Excellent...a six-hour all-coach flight (EMS is still coach). What wonderful news.

Don't kid yourself...it is blocked at 7+ hours southbound.

This was tipped last week during the A321LR conversion news; it was announced before London. JFK-GEO was as well, though that's likely a 2020 route, not 2019.

EMS is better than LATAM coach. The timing on the way back is key. LATAM leaves GYE at like 845 and gets into JFK at 4 which kills the day. The B6 redeye is a really solid addition, If I wanted to fly overnight previously it would be a 4 hour haul to MIA and then a 2.5 up to JFK in which even in J your getting no good rest...
