British Airways new New York/London City Airport flights

February 19, 2010
Fares from Washington DC:

    Remember EOS, the all-business class airline with just a few dozen seats? Oh how we miss it. But now British Airways is trying something similar, with the added twist that flights land not at congested, far away London Heathrow, but at near-in London City Airport. These all-business class flights carry just 32 fully-horizontal seats. Because of short runways at London City, flights taking off for New York cannot carry a full fuel load and must land at Shannon for re-fueling, but while you're waiting for fuel you clear US customs at Shannon, so the flight lands as a domestic flight in the US--so basically it's a wash time-wise. Flights from JFK do fly nonstop to London, however. All flights have on board connectivity.

    We can't wait to try it!
