Re: Philadelphia route expansion?

Should American opt to run a significant A321neo operation from Philadelphia, I think PHL-BRU/EDI/BHX/KEF would make sense. The EDI spotters are convinced JFK-EDI is switching (or in addition )to PHL-EDI. Im sure PHL-EDI was tried once and scrapped. BHX always seems a bit of a dead duck on transatl...

Re: Air Canada prepares Rouge for ULCC competition

is it true that a 20 year old A319 had the same fuel burn as a 5 year old? I thought there had been incremental improvements in various aspects of engine build and aircraft build/component and weight over a 15 year period?

Im not so sure on EI LAS or PIT.
There most certainly is a degree of interaction between BA and EI. PIT I might think is too small a market.
BA has reduced LAS (along with others eg TCX). High summer (and high heat) at a push.
