Am I right in thinking that years ago, Miami used to be served from Gatwick (via Kingston, Jamaica?). Is Miami more a leisure destination as opposed to be a business type one? If so, could moving it to Gatwick & adding it as a 'tag on' to another destination (in terms of one of the airlines curr...Jump to post

Be interesting to see how this all pans out in the medium-long term.

With WS being a low cost carrier, would they not be shooting themselves in the foot seeking slots at the UK's most slot congested and expensive airport (Heathrow) instead of staying at LGW?

Would a Gatwick-Philadelphia route work from Gatwick either on BA or DY does anyone think? I am aware that BA operate the route from Heathrow currently (Once daily with a 747?) and that DY don't operate it currently. Just curious more than anything else.

Would the 737 Max be able to cover the distance between LGW & Philadelphia does anyone reckon? Not suggesting that this particular city is in their sights, let alone be a route in particular demand either side of the Atlantic, I'm just wondering more than anything else.
Would there be any benefit in DY starting ops from Baltimore Airport instead of Washington Dulles does anyone think? I've never travelled to either airport myself, so forgive me if I'm wrong, but I'm guessing the former might be easier to obtain slots at, and said slots might also be cheaper? I am a...Jump to post
