Re: Rumor: DL announcing new BOS routes next week.

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. So no more arriving at E and slepping to A, plane included. That would be a large expansion project. Given all of the other projects happening at Loga...

I believe it was this for summer 2019: London Heathrow - 1 daily Edinburgh - 1 x daily Dublin - 1 x daily Paris - 1 x daily Amsterdam - 2 x daily...

It'll be interesting to see who takes the new club space in the E expansion? Per the plans, there's space for 4 airline clubs. BA and LH already have their new clubs about E10-12 and EK added one in Boston. Maybe Boston will get a Centurion Lounge?
