You think they are going to win more loyalty in Boston by flying to Brazil and Argentina? Cause that's all that's left in Latin America for them. Sure, let's keep staying away from a top 5 important destination out of Boston and London, so DL can keep cleaning up with the corporate clients.
Not to mention that they can't reach most of the relevant S.American cities from BOS with the fleet they have. However I fully expect them to expand S.America from FLL with the NEO at the same time they expand in Europe from BOS.
Why? I thought the current economic situation in South America called for supply reduction? For instance, AV dropping BOS...
There is enough demand out of FLL to Brazil and Argentina for them to launch them. That's the only places they would need LR/XLR for in Latin America.
However, FLL is secondary right now to their BOS buildup. And besides, LHR is a badly missing puzzle in their network out of JFK. Given how much prominence BOS is to all B6 planning these days and the possibility of JFK slots going away, TATL is a far higher priority. We are only 9 days away. Will find out soon enough what this news is about.

don't think they are ready this year. My guess is second half of 2020 at the earliest assuming that this announcement is TATL.

I fully expect them to enter JFK-GEO. But as shown with GYE announcement, they don't need special events to add new Latin American cities.
