For the time being at least, it seems that the long-haul branch of Level will continue, despite the short-haul part of the business ceasing to trade today. I would be surprised to see that change, given that a low-cost long-haul operator still makes strategic sense for BA’s parent company IAG.
That said, I wouldn’t rule out anything entirely these days!
