Keep reading this argument about BA, but people seem totally oblivious of the fact that it just works on that one route because of the route not because of anything else. Same way Concorde worked properly & profitable on only that one route. There's a reason why the A318 service was never expanded to DC as was planned some time ago.
Might be a few other European cities if aorcraft with enough range. Similar configuration have been used on a few other similar routes outside TATL too like India - Japan which isn't a really big market. But yes there aren't too many routes. My point was that there are still some niche where such thing is working.
