Primera Air drops Birmingham to Boston before it even launches

Before the route even launched, Primera has dropped its proposed low-cost Birmingham to Boston service.

The four times weekly service was set to launch on 22nd June 2018 but if you look at the Primera website now, you can no longer book.  It looks like you can still book Birmingham – Newark as well as Birmingham – Toronto.

Primera also seems to have had second thoughts about their food pricing (meals are not included).  Primera was charging a ludicrous amount for their on-board dining with the premium fish meal being £60 and a standard infant meal £30.

A quick look at their website shows that the airline has come to its senses with the fish meal now £30 and the infant meal £12.  Not that I think there will be many takers at £30 either.
