Unfortunately not, it wont be LHR. Due to slot restrictions. Only LGW or STN.

When if ever do you think they’ll add additional European destinations from JFK and BOS?

The kind-of-obvious choices would be Amsterdam or Paris. I don't know if they would want to go counter to 'conventional wisom' and pick a place like somewhere in Germany.

Maybe in some other parallel universe but not in this one.

Looks like the official presser will be April 10th.
Yes, we will see what happens. Either way LGW or STN. I think STN is the logical choice. I think it is better way to fly to STN.

it's going to be LGW-BOS/JFK

LGW best because strong Easyjet presence for onward connections, but also strong(ish) appeal for London-bound pax.

I saw in another article the problem for them could be onward connections from LHR or AMS or CDG, but B6 could look for codeshare partners.

Unless they're going to try to code with RyanAir or EasyJet, I cannot imagine BA, VS, KL, AF, LH, et al coding with them and harming their highly profitable JV's.

That's a good point. I can see them just focusing on Paris/London but without a feeder network it'll have a lower natural capacity cap.

I just heard from an friend in the industry that this will be WAY bigger than we thought. Not just a simple one or two European route additions

Are we talking full feeder networks and multiple hubs? I can't see them getting THAT much penetration without teaming up with a current EU airline. Plenty of the major airports are at capacity as it is.

STN will never work. Many airlines trying TATL there have failed. It is a dump miles away from London, and full of chavs. I was rather hoping for TXL-RSW but that doesn't seem likely.

I'm really hoping what he heard is true! Announcement coming soon!

Well now. That's a horse of a different color.

Yes, they did. They tried in the past and it didn't workout so well. I think it will be LGW or LTN. LGW is the logical choice. It should be done very well.
