I’m assuming the likes of EasyJet, Ryanair, TUI, Jet2, Wizz etc. will be the likely airlines launching routes from SOU but would there be enough demand for them to operate from both BOH and SOU?

Ability to take higher payloads and operate in more adverse weather conditions with an extra safety margin would be the main reason I would have thought.

I can't imagine SOU will be taking 787s any time soon.
