Re: Aer Lingus Commences A321LR Transatlantic Flights

I am sure the new A321LR could open Washington DC , Toronto and Montreal , increase Boston and New York flights and open some key market...

May be : Madrid to New York-Newark, Chicago, Washington, Seattle and San Francisco

Re: Iberia set to grow another 6% next year, mostly in Europe

I could see 3x weekly CPT winter only work. Perhaps on the days when LGWCPT and MADJNB aren't operating (257). Definitely , MAD-CPT on IB 3X should perfectly work. I believe MAD-CPT should be on the table for IAG/IB as a coming new long-haul from MAD. Another one, I see working MAD-MCO on Norwegian .

The chances of IB establishing a hub in BCN are zero. Even if IAG (London) saw some potential in that, IB would block it from the start. IB can not block a business decision made by the IAG board as IB is a subsidairy of IAG holding and it doesn't work that way. An IB hub in BCN won't happen becaus...
