    I am assuming these are to European Gateway Destinations?

    I make this assumption because from BOS I only get FRA MUC and ZHR.

    Personally I would love it to be all international gateways from the city.

    So for Boston, FRA, MUC, ZHR, PTY, and IST. If we are actually saying MP able Destinations DUB should be added.

    Maybe also PSL, GCM, MBJ, CUN.

    Some could say that YYZ/YUL/YOW/YHZ should be included, but I would say they are wrong.

    Yes, it is TATL only. And the algorithm is based on where there are non-stop destinations to from that city. As there are not currently flights BOS-IST it isn't in the search list.

    Adding in regional destinations is not really on the roadmap right now. Maybe at some point further down the line but long-haul is the focus for the immediate future. That's partly to limit the load on the systems and partly because of the limited options from any city other than a hub. IAH has scores of LatAm destinations, for example, while only a handful of UA non-hub airports do. That's not particularly useful IMO, at least not more useful than the other options I'm working on.

    Nice in theory, unlikely in reality. I am working on a client-based approach which may help increase search options/frequencies but right now nothing to announce.

    I figured the answer would be as much. Good luck with your next step. Also, if you need a Client side tester let me know.
