    It's crowd funded. Viva la difference. :) Plus while BA needs a refuel stop in Shannon, Odyssey would fly non-stop.

    Oh crowd funded never mind ;)

    I had actually thought the shannon stop would be beneficial since you can clear us customs there.

    I'm not sure regarding the customs clearance when it's only a refuel stop though.

    Would the UK fuel surcharges still apply? If yes, then nevermind.

    Odyssey: a long wandering or voyage usually marked by many changes of fortune

    Does that describe the launching of the airline or travel on the airline? (diversions to Iceland, Newfoundland, ...)

    Last I heard, BA 1, the morning departure from LCY gets the U.S. preclearance in SNN while the aircraft is refueled, but the later BA 3 does not get the preclearance as it leaves LCY too late and the U.S. C&I is closed at SNN by the time they arrive to refuel.

    And even with the new airline using the C-Series, will it have the legs for a nonstop to JFK, and even if it does, how do they plan to have it take off with a full fuel load on board from LCY's shorter runways in a city with skyscrapers very nearby? JATO available for the C-Series?
