They are looking mainly at coordination in the Northeast BOS, NYC hubs. NK in recent weeks has been lodging complaints to the DOJ about B6 and AA aligning ...

How far could B6 get into Brazil with the LR or XLR from, say, MCO and/of FLL? Looks like as long as the XLR has a range of 4,000 nm, it will be able to reach anywhere in Brazil from FLL.
