Re: Norwegian Schedules new LGW-JFK-LGW and challenges Europeans to See New York City in 1 day

AA/BA don't have anything that leaves LHR that early. The earliest departure from LHR appears to be an 8:30am BA flight. AA and BA each do have one daytime (non-redeye) flight from JFK to LHR

The earliest VS/DL departure from LHR is 9:05am. VS does run one daytime (non-redeye) flight JFK-LHR.

The A321 is not JUST a 757 replacement. It is the highest revenue producing narrowbody jet you can buy.
