In general, that must be right.

But the LCY-JFK service is (as I understand it) more-or-less aimed at a handful of big corporate clients at Canary Wharf. So the service might still be demanded or even required by the people that matter, even if as a matter of market generality there is a lot less premium travel.

It might end up being rather like the GlaxoSmithKline corporate shuttle across the Atlantic, on which Joe Public can also help out by buying the odd revenue ticket from AA.
