AA has again pushed out the BOS-LHR flight for a start sometime in June. Makes me wonder whether UA will start at all. AA doesn't necessarily have to because BA has the market covered. I think UA will start and I think we're going to see a quick recovery in air travel up to a certain level. https:/...
