Given the size of B6, I see 2 possible options, EasyJet or Jet2.

Norwegian and Ryanair are far too big to consider.

Highly doubt it'd be Easyjet.

Not sure what makes you think Norwegian is bigger than easyJet.

Honestly Norwegian going to JetBlue would be a fantastic outcome for all parties (incl. passengers), but I doubt it'll happen. I think DY is too big and losses too much money. They do both offer free inflight WiFi though

Thomas Cook makes sense. Norwegian would be huge. Kind of a natural fit, but no idea how Jetblue would cough up the cash for that.

FWIW, an FA on a recent flight commented that the cabin setup for the trans-Atlantics would be Mint, a new premium economy offering, and then regular economy. No idea how accurate this is, but it would make sense to go for a lower-density higher-yield config, esp. on winter eastbounds.

Honestly? I had them both open in my Bloomberg terminal and was looking at them backwards.

Sorry.

A PE product? I'd love to see what they do with that.

Their Fleet is 24 Airbus A321s, 7 A330-200s and 2 Boeing 757-200s so there is much compatibility there. They have slots at most of the London airports, including LHR. They have also have partnered with a decent list of other airlines.

I worry about the debt, but it would make an interesting company.

Um, U2's current market cap is comfortably in excess of B6's. And the Haji-Ioannou family controls something like a third of the shares, so that won't be happening.

Wondering... if it actually is the case that they announce European routes in April, how soon would it be realistic to assume that flights would actually start? Or is something like that too random to guess?
