I wonder if AB will consider flying at least to BOS and in the evening to NYC now that the competition is gone for those flights.
1. Someone here said they'd have a hard time obtaining rights to fly to the US.
2. If they do obtain the rights, will they dare to fly from/to CRL?

They did get the right to fly to the US.

Indeed (mentioned before in this thread if I'm not mistaken).
I presume we (all ?) agree that if they dare to launch an evening flight to NYC and, let's say, a late afternoon flight to BOS, AB should operate from BRU since these flights should attract a substantial number of high yield pax and not Chinese tourists for whom the 60 km between CRL and BRU would not have made any difference.
CRL or BRU, AB won't have any feed on any side. So I highly doubt they'd make it. Their US rights are also 'just in case' for if some other airline would like to wetlease or charter an AB plane. Maybe in the long run, it might become feasable, but on a shorter notice I dont expect AB to venture outside China and wet lease...
