These are Cleveland, Cincinnati, Detroit and St Louis.  All, apart from Detroit, are (for now, at least) not served by direct flights from London.

Flights to Detroit Metropolitan airport launch on Thursday 26 April 2018 (currently also served by Delta from London Heathrow).  Flights to Cleveland Hopkins International airport launch on Friday 4 May 2018.  Flights to Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International airport launch on Thursday 10 May 2018.  Flights to St Louis Lambert International airport launch on Thursday 17 May 2018.
