Re: Likely BA Heathrow route additions from Gatwick

I think the only Gatwick flight that can be moved to Heathrow is Tampa. With Lufthansa and Norwegian entering the market as well as Delta opening AMS route, BA has to be defensive. The new Gatwick 777 would have too much capacity while Heathrow 788 may be a better fit. Plus it could benefit from He...

Re: Likely BA Heathrow route additions from Gatwick

This could open 3 to 7 slot pairs for long haul. Think about the frequency of Dublin, Madrid, Paris and Frankf...

19 is a too small number. AA has to lock one seat for pilot which means out of the 20 there are only 19 seats. It may work for secondary stations but I don't think it is good for market like London. Currently AA flies B788 between ORD and LHR, I wonder that would be changed.
