Probably because the competition ex EGCC - AA, CO, VS, DL/VS - all have 2-class offering and TCX / MT need to have a similar level of service to attract those pax who want to have a better level of service than Y but aren't prepared to pay the prices charged by the American carriers for their bog-basic cattle-class and certainly won't stump up the extra for 'business'.
