On a strategic basis orientating the airline to add value through feeding long haul services that Virgin has will be no.1 priority.
That would seem to be the case, but:
  • LHR is slot constrained, so how much more than can they do there?
  • At MAN there is the issue of hubbing from a "challenged" T3 over to T2 for the Virgin LH
  • BE already collaborate with AFKL. Certainly there will be slot issues with increasing ops to AMS, and aren't there union agreements at KLM which limit the number of code-share flights that BE can operate?
