Same goes with EI and DUB, BA and LHR/LGW, etc. If/when DL orders it, you'll see a lot more European cities connected to JFK. You could also see them expanding southward into South America from ATL. Further, I could absolutely see them tapping into the secondary market in HNL, setting up a 797 base there and adding HNL-RNO/BOI/TUS/ABQ and the like. But maybe we're both a little too imaginative.
I'm certainly hoping it starts to connect some dots on BWI's European map. From what I've heard (rumblings, nothing substantial) it sounds like EI might send the A321LR to BWI when it arrives. I could see any combination of CDG, MAD, MUC, CPH, and AMS depending on who orders it.

Boeing and even the airlines presented it as an opportunity to open up point to point routes, but it’s stayed on relatively normal hub to hub or hub to spoke routes. I don’t think a whole new range of destinations will come on. It will just replace the planes already on those routes
