First Salvo Fired in New Transatlantic Fare ware

Air France and Delta have launched the first assault on LHR with their first fare promotion effective March 30th 2008. $222 OW based on RT LAX-LHR.

As noted previously we anticipate a pretty hefty fare war for Coach passengers beginning March 30th.

With 4 Carrier groupings offering new Nonstop flights from LHR (NW-KL, CO, US and DL-AF)this is going to be a great boon for travellers to Europe next year.

So mark you calendars. Seats are now available for sale and will likely be common rated along the West Coast from flights to LHR. The ripple effect will be significant. Yields will be trashed.
