Reply To: Iberia Situation CriticalBack to Forum
I think that would be an error. It is essential that BA maintains direct non-stop flights to Latin America. However, its market is much more limited than Iberia´s. Thus the two hubs(LHR and MAD) should be complementary.
Mexico, Lima,Peru (to connect to Lan´s network), Buenos Aires (also to connect to Lan), Rio and Sao Paulo ( to connect to TAM) are the minimum number of destinations to be served from LHR. I would even say that Bogota, Quito and Santiago de Chile are musts because Lan provides onward flights.
The question is if LHR still wants to be an international hub or not.
