BA to add direct LCY-JFK Service probably 2009

British Airways seems to be having a case of the weirds.

Fresh from announcing an airline with no rationality (OpenSkies) they are now announcing a new Biz Class only service from LCY to JFK using 2 just ordered Airbus A318s configured 32 seats only. But there is a catch....

It has to stop.

As in somewhere to fuel up. Thus adding up to to 2 hours elapsed time to the schedule.

If this is a precursor in order to convince someone that he nonstop could work - then OK. BUT this doesn't make any real sense if it will permanently be a one stop flight.

Doing the Math calculations:

Its marginal from Cannery Wharf in time improvement. And actually LOSES time if you are going from the West End.

Now where are they going to stop? Bermuda? Gander? and then a nonstop into LGA instead of JFK...

Sorry this is baffling.
