OpenSkies: New route and fewer seats

The BA subsidiary OpenSkies announced last week that they will launch their second route, New York – Amsterdam on October 15, 2008.  And they’ll be doing so with 18 fewer seats on their planes.  When they launched their service earlier this year they had Business, Premium Economy and Economy seating.  They’ve decided that the demand for the Premium Economy product is high enough that they will be pulling out the regular Economy seats and replacing them with more Premium seats.

So apparently now the all premium cabin airline is back again, this time with two classes of service that are both premium, just one more premium than the other. 

Also, this move means that OpenSkies will be operating from both of the main European hubs for the Air France/KLM conglomerate.  I guess it is payback for Air France going after the London – Los Angeles route.
