Lufthansa confirms that they will be sending he A380 on the Munich to Boston route starting for the summer 2020 season.
Cool, I think this rumor has been swirling a bit. It'll be the 3rd airline with scheduled (seasonal) A380 service to BOS (Emirates and BA both fly them to BOS now).

I've actually flown both in the last twelve months too for the same reason. Norwegian's Premium is one of the better values in the sky (less than standard economy on many airlines and a whole lot more comfortable).

Thomas Cook is gone though, I think. Virgin is doing the route on an A330 and it's not going well. For some reason, MAN-BOS is tricky. I could see Delta or Jetblue having success with a smaller plane.

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Would a JetBlue Mint A321XLR have the range for Basel-Mulhouse?

And should their strategy focus on primary/hub markets, or the "side of town" the Alliances aren't on?

Thomas Cook cut service to Boston after last year. You can add them to the list along with Air Europa, Air Berlin and Eurowings as European carriers who have come and gone from Boston recently.

Yes, JetBlue's incoming 321XLR will have the range to fly Boston to Basel. Jetblue will have the range to hit all of Western Europe and most of Central Europe from Boston and to a slightly lessen extent New York. This plane will also give them the ability to build out a South American network from Fort Lauderdale as Lima, Bogota, Cali, Barranquilla, Quito, Santiago, Caracas, and multiple cities in Brazil will all be within the plane's range. I think even Buenos Aires can be reached too.

They should focus on the larger cities where you have strong tourist demand - Lisbon, Madrid, Barcelona, Paris, Rome, London (which they have confirmed), Dublin and perhaps another Italian destination. By 2025, I could see them serving 8-10 cities in Europe from both Boston and New York.

How about Amsterdam and/or Brussels?

Is the essential element here "strong tourist demand" or "non-dominant hub"? Or even "Hispanic skew?"

Sure tourist demand is important, but on long-haul / Mint isn't the idea to captivate/capture the Boston business traveler who flies enough (and at last-minute fares) to matter, but not quite enough to be elite?

Delta announced today, on it's Q2 Earnings call, that they'll up their Logan flights to 200 per day over the next couple of years!

Also, Lufthansa will be flying an A380 daily next summer, BOS-Munich! I believe that will be three daily A308 Logan flights; BA, Emirates, and Lufthansa.

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Fantastic news. Not a big Delta flyer but its about time that Boston had a commitment from a full service global airline.

JetBlue is also growing at Logan, with some more flights to Reagan and Charlotte.

Re: Logan Flight Additions

Once Southwest leaves terminal A, that will give Delta 20 or 21 gates. It'll be interesting to see how they're able to make up to 200 flights a day work, especially given the that some gates get blocked when they have the 333/332/763s for flights to Paris, Amsterdam and London.

Delta is certainly making some nice moves in Boston as of late - expanding their network to Europe with seasonal service to Dublin, Lisbon and Edinburgh, in additional to their existing year round, daily service to London Heathrow, Paris CDG and Amsterdam. They have their partner airlines Virgin Atlantic, KLM, Air France and now Koreanair to feed into their Boston network. It's going to be interesting how things look at Logan come say 2024 once Massport is done with their major projects and JetBlue gets their European flights going. I could see Delta adding some seasonal Europe flights to places like Brussels and Milan.
