BDL for example opened the Escape Lounge around the time Aer Lingus began service. Though its not very big, and doesn't have showers.
Unfortunately, I do not see transatlantic service coming here anytime soon. Thomas Cook, WOW, and a couple other discount airlines seem to be struggling big time and falling into bankruptcy. Norwegian might be next. Those airlines seemed to be the type of airline that BUF would be targeting.
We know legacy carriers like Delta, Americans, United would drop dead before they would have any kind of Transatlantic service out of BNIA.
Maybe Jetblue but that seems like a stretch.
I definitely agree with you though, the way the club was designed, it was built for that type of service.
