The new Williston airport is in a physically different location than the old airport.

True above. But wouldn't American and LATAM have proposed a divesture? Or wouldn't that be an easy remedy? I think the DELTA-LATAM deal was a Chilean gov't move for it's home-town airline.

The pressure begins. How many BA daily between LHR and BOS now in S19? Is this AA flight addition more seats, or just a switch in operator? Does it mean that AA is going to fight more in BOS?

For example: Out of YUL, LYS will increase to 6x weekly, NCE will become Mainline up to 5x weekly with A333s and TLS will see an A333 5x weekly too.

Just a Thought...... I believe with Delta's investment into LATAM, they(LATAM) will consider re-opening a route to PTY which could lead to a SkyTeam focus city.

Another possibility is that Ed Bastian is coming to Boston to announce - with the Governor of MA - that Terminal A will get a real customs facility.
