About time and not surprised. Where else will BA add next?

PDX, STL, PIT seem like obvious adds.

I'm guessing this service will be operated with a 2 class 788.

Doubtful as BA don't have one.

I would love to see a direct flight from Nashville to London! (We have very few direct flights in the US. Going to London would be cool!)

Good stuff, finally a way to get to BNA without going to ORD.

Thanks for picking this up Tanaka07, it sounds a bit too specific to be way off beam. I guess this is one of the advantages of the US media's homegrown tentacles. It isn't great at the global overview but it certainly throws up the stories from the grassroots.

Excellent news! I am still waiting for the PDX, STL, SAT, TPE, SGN, and perhaps for utter confusion of folk, MHT (Manchester)

CBP folks will be brought to work for a couple of hours then, BNA doesn't get any international service aside from some CUN seasonals.

I thought SGN and CGK had been rumoured for a long time, but still seeing nothing

Would lquite like to see those as well but BA is too vulnerable to the ME3 and local airlines with a lower cost base, both of which offer direct flights to London and which are actually quite good if you don't care about OW. (And if you do care about OW, CX, MH and QR have you covered).

This might actually get my in-laws to come to the UK more than once every 4 years!
