CO To Boost LHR Flights

CO is boosting its daily schedule from LHR to 7 come the October schedule. This includes 5 to NYC and 2 to IAH. With some slots acquired recently (presumably from BD who disposed of a few) this puts CO at a distinct advantage for the New York Market. With at least 3 of its services with the larger 777-200 planes, DL has no match with just 2 767-400s on its schedule.

You have to wonder if DL is playing a game here. Forcing the EC to hold BA and AA into a corner by not upping its schedule. The proposed BA-AA alliance has 13 nonstops this summer. Don't forget that CO also has access to the 4 Virgin flights.

Ah gotta love politics
