Primera Air to fly from BOS to Birmingham, London & Paris

According to Routes Online, Primera Air will start flying from BOS to Birmingham (UK), London Stansted and Paris CDG next summer. They will also fly to EWR from those cities. They will be flown by A321neo, with 16C and 182Y seats. Airline Route is using 'C' for the premium cabin, but Primera Air's website describes it as premium economy, with seating that looks like US domestic first.

Another Norwegian-style ULCC play. Fine if you can roll with the inevitable added fees and irrops punches.

Also from Toronto, and it's cheaper for those able to drive to YYZ from Michigan, PA, and Western NY.

I find this is a good 1 way option if you want to take advantage of all those good J fare deals from Europe to NA or Asia.

Looking at their fees, all I can say is . $70 for a "premium beef" meal? What could that possibly consist of that makes airplane food worth $70?

That better be the 30 oz Tomahawk Ribeye from the new restaurant they opened at EWR.

The linked site shows that the premium beef meal is 29.99, or about $35. Where are you getting $70?

They're going to handle multiple flights to/from the same airport at very similar times. I hope they're not planning to combine flights when planes are empty, thereby adding a stop to some routes on random days.

Have you ever known an airline to do that? Doing so creates a logistical nightmare for the airline.

I missed that. (Obviously.)
I wonder if the $70 meal is the same one that they charge $35 for on the European flights.
In any event, I have never in my life had an airplane meal I'd pay $35 for, let alone $70. That includes first class and business class on most of the world's best airlines. Their food may be far, far better than the rest, but it's still airplane food. I'd rather take the $35 (or $70) and buy really good picnic fixings to bring along. Or eat before departure and <gasp> go for 7 hours without eating and eat again upon arrival!

Just got an email from Primera Air that my summer flight home from Birmingham, UK has been cancelled. A peak at their scheduling reveals that they are stopping there BHX - BOS flights after February.
