    If there really was a market here, someone else with an alliance tie in (along with its existing customer base) would do it.

    Will a frequent traveller give up *A / OW / ST elite level status, points, and benies to save an hour?

    Well, if they ordered 10 aircraft, they are apparently not planning to succeed solely with this market.

    The fuel stop in Ireland isn’t that big a problem. It means that you go through US pre-clearance and arrive in JFK as a domestic passenger. Saves as much time as it wastes, apparently.

    Why DXB – because its another route where they’ll get a bloody nose? Are there that many people flying from LHR to DXB (vs. LHR-DXB-somewhere-else)?
