I agree with the view that north London and the northern home counties is a major market with no air link to NQY since Ryanair pulled off STN-NQY. Getting to LGW from this area is a pain even using Thameslink rail through central London, with its frequent delays and lack of through service at weekends due to engineering works. I'm surprised EZY haven't considered at least a daily rotation from LTN to NQY, possibly 2 x daily in summer. I know that Aer Arann operated this route several years back for one season, with poor load factors, but this was with ATR's and only operated several days a week, with little promotion in the media. As a result, one of the most prosperous parts of the UK has no effective air link to Cornwall.
