It'll be interesting to see if the BUR-IAD flights work out for them. Remember the BUR-MCO flights? Those didn't last long and I thought for sure those would have lasted.

I wonder if fares will...

Remember folks, the plane is being DELIVERED. It won't enter service for a few more months after delivery, so that the airline and the crew can get aquainted with it.
