It is to all intents and purposes identical in Y.

I don't know why everyone is saying that we should use books. A hello this is 2014 and we are talking about a long haul route. On most airlines these days we have TVs and also possibly wifi so I was just pointing out how they have a competitive disadvantage.
aren't perfect either: take a look at their 747 interior, and some of their 767s aren't much better. Secondly, if you know in advance that you don't have AVOD then you can load up your iPad with movies and bring along your own; I did precisely that a couple of months ago flying Jetstar SYD
as they don't offer AVOD on a 10 hour flight, and it worked surprisingly well. Of course the difference is that not offering the services customers expect is more palatable on an LCC compared to a "full service" carrier,
One thing Frostyj is right about is that UA
is the carrier to beat in these markets, and it won't be easy. CO
have been flying to regional UK markets for a decade or more, and have built up a loyal FF
group within the business communities in these markets (among people who travel to the USA) as UA
is in many cases their number one option to the USA. EDI
will have more BA
loyalty, if only for the shuttle, but it has been years since BA
flew to BHX
is going to have to start from scratch.
