be a route that they could pack solid.
