​​​​​Good news for London Gatwick if that's the case although I've not personally seen or read anything regarding this even on Bamboo Airways or London Gatwick social media accounts.
If you search for flights on their website there are no LHR flights available after the LGW launch.

Not sure their website is legal though as it advertises the return fare at $200 but once you click through it adds taxes and charges bringing it up to $611. I thought they had to be included from the beginning.

However Economy Saver includes a generous 45kg baggage allowance!

.....perhaps LHR issues/pressures are the reason why BA are now flying to JER again from LGW (1 daily at the moment)

Iím not totally certain but, I think that the Gatwick Route was requested by the States Of Jersey as part of a commercial deal for six BA flights per day from London to the island.

Ok, thanks, it appears to operate on an LHR based 319, which arrives on the island early evening, nightstops and then does a W to and from LGW in the morning before returning to LHR

Thatís tho one; Heathrow aircraft & Heathrow crews.. that gives us 2 BA night stops, when it operates. Again, as far as I know, BA are to stay on the Heathrow route indefinitely as part of the deal. Not totally sure of that , though.

Was planned a while back I think, in addition to JER staying at LHR.

Vueling was to base 4 aircraft at Lgw for the summer. Has this been reduced to one, as a result of required reductions?

Interesting to see from ACI data that in June 22 Palma had more total month passengers than Gatwick, relegating it down the top 10 for Europe.

Think I thought the first JetBlue BOS flight would have been chocker with press and dignitaries to fill it, but it went out with quite a lot seats empty including the various Mint options. Bet a lot of people still donít know about them and maybe need more UK based advertising.

Following up on this. JetBlue held their launch event at the US Ambassadorís house Winfield House. It seems there was a reception held for notable customers/clients and connections.

Its probably the same people they would have put on a press flight. Itís not like the invite random people along to show them the flight.

There may also be further events when LHR is launched. I know last time they did more then.

I'm not on the usual social media websites but I'm on LinkedIn and the coverage of the inaugural JetBlue flight from Boston Logan International to London Gatwick Airport has been well covered by the airline, as well as London Gatwick Airport, tourist boards and the media amongst others and not only the travel media. The inaugural flight was celebrated by JetBlue with airport staff and invited guests including "Gary Gatwick" himself.

There are lots of photos online of the event with some impressive photos showing two JetBlue aircraft alongside each other at the North Terminals Pier 5.

VS at LGW

Now with JetBlue serving both JFK and BOS from LGW, and Norse starting up JFK from tomorrow, does this make a VS return to Gatwick more likely? BA have also resumed their JFK flights, and Norse are rumoured to have further routes planned from LGW in the pipeline further down the line. Plus, with LHR currently plagued with numerous capacity restrictions at present, I wonder if VS would be tempted to shift the leisure/Caribbean network back to LGW, to allow the airline to utilise it's LHR slot portfolio for the more business-orientated routes? Surely VS will need to make a decision on LGW sooner, rather than later, or else risk losing their slots that they've hung onto.
