Despite the recent negative press on the all premium carriers and where that segment of the industy might end up, the apparent leader, Eos, isn’t slowing down at all. They’ve announced increases in service, adding Newark and Dubai as destinations, starting in early May andearly July, respectively.
In the meantime, British Airways is making the transatlantic experiencec even more intimate, planning service between London and New York with a Airbus 318 plane configured to hold 32 passengers. The flights will be from London City Airport, which is arguably the most convenient option for the financial industry. It will require a stop, however, on the westbound flight, as the plane will not be able to hold enough fuel to make the trip non-stop and also take off from the airport’s rather short runway. That would be enough to turn me off from it, but BA has high hopes.
