Kerb weight of a Routemaster 12.65 tonnes

Kerb weight of an F-35 22.4 to 31.8 tonnes

So a catapult should be able to throw a bus further. Give or take aerodynamics. Cheaper, and carry more rounds. With some chutes, may even be survivable but even if we do fit cats to the carriers, I doubt the Navy would let us try.
